I had a message from Claire asking if I'd received a change of address card from her. I'd read about these, but alas, had not been the recipient…
A Dinsmore envelope shouts DINSMORE in a quiet, tranquil, cat-storke of a way. When it arrived I was delighted and expectant.
I commented in an earlier blog about how each element of a Dinsmore composition is 'just right'. This time I notice the graphic choices, particularly, as well.
Having never been to Pittsburgh, I can only guess at this landscape. I can't quite place it, but somethings pulls on my own East Coast heartstrings.
In the same way that when a Stephanie Blake arrives, I can't quite bring myself to open the packet, in this case, stickers! The opaque not knowing is perhaps better than the finding out.
As ever with Claire's packaging, I can't help but covet. I'm sure WE don't have stamps like those and I certainly can't make them (Like BF) and that washi tape...
Many, many thanks, Claire. I am working on an obsessive project for my mail art friends that is taking much more time than first anticipated… but yours is on deck.
