orange stampy goodness

orange stampy goodness

I was so taken with this envelope! This came from a blog reader in Florida, and I covet her stamps. I've never seen the Handwritten Letter/Letters Mingle Souls stamp before - love it!!

she sent me postcards! cute ones!

Along with a sweet short letter, she sent me these four adorable postcards from The Cutest Sneeze in the World, a set of fantastic cat postcards with artwork by Jeffrey Brown. The irony is that I had seen these before, and shortly after she sent me these postcards, two other correspondents wrote to me on them. So yes, I caved, they're on order and I'll have my own set soon. :-)

my cat does this all the time when I'm writing!

This one is my favorite postcard - this is just like Soda with my pen as I write! I love the super-wonky big round eyes.

  1. I remember your Soda blogs, with Soda lying on top of your stationary " Soda approves". We all love or loved our cats. America has more cats then dogs as pets. This is a known fact. Cats Rule and dogs Drool lol!

  2. Oooh! I love the envelope! Um, I may be biased toward the orange. Best color ever.

    My cat Pepper does that chomping too, but usually when she's really annoyed at me for writing instead of playing with her... I have to chase her off of me at that point.

    I don't know how we'd live without Chronicle Books postcards though.

  3. I love that envelope - great color and wonderful stamps, especially the "Handwritten letter by . . ." stamp.

    And speaking of cats and pen caps, when I was in college I had a friend whose cat liked to fetch Bic pen caps while we were studying. She would plant herself on your open book until you threw the cap and she fetched it like a dog, making you throw it over and over.

  6. JP - I love cat fetching stories! One of my cats used to fetch when he was little, but he won't do it any more.

  7. I like the Handwritten Letter stamp!
    I haven't been so big fan of rubber stamps, but when I saw the AIR MAIL stamp in the card from my Snoopy friend http://sfimail.blogspot.com/2009/09/lovely-snoopy.html I got interested. I haven't yet asked from her where she has bought it, but I tried to find airmail stamps in Internet, and found this very beautiful one http://www.stampsdirect.co.uk/air-mail-rubber-stamp-713-p.asp and ordered it but haven't yet got it.
    So what I'm looking for, is rubber stamps which have the shape of the beautiful stamps used in old days in post offices. The stamp in your beautiful orange envelope has that shape, so I like it, though I even more would like to find something with AIR MAIL text. Have you any ideas from where I could find something like this?

  8. Sirpa, those stamps you linked are lovely! I am not a real expert on rubber stamps: honestly, I buy most of mine from eBay.

  12. I read somewhere that letter writing is a lost art.
    I'm not going to lose it. It's so fun to receive postcards and letters in the mail. I still do that. Interesting enough my aunt was telling me that I was the only one who sent her an actual birthday card in the mail when everyone else in the family and friends sent her just e-mails . I thought that was sad.
    I think it's a great idea that you put this blog together.

  14. Thank you Juli for the link!!!
    There were links to International shops in Catslife Press, so I will make an order to http://www.thestampattic.co.uk/ to get a quicker delivery to Finland. At the moment I think I will order the stamp you have used in the orange letter, and then some more... :)

  16. I'm playing a bit of catch-up with blog reading today. I hope the people who have commented about the stamps check back because I have another stamp resource I want to recommend.... Meer Images always thrills and often tucks a little something extra in with the order.
