Vintage stamps.... oh my!

Hello lovelies, hope you are well! It's such a dark, rainy day here in the UK where I live... a perfect time to create!  

I have such a love for really old, vintage and antique rubber stamps and have started to collect them! Here are some photos of my little collection. I am always on the lookout for more and it's quite exciting as I always come across other vintage items to salvage and give a good, loving home to! 

This particular one is a French antique and from the early 1900's.... heaven! 
I have also created some little vintage inspired Matchbooks, which I decorated with a paper collage of vintage book pages and postal stamps that I designed myself. 
I have also added wax seals and bakers twine as a  closure. 

For the inside of the matchbooks, I have added a small stack of printer paper with quotes. 

I have also decorated the back of the matchbooks' with vintage papers and ephemera. 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Den! I really appreciate your visit.
