I Love Windmills On Stamps

But I have also received windmills on stamps:



The postcard of the beautiful site of Kinderdijk that I posted yesterday arrived with this matched stamp. 



The second stamp shows one of the mills at the Zaanse Schans (again in the Netherlands). 


And the third, somewhere in the region of La Mancha (Spain), where part of the story of Don Quixote was set; and especially the famous windmill scene, with Don Quixote's attack on windmills that he believes to be ferocious giants.


This stamp was designed by a 16 years old girl, and won the prize for youngsters of Disello, a stamp design contest in 2015. By the way, the third edition of the contest is still open.

I am adding this post to Sunday Stamps-II (Today's theme is free).

  1. Wow, I like that drawing! So clear it's Don Quichote and companion, drawn with a few lines only, love it!

    And oh, I forgot that I've sent you the second stamp before! I just have sticked it to an other (matching!) postcard which almost is ready to be sent to you :-) The windmill is one of the mills at the Zaanse Schans.
