Nice stamp today

Always happy when I receive a cover with a personalized stamp. This one is even more special (!?!) because its about the chickencity "Barneveld" where we have a chickenmuseum. Barneveld was chosen for the best municipality in Gelderland (Province in The Netherlands) 2009-2010. Maybe a bit strange because we have to see 2010 into two months??!? How ever, nice cover with a nice sheet I bought on EBAY last week. Maybe later show it to you.

Personal Family Stamp

Our granddaughter, Isa, has her 2nd birthday tomorrow. We got an invitation to come on her birthday. Nice card with some photo's from the last 2 years. I made a personalized stamp with the text that we will visit her. Very special stamp for a very special day.

Polar Minisheet

Did find this minisheet in my collection. Had to soak it of the paper last week with some other nice stamps. Like the picture on the sheet and of course the two stamps. Belgium is on of the countries that has issues like this. Must have also some older MS from Belgium with a polar item. Do know they are out there, collectors of this topic. Maybe someone like to exchange this one with me for other stamps. Looking at the mail.

International Year of Astronomy

Did receive a very nice sheet from Canada. There are a lot of issue's this year with the theme above. Like the picture. Like to be there once but then we need some quick invention to travel to the stars. And what if we are there? Maybe so far away is only yesterday.......
Think you also can collect these stamps in a collection "space".
Do we have readers here who collect astronomy?

How to mail a packet

This is the way I like to mail my packets (if I have them). This one I got back this week and I almost did not know I have mailed it to my mother in law. Its nice to have family who keep the stamps for you and thats a nice way to get new stamps with a nice cancellation. This one has a minisheet from a new serie "Grenzeloos Nederland" (Netherland without borders) 4 types of personalized stamps, two with the decembervalue ( € 0,34) and one the normal value -€ 0,44- for mail inside our country till 20 grams. Also a normal 10 cents stamp and two stamps from the AEX/Euronext index who exist 25 years in 2008. You see its look like the stockmarkets are always goining up..... We -common people- know better.

More Birthday

Think this one is nicer than the 88 stamps. You cannot buy them regular because they are only sold at trial places and the Philatelic Service in Groningen. I ordered some to mail if there is a birthday in our family.
It has the frame of a personalized stamp but it is not. Just a "normal" limited issue from our TNT

Happy Birthday

Leuke zegels van "onze" TNT, zelf krassen met een ballpoint op een postzegel, hoe heeft het zover kunnen komen dat ik daar ook aan moet.

Als je gebruikt alle variaties wilt sparen is er denkelijk een lange weg te gaan, alhoewel iedereen is eens per jaar jarig en als je maar genoeg kennissen hebt die de zegels voor je bewaren kom je een heel eind.

Het idee om gegomde en zelfklevende zegels te maken ontgaat me ten ene male, wat voegt het toe ? Uitzoeken wat de consument het liefste wil is het ook niet. Je moet ze tezamen komen in een cellofaan verpakking. Misschien weet iemand het...

We all have one every year our birthday. Here in The Netherlands there are a few new issues with birthday stamps. This one is not so nice but, I have to say, special. You see what I mean and how you can use the stamps. They are sold in two versions. Normal and as stickers.
Have no idea whats the meaning of this. You have to buy them both, so if you like the stickerversion or the normal issue you have also stamps you don't want or like. I know people who like the "easy" version of stamps, all are non collectors of these nice little pieces of art. Strange you -maybe- will see stamps with ballpointinkt on them, and you need these for your collection.... .
