Sunday Stamps - a butterfly from Canada

Adrienne sent me one of her classic collages. I love her style, always perfectly done.






On the flip side, Adrienne loves to use interesting postage, often using vintage stamps. I hope to use the others she included in future Sunday Stamps, so they were axed for today's blog.  I love the bonus collage on this side.



This is the first time the definitive 22c butterfly has come through the letterbox. I love the series as a whole, they are so bright and attractive.

  1. Yes, the butterfly is very attractive. And not in the same position I can see in most of the stamps today.

    1. And an unusual typography for a stamp, I think.

    2. I was attracted by this 'other position' and point of view, too. Beautiful!

  2. I never know which way up the Monarch stamp should go.

    1. Looks good from most directions, I suspect.

  4. I wonder if the confusing 'up' position of these insect stamps was deliberate? No matter, this is a beautiful stamp and I always look forward to that first monarch sighting!

    1. Haven't seen any so far this year, although May has been dismally cold for spring.

  5. Been a while since I've seen this Canadian butterfly - a lovely one! And the collage is so cool as well!

    1. I love it when I can combine a mail art post with Sunday Stamps.
