PROY#59 received from Annick SB – Chenove, France – 14 May 2013

Annick sent me this card, with several delicate pink, red, orange and yellow references!

Above the address, Annicke proposes "En mai poste ce qu'il te plaît !", that is, "In may, mail what pleases you!", probably by reference to the saying "En mai, fais ce qu'il te plaît", that is, "never cast a clout till May is out". This is the theme of a call from Françoise Bourgon (see

PROY#58 received from Darie - Красноярск, Russland – 15 April 2013

Even if this Postcrossing card was probabably not sent to me as mail art, 
I consider it as a contribution to my PROYproject!

Darie sent me a PostCrossing card made out of  Krasnoyarsky bus tickets. She writes that people in Krasnoyarsk believe that "lucky" tickets bring happiness to whom gets them! A ticket is "lucky" if the sum of the first three numbers is equal to that of the last three. For ex. a 622370-ticket is a "lucky" one: 6+2+2 = 3+7+0! So, Darie proposes me to search if I have a "lucky" ticket—and yes! I have one: the 220400! Thanks to Darie who sent me (some of) her bus tickets—and, in addition, sent me a "lucky" ticket—and in addition, made a wonderful red PostCrossing card out of them! I'm HAPPY!
