Announcement   I bring my love of color and design to my Etsy shops. I am drawn to objects, art / illustrations that are inspired by color, nature and the beauty around us. I look for items that have this beauty and appeal and try to incorporate into my work. You can say each is a colorful temptation. I also love stamps and am an avid collector since childhood. I love to share my stamps with you for crafting and collecting.

The vintage postage stamps for sale are from the 1920-1990s. They are all authentic postage stamps from around the world, some canceled, some mint. They can be used for cards, journals, scrapbooks, altered art, mixed media artwork, collages, really any other craft project. Or, if you are a stamp collector, these will surely fill in the holes in your stamp albums. Some of these themed sets contain hard to find stamps. Stamps are mini works of art that you will love to treasure. If you have a specific subject of a stamp you need, send me a note and I'll see what I have. This is also a good way to start your stamp collection!

We hope you enjoy our items. Thanks for visiting. Please check my other shop on Easy, ColorfulWatercolors where I sell my original watercolor paintings cards and bookmarks.

About

Always into Art

Since I was a young child, I excelled in art. It became such a passion during my school years, that I studied art over languages and enjoyed the varied art programs available to me. It was my first trip to a real ad agency in Manhattan at age 12, that I was hooked and knew what I wanted to do. Now I can say I have been successful at graphic design and feel lucky to have been living my dream in both my full time work life as well as my home life.

I have always loved collecting stamps since I was a child. They are like mini works of art, each unique in subject, design and technique. My favorite stamps are lithographs from the early 20th century. Manny are simple, 2 or 3 colors, but intricate etchings that are very detailed and quite beautiful.

Creating my designs are not work to me, but a love of graphics and color. I hope they are fun, whimsical and decorative and serve a function. I've loved photography since I was young and found it to be a creative outlet. Just need a camera and you can be entertained for as long as you wish. I'd like to think my creative background enables me to take striking and interesting photographs and works of art.

Thanks for checking out my shop and hope you enjoy my items.
