vintage and contemporary postcards and stamps from around the world

When I was young, we used to call the mittens with a string 'idiot mittens', Really, with the number of mitts and gloves I've lost over the years, that string would be handy (though a longer one, perhaps) These were illustrated by Jillian Ditner
