One thing people might not know about me is that I enjoy postal stamps—but perhaps not in the same way as collectors do.  I just am particular about which ones I buy, and I very much enjoy choosing which ones to put on which envelope I am mailing.

Modern days have made this both difficult and enjoyable.  Because of email, I don’t send near as many letters as I used to, and that’s sad.  BUT if I go to the local postal office and they don’t have any interesting stamps to purchase, I can go online and buy them with only $1 shipping fee.  Not that their website is the easiest thing to figure out….still, it’s worth it.

There is only one stamp I have ever kept, because I couldn’t bear to part with it:  the Star Trek ship Enterprise.  It’s laying around in the drawer somewhere, and it’s nice to see it when I come across it.


Here are the ones I’ve been buying lately:


So, if you ever get a letter from me, be sure to look at the stamp.  Because I’ve chosen it especially for you!


  1. I think stamps are fun!  I used these superhero comic stamps for my son's graduation invitations, and I think it looked cool.  He thought it was a little silly.  Oh well!

  2. I agree....stamps are great. I miss the days of snail mail.

  3. Hmmm...I think we *do* occasionally get mail from your DH... is he choosy about stamps, too?And I think you'd better find a safe place for the Enterprise.

  4. Those stamps are pure art works and some of them make us dream . I agree with you .
    Thanks for your kind commentLove

  5. Aw, now I wish for a letter! I like stamps, too. They are so pretty. I saved the Disney Cinderella one and have it in a frame on my desk.
