In case you haven't heard, I moved to an apartment and am selling the house we have lived in for 30 years. Quite a change.
But part of the change is going through all the boxes and things we have stored, thinking we would need them some day. One of those boxes contained my husband's postal stamp collection.
Discovering he collected stamps was a surprise to me since that was a hobby I spent many hours doing with my Dad. I've always loved the stories and histories that stamps reflected and when my husband said he didn't want them any more, I took them to my studio.
They weren't worth more than the postage printed on them but I didn't want to use them for regular mail. Besides, it would take eleven 5 cent stamps to mail a letter today!
So I decided to make them into art tiles.
Here's the one I inserted into my Valentines Day card this year. He loved it!
