ABC...easy as...123



I love the alphabet, letters, text....stamps, stencils....calligraphy........



This complete box of lettered stamps once belonged to Miss Frances M. McGee....
(no relation to Me and Bobby McGee)



This small assemblage was made by Beth of ARTIFACTS......it totally speaks to my love of numbers......(52 being my personal favorite!)



Several years ago I found her and her wonderful creations at The Elephant's Trunk Flea Market



She Got My Number.........

I just found a set like that on a recent shopping trip. I can't wait to use it. I love the box as well. I love that Miss Mc Gee stamped her name!

OOH I love it ALL. 6 is certainly one of my favourite numbers and those alphabet stamps! I'd love something like this myself. Thanks for sharing these wonderful treasures.
