mail art monday | nineteen twenties mail art

a couple of weeks ago i received a letter with no return address, simply a heart and the inscription "H2." j and i had fun guessing who it might be. it was the writing that gave away my friend hilary, but it wasn't until i opened it that i understood the "h squared" - it was a joint letter from my old roommates hilary and holly. after i got over the jealously of knowing they'd spent time together, despite living in two different provinces, i was able to enjoy the letter. they even gave me a gift - a twenty-five dollar "loan" to be donated however i deem appropriate on kiva.

since they would no longer be together by the time i wrote them back, i instead created two twin pieces of mail art with a corresponding nineteen twenties flapper/fashion theme. hopefully they have as much fun finding these in their mail box as i did making them!
