Much has happened in my life since the passing of my mother approximately one year ago. My how recent her passing seems! After she passed at the age of 101 and 7 months, I remained in Coos Bay, Oregon for six months and, with the help of a handyman, I upgraded my Oregon home to the level that I thought would sell it when I put it on the real estate market. I either figured that “one” correctly, or I was extremely lucky. For whatever reasons, my house was in escrow three days after listing it. I had been planning a visit to my daughter’s as soon as I felt it would be practical to make the trip so off I went to Idaho just days after listing my property. One of my daughter’s friends, a realtor in North Idaho, had been telling my daughter and son-in-law that she had the perfect house for me. To make a long story short, I have been the owner of that house since October 3, 2011, and I absolutely love living in North Idaho! I’ve been seeing my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter, and grandson and his wife most every week. My “new” home is less than two miles from my daughter’s home which makes me feel very comfortable about moving here as I know I have strong family support “just a holler away.” As those of you who know me are aware, family is the most important thing in my life so…
I have some logistics to figure out regarding my business as the majority of my inventory is at my California home. That is why I am only able to offer unmounted Brownies at the present time. I do plan to eventually move my inventory to Idaho, soon I hope, but I don’t know just when or how. I will notify those on my mailing list when I have the rest of my inventory here in Idaho. To be placed on my mailing list, go to the newsletter link on my site.

  1. Hi! I just looked over the stamps and found four of them that I would like to have. However, they are in the Frames and Scenic Elements categories. When these are available, let me know.
    Glad to see that you are happily situated in a new house near your daughter. Best to you in getting your possessions from California to Idaho!

    1. Hi Jan,

      Please let me know via email at which stamps you will want me to send. I’m not sure of the exact date I’ll be going to California, but it might be as soon as early in February. If I don’t go then, I am expecting to make a trip in March as I’ve had the same man do my taxes for more than 50 years, and I don’t want to change now.

      Since I’ll physically be at my California home/business soon, I’m able to offer my entire line for the window of time that I am there. I just can’t accept payment through my website shopping cart as that would require quite a bit of site revision. We can still use PayPal for payment. Of course, a check or money order would be fine, also.
      Best wishes,
