royally lovely postage

I found myself feeling giddy at the discovery of these new stamps today. I understand that may sound a bit, well... dramatic, but I think that if you're going to buy a gorgeous handmade card for $5+ dollars you should be able to dress it up with some modern postage. Just my personal philosophy and please don't get me started on that hideous 'forever' stamp, I shudder.

There are two other stamp designs that made my heart-a-flutter. The Masters of American Photography released in 2001. Oh, how I wish I still had a sheet of those. And of course, the Charles + Ray Eames stamps that made their debut last summer. I may or may not have traversed four post offices in search of a stack of these, just saying.
