    Oh what a pleasant surprise! This arrived today and appeared on the site on the same day. Lovely timing Jimmy. I’m surprised the pastels stayed intact through the whole journey. They are great stamps on here

    That timing coincidence (or was it planned?) could be a mailart 365 first!

    • Jimmy Connors says:

      Glad to hear that it has arrived. Isn’t it mail art only once it went on the journey (and best arrived at its destination)? I hope that the pastels have left some little marks on other letters…

      • andytgeezer says:

        Definitely! I think if it’s art and it goes in the post, we’re on to a good thing 🙂

        Some of us are saving up our mailart for a single big send out, so you may not see some of them in the post for a while, but rest assured they will go in the post.

          My point was what can be seen here is not yet mail art …

            I don’t think that’s true. I think mailart is in the intenton as much as the act. perhaps it fulfils it’s destiny when it goes in the post, but it’s made with the intention of travelling the postal system, so it’s mailart. Yes there are mailart blogs which show the received post after it’s arrived, but I think that a chronicle of post with the intent of sending is still a faithful record of mailart.

            Wish we could have this conversation over coffee with some postcards ready to send! Text really doesn’t work as well for this sort of discussion!

    The oddest thing about this picture was that I have an identical footstool. I had to do a double-take, because when I looked at the picture, it could have been taken in my house!

  • andytgeezer says:

    Haha! I just received the little one today! Thing is, it got sent to my neighbour at number 3 who was just about to throw it out when he took a second look at it and thought it would be a good idea to check if it were for me 🙂

    Thanks Jimmy!
