The above one is a 1976 stamp featuring a Grandpa Dickson rose.
This one & the one below are from a postcard featuring ‘Embroidery’ by Dorris Kirlew, a watercolour artist from Brighton whom I believed passed away in 1998.
This one is from a 1976 Royal National Society envelope.
Another 1976 rose stamp.. this one is Rosa Mundi.
And this one is 1976 Sweet Briar stamp.
All of the 1976 stamp & the envelope are from a 1976 Centenary of the Royal National Rose Society envelope with four brand new issue stamps on it. I’ll be keeping an eye out for more of these as the stamps are the perfect size & the colours are gorgeous!
What do you think guys? Hopefully they will soon be available for you here.

Today my best friend is getting married!!!!!!!
Which means that I’m in Newquay, Cornwall, trying not to ruin my make up & signing the witness papers… exciting!
Above are the necklaces I made a couple of days ago.
These three are for the bridesmaids, as thank you gifts from the bride. The first one is a vintage fashion illustration from a 1977 book, the second is from a postcard & the final one is actually fabric with a ball of yarn motif on it.
I’m hoping to sell the others… every single other one was made using vintage stamps, who knew they had such cute designs?!
