Letters, Lovely Letters, Part 2.

Yet another delightful epistle from overseas this morning. This card is from Norway and not only contains a tiny painted square by an ex-mariner but the stamps have flowering rosemary and chillis on them.

 Do other countries actually have nicer stamps than ours or do they just seem exotic because they're foreign?

  1. I would agree with you that other countries do seem to have far more interesting stamps than ours. The watercolour sketch is lovely - I wish more people still sent letters. I may be slightly old-fashioned but I do worry about the absence of snail mail from future archive collections - there's something so special about the personality that people imprint on their letters - in their handwriting, in drawings, and the stamps themselves.


Are you delighted by what you have just read? Are you revulsed and appalled? Do let us know, we'd love to hear from you.
