FinnBadger (12)



Usually, if I post regular cards, I do so on an other location.
But these Dragons came in such an amazing mail art envelope, that I decided to use them as an alibi to post the envelope here on the Real Weird Animals blog.



And notice the stamps! Issued in honour of 150 years of Canada, the complete serie contains ten different stamps, depicting ten unforgettable moments from the past 50 years.

Created by FinnBadger from the USA, who managed to send it via Canada! That amazing journey is worth noting, too!

Thank you very much, FinnBadger!

Elliot from China created this beautiful envelope. Besides the Woman, she added wonderful Horse stamps to her mail for me, plus a Year of the Dragon stamp.

And inside the envelope a kind letter, plus a wonderful stamp: Horses pictured and printed on silk!



Thank you very much, Elliot!

Jimmy Connors (2)



An new collage, a kind of Human being, by Jimmy "F." Connors from Germany.

On the back side of the card there are traces that someone (postman? mail monster?) must have eaten the stamp from top left...



Thank you very much, Jimmy! Herzlichen Dank, F.!

The title immediately made me grab this mail art card to learn the answer to the question which keeps me busy already for ages. How to perforate (arti)stamps?

Please don't give up, Mouse, we'll find the answer one day!

Sent by Cascadia Artpost, created by WastePaper??, with thanks - or apologies, I read - to the amazing George Herriman.



The back side shows nice artistamps and USPS stamps. Thanks to Cascadia's instruction manual I learned that the solar eclipse is caused by...



... the Moon!

On the 21st of August the Peeps in the USA can see this total eclipse.

Thank you very much, Cascadia Artpost!
