yes, the one I started then rarely posted on... that was me (how many Violet's do you know?? and you do know that's not my real name, right?)
I would like to thank Viridian for keeping this stamp party going for so long - next week 200 posts! It has introduced me to many of you lovely people and to many, many interesting stamps.
a round of applause and cheers, cheers!!
Starting on December 21, a link will be up at 12:30am Eastern - so before breakfast for you all in the UK and Europe, and before dinner for you in Australia and Southeast Asia.
