Just a quick note when we receive several envelopes at once I tend to spread out the wealth to avoid the dry spells. We are getting more international mail, the word is getting around. Today one of my FB friends requested her friends from as far away as Spain to mail me some Mail-Art. Some of you are responding to personal requests. Please address the envelopes not to me but to Lake Worth 100, City Hall , 7 n Dixie Hwy. Lake Worth Fl. 33460 This piece of mail is inriguing. All the way from england and definitely oversized. I’m seeing a rabbit or is it just me. The letter below has gotten wet and am not sure if it is by accident or by design. The smudged ink came out purplish.
the back is the same sans address
And a most pleasant surprise is the charming envelope from Sam all the way from California. Thanks for sending us this envelope, now if you have time and would like to send another, well we would just enjoy that a lot.
When this project first started we were not certain which address would accept the mail-art arriving for our Centennial Celebration. All Mail-Art should be addressed to Lake Worth’s City Hall as follows.
Lake Worth 100 – 7 n. Dixie Hwy – Lake Worth Fl. 33460
The deadline has also been extended to Nov. 2013. Here is one that didn’t get recorded as it was sent to incorrect address. We have now streamlined the process. All daily arrivals to Lake Worth’s City Hall gets documented and posted on this site. Here is a charming envelope that addresses the history of Lake Worths first pioneers who manned the post office with the Barefoot mailman. More about him next week.
this did arrive through the post but was not cancelled so back it goes for hand canceling.
Continues as the celebrations for Lake Worth’s Centennial continues. A new deadline extends the submissions for the call to artists, calligraphers and art postal enthusiasts. Todays mail brought us some creative new envelopes that you might think would never ever get through our postal system. They just need to be handled with tender loving care.
not quite sure where Fleming Island Fl. is but we thank you Bethany

Thanks so much, can’t quite make out the name but this is exactly what mail art is all about. Pushing the envelope. This came to us even though the address was not City Hall.
