Interesting Postage Stamps


I've been looking through my picture files and came across some postage stamps that I forgot about. I thought I'd share a few today. I'm not sure all of these are technically vintage, but they'd make cute additions to a card or page. In any case, we'll see if you any of you like them or not. Let's call it a trial! :)

Alice's Adventure in Wonderland.

I know some show the cancelled stamp, but I still think they're interesting as an embellishment!

Some old wooden toys...

Some more masculine ones...
I have a couple from the 2nd World War too. Email me if you want them.
Let me know if you think you could use these!

Have a good week!
