and yet more mail art

But this time for a good cause, the saving of the tiny little post office in Rupert VT where Jane Davies lives. The linked blog post says she owns it. I'm not sure what that means cause I thought the government owned the POs but maybe she owns the bldg? 

Anyway, it's threatened with closure so she's working on upping the volume of mail by putting out a call for postcards. The PO is a charming little thing, complete with its own chickens, so I sent a card.

Background is another gelli print (what else?), some gellied phone book page strips, and some images from a November  1946 The American Home magazine. Love the stunned expression on the little girl's face. She was from a different ad than the laundry soap. Check out the soap price - $0.75 cents for 5 POUNDS. Did some stitching for textural interest and glued it all down.

  1. I gotta do this... she showed she has already gotten a whole bunch of post cards but a few more won't hurt!
