traveler by proxy


what is it about changing seasons or changes in life that make me want to hop a plane somewhere? not to escape really, but just to go have an experience! it's almost as if all the goodness and excitement of change demand it in the scenery as well. it's much too much to keep bottled. anyway, it happens to me almost every end of summer...and now that baby bee is here it's a stronger urge than ever.

and while hitting the road/skies/seas somewhere far off has never really been a realistic option, it's a nice thought. 
and so i get lost and taken away in the little things...spinning the old school globe or digging through stamps. i ordered new ones, and a few other goods, from one of my favorite european companies, present and correct. just seeing the box in the mail from the UK was enough to make me feel accomplished. world traveler by proxy!


it's enough to tide me over at least through september...

  4. these are so dang pretty. and yes to traveling when the seasons change! I've been itching to see New York City in the fall and thankfully this year, we're doing it. I know it's not an international adventure, but it's enough for me!

  5. those are such fun stamps. i've always wanted to visit a city in the fall that has an actual season. since fall is my favorite, i've always wanted to experience it as it's truly meant to be (i live in socal, so we don't really have seasons).

  6. for me, it's fall when i start craving change. and oddly enough i have had a big adventure each fall for the past few years: travel, job change, house purchase, you name it and it counts as an adventure.

  7. i could definitely use a change and a trip to an unexplored place would be very welcome. i just love how every corner of your home is so bright and cozy.

  14. When life gets stressful or boring I dream of selling everything and traveling....I enjoy reading this blog about a family who basically just cycle all over. They have traveled extensively in South America, South East Asia, and Europe. They are just leaving Croatia and are cycling around Italy:

  15. I'd love to get away this Autumn.. but I know it's not happening, and I must hunker down for the winter here in this town. Might as well get used to it. I love the colorful stamps (and your jeans! swoon).

  16. Do you know, I've always noticed your beautiful stamps and wondered where you got them from. Stamps are like mini adventures for your imagination and I always like seeing them in your photos.

    As for adventures... well life has a funny way of giving you exactly what you wish for sometimes, so who knows :)

  17. Those are fabulous stamps. I sometimes craft with stamps, tile some bird stamps over a little birdhouse roof, frame a sheet of pinecones. The graphics on the particular ones you have here are great!
