A bit disappointed and also happy (yes, that's possible)

A while ago I ordered a lot of bird stamps which still have 
a value on them on the Bpost website. Although I made sure to pick stamps which
were marked as available, yesterday I got only these, all the others were no longer in stock.

This card comes from a spontaneous Sunday Postcrossing meeting in the Netherlands! 
I was lucky enough to win it.

Collecting Christmas stamps

I remember writing this blog post in 2010 
who would have thought that only three years later (started collecting last year)
I would actually "hunt" for these FDCs and buy them too! 

I bought these covers in a little shop in Portland, Maine.
I love them and yes, now I can see the value of them!
(and they are still just pretty too)

Efteling Postcrossing meeting!

Last week I attended the Efteling meeting
in the Netherlands. One of the fellow
members let us sign this card (yes, including me!)
for me. I had no idea, haha.

She used a stamp she had designed especially for this meeting
and a Christmas stamp which I didn't have yet! 
Although the stamps will stay on the card (obviously) I am really happy 
to have them in my collection!

Mail gift, Christmas stamps!

I received this envelope with lots of Christmas stamps today!
I got it from Pamela, whose blog you can find here CappuccinoAndArtJournal

Now I must try my hardest to make her something nice in return ^^
