  1. How fun! Alas, I cannot participate as I will not have any US stamps… :( But those birds stamps are SUPER lovely! We have been getting all kinds of glorious colourful birds coming to our fruit feeders here… My current fave: Cherries Tanager (google it!). :)

    Happy mail swapping!

    • Hi Annie! Thanks for popping over to say hello! It’s a bit of trick to do a multi-national mail swap but if you’d like one of my envelopes ….send me a private note via email (or the contact form) and I’ll add you to my secret list! ; )

      I just looked up the Cherries Tanager – Wowza! What a pretty bird! Lucky you living in a tropical place…I bet the birding there is AMAZING! It’s my dream to travel to South America one day (shhhh – don’t tell my dogs – they’re not psyched for us to take an extended trip!)

      Sending love to you and your family
