I received a gem in the post this week from Anna Searle, an Illustrator from Newcastle, I have been admiring her illustrations via her blog for a while, intricate geometric scapes in beautiful colours are right up my street. She has also just opened an Etsy shop selling vintage treasures which is definitely worth a visit.
It was the envelope that just kept giving, I felt like I’d found treasure, it contained mountains of art and ephemera created and collected just for me;
A beautiful original drawing of a compass that I love and cant wait to frame
A delicate handmade paper box with geometric design that opens to reveal a teeny dragonfly; so precious
Some vintage Snow White stamps that are just adorable
A small handmade scroll reading my favorite word
A bag a textile goodies; SO many pretty ribbons, swatches, buttons and some paper cuttings of vintage adverts
These are my favorite buttons, I would like to make a piece of jewelry out of them.
(Thank You Anna for your peachy piece of mail joy, I hope you can be patient for my reply, as I’m taking a break from mail art for a month or two to organise my shop!)
