Flip Flop Mail Art

A reader tipped me onto Flip Flop Mail Art, a blog documenting sent and received mail art from around the world. Free free to participate and mail your art to Peter Dowker at 141 Chemin Foster, Lac Brome, Quebec, Canada. A similar blog with my mail art is Arriving and Outgoing Mail Art. Thanks Chris!

ABC Carpet and Home is probably my favorite store ever. They are currently selling these handmade, one-of-a-kind rugs of the American flag. Each rug is made by a Turkish artisan from recycled textile remnants. The rugs are a jumble of color, pattern, form and texture. However, the rugs range in price from $1,250 to $2,750. I’m all in favor of recycled goods, but I think that is a bit much. Although the rugs are orginially sold by ABC Home store, the close out is being sold via Gilt Group.
