Last week S. brought me from his office a big paper envelope full of postage stamps he saved from the mail they receive every day.
He knows how I like postage stamps: they are a tiny work of art with a lovely "jagged" frame.
I felt in love with a lot of them, but today I want to show you my favourite.
The first one is perfect for this month. It has the words "Buon Natale" (= Merry Christmas") and a lovely drawing of a wintery landscape and reindeers' silhouettes contrasting with a dark snowy sky:
And I'm glad that someone decided to dedicate a stamp to protected species of italian donkeys:
There's also my favourite: the ragusano donkey!
I found two postage stamps about scout movement, too!
I used to be a very happy scout girl when I was younger and I am always enthusiast about all things scout related!
This envelope full of tiny art has been a great gift! Thank you, sweetie :)
Now I'm planning what to do with them.
S. said that his project is to frame the most beautiful together to compose a panel to decorate a wall in our home. Lovely idea, expecially because hiding this beauty in a drawer it's a pity! I want to see them every day :)
But my mind started to develope other ideas. Hope to have the time to realize some soon (too busy, too busy! Why free time isn't enough???).
