From Amy Irwen, a lovely stitched collage and artistamp sheet in a handmade envelope.

I love animals, so I also appreciated the frog stickers, cow rubber stamp, hummingbird postage, and the recycled butterfly postage stamp on the envelope. The "Stray Cat Amy" artistamps are a special treat, especially since Andrew and I share our small apartment with a cat named Josefina who we adopted from a local shelter.

Thanks, Amy!

I was re-reading the book about W. Reginald Bray, also known as 'The Englishman who posted himself and other curiosities'.

And I discovered this crocheted envelope! Over 110 years old! 

It has been created by his mother, Mary Bray, who sewed a small piece of card to it to affix the postage stamps. 
The address was not that extended in those days (October 1899).

You can find this envelope also on the website on W.R. Bray.
