Hello, little Red Panda!
This particular stamp is a favourite for three reasons.
1) It has a lovely shape that frames the boat perfectly.
2) The frank mark is in an almost perfect position.
3) This stamp was attached to an envelope that contained a cd from Clare Blackman – an ace singer from Essex. Check the Billy-O out of her, she has the most amazing voice.
These have been sitting in my wallet for ages but the post mark says 2008 – they can’t have been in there that long?! Have a feeling a friend at work had these in her draw for me but forgot about them. I’m not a James Bond fan by any stretch of the imagination but I like the posters. I went passed Noel Coward’s house where Ian Flemming wrote one of the Bond books when I was at St.Margaret at Cliffe in the summer. It looked very nice place indeed.
Not sure what it is about these. Is it the simplicity? The uniformity of them when next to one another? I like them anyway – the number ‘1’, the contour map like lines.
They came on an envelope from Eva Schreuder who makes lovely fabric covered badges.
