Sunday Stamps #1


1 July 1987 Wildlife Series II - Definitives
37c Possum, 37c Cockatoo, 37c Wombat, 37c Rosella, 37c Echidna.

Thanks to Viridian for this new meme. It's called Sunday Stamps. It's given me an excuse to start scanning my Australian stamp and first day cover collection.

I have been collecting stamps as long as I can remember, at first they were the ones off envelopes but eventually I started buying them, I also have my dads collection so it will take me a while to scan them all.

This is a lovely set of stamps. I gave up collecting when I was quite young because the scope was just too much. I should have restricted myself to a theme I think, such as animals.

I know what you mean, I couldn't keep up with the amount that are released so decided to stop buying them, but still love seeing all the different stamps on my postcrossing cards.

so that is what a wombat looks like! Thank you for participating! I'm looking forward to seeing more. I agree, if collecting there are so many released.

A pretty set. Those are so different from the wildlife here.

What great colourful stamps and to see indigenous Australian animals, perfect.

Tiny stamps can only show a little. I'd like to create maximum cards with these stamps. :) See my blog for examples.
