I grew up in an era when stamp collecting was a very real hobby. I saved every exciting stamp that was mailed my way and treasured my mother’s and grandfather’s stamp collection. Naturally, I love buying stamps and admiring the original collections USPS showcases every year. Here is are some that I have loved and used over the years.
The next obvious question is: if my stamps are so fabulous, what fabulous things am I mailing to my dear ones? Of course, I love sending birthday, anniversary and holiday cards. I also love sending no-reason-just-because cards. One fine collection of cards that comes to mind is that of mother-daughter team, Verrier Boutique. Here are some of my favorites.
