This week my friend Sheila called and said she had an old stamp set that I might appreciate. It had been left behind in a house her mom bought, and has been (thankfully) saved and cherished. The house, in Wisconsin, belonged to a doctor, and his daughter was an elementary school teacher. It has no date, but is marked Chicago. It has letters, pictures and words, and a few Dutch names (Piet and Matak). Some Presidentials–Washington, Lincoln, Wilson, Roosevelt. Bananas, toothbrush, street-car, dog…the usual suspects. I asked Sheila if she could leave the set at the studio for a few days, so I could share it with one of my printer friends, and take some pictures. And…well, play with the words. Because it is really, really cool. Seriously, historically, delightfully cool. P.S. Happy Birthday Dad, you’re seriously, historically, delightfully cool, too.
It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com. I also tweet at https://twitter.com/TheKimTackett and instagram at http://instagram.com/kimtackett. But here, it's all personal. I show up once a week, sometimes less, never more. I don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.
