In: from Korea

This beautiful map card above came along with this wonderful mail art, you see below, created by Kim JungYoun from Korea. She manages to make a kind of minimal mail art, which I admire, because I am not able to create it, as mine is always (too) full with details.

To the envelope she sticked this postage stamp, showing one of my favourite subjects: mail and mail related objects!

And inside the envelope some more envelopes, among them this one from Australia:

Which contained a nice brochure about animals, and three prints of drawings from Sydney, created by the Italian artist Pepe Gaka who is currently living in Sydney. Among them these two, of the famous Opera House and one of my favourite bridges, the Sydney Harbour Bridge:

She traveled to the USA as well, and found there these ad cards and postcard. Thank you so much for sharing, Kim!

In: from Morocco

Recently I received this Sheep postcard from Eva. I scanned it last week, but was busy doing other things after that.
So I planned to post it the coming weekend, when I suddenly saw that Eva blogged about sheep (more or less) today! Apparently today is a good day to publish Sheep postcards, and I am happy to show you this wonderful picture, taken in Poland by photographer majeczka (Maria Wachala).
Wish I was there in that peaceful quiet landscape, instead of here in too busy times!..

Eva has sent me an other great sheep postcard, which I will keep for (and cherish) myself. Alas lack of time keeps me from my wish to publish all mail I am receiving (and sending). I learned that turning all received and sent mail into digital blog posts takes a lot of my time and will restrain me from sending out snail mail. And that analogue action of course (snail mail lovers will understand) has some priority :-)
