Congratulations Jill. It was fun to read all the wonderful names everyone came up with. Clarice


I am thrilled beyond measure to have won a sweet mouse made by you, Charlotte! Thank you so much!!! Fiona will always have a home with me, most likely in my studio where she can keep an eye on all the creative goings-on. I'm sure she'll be happy there!


I still have my great-grandfather's stamp collection....somewhere...? It's consists merely of a bunch of old stamps lumped together in an undignified manner in a plastic bag. Probably not the presentation that Grampa had in mind. Oh, and there are some 'first day covers', whatever those are. They look like blank envelopes with stamps on them.

Maybe someday soon I'll mount a bunch of them into a nice frame so we can enjoy them :)


I was drawn to your blog because we share the same first name. I'm glad I found it. I love the heart made of stamps. It's so unique.
Have a great day!


Ok, that banner is absolutely Charming!

Congratulations Jill! I wish you and Fiona many happy, creative moments together.....


What wonderful stamps!

The image brought back such wonderful memories of sitting with my Grandmother, turning the pages of her stamp collections and listening to her stories of where they came from and who had sent them to her.
Thanks Charlotte!


Yay, Jill! Fiona will have a nice new home. I love the stamps and find myself ripping off the canceled stamps to save. A handwritten note is becoming rare and thus so precious, even the stamps are sweet reminders of gentler days.


How poignant. I love this!
