I took my girls with me to the Arizona stamp show.
Ancient stamps lined the conference room along with ornate writing on tea-stained envelopes.
Some of them dating back to the 18th century and from all different countries.
I was in heaven.
The colors and designs of these old stamps intrigued the best of me.
I gathered hundreds of used, beautiful, antique stamps and brought them home.

I have so many ideas for for these treasures... I will keep you all posted, in the mean time, I vow never just to buy stamps again, I am going to ask for the commemorative kind that will make my letters pretty and hopefully someday be art to someone else.
