More garden guests

Yes, I am an Ebay addict

It started with one stamp. 314 seller’s reviews later (100%, I might add), I can officially say, “I’m an Ebay addict.” I suppose there’s a 12-step program for this somewhere, but I’m not going. Why?

Did I mention that I found amazing vintage Paris postcards on Ebay? I’ll save that for another post.

So, here’s what came today:
