    very lovely indeed! i have a habit of starting collections and then tiring after acquiring two or three pieces. i'm amazed at the fortitude people have to work on the same collection for years!

    I guess it won't surprise you to learn that most of the stamps in my long-ago collection were exotic creature and plants..happy memories of wild things…

    Wow, I love stamps, these are fantastic, I wish they still made them like this.

    that blog made me think of my brother's collection of stamps…so i dug them up and scanned a whole bunch of them. many are very ordinary, but i still love them for the connection to mail and the changing design aesthetic through the years.
