Good Finds: the stamp book

Little Treasures
Who would have guessed that this little brown book contained such a trove of treasure.


It's just a few pages, but its a gorgeous little book. And because the stamps have been tucked away inside, they've been protected from the light and have retained the original richness and vibrancy of their pigments. Yum!

We also have little pochets of stamps chock full of little beauties. A few of my favorites:
This one reminds me of The Little Prince

What is it about having something old and beautiful that makes it so precious?
An extended memory or view into the past? a quest for immortality, albeit backwards?
Or maybe it just nice to hold a little piece of time in your hand. A little treasure just for you.
