Heebee Post #1057 - Fennabee - Antwerp - Belgium

 This stunningly vibrant and classy envelope is the fabulous work of Fennabee, a clever Belgian artist making a fine debut here in Heebee Jeebeeville. Her use of various interesting paper material and paints makes for a splendidly gorgeous decorated envelope. There is a very fun, high energy quality to it - reminiscent  of a dance hall showgirl in a chorus line Can-Can troupe.  The translucent glassine envelope adds to it's colorful uniqueness.  Love, love, love it!
If you do not recognize this Italian film star, who was referred to as the "Most beautiful woman in the world" during her height in the 1950's - You should know her now. This handsomely alter-adorned card, is the visage of the statuesque Gina Lollobrigida.  Like her contemporary constituents, Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot, she was a giant in the international cinema industry and beloved by myself as a child.   
Fennebee also included this short note, expressing a desire to exchange some postal art - Well, the answer to that request is a big smiling "Yes" from me! Sending something out to you today.

I thought I might add her address from the backside of the envelope - in case anybody else might want to swap some mail art with her. Thanks Fennabee, great little package of delight. See you soon in the mail.
