In this case, Heleen sent me a few postcards of birds that I like. She included an extra bird that I like very much, and wasn't expecting, a common or Eurasian Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis).
And she sent it in an envelope that used stamps from 2009 that I think are amazing (Heleen - I get the feeling that you have quite a stash of stamps!). The translation of 'Laat kinder leren' is 'Let children learn'.
I love how Heleen turned some of the letters of my address into the little creatures from the stamps.
And even better, it includes my favorite of the bunch - the first one, which is 'Trying is always good'.
Here is a bit more information about these cool stamps. Thanks to Violet for the information.
There's also a great animated video about this set.
Do you have a favorite bird?
