MSCE #2


These fantastic rubber stamps from BladeRubber are facsimiles of original postal marks and I love them! BladeRubber is just beside the British Museum, so usually gets a visit when I'm down that way, but, handily, Dear Husband works just round the corner, so he was sent to get these to save me the shipping charge! They're really lovely people in the shop and have a wonderful online catalogue and a great blog full of ideas.

To have a play with them, I found a couple of big luggage labels and glued on some old stamps that I got from the charity shop. One stamp looks like the mail train and the other is a Christmas stamp with Hark the Herald Angels Sing in swirly calligraphy. I think they look quite neat! And they're going to have to count as my MakeSomethingCoolEveryday #2 for April!

Ok, these are very very cool! I want stamps like this - and am now on a quest for find some. Doing good on MSCE (or MSCNE!!!)!

Hugs your way, across the many miles.

Ooh, these are wonderful. If they were mine I don't think I could part with them - pressies would have to remain nameless.

Good luck for the rest of April - you mad fool!

These are gorgeous! All the times I've been to the British Museum and I've never even noticed this shop, I will be sure to pay it a visit next time I'm there.

I love making gift tags too - but haven't thought to use stamps. So neat! Isn't MSCE in April neat?
