In the Mail: An Autumnal Feast!

The list of those to whom I owe mail just keeps growing… like the plethora of leaves currently falling from the trees!

Take a look at this bountiful haul and you’ll see what I mean…

Hedgehog mail art from Sheri Rice! I can’t help but wonder if she’s going through the entire alphabet.

The latest Banana Rag (in a gorgeous envelope) arrived from none other than Anna Banana, complete with artistamps! I’m in love!

Thomas Brown continues to amaze…

It’s been a while since I received a piece from Douglas Galloway. It must be said that he was the first IUOMA mail artist from whom I received mail. His digital art is always a delight.

Keith Chambers was kind enough to send me a little something orange.

This beautiful collage from Adrienne Mason really dressed up the box, the day it arrived! Natural elements with a touch of orange! Who wouldn’t love this piece?

Tiffany Bahan sent a wildly colorful piece from Ohio. I thought the print had great texture.

This most awesome collage from Susan McAllister has so much going on, that I notice something new each time I look at it.

Last month, David Stafford combined the work of Nancy Bell Scott with a piece I sent him and added his own handiwork to create the piece below. When he posted it, my response was that I wanted a print I could frame for the studio. David obviously seeks to please…

Arriving on the very same day, from David, was ‘The Walrus’ She Gone, a Tale of New Identities.’ It arrived complete with the offer of ‘A Thrilling New Superfluous Service.’ It really did deserve its very own blog post, but as most of you know, I’m finding it difficult to post weekly these days. Check it out:

Many thanks to all for the wonderful mail art! You guys are awesome!

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the Mail: More Awesomeness!

So certain I had published this blog post last week… but when I went to begin a new one, here it sat….

Before I get into the roll call of Awesomeness, I just want to say that I am dangerously close to publishing my 100th blog post here at Trash Bubbles and Life’s Little Bits! It must be said that the blog is nearing 100 followers as well. I was thinking that we need to do something to celebrate… but what? PLEASE leave your ideas in the comments section!

Now, on to the Awesomeness!

The following pieces came my way via the Whimsical Garden exchange. From Jackie Davidson, ‘Where Faeries Dance’ arrived, along with a print from the hostess, Jill Adamy.

Mail from Dean Marks (Paris, France) is always a joy to receive and this piece is no exception. Tour de France and so much more!

Corrine Gilman (Massachusetts) has been restoring an old farmstead this spring and summer. You can imagine my surprise at hearing from her, considering how much she’s had on her plate.

Prior to leaving for Quebec City on vacation, Mim Scalin (Virginia) sent this piece, a print of one of her collages.

D.S. Kohlberg (Florida) surprised me with an encaustic piece entitled, ‘Words Escape Me.’

The collage stylings of Jane Smith (California) always makes me smile. 😀

And last, but not least, Amy Irwen from Minnesota sent this piece. The collage, acrylic and stitching atop the texture of the paper towel background was refreshing. The envelope was not too shabby either!

Thanks to everyone for all of the AWESOMENESS that graced my mail box recently!

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
