it must be love, love, love

7 Oct

At my job as a secretary, I open the mail in the morning.

And this morning while doing so, I fell in love…….

…..with a new set of stamps issued by Australia Post. Entitled “Long Weekend”, uses fantastic retro photos to show various activities that families get up to on long weekends. I vaguely recall another set in this series that had a campervan on it. Wish I had jumped on their website then.

The blurb on the Stamp Shop website reads:

“This latest in the long running Through the Years series, which began in 2006, focuses on the various activities undertaken by Australians on long weekends.

Beginning with a beach weekend in the 1950s through to a skiing weekend in the 1990s. The other activities featured in the stamps include fishing, camping, surfing and house-boating.”

Here are some pictures of them:

Think I might have to get myself down to an Australia Post next Friday and get me some super sexy retro stamps! I think they’d look good framed.
