Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Macro Monday Postage Stamps from Australia



The package I received from Kim a couple of weeks ago had a series of very colorful postage stamps on it, and I thought they would make a great Macro Monday subject.

I collect postage stamps too. Well, at one time I did, but now I just fill in some of the old missing pieces from time to time. I have even used the postage stamp for political satire, as I have created my own commemorative stamps that the USPS wouldn't do. : )

But, the thing I find so interesting about your shots of stamps today is the movement the pictures create, at least for my eyes I feel movement and what is a postage stamp to do if not complete the process of movement of an item from one place to the next.

Goodness! It cost her more to send the package than it did to make the cups! (or was that the ornament?) It's just sad how much it costs to ship things overseas... I love those stamps though! I collect them too!

Dutchbaby said...

They do indeed make for a great Macro Monday! I love your perspective!

Johnny Nutcase said...
