Sunday Stamps – Set of Six dogs!

Welcome, to the latest Sunday Stamps posting.

Following on my last week’s post I dropped my cousin in Australia a quick email. Would her children like my stamp collection? I had the email back yes they would love it, as it would compliment the childhood collection that their Mum has given to them. I am delighted. We are not off to Australia until the Autumn of 2012, which gives me many months to share my stamps here, and have a pictorial view of them before I pass them on to be enjoyed by another generation of my family and to share the memory of how the collection started.

So, as I was preparing to write this post I wondered what stamp I should kick off with. I initially collected stamps world wide. Then I recall parting with some of the non UK stamps and kept some special ones. So mainly my collection comprises of UK stamps, with a smattering of overseas ones and a few “different” or “special” sets.

I am really going to enjoy writing for this meme and sharing my collection……

    Shelia, if you are embarrassed, then you are in good company, LOL, as so did I!


  4. I'm embarrassed to admit I had to look up where Sharjah was. They are beautiful stamps and dogs.

    Thanks everyone for stopping by. Yes, I do recall the cigarette cards and something tells me that my Grandfather had a small collection – I think I can recall one with primroses on. I have no idea what happened to them.

    Back to the stamps, I don't recall where I got them from, but I do have another two sets like them, one with cats on.

    Dogs were my first choice too, but it wasn't as easy as I thought.
    Your dog stamps are a fine set and not the usual ones chosen.
    You will have fun with Sunday Stamps.

  9. I have a friend who would love those stamps! Reminds me of the cigarette cards we used to collect at children, I loved the wild flower ones best.
