3 things

Hello guys :) for the three things of today's post, I thought about.. stamps!
I'm going to show you my top 3 favourite US stamps I own:



1. "First man over the moon" 10c stamp issued in 1969. I just really love astronauts and planets, and this stamp is really representative of both!


2. "P.S. write soon" 15c stamp issued in 1980. I think this one doesn't need an explanation, does it? ;)


3. "Architecture USA (Smithsonian Washington)" 15c stamp issued in 1980. I'm a sucker for architecture and also for black and white photography. Once again, this is a stamp that represents two more things I love :)

Do you have favourite stamps from your collection? Feel free to tell me more about them! :D
Have a nice week!

  1. Awesome stamps, Fab! I think my favorite stamps are the american ones, they always have pretty arts on cool themes.
    My last Top List Tuesday was about my favorite Brazilian stamps, have you seen that?

  4. Beautiful stamps! As for mine... I love my Roald Dahl stamps, and the ones I got during the olympics and paralympics this summer. I think my favourite one is one that was among some others in a little bagful my parents bought earlier in the summer when they were on holiday. I just loved sorting through a mix of old GB stamps, and then I found one from when the Olympics were last in London, and I just thought that it was a great one to find, and to find it by chance in 2012.

    So I guess it's my favourite more for the story than the stamp specifically :). But all stamps are beautiful! Just wish I could get my hands on the Disney/Pixar US ones!

    Great post, by the way :)

    1. Found a new favourite today :). One from Singapore that celebrates "15 years of postage stamps." Gotta love a stamp that talks about stamps!

  5. I really like the design on the 3rd stamp!Well, I have a few with some great illustrations and it's quite difficult to pick favourites, but I've always been intrigued with stamps from denmark and the netherlands!Oh & nautical themed stamps.

    1. The only nautical themed one I own is the Titanic one from Canada, which I love! However I wish I had more of those, since it's a theme I really love too :)
