The Postworld on Stamps

This week Sunday Stamps is for Letters, postcards and the post. I have published many times this kind of stamps, as it is one of my favourite themes. And I guess it  is the same for a lot of mail lovers.

So today I want just to show you some of the latest I have got and really love.

From Belgium.
Smurfs are my heroes!

From Germany

From the Netherlands
I like this Escherian idea!

  1. A nice selection. The center of the last Netherlands stamp looks odd--maybe just a stamp shape?

    1. I think it is to be scratched, but I didn't.

    2. As far as I know the center is decorative and not to be scratched. It is gold coloured, maybe because it was issued as a December stamp (christmas stamp).

    3. Oh thanks, Heleen! ("Usual" information again). It is still one of my ever favourite stamps!

  2. What an interesting selection of stamps and how nice to be able to send a I love stamps stamp. I like the last stamps journey of a letter. I remember them doing a scratch stamp for valentines day when you scratched the heart and it said I love you. I wonder if this is a similar message.

  3. Wonderful! I don't think I have seen these, maybe they will come my way via Postcrossing. Thank you for participating.

  6. A fun selection, I wouldn't want to scratch the stamp either, but I can see how it might increase sales, buy 2, one to keep, one to scratch.

      By the way, they even only were available in sheets of 20 stamps :-)

  7. Thank you for sharing, Eva! Well, the smurf doesn't need any further comment :-)

    I know the Dutch stamps, but by seeing them in your blog I learned that I didn't always watch them well! I knew the 'I love stamps' stamp well, but just now I see that the love comes from both sides :-)
    "Stamps love me", I think a great motto!

    1. Every time you look at the stamps, you discover something. I also think it is a great motto. And, by the way, I think stamps love us more than they love collectors, because we give them the chance of travelling to far countries! :D

  8. Apart from "I love stamps", I don't believe I've seen any of these before. I think the Netherlands has won the award this week for the most entries. :)
