Monday Blogger is back for a month
Was about to share the wonderful #mailart that came to Lake Worth Beach’s City Hall. however H. Dorian intermissum (Latin). City Hall had just received from Germany + France #envelopeart for our #mailartcall. We are not alone. Lake Worth Beach’s name change apparently does little marketing if any. We are the best secret on the Palm BEAch coast. 7 minutes from the Palm BEAch International Airport LOL plus TriRail service walking distance into town. I do my part. I sent a #decoratedenvelope to France and got back this most charming pc of #mailart in return. Charming as they thanked the #uspostalservice. On same day also received 2 from Germany. One from an artist who’s mailed me a #decoratedenvelope to the Windisch-Hunt Fine Art Gallery many years ago and I never forgot it. I took a chance, 15 yrs later, has he moved, how old was he, did he still do #correspondenceart. I was thrilled he responded in kind.
H. Dorian put a go slow into the #mailartproject. Today collecting the mail we received 3 pc of #mail, one from Spain.
Lake Worth Beach is getting subliminal notice, from #mailartists around the world. If you read this blog, thank you. I encourage you to participate in this creative activity. Just takes a envelope ( they are not opened) and a stamp! Mail it to:
Mail Art/City Hall. 7 n Dixie Hwy. Lake Worth Beach Fl. 33460.
To see the other #envelope art I posted on Instagram. Annamaria33460.
This charming quirky little seaside town who’s beach is nestled on Palm BEAch Island, just 2 miles south of Mar a Lago and two miles the other side Manalapan, home of the most wealthy. Lake worth Beach has location location location. 7 min up up I-95 is the Palm BEAch International Airport.
“I’ve always considered it a cross between Key West and the old Cocoanut Grove”. Life is go slow. Heard someone say, where can you live in a little cottage next to millionaires in a cottage. Over 1,000 cottages some in need of repair but most have gone through cosmetic rejuvenation. It had a historic waterfront with swimming pool that is now being rebuilt. Stay tune for that one as the sights are to make it the show stopper of Palm BEAch county.
Currently classes are given in neighboring pools this class in LWH pool. Private adult class given by Janet LaBanara
The pool once hosted many aquatic events now it will be redone for the community at large and its neighbors like West Palm, and Lantana. Architects have presented plans that look like a Bahamas vacation brochure. The citizenry are a bit more down to earth but insist on utilitarian use with wow factors. Even included the much sought after Beach side weddings in their plans lol.
Swimming skills are a must in Florida so daily there are swimming lessons being given in available pools until such time that it is reopened. At the commission workshop two local artists working together gave their concept David Whitlock via a Diorama and AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt the drawing which indicated specific Aquatic requirements plus the wow factors. The 4 wow factors were were an infinity pool at the end a meditation area. Water fall from infinity pool buffering the noise level. A wind Turbine seen top left near pump room to offset cost of operating pool. A grand entry gate from s. And on East side a wall w portholes at different levels so activities inside pool can be seen by any age, and halt sand intrusion. A bridal suite was included w staircase coming down to a garden area just n of pool. So a $400,ooo grand staircase was eliminated. Staff was relocated to where they would actually be needed and the 5,00o square ft area ready to rent out to private public enterprise. A concession stand left bottom, open on both sides w cafe tables on both sides so even beach going public could get a quick bite.
Please respond to this post w your input. Thanks for reading. This post has published over two thousand items and all positive as the bikini states LW every minute.
Feel good nightEight miles up Dixie highway from our quirky little village of Lake Worth Beach, found another village. Last night it was a Woodstock recap. Yes there were a few of us who were really there but many more who wished they had been. Immediately you knew this was special as everyone was carrying a flower by the end of the evening they morphed into these lovely bouquets. Each participating merchants were given 100 flowers to give away.
Music came from two stages never intrusive mellow idyllic atmosphere as couples, groups shopped and everyone had a smile , it was nirvana. we supported the artists and merchants and restaurants in our own way . Visited. With artist friends. Thank you Northwood for such a special evening sponsored by the WEst Palm each CRA. I include the sign please read we could actually have a second CRA one to sponsor teacher housing am I still dreaming.
Has no monetary value. Sent through the worlds postal system. A gift with no expectations, no money exchanged. Did you know the Lake Worth Historical Museum right here in our quirky little seaside town has a nice collection rivaled only by MOMA.
Many mail art calls have themes, and are viewed in Churches, Libraries, pop up galleries, some are published into chap books. One of the longest continuous call for #Mailart is supported by the U.S. postal service in Washington D.C. visit their website. Washington calligraphy guild.
There are many categories within this genre: just postcards, Cinderella stamps ( faux stamp ), naked mail which i have send via cocoanuts and received, red satin slippers, No packaging, just bare/NAKEd. We in #lakeWorthBeach currently have a #correspondence art call, recognizing our name change. Feel creative, send us an #envelope, they are not opened, put your email on reverse side so we can notify you of your #envelopes arrival.

This brings me to this Friday, Real Mail Friday is happening every first Friday at the Jaffe Book Arts Center. fAU. HOsted by John Cutrone on the 3rd floor of Wimberly Library. A Lake Worthian.This has been an on going event for a few years. There you will be surrounded by thousands of one of a kind artists hand made books, what a treasure.

A great way to reach out to a friend wouldn’t you rather get a handwritten envelope in your mail box instead of reaching in and look at a bill or flyers in your hand. You can decorate the a colored pencils or or or. Here are some samples from WW II. Edward Gory the author sent his envelopes with images and received some like it. So send and see if before the month is out you get one back.
Perfect weather, calm waters and our beach is perfection today. Ever so often I love to feature the visitors who come to our beach, and they come from far and wide. Today I met this very happy lady who hails from Montreal full of enthusiasm. She has been a Snowbird here for 27 years. She invites friends who are looking at our town very seriously. Her last guest was a golfer and could not have been more enthusiastic about our municipal course.
Then this lovely couple from Yonkers, allowed me to photograph them. They were wistfully looking out over the calm ocean.
From New Jersey desperately seeking a tan before she heads home.
Here is my friend who never ever goes for a walk on the beach with out carrying a bag to pick up trash. Why is she emptying the bag, because she also found a sea urchin shell, she is taking home. I only accompany her part way, she goes all the way to Lantana. I slow her down as I look for sea shells have a swim, so, go only part way.
Once again the much anticipated sport of Lake Worthians was on schedule and again a great success. This years line up started at the home of the flamingos Dave Savage and Sandy Weston.
Over heard ” I have these tickets, but if your not in, I want my money back”. So once again a favorite is back. It’s a lot of work and time put in by the fun loving Downtown Jewel Neighborhood. As I’ve been saying for several years this is the best Neighborhood FUNDraiser.
First to tee off was newly elected NAPC PRES and behind a out of towner, who flew in for this event. Representing Buckeyes, they will be bringing more with them as this was a blast. And so this event grows exponentially. I brought one newbie, he flew in his sister and she’ll be bringing more next year.
Go buckeyes. LoL
As always transportation provided between the far apart holes. By our famous and
Some infamous drivers. You might want to revisit my blogposts of years past that show
Different holes and the past participants.
check out ” Flofing? Only in Lake Worth “.
March 27, 2016 That was a good year
always give credit to our chauffeuranother great hole was beautifully layed out and the water feature was hidden from the tee box
Another surprise this year was how welcoming this particular hole was. The meatballs made with Guinness was tasty. All holes had drinks and munchies.
The themes were as varied as were the new participants to the game. New residents were drafted. Loved the joys of Christmas, where TJ showed his skill, driving the ball into the tree for a par 2. (Ok finally I know what a par is, took a few years) everything I know about golfing comes from FLOFING. Lolnow this one deserves a close-up. Who doesn’t like bling
Was a feel good to visit some of our usual participants. This year quite a few new ones. The surprise was propaganda. Love community participation.
it is always a fun event as we are amused at the clever creative ways everyone embraces this event. In keeping with the politics and tomorrow’s run off I came in red white and blue with my pole sitter. A subliminal message. I had to depart for a previous commitment so I missed half. Said good by But returned to see the dismantling and recognize the worker bees who were there from start to finish.
The unspoken hero
Thereis a brown/beige sign indicating golfing in Lake Worth Beach, so they might still be out there searching for the golf course. To see more photos, definitely go to T J hashers face book page he has 100+
till next year
your pole sitter. ( not one dirty minded person was encountered with this spoof.
