Jane Austen Stamp

I’ve probably mentioned that I’m not the biggest Jane Austen fan in the world but this stamp really brightened my day when it arrived on a letter in work:

Jane Austen Anniversary Stamp

Sense and Sensibility Stamp

Isn’t it sweet? This is why I should post more letters. Then I might receive more of the same!

I’m not a Philatelist, but…

I’m not a philatelist (stamp collector, but how cool is that word?) though I did once buy the royal mail Dracula and Frankenstein stamps to decorate my diary. I was about 9 at the time, and stamp prices weren’t quite as ridiculous as they are now. It was a short lived obsession, and while I do appreciate a nice stamp, stamps are not a major obsession for me.

However, I think I might be forced to rethink this after a colleague in work showed me these amazing book related stamps on The Royal Mail website.

Fantasy Stamps- Magical Realms

Nostalgic Stamps- Winnie-the-Pooh

I don’t know if I mentioned that I’ve decided it might be time for me to go back to old fashioned correspondace, but I have started sending a lot of letters to my friends living elsewhere, because who doesn’t love a proper letter? I think I might have to buy these.
