 In the night I wrote a  letter  to dear Mano
I added a few old photos from the fleamarket for her tiny boxes project to it
 and fold it like that and fixed it with masking tape:

The whole act reminds me on the pretty movie 'Bright Star' of Jane Campion... so you, too?

 In the morning through the pouring rain I walked to the post office to buy some pretty stamps... close to a field of peonies and smiling Franz Beckenbauer (the young one).

Look at those stamp... it isn't really pretty but 'Soccer Delighted Germany' (and me...) !

Now I hope that the ink did not wishy-washy 
because of the rain and the letter will arrive just in time to dear Mano, our hostess of this 
week's drawing challenge with... LETTER!

For more correspondence have a look at her amazing world, please.

  13. What a perfect romp! I love this journey of the written word, done in the light of candles with a stick pen nib made of metal on paper made from plant life fibres and created with the human hand and heart and walked to a post office to be mailed...and then the receive the missive. The whole thing is just so perfectly great! Thank you for sharing Ariane *smiles* Norma
    p.s. I was thinking that a great theme would be 'little' book, or 'tiny' book.

  14. Dear Ariane, such a lovely thing to do for Mano! It was fun going along to the postoffice with you. Thanks for the walk. :) Carole

    also, your kiddlets on the tree tops! Oh my. How Greta would love this. Fun and challenging time while in the woods, what could be better?
