As we sent out our invitations last week (whew!) I only then thought about the postage stamps we would use. For some reason, I just assumed that there would be some great "nature" type postage stamps available, since I seem to remember there always being some stamp of some quantity having birds on it, or wildflowers, or something.
Nope. Nothing like that. I even searched through alllll the different lower priced stamps, to see if we could combine several stamps together (I know I know, this would have probably had to be a "project" that took collecting for many months on Ebay or something - which I never would have done in the first place). Let's just say, that my "nature" options were not that great. There were a couple higher priced stamps of mountains...but rather expensive...if 98 cents per stamp is expensive (ummm...yes...) So we opted for my current fave stamp set...the King & Queen of Hearts.
Pretty stinkin' cute for stamps 'eh? But since each of our envelopes only needed 44 cent postage, the lil love duo had to be separated...which affected me for like 1 second.
And while browsing the 2010 stamps that are set to come out this year - I got a lil jealous - 'cuz there are some goodies:
Hello perfect stamps of conifer branches. You would have been delightful on our invitation envelopes. Not that anyone would have noticed but me :-)
