Postage Stamps

A collection of postage stamps, originally uploaded by credocola.

I absolutely love stamps. While sorting out all my art supplies and papers I came across loads of stamps torn from envelopes. I already had a collection in an old rooibos tin but I kept finding more. Now the tin is absolutely stuffed. This morning I decided to sort them and see how many countries were represented. In total 31:

  1. Australia
  2. Belgium
  3. Canada
  4. Czech Republic
  5. Denmark
  6. Egypt
  7. Finland
  8. France
  9. Germany
  10. Ghana
  11. Great Britain
  12. India
  13. Israel
  14. Italy
  15. Japan
  16. Jordan
  17. Lebanon
  18. Malaysia
  19. Netherlands
  20. New Zealand
  21. Norway
  22. Pakistan
  23. Poland
  24. Singapore
  25. South Africa
  26. Sweden
  27. Switzerland
  28. Transkei
  29. Trinidad & Tobago
  30. USA
  31. Zimbabwe

This is my pet peeve:


  1. I love postage stamps. actually now i am collecting them and have some really neat old ones. me to the pet peeve drives me crazy.. i hate the sticker.

  2. I hear you on the pet peeve! Some times when I take a small package to the post office, a metered postage like that is the only option, but whenever possible I use stamps.

  3. Hello, I saw you visited my Interpals profile and I also read that you have a blog and I decided to check it, and it is about mail, which is great. Well I came to tell you I am since now following you and let you know each one is my blog too.

    A few weeks ago I also was trying to check how from how many countries I got postage. I guess I have a lot but not as many as you, but i need to check it again :D

    Have a great weekend,

  5. Postage stamps are the best. I too am guilty of keeping a bunch of pretty stamps, although I don't have a nice place to put them. You have so many! You should take pictures of your favorites. :D

  6. How cute! I always saved stamps from birthday cards or post cards when I was younger. I still have some. My favorite is two swans making a heart. What is one of your favorites?

  7. Thanks for your nice comments on my blog! I stopped by today to visit and enjoyed seeing how many collections of stamps you have from all over the world! I only wish I had a collection like that! Stamps are such pretty little pieces of art!
