Hot Mail


I included packets of red pepper flakes to make it true hot mail. Had to tart up the bag even more! 


The napkins make interesting stationery. Faber Castell Pitt markers work well for fine lines while COPICs never fail if you skim across the surface with a light hand. "Fried Green Tomatoes" kept me company while I let my muse hold the reins; it inspired this one-of-a-kind letter-writing paper art. I read FGT when it was released ages ago, and I've seen the movie about four or five times. Such a stellar cast deserves more viewings, and so it will be. My favorite line has to be what Sipsey said about the sheriff and the egg's exit-way.  

Anyway . . . There's more than enough space for a chatty letter; there was room for more than a few little drawings to embellish a second sheet of "stationery" repurposed from a nice Kroger bag. 


The same bag lent itself to becoming a light yet sturdy envelope. 

Today was a good day too. There was incoming mail! JC bought lunch. I watched an episode of Death Valley Days. It's called "The Last Letter." Have you seen it? The story might have been taken from Neither Snow Nor Rain. Chances are good that it was. But that's fodder for another post. I reckon it'll be worth the read. 

Stay tuned.

  1. oh my gosh I love all of those . so I have decided that I will be painting some rocks this weekend and make them look like fish , cute veggies etc to throw in the garden ., I used to do that everywhere I have lived throw a painted rock somewhere in the ground . I think it is nice to have my art throwed everywhere I have lived sort of like I was here thing you know ? I just kind of like the idea of leaving a little piece of me behind . Is that morbid ? crazy ? what ? don't know . But I just like the idea oh well be well and stay well .

    1. What a novel idea. I like it. Will you share some of your rock art on your blog? Will you do a potato one just for me? No, your idea is not morbid. It's creative, unique, and totally you. :)
