It all began with a visit to Miss Pixie's Furnishings & Whatnot, a great vintage store on 14th Street in Washington, D.C. I discovered some crumbling old envelopes, and as I turned them over in my hands I wondered how they might look as greeting cards. They turned out to be pretty neat! I now look for vintage envelopes wherever I travel, and have found some great ones in the Shenandoah Valley, New York, and online.
The postmark on this envelope comes from mail on the bus -- the Highway Post Office Bus (H.P.O.), that is! Digitally printed, originally created from a vintage envelope. Card size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 in., printed on heavy stock.
