Project Dissimulation Update

When my mum came to visit last week, she brought with her a sheet of Chinese ‘lovebird’ stamps cut from a bubble envelope, which they had clearly very nearly covered.

She had found them when sorting through some of my dad’s effects, and was happy to donate them to Project Dissimulation – it seemed about as fitting as could be!

If you would love a lovebird, too, you know where to find them…  (As always, all proceeds will be donated to Beating Bowel Cancer.)

  1. Oh, they are beautiful! I will definitely be adding one or two to my next order! Funny, I love that bright blue and last night I was fascinated to see that it’s the colour favoured by male bowerbirds when collecting items to decorate their elaborate nests. They nick blue clothes pegs, drinking straws, bottle caps… anything which is that blue!
