Love the LOVE Stamp

Postage stamps are an everyday necessity.  We need them to mail bills and such.  Buying stamps is not something that many of us give much thought to, but it could be!

A beautiful postage stamp can be a wonderful and thoughtful addition to a letter or card that you are mailing to a loved one. It is interesting how your eye gravitates towards a stamp that is not the "Forever Stamp." We are so accustom to seeing it, that when it is something different, we are immediately drawn to it.

Use a postage stamp as an opportunity to show the recipient that you were thinking of them, even as you put the stamp on the envelope. The right stamp can add a special touch. At Petalos di Pauli we love the new "Pansies in a Basket" LOVE stamp. Why? Just take a look:
We think the USPS will be selling quite a lot of these just in time for Mother's Day.

Pansies in a Basket stamp features the image of a white woven cart filled with deep and light purple pansies and green foliage. The floral design is a detail from a watercolor created by the late Dorothy Maienschein, an employee of Hallmark Cards, Inc. Introduced as a Mother’s Day card in 1939, Hallmark reissued the design as a friendship card in 1941. Since Hallmark began tracking sales in 1942, almost 30 million cards with this pansy cart design have been purchased; more than any card in history. The word “LOVE” adorns the left side of the stamp.
