Stamps, Paper, and Other Compulsions

I finally got around to ordering the Chrysanthemum international stamps. Why it took so long I can't say. Perhaps it was that I wanted to use several smaller denomination stamps instead. Yes, I think that was it. But now when I consider that I have matching ink and wax, to NOT buy them seems  inexcusable, yet for so long...no matter, I have them now. Next will be the African Daisies. The Shel Silverstein stamps did not disappoint but I confess I wish the tulips were a bit larger. Still, they are truly beautiful.
