Stamp Room

When I was in Europe last year, I bought quite a bit of paper. I carted the tube on and off the bus each day, swearing it got heavier as the trip went on (could be because I kept buying paper!). Once I got home, the sheets were laid out on top of a table in the basement and promptly forgotten about. I've found that I need to "see" things to remember to use them. The sheets of paper have all been rolled up and placed into a basket I bought last weekend.
I have the same issue with my stamps. Years ago when I first started stamping, I bought an adjustable shelf to house them. My husband then made me two more. Here's what they look like today.Of course, this is a SMALL part of my stamp collection, but I do use them more if I'm seeing them. Here's a pix of another wall in my stamp room - full of iris carts.
This is an addition to my growing collection of "doodle" flowers, going in this months calendar journal.

Your stamp room looks wonderful. The papers look beautiful - sort of like a bouquet in the basket. I'm impressed with your organization and tidiness.
