In from the Artist in Seine. This one involved some opening that I had to do to get to the Ohlala.

Faces from Fabienne

They're masks, rather than faces, but it made for a more alliterative title :)

Fabienne joins the spontaneous mail club :)

Check out the amazing matching stamp featuring the work of Michelangelo Durazzo, an Italian photographer (1935-1993).

Inkblot Mondays part 3

It's time for another inkblot.







What do you see?

I'll be back in a week to share my thoughts.

A link to last week's ink blot.

Bonus - the envelope in which I sent my inkblots to the host, Honi:

Sunday Stamps: photographs

Photographs are the subject of today's Sunday Stamps.

Eva sent me this card with a photo of Bab Nwader, one of the gates of the old city walls of Tetouan in Morocco.







In an odd coincidence, I had just bought a card showing an independent bookstore in my neighborhood to send to her.


And I chose stamps with black and white photos. Two from the sheet Masters of American Photography issued in 2002., and one from the sheet Building a Nation issued in 2013.


For more photography on stamps, head over to the links at Sunday Stamps.

Black and white and Chagall

A striking Sephora bag from Eric, with a stunning Chagall stamp.


I like the appropriate washi tape on the back. Matched by the mail barcode.
