N is for Netherlands

Heleen has sent me some amazing stamps issued by PostNL over the years. Most of the stamps she has sent me have been shown on my blog as part of her wonderful envelopes,  but a few escaped the full treatment, so here they are.

Here is one showing a pair of hares from my favorite December Stamps set, plus one featuring a stray cat. Bob, if you are looking for a connection to last week's letter M, the photo was taken on Morocco.





And here is one showing a chicken, with some great bonus details in the selvage.


For more stamps with an N connection, head over to Sunday Stamps.

  5. Que de jolis timbres ! jolie poulette et mignon petit chat,les petits lapins de noël sont craquants aussi !
    Cette année en France les timbres des fête de fin d'année ressembleront à ceux de l'an passé ,c'est dommage !
