A few weeks back we pushed the envelope a bit. Not an envelope but a Sea Grape leave. It’s not far fetched to think that in the past they might have been used for short missives via the Barefoot Mailman who delivered up and down the East Coast of Florida and Lake Worth was one of the stops. This Sea Grape leave was created during Real Mail Fridays, where you access all great supplies, with complimentary stamps, cookies and coffee plus a few hours with like minded friends at the Jaffe Book Arts Center. It was just the right place for me to take care of the much needed thank you notes that I owed. Still don’t have all the addresses for the random act of kindness that was bestowed on me. Now I can’t wait for the Real Mail Friday which takes place the 1st Friday of each month. It arrived in good shape but the stamp had not been cancelled. That just wouldn’t do. So I returned it to our local post office and had our charming postman hand cancel the Sea Grape leave and send it once more. As we have introduced this art form through some workshops we make sure that they get stamps but also encourage senders to have them hand cancelled. This just adds a nice touch to the overall look.
