Val's card is an altered card from Budapest, with Hungarian text. Val added a little Magyar stamp and three tea choices for us. Hmm, I think I'll try the The Mandarine. What about you?
This image shows some of the cool things that Val sent to Patricia. Items from a Viennese Tea shop, with a menu and lots of information about tea, and also a flyer for a local theatre production (Mr. Tea pot head.) Let's meet at Betty's, the menu looks terrific.
Simon sent in 4 pen drawings, which appear to be about the tea shop engulfed in smoke! The drawings came just as you see them, with the image, stamp, and the address all on the same side. One was on a thin layer of paper. All made it through the post just fine, I'm happy to say. Thanks, Simon.
Look at this fabulous shaped mail art. Patricia passed this along to me today when I stopped in to say hello. She was so taken by how it was a tea pot. It made it all the way from Australia with no trouble, and the stamp wasn't canceled. Great job, Annie M. Thanks.
This lovely tea collage came in an envelope with a butterfly stamp. I think it's perfect for this mail art call, butterflies signifying re-birth, which is what will happen for Carytown Tea once the old place is renovated. When they move back into their space, the gold frame will be filled with fabulous mail art like this piece. Thanks, Hester.
Don't you love the headline? Good thing Fluxus West artist Keith Buchholz circled the article related to tea. We might have really gotten interested in the Trophies. Thanks, Keith. As always, your contributions are a good addition to mail art shows.
