Mail art display

I haven't checked either of my mail boxes today. I decided to take this day off to do nothing and that's about all I've done today. I had the good intentions of cleaning the apartment and going to see a friend but decided to rest and it's been a lovely day of napping, reading, letter writing, and blog hopping. Oh, I did get productive for a few minutes by cleaning off my pub table. In the process, I found a lovely stack of mail art that I'd forgotten about!

Several months ago I put a few pieces in a tiled mirror frame and hung it on the wall over my television.

I love the frame so it seemed like a beautiful way to display the pieces. I eventually moved the frame to my "crazy wall".

Now I have more mail art to find a home for and am wondering if putting it in an album of some sort might be a good option. I like that idea but I really prefer having the art where I can see it at a glance rather than flip through book pages.

Perhaps a collage would work. Or maybe I should just go really primitive and stick it on a cork board. I don't want to poke holes in the pieces, though.

If you have ideas on ways to display the mail art without damaging it, please let me know.


  1. Hi,

    Your day of napping, reading, letter writing & blog hopping sounds perfect. Sometimes we need those kinds of days.

    I'm enjoying your blog and look forward to more posts. And thank you for by stopping by mine as well.

  2. Jan, thanks for stopping by and commenting. The day was wonderful and today I'm headed to my mother's house for a full day of whatever she wants to do. :)
