UGH! This week the price of postage has risen by almost a dollar to send International post. Until now we've had a $1.70 price for postcards and 'card only' post. That no longer exists. Any mail being sent from AUS internationally will now cost $2.60.


If anyone has any unfranked Aussie stamps that they'd like to send me, it would be most appreciated. (For my stamp collection, of course. )

Jude, did you use the image button in the (comment) menu? After the LINK button, to the left...

trying again…maybe this time I,ll get it right……..seem to have figured it out now…thanks for your help carina…... 

Thanks, Jude for reminding me to read about Tove Jansson. It has recently come out a biography of her, in Swedish. Nice stamps!

Those stamps are gorgeous! How long ago were these Moomins invented?? I've only just found out about them in the last year.


I think Tove signed the first Moomin-like figure in 1943, in a satire magazine. I've always thought it's a series for young adults, and they have been redesigned to more child-friendly versions by the commercial powers ...

I was given some Moomin tape which is quite evil in its humour, and I love it! What's that girl's name, with her hair up?? Are Moomins a big thing in Finland, or are they just celebrating the centenary of Tove?

Little My is her name! (or original in Swedish, Lilla My) Her hair is great :D Yes Moomins are important in Finland and we miss Tove Jansson...

 'Lilla My' hair is the best!! Hey Carina, if you get some used spare stamps of Moomin, could you send them to me, please??

Ok, will do

I think I've found a way to get around the latest rise in the price of sending mail to y'all from France -- use 2 or 3 low value stamps, and a high value one as if to make up the correct postage rate eg 5,10 and 75 cents. BUT if you stick the wrong -- and a bit lower -- high value stamp on (I am sure that you are following the highs and lows of this) UPSIDE DOWN, then you can get away with a slightly lower rate of postage (eg 5, 10 and 65 cents).

Yes Vizma it's a real bummer. I've started sending more stuff and using envelopes as you can sent up to 50gm for the same price.
