Friday I'm in love… with stamps

Ever since Tea For Joy did a post on her love of stamps, I’ve been intrigued. Up until then I’d never really given stamps much thought – to me they were just little brown things with a frilly edge and a pic of the Queen. Oh how wrong I was. Ok so normal stamps are still pretty much still the same, but the potential of vintage stamps is just brilliant… You can frame them, varnish them to furniture, decorate folders (you get the idea). Check out these brilliant stamps I’ve been coveting recently…

1. Japanese stamps from Three Potato Four
These are so ridiculously adorable… I love the pensive panda, the miserable bunny and the happy elephant the most but they’re all brilliant.

2. Vintage stamps from Present & Correct

I’ve only just discovered Present & Correct’s website (I knew they had an Etsy shop but boy their website shop beats the pants off that!) and already it’s become another minor obsession of mine. They sell lots of beautiful vintage prints and other goodies – including these lovely lovely 1960s stamps from Holland featuring hobbies, animals, beetroot (!) and fairy tales…

P.S. This Friday I’m also loving (make that utterly obsessed with) Florence + The Machine. Wish I could see them at T in the Park this weekend!
