Sincerely Yours

Hope you had a delicious fun Thanksgiving.
The holidays remind me of the old days when friends were far away and we used letters to keep in touch.  Now a quick line in email or text takes their place.  But there was something about getting those well thought out words in script that was quite wonderful.  Here is my tribute to the personal letter.  As you may know I have a romance with the postage stamp and over the years I have amassed quite a collection from strangers and friends.  We take for granted this very small art form representing our heros, villains, occasions and simply the joy of nature often done in fine lithography.   Here is my tribute to the personal letter created in postage stamps and cancellation marks.
