These beautiful Hubble imagery stamps of nebulæ make a fine addition to the space section of my collection. I’m in love with the art and gentle colors of the constellation stamps. <3
Wow. Just wow.

October is National Stamp Collection Month
This interesting map is a completed map of stamps of from countries across the world. The stamps were added to the map after being purchased by a stamp collector. Underneath each stamp is an illustration of the stamp that should be collected and added to the map.

I would like to collect stamps from all over the world. The problem is, 1. old fashion mail is not really the hype these days bec people prefer to do everything electronically; and 2. I dunno anybody from all over the world. I hava a cousin in Japan and 1 in Italy and basically that’s it.
I wonder if there are still people who sends letter thru mail? I wish people in tumblr would reblog this,and someone who still writes the old fashion way would see it and… we’ll i hope you’d send me a letter. It’s been a lifelong dream for me to travel around the world but that is physically impossible so i hope thru your letters, i would be able to “go & see” your hometown.

Many Thanks in advance!
