Czech and Hungarian stamp sets.

{ Now available }

I compiled three separate stamp sets over the weekend and posted the listings in my Etsy shop:

Each stamp set will come in a lovely little package, accompanied by a mini pack of surprise ephemera goodies. These sets would make a beautifully unique addition to any collection or collage or scrapbooking project!

~ 1 set of 15 Czech (Ceskoslovensko) pictorial stamps, canceled and dating from the late 1960s through the 1970s. Several valuable stamps with vivid designs depicting Communist images. { Etsy listing }

That illuminated initial “S” makes me very happy.

~ 1 set of 8 Czech (Ceskoslovensko) shield stamps, canceled and dating from 1968-1975. Bright blues, reds, and greens. { Etsy listing }

~ 1 set of 15 Hungarian (Magyar Posta) pictorial stamps, canceled and dating from the late 1960s through the 1970s. Great educational and historical images and a lovely variety of colors. { Etsy listing }

I love the one with the girl reading. Of course.

I am so happy that the Vintage section of my Etsy shop is growing and expanding in a variety of ways. I want to live, breathe, and love vintage. All day, every day.

Of course, I still have some non-vintage papery items available as well. Thanks so much for visiting!

Holiday Items!

For some reason, I have only just now discovered how to make photo collages (via Picasa). I feel extremely slow. This whole time, I’ve felt like I’ve been uninvited to some exclusive photography party. Anyway, I’m excited. So, I just made a few collages of pages from my newly listed Holiday Paper Clips Journal on Etsy. I had way too much fun making this, and I’d love to have a ton of fun making more, so please order!

Lots of pages to keep track of gifts you’re giving, gifts you want to receive, gifts that totally elude you…whatever! And I make sure to include lots of usable gift tags, decorative pages, stickers, envelopes, and some vintage items too (including an addressed/stamped Christmas postcard from the 1910s! I have a handful of them, and they’re so fun to look at!).

Each holiday journal will also include one of my hand-sewn, hand-stamped “fa la la” button gift tags.

Check out my entire collection of holiday items and their descriptions in my Etsy shop HERE. And stay tuned for more! I’m planning on creating a couple kid-centric holiday listings soon…
