Surely all this is not without meaning

Surely all this is not without meaning

This amazing envelope came to me from Liz, a very talented mail artist. I forgot to take a photo of the back or the contents - she included some weird and wonderful postcards, and vintage NKOTB trading cards with gum. Wow.

I love how she uses a variety of stamps, both legal U.S. stamps and artistamps and stamps from foreign countries. How awesome are those sleepy cat stamps from Japan?? And I can't quite tell where it's from, but is that a cat writing below the flag stamps?

  1. The writing cat stamp is a UK Royal Mail stamp from the 1994 "Greetings" series. I knew I had seen it before, I have the set of postcards for this stamp series but I've already sent the cat one. :)
