Jane's Post Office, and mail art update

 So far this week, I'm making Mail Art using old paper - receipts from France dated 1902 and an old Paris map book dated from early in the last century I'm sure. Very fragile paper which I'm hoping will make it through the postal systems.
 All of the quotes on the reverse of these are about travel.

SAVE A POST OFFICE- how about writing a note, or sending a postcard to help save a tiny post office. It's a simple thing to do and costs very little in time or money.  Read on -
Jane owns the post office in her small town in Vermont, USA. It's at risk of being closed. You can help by sending mail there as the volume of mail handled counts for keeping a post office open.

You can send mail to: Jane Davies, PO Box 45, Rupert, VT, USA o5768

She'll send mail back to you.
 I added the rubber stamp to each of these cards. They are facsimiles of old stamps, which I really like very much. I wish I had more of them.
 I've added this image because it's also a facsimile/replica of an old time-y apothecary set. Actually, it's kind of old time-y as we got some of it a long time ago, from a dear cousin, and some we purchased. So cool. We took it off the shelf to dust it, while our bathroom was being repainted. It's quite nice, and fits with the vintage of the Mail Art, don't you think?
