Mustard, Custard & Wildlife Postcards

121709.1

 

4 very cool cards from Lucy in England:

Replica of mustard container. Love the odd size and irregular shape!

Colman's of Norwich, founded in 1823 to make mustard.

 

 

 

 

121709.3

 

A yellowhammer bird found in hedgerows around farmland.

Very pretty photo taken by Lucy herself!

Another vintage replica card. Like the mustard card, it is non-standard size and has a slightly irregular shape.

In 1850, Alfred Bird perfected an eggless custard powder for his wife.

Awesome photocard of dark coated fallow deer taken by Lucy at Parham House.

Lucy added this special issue dog stamp. It says "Tafka was rehomed by Battersea Dog & Cat Home". LOVE this stamp!(NO cancellation marks!)

In April, the USPS will be selling a special series like this, also. Can't wait!
