mail art monday

i received the best surprise in the mail! j was leaving the house and in the front hall he shouted "will you come to the door for a second?" but by the time i ran to the front door he had left! i was incredibly confused until i saw this package from my friend kristy waiting at the door. i spent a great deal of time unwrapping it so as not to damage the paper - which was a collage of old vintage art-vertisements.* i had to laugh when i opened the envelopes because it was full of the same images, which had been painstakingly cut from another piece of the same paper for me! inside was a fantastic book called "succulent wild woman" - i'm so excited to delve into it!

* i just made that word up but i like it.


  1. Ooo, happy mail surprise! My favourite! What a good friend.

    I totally approve of the word "art-vertisements", btw. :)

    PS. Also agree with "Art-Vertisements"
