stamps and cappuccinos

Don't I talked my friend Nora into visiting the Stamp Museum (in Hungarian it is called Bélyegmúzeum). My husband laughed when I told him this is where I suggested we go. Then he went to the website and said maybe it would be interesting.
Well, it was interesting and inspiring. I was really hoping to have photos to post...but no photos were allowed. So I have to share what I found online and two stamps that my husband gave me months ago (he thought I would find the designs inspiring-and they are!) Enjoy!

My favorite (and one from Steve)! I love the line work and the design in her dress.
For Christmas

After the museum we headed over the the new Alexandra Bookshop and cafe. Alexandra recently opened a new shop in the newly renovated Paris Department Store, an Art Nouveau monument on Budapest's exclusive Andrássy Avenue. We enjoyed cappuccino's and good conversation in a beautiful atmosphere! What a great way to start the day!
How do you get inspiration for designs? Any weird places like stamp museums?
