there's 2 things that money can't buy, that's true love and homegrown tamaters

yesterday my across-the-street neighbors, the Brunson-Williams' , brought me a sieve full of garden harvests....

mister kite obviously had to give it a sniff...


this is the garden goodness they brought just a few days ago...
now they can't give their tomatoes away fast enough...is your garden as fecund as theirs?

now, i have never paid attention to those in the art circles gush about going to Artfest but i happened to be cruising around the cyberhood yesterday when, lo and behold, i came across the site for Artfest 2008...the more i investigated the more excited i became... i downloaded the registration form and filled it in, thinking, ok, maybe i can make this happen....i got really excited when i thought about telling my friend, lisabeth, and begging her to consider the notion of meeting me down in washington state.... she only hesitated for a quick few hours and then shot me an email saying yes!!!!! she would get in her application... here's mine...just a bit of mailart ( i overnighted it today)...


i am excited to have the potential to hang with some high caliber artist and LB...more as we go along...

i spent way more time on this mailart for my sis in sacramento...



the gal at scotchies, the dry cleaner/mail place, thought i was wacked to be taking pictures of my mail...you can't see it well but there is a section of steaming romance novel up where my address should be... i hope she reads all about Teal and Chase's love life... a surprise gift for her...can't tell...shhhhh...

do you do mail art? i would love to get links to it or even better, receive some from you.... there are blogs dedicated to mail art....more on this later....
