the postal aviary

29 Dec

When I have finished writing a letter or after I seal up an etsy sale, the pretty packages get set down in a special section of my bookshelf until I head off to the downtown post office. It makes me think of Harry Potter and how all of the post in the wizarding world is sent via owls. Ironically, the area where I set my letters is somewhat of an aviary, with plenty of little collected bird sculptures sitting amongst a porcelain penholder detailing an empty birdcage. The postal aviary was especially full yesterday, as I’ve finally spent a good chunk of my time lately dedicated to mail art making. Postal boxes worldwide ought to start getting excited…

    Love your choice of words ‘The Postal Aviary’. Very fitting and very Harry Potter. Love all the bird sculptures :)
