A Trip Down Memory Lane….

Amazing what we find hidden deep in our closets…

A friend recently gave me a box of her old … and we’re talking practically prehistoric … stamping supplies. Check out these ancient ink pads:

Here’s the amazing part: some of these pads are still inky!

Anyone old enough to remember when we had to use office ink pads? And colors were pretty much limited to black and red. Ugh. Here’s a pad I once used to stamp cute images on envelopes and to stamp my return address:

We didn’t have the internet back in the day, so we relied on little booklets like these for inspiration:
