stamps. Postal ones. From America.

Mini works of art.

I don't think buying a packet of them makes me a philatelist.

wonderful!

it is a crying shame that we don't have anything near as lovely to go on our letters here. although i did buy some very sweet winnie the pooh stamps last week.

what will you do with them? x

i totally agree with your mini work of art comment...my boyfriend was thrilled with one of his 30th birthday gifts last year...he'd worked for the british antarctic survey for 18 months, quite liked penguins (he's a marine scientist) and was born in 1979 so i was absolutely thrilled when i spotted some british antarctic survey stamps from 1979 featuring penguins on ebay. i snapped them up, framed them and gave him a gift that he was totally amazed by! mind you don't get too carried away with the stamps...!

I just bought a stamp in the UK with a giant eyeball on it! It was scary stuff. Would have preferred a basic one the Queen :)

Lovely post - I, too, appreciate all the talent and artwork behind each postage stamp. For the same reason I love libraries - the book jackets :)

Now if you would let me give you the lovely Canadian stamps (a huge one! With a moose on!) that arrived on a parcel the other day, you would spare me the pain of throwing them out, for I too am not a philatelist......
