Heebee Post #1109 - SeaShelly (Rachel) - Lelystad - The Netherlands

 My gracious sakes! "Souvenirstamps for Test Tower". If you have never had a set of stamps that were were about and dedicated specifically for you, you cannot know the sense of exultation that accompanies the little treasure. Like a gentle massage of fortune for the ego. Folks, I am smiling ear to ear over this honor. This sort of thing does not happen often and so, if you don't mind my reveling in the glory of it for a moment......
The close up of this fine artistamp didn't come out as nicely as I would have preferred (someday a new scanner). Anyway, it is of a special Test Tower/XPF stamping and a commemorative XPF stamp. That sure was a fun day!

 "The Sea is an adventure and so is Mail sent by it"....Seashelly sends in another fascinating set of artistamps, this time "Mail by Paquebot" or "Mail by Packet Boat". An interestingly romantic notion.

A little closer examination to show off her beautiful philtelic prowess. Great configuration.

Another joyously busy commemorative for the XPF festival in San Francisco.

I had to react immediately to the enthusiastic instructions found on the back of this hefty envelope
The brilliant address side of the fancifully decorated jewel of an envelope tells stories with it's splendid imagery. A wonderful specimen of the genre to be yanking out of your mail box indeed! Like a therapuetic soothing balm for the mind and soul....... Thanks Rachel - I'll be catching up to you in the very near postal future. Of course - this made my day!
