First came this BLUE beauty!

'liking it very much...

Then another , with BLUE upside-down plane postage:

Always specially addressed...with a cat for MomKat,

and inside this envelope were stamps...

and a camel :-)

Now, about those old Presidential stamps...

once upon a time, my aunt in Chicago sent my son bags and bags of old US postage stamps,

just to "start" a stamp collection. The stamp albums in Europe have these nice paper "pockets",

so no need to glue or stick stamps, just collect them in rows and rows...

So, here is Eisenhower, 6 and 8 cents...long ago :-0

How about Jefferson? One, two, three cents only:

You have me searching through some ol' stamp albums :-)

Thank you so much, Mike!

Arrange a few of the stamps into a design .. flower petals or whatever. Cut them into pieces and use the pieces to makedesigns. Mix two colors for more interest

Some of the stamp pieces came out of the envelope like confetti ,Mike,

I thought that was the way it should be! :-)

I'll have to send you a few FDR stamps...there are sooooo many,

but i really can't make myself cut 'em up or make a mosaic with them.

a few more Presidential stamps...George:

There was an ink printing slip up on several of these,

the BLUE is thick on some, blotchy on others...

just 5 cents...I remember the days when we put 5 cents on a postcard!
