Heebee Post #1104 - Neosho - Chicago, Illinois - USA
This handsome piece of artful correspondence was snuggled nicely into a clear plastic envelope and was a pleasure to extract it from the magic box that hangs near my front door.
I didn't find her to talk to again (ugh!). But, I did send her a postcard shortly after I returned home from the XPF Expo down south. And then, her mail art package came and I now own one! This gorgeous little fired and glazed envelope is now my mail art talisman. It will be going around my neck soon, after a visit to the craft store for a proper neck hanging string or chain. This really made my day!
Included in this package was a superbly written note. I don't post personal correspondence although I will tell you that I was rather amused to find her thoughts were quite similar to my own!
She also expressed that she was trying to slow down the seemingly, festively fast paced San Francisco event, because it seemed to be racing by and I couldn't concur more, that it just went too darn fast! Ah well, we sure had fun!
The memories of people in their old age are the deeds of folks in their prime. XPF will definitely be something I will always remember - Yes, it was that great! Thank you very much Neosho - I'm sure looking forward to future nutty art dealings between us in the post. You were a darling to meet and I shall see you in the mail!
