i love stamps! i always have. probably because i've always been fond of
miniatures & art, also like travel and geography. stamps are just that - miniature
art works, little thumbnails of this and that - people, history, countries...
they travel far, bringing cheer, maybe sorrow too.
i like snailmail - i always have.
i like the tangible.
i like handwriting,
a few years ago, someone gave me this amazing box!
i knew exactly what i was going to do with it.
the little drawers and compartments hold my collection.
Here's how it expands -
my little stamp museum or library.
recently my blogging friend, claudia, sent me some
austrian stamps from her collection. they're so cool!
she understands the fascination -
she is also a collector.
i dedicate this post to her.
it's also her birthday! and michelangelo's birthday.
happy birthday dearest claudia!
