Year of the rat

2007 Year of the rat s/s - JAPAN

Today I've received an interesting cover from Jacqui (Japan).

Do you know if it is a Japanese ATM? Or just a postage label? Inside the cover was the promised 2008 Year of the rat s/s.

Very beautiful! Thank you!

UK Insects

The JOY of the BUGS


Issue Date:
15 April 2008
I was very surprised (and should I say in a good way!) when I saw the above image of these amazing stamps!

The design isn't complex... rather simple in my opinion, but very eye catching, wouldn't you agree?

My public congratulations to the UK postal office for such a nice set of stamps!

I would love to get one set from a fellow collector and reader of the blog! Can you help me?

Thank you in advance!
