Well, for this week's Sunday Stamps, the theme is my choice, so I thought I would go back through my blog's picture archive and dig out some of my favourite stamps.
This sheet for Gerry Anderson/Thunderbirds is lenticular. 4, 3, 2, 1! I'm not afraid to use stamps individually from a miniature sheet. I had the 41p stamp in my purse for ages and ages, before I decided to use it to send something to a fellow stamp blogger!
I haven't sent many Postcrossing postcards recently, but when I did send, of course I needed to affix some stamps. I tried to use first class if I had room to add the Machin stamps to make the postage up.
Most of my outgoing post is letters, and there's usually a bit more room for the stamps on an envelope. I also try to choose stamps I think the recipient would like (a theme they are interested in, outside of stamps).
The stamps themselves can be talked about in letters. I probably mentioned films, or Peter Cushing in at least one of the letters above.
Portmeirion is "The Village" in the 1960s cult, The Prisoner. We went for a walk around Portmeirion recently. The "Green Dome" is not so green these days. There's a postbox in The Village as well, so I fed that with a letter.
I love Terry Pratchett. I didn't picture Nanny Ogg in my mind the way she is in the stamp above. I love the Discworld books (but still haven't read them all). Going Postal must be one of my favourite books in the series... the start of a postal service!
This was probably a Christmas mailing from a little while ago. I haven't bought any of this year's Christmas stamps.
