My Stash

Ephemera Stash
Thank you to all my lovely & very thoughtful friends that have sent me birdie stamps in the mail over the years :-) My paper ephemera stash is growing and I'm looking forward to incorporating more of it my art. Isn't it just beautiful and inspiring to look at?

I love old handwriting. It's like markings from a different world, isn't it?

It's lovely to see that nice old Hungarian woodpecker, and all your other collections too. Such an inspiring array!

As I love all things postal, this really appeals to me! In fact, I'm in the process of making 2013 calendars for Christmas gifts using cancelled postage stamps (but not nearly as exotic as yours!)

My local rubber stamp store posted a photo of your new book on Facebook and said they had it in stock. I ran over right away and bought it!! Love it!!

Who are these people that send such beautiful calligraphy printed addresses? I have never received something like that. What lovely patience people take to send something so artistic with such a mundane process. Thanks for sharing.

What lovely stamps. I love the old fashioned handwriting too, it's so much more romantic than modern handwriting.

Where do all those fantastic stamps come from? Which countries I mean? I live in Canada. Beautiful country. Worlds most boring stamps. Do you have penpals that send them to you? I'm literally swooning over them!
