The nostalgic beauty of proper stamps.

I just have to share this envelope that popped through my letterbox this week.
It's an envelope of fabric from Japan, a very small envelope with rather alot of stamps - with even more on the front!
How beautiful to see proper stamps instead of the impersonal package labels we now have in the UK. 
It immediately sent me on a nostalgic trip down memory lane, to my 70's childhood and stamp albums, full of colourful stamps from those magical, faraway lands.  
Whatever happened to stamp albums?  I wish I still had mine.
