One of my favorite things........!

Well, while talking with my bestie the other day she had a question about a picture in my Etsy shop...I sell ribbons and she was wondering about this stamp set that was pictured. I stamped some ribbon then wrapped it around an old tag, then stamped the tag with the word that corresponded.
And I was able to do that because of this fantastic stamp set...it was a gift from a friend...and if you ever see one of these sets my advice is to grab it quickly.  If it's affordable that is, because I've seen these go for quite a bit.
It was produced in 1932...for classrooms. Let me tell you, you could have hours of fun with this set.....making up silly sentences etc.
The stamps above have actual pictures of all of those items on them, yes, even a picture of George Washington! I've seen many of these little stamps being sold separately which is kind of sad that somewhere along the way the set got broken up.....
But that's what happens with a lot of our beloved vintage items, right?

In other news I'm happy to report that all my Halloween has been taken down and that was quite a job....I'm thinking a pared down next couple of months are on my agenda. Not so much "stuff" everywhere. After all, I think the eye needs a place to rest somewhere. Plus it makes your items that you do put out stand out more, right?

I might also like to express that most individuals who find themselves without health insurance are usually students, self-employed and people who are laid-off. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of Thirty five. They do not think they are needing health insurance as they are young in addition to healthy. important link Their particular income is usually spent on property, important site food, as well as entertainment. important source Most people that do work either whole or not professional are not supplied insurance by their jobs so they head out without due to the rising expense of health insurance in the us. index Thanks for the concepts you write about through this web site.
