I think I received the same stamps on, maybe the same postcard!(Not that I got a lot of mail from Singapur!). I think it's a great theme for stamps, and some trades intrigue me. There is a similar series in Spain, but they issue a stamp a year, or something like that.
I am sure you got the dairy man from the Philatelic Museum like me. It is a good theme. Brazil also has a set like that, I think.
The ice ball setter really has me intrigued!!
On this hot day I wish the was one on my street :)
I love this serie, thank you for sharing!By the way, not everyone thinks these beautiful: I joined a 'chaincard' some time ago, themed 'ugly stamps', and this stamp was chosen by one of the others as 'ugly' stamp...Indeed there are trade stamps (not sure if those are vanishing trades) from Brazil, they are nice, too.
I know that opinions can vary about anything, but it is very hard to see these as ugly stamps. I like the colors, the theme, and the fact that they chose drawings that resemble real people, not an idealized portrait of what a person should be.
I love your topic choice - definitely not the one that comes first, nor even second or third to mind. The stamps are lovely too!
Thanks, I have been hanging on to these for Sunday Stamps for a while.
Here's hoping that the dairy trade never vanishes.
I'm with you there - if I had to give up cheese I'd be very unhappy.
