stamp love

I've been home a few days, but I'm not quite up to speed yet. I had a lovely time with family and friends. Sometimes it's good to step away from your everyday life for a while - it's a gentle way of being reminded just how good it is. I've come home feeling refreshed and invigorated, and so grateful for my quiet and simple life by the sea. It suits me perfectly. I don't think I have the energy or desire for the hustle and bustle of the south east anymore. I didn't even take any photographs (well, just three, and that was when I was nearly home again).

All I have to show you are some new stamps. The Battersea stamps.


The cute factor alone is enough to make me smile!

It feels good to be back home doesn't it? I always feel like that when I have been away on holiday! The stamps are great but where's Walter?!!! x

Oh I must get some of those. I seem to miss out on stamps these days as parcels seem to have printed out labels on them.
I am just wondering about Bessie having seen her photograph in a previous post.

Just noticed you live in Cornwall too - whereabouts? It's nice to go away, but I get such a lovely feeling when we cross the Tamar bridge.... nearly home! If you're anywhere near Portscatho, fancy coming to the Homespun Fair on Easter Monday? Have a lovely weekend x

Oh, they are brilliant! My post office never seems to have piccy stamps, more's the pity.

this is my patch said...

It's nice to see you back Diana, where you belong in that lovely county of yours. I'd so much rather live in Cornwall, I really hate the hustle and bustle of the South East. The stamps are good aren't they, I'm not sure if Tigger has one eye or is winking! x

Hi Diana
I kept the stamp from my card ;-) as I loved it so much!
Yes, as the song says "It's very nice to go travelling, but it's oh so nice to come home..." and as you say, a bit of distance between ourselves and our everyday helps to clarify what we love about the everyday, doesn't it?
have a super duper weekend,
Denise x
