T for Tuesday - Stamp!!! Stamps and lots of Stamps!!!

 I've been soaking and soaking and soaking stamps as you can see. My post office lady has been kind enough to give me stamps that she had no use for and I've been swapping used stamps for postcards from a lady in Germany.
 I have definitely enjoyed looking at all these wonderful stamps from all over the world. 
 When I get organised I will scan the stamps indivudally...lol not every single one but the ones I think are very unique so you can share in this wonderfly philatelic craze.
 The water turns really yellow and I cant see the stamps so I just have to fish into the water and hope for the best, yes some of them
 I lay it out on towels overnight and it curls up and dries itself out, then I store it
 I have learnt to dry them upside down or they stick to the towels if they have lots of glue on them.
 I have had to throw quite a lot away as they wont come off the envelopes.

Next week I will show you the stamps I bought from stamp collectors, they are beautiful, some are unused and well worth the investment.

We have had cold snap here in Sunny Queensland the Tropical State so its been lots of tea and soup for our household and lots of trips to the toilet hahahahha.

EDITED: sorry Elizabeth I forgot the photo of the tea, will have to do it next week and no I didnt drink the water tee hee

  1. Hi, it's still Monday here and you have already written two Tuesday blogs!
    I love seeing all those stamps. You had quite a job there!
    I spotted and recognised lots of Italian stamps. (I used to live in Italy).
    Looking forward to seeing you bought stamps.

  2. Wow, what a wonderful lady at the PO. You sure lucked out.

    Is that water to drink, or for the stamps (grin)?

    Thanks for sharing these beauties with us for T this Tuesday. Tea and soup sounds good about now, though. Can you tell I'm hungry?

  3. Oh you have me drooling over all those stamps Bridget.
    I have collected and been fascinated by postage stamps since I was a girl.
    They really are tiny pieces of art with so much to teach us aren't they.
    Happy T Day oxo

  6. Oh, memories! My siblings and I used to collect stamps as kids, and when we grew out of it, my mother got the bug and took over all the collections and added to them. I guess none of us really inherited her collecting spirit. Happy T-Day!
