An Envelope

I sometimes receive unusual mail. No one, though, can surely ever have received a letter in an envelope like tihs work of art which I received from my brother a little while ago:

  3. Adrian says it - brilliant is the word!
    Cro's suggestion to frame it presents one problem, though - framed, you'd always only see one side of it.
    John really is an artist.

    1. Fortunately, Meike, the envelope is splittable into a front and a back so I can frame it.

  4. When I send a birthday card or whatnot I put little stars on the envelope. Stars don't quite match up to cotton bobbins and long tailed twits!
    Fabulous! you are loved

    1. Kylie I have a selection of stickers I use on envelopes - mostly also showing my name and address in case of non-delivery.

  6. I'm sure some of the mail sorters and delivery people would have stopped and had a good look at this just like you. Thanks for sharing.

  7. How wonderful! I even like the edges of the envelope telling you how to open it! Thanks for sharing, I love anything by you Liverpool lads! :-)

  8. It is most surprising that this unique envelope reached your house as there is a big white sticker over your address. Is the pink border significant?

    1. YP, the pink border is there so that someone will ask "Why is there a pink border?"

    2. Hey, it's 2017. I have no problem if your stickers have pink borders but mine will be boy blue!

    3. Oh yeah, I forgot!...Could this be the first sign of dementia?

  9. I love them! Someone is very clever. However, I think the stupidest bird of all is the one whose name I can't remember, but who flies in straight lines until it bumps into something. And it's real!

    1. I think that's called the Boris Johnson tit.

    2. Oddly enough, Frances, that does strike a chord in what passes for my brain. However I can't get any further than that.

    3. Graham, I think I blogged about it a while back, but can't quite remember....

  10. Hahahahahaha! Unique and definitely worth keeping. It's a wonder the postie didn't keep them! :)

    There are a lot of big-bottomed twits down this way! :)

  12. Glad to see he has a good sense of humour. It is great that he hasn't succumbed to the electronic age yet.

    1. Diane whilst my brother and I have embraced the electronic age since computers were made available for home use we both are also fairly (me) and very (CJ) prolific letter and note and post card writers.

  13. I just knew that was CJ... HA!! You are both rare birds.
