La Vita – Gelato



La Vita

Gelato served with those small translucent spoons in Italy is a great answer to hot weather.  I collected 15 of those spoons once which probably means I was hitting the Gelato a little too hard. : ) This stamp was perforated with the ponce wheel before I figured out better ways.  I like the simplicity of the image matching the simplicity of consuming Gelato. Expresso stickers available at the Vatican Ufficio Postale were super cool…..there is no rush to consume Gelato ordinarily but I like the dual reference to that wonderful Italian expresso that is also part of La Vita……….ahhhh….the pleasures…..
