Funny Postal Projects

Wish I Were Here

If you could take a little mental holiday and go to any imaginary place, where would you go? And what would you do while you were there?
Send me a postcard, handmade or otherwise, from an imaginary location. It can be a place from a book or a movie or a piece of music, or some other world you made up. On the other side, write and tell me what you've been doing on your vacation from reality.


Tara Johnson's Return to sender

I think this project has been discontinued. But you still can have a look at Tara Johnson's Istagram account and laugh with the drawings she makes on letters with wrong addresses...


Collecting Snails on Stamps

That is not exactly a postal project. It is just that this Denise McCarty's article surprised me.  I love snails (you knew that), and I have received a few postcards and stamps featuring them. Bu I did not know they were a theme for philatelists!

    1. They are. I do not get wrong mail here (and, if I do, I drop it on the counter of the post office), but I do in Spain. I am considering to do that when I live there (so I can convince the post office not to deliver those letters at home again and again...).

  2. Thanks for the Wish I Were Here shoutout. And agreed, the Return to Sender envelopes make me feel like we've all been missing out on a chance to make the postal world a little more spectacular.

  4. Great projects, the three of them! I love (and am following) the 'return to sender' account :-)

    By the way, I found an other snail stamp in my stock today, and should send it to you soon!
