My oldest granddaughter asked me if I would save stamps for her since she is starting a collection. Of course, I was thrilled to help her out. I immediately rummaged through a waste basket of mail waiting to be shredded. In amongst a myriad of the usual junk mail, I pulled out a postcard from a business inviting me to visit their display of home and garden products at the "Back to the 50s Car Show" held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul this past weekend. In the postcard's top right corner was the prettiest postage stamp that, in my haste, I hadn't taken time to notice. As usual, it took a child to cause me to slow my pace long enough to really notice life's little things. It was the pretty pink and green guava pictured center-stage in this beautiful collection of fruit postage stamps. After researching usps.com, I discovered that they are only available in 27 cent postcard denominations. No matter. I will be scrawling my thoughts on postcards henceforth over the course of the summer. They are just too pretty not to share.
