the diamond jubilee



2012 marks the Queen's diamond jubilee.  Canada Post is celebrating her sixty year reign with five stamp mini-panes.  They're stamp-on-stamp designs that use an original stamp design.  I really like seeing the new stamp side by side with the original.  Love that 4 cent-er!  It was issued in 1953 to commorate the Queen's coronation.

  1. Ooh! I'll have to check out what the Royal Mail has planned. I got so excited about them issuing Roald Dahl stamps that I completely forgot to check about the jubilee :)

  4. Have you ever thought of doing a post about using vintage stamps as part of gift wrapping? I know that it doesn't fit in with the "send more mail" theme but it DOES give your adoring readers other ways we could use your stamp packs. eg. http://alittlevintagestory.blogspot.com/2010/12/all-wrapped-up.html http://bugsandfishes.blogspot.com/2008/11/gift-wrap-ideas-4-vintage-stamps.html
