I think I must stop now, for the nonce if not for the day. I tire easily, even when doing something as sedentary as scanning -- although I'll admit that the scanner is in one room and I'm in another, so there's a lot of up-and-down involved.
Keep in touch; I've got quite a few more pieces to post, as well as the amazing prize I won from the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, which we all ought to join because the staff is lovely and the work they do historically important. I also have a whole BOOK from my friend Kyra to post, and a card from Iceland (a country I've loved since I first heard of it in third grade), and other really cool stuff.
Y'all keep in touch.
****** Added May 19, 2010. I just noticed that this post is number 500 on this blog. 500 is a lot. It's 499 more than 1. It's the most posts on any of my blogs. And I'm still having fun. So -- onward and onward, with chin up and a stiff upper lip and art still to be invented.
