Sunday Stamps time of the week again! This week's theme calls for entries on the postal services. So herein is the I heart post's post on postal stamps featuring post. Tongue twister, much?

Luckily the stamps are still very beautiful. I love that the bright red colour of the post box, the postman's uniform and of the vehicle, really stands out and links the design of the five stamps together so nicely. I also really love that the designer has chosen to use colonial buildings (presumably post offices) as the back drop to the stamps.
Also, as an added extra, I thought I would also show off these nice little stamps which celebrate the Birth of the Post Office. They are overprinted with Norfolk Island, so I thought that would tie-in quite nicely with last week's Sunday Stamps post too.
