Comment: A little investigating reveals that you are the sender of the 'mystery envelope' I received yesterday (postmarked 5 weeks earlier!). Unfortunately, the envelope had been completely torn open, and was re-packaged by the USPS. Only some lovely vintage nature images, and some strips of TV stamps (& half a cocktail stick!) remained inside :-(. But the bits that were left were so thoughtful that you definitely deserve the heart! **Update:** Thanks so much for re-sending - I love your illustrations, and it was a fascinating subject, too :-)

Comment: Marvelous sketches which captured the spirit of the text! My daughter and I were also charmed by the little extra inclusions - the vintage insects and the 'stamps' were particularly my style. Thank you so much for a lovely little package - regards from the bard

Hint: do you know about 'poladroid'? It's a free download little program that you sit on your desktop, then drag and drop any photo into and it 'converts it' into a 'polaroid' using very cool filters and a white frame. Awesome! Go look it up at www.poladroid.net (and Flickr has pools of the pics)....
