Today's theme in Sunday Stamps-II is Pets. Not my favourite, but I have recently received some nice stamps that can fit, from Canada and the USA.

The Ramadan is going to start tomorrow. So the occasion to wish رمضان مبارك to everyone who celebrates it with this handmade postcard sent Phillip (the USA).
It arrived with three uncancelled Delicioso Forever stamps. With them, the USPS "celebrates the influence of Central and South American, Mexican and Caribbean foods on American cuisine. This booklet of 20 stamps features six dishes from an array of Latin American culinary traditions that have found new life and variations in the United States".
Thanks to Phillip and Bryon I have got the whole delicious set!

Two envelopes sent to Eric's mail art call:
We get more and more paper bags to wrap our purchases, so let’s recycle them! Let’s use a paper bag to create an envelope. Use any technique you want: keep the structure of the bag or deconstruct it, keep it plain or decorate it… Do what you want, the only rule being that the paper of the envelope must come from a paper bag. No deadline. Received items will be published on his blog

Not that I receive a lot of these, but, you know... There are few presents that you can compare to a letter written on a notebook. I mean... when the letter takes the whole notebook. This was sent by Heleen (the Netherlands), and (almost) nothing could have made me happier.
