Dark Pink Rose - Symbol of Gratitude & Traditional Way to Say Thank You

Photo of pink rose taken by Laura Moody, Nashville, TN.

A kind stranger at the Park N' Fly Nashville bequeathed this flower to me prior to Valentine's Day. It was a sweet gesture, unexpected and totally appreciated. :) Jesus inspires people to bless others. Isn't that marvelous?!

Mail Art / Postal Art / I Propose To ...

Photo taken prior to purchase of my US sticker stamp that will complete the design. Next step - I mail my revamped McCoy Mill, WV postcard to Jason. 

Mr. Postman lent a hand to my creation :).

In 2016 I am participating in another Jason Brown Mail Art opportunity.

Here is an excerpt from his blog site with details on the call for entry -


The pod will be part of a Modular Art Pods show at 
OZ Arts in Nashville, TN in June 2016. 
How would you propose to fill a 4 ft x 4 ft pod? 
Let your imagination go wild.

Your proposals will be displayed in this pod.

Participation is Free - use painting, drawing, collage, 
mixed media, rubber stamps, etc. on your mail entry.

A postcard size response is encouraged. The Deadline is May 1st 2016. 

Why not join in the fun?! :)

p.s. McCoy Mill, WV is featured on the front of my postcard entry. When I visited in 1997 it served as a bed and breakfast. The elderly hostess resembled Chris Kringle's wife and made some of the best cinnamon rolls I have ever tasted. The host looked like Santa and fashioned hand-made wooden furniture on site. The roar of the river kept me awake all night but it was surely a pleasant scenic getaway in close proximity to the Washington DC area.
