Another day, another post with a title inspired by a Simon & Garfunkel song! How could I resist when my outgoing mail from last week seemed to come straight from the skies (and beyond the atmosphere, for that matter)?
The massive haul of tag sale craft paper I acquired a few weeks ago contains multitudes, basically, and I have enjoyed making a new discovery every time I attempt to sort through it. It included a whole pack of cloud-covered prints, which paired so well with the USPS’ fairly new release of planet stamps…
Seriously, have I mentioned how much I love these stamps? As a lifelong Jupiter fan, I’m pleased to see my favorite planet depicted with a gorgeous neon and pastel aesthetic. There’s something alien and exciting about seeing these heavenly bodies juxtaposed against such familiar earthly blue sky on the envelopes!
(While we’re on the subject of space-themed stamps, though, may I just make one more request? Can we get some US 2001: A Space Odyssey stamps in the works? I know Royal Mail released one recently–imagine a stamp with the starchild or the monolith on it!)
I hope all of my pen pals are experiencing blue skies (literal or metaphorical) at the moment–and if not, I’m excited to send some your way!
