#44 Mail Art received & sent

I'm one of the lucky recipients of KS Chambers' pop-art soup series. Three postcards have arrived during the past few weeks. And to my surprise, recipes for alligator soup and walrus fin soup actually exist--perfect for a wintry day.

And found in my mail box was a retro memorial to roadside attractions from Connie Jean.

Coffee Love, an add & pass journal, arrived this week. In my stash I found a napkin 'canvas' which I had painted with coffee. I decided to include this little treasure, a memento from Caribou Coffee Cafe in Winter Park, Colorado.   After completing 16 pages, I sent the journal to the artistic  Amy Irwen, Rosemount, MN.
