With so many people emailing these days it’s rare to get a letter at all and even rarer to get one with a stamp attached. Most of the mail we get comes in prepaid envelopes, I hadn’t thought about that until this week when I was surprised by a stamped, hand addressed letter.

These stamps were in my wallet but since I bought them the price of posting a letter has gone up to $1.00

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

  1. It’s hard to believe it costs $1.00 to post a letter. No wonder we love the cyber world so much. Love the photo and the ‘old’ stamps 🙂

      1. How to create postal poetic justice. 1 Send a letter to Aust Post. 2 Forget to include a return address. 3 Fail to attach a stamp.

      2. I did think of posting it with just a 60c stamp on it but really wanted it to get to the person. It did me no good, I haven’t heard anything back from them.

  2. Cool stamps! I still send cards and postcards and people love getting them. But they are getting much more expensive, although here, they’re not nearly a dollar, thank goodness.


    1. Whoops, sorry about that. I’m also amazed by the sculptures some people are able to create using chainsaws. We saw wonderful examples in Tasmania.

    2. I thought that was a great set of stamps, loved the designs and colours. I think stamp collecting is going to become popular again as a lot fewer will be in circulation.

So, what do you think?
