Postcard #58

Postcard #58 from Kazakhstan.
Date: 31.08.16
Depicts: "Greetings from... Kazakhstan", unofficial.
From: got it from Yulia.

This is private swap with a postcrosser Yulia from Kazakhstan. I sent her a postcard first through the website, but when she got my postcard she offered to send me something from her side too, which was very nice, so I agreed. Thanks to her my collection of "Greetings from" grew by this one amazing postcard with facsts about Kazakhstan :)
Stamps: "Карлыгаштын куйрыгы неге айыр?" (Why does swallow have horned tail?), Kazakh children cartoons series, Kazakhstan, 1994; "Козы мен Косаяк жаксылыкты калай iздеди" (How lamb and jerboa searched for happiness), Kazakh children cartoons series, Kazakhstan, 1994; "Tulipa behmiana Regel", Flowers of Kazakhstan series, Kazakstan, 2013; "Tulipa ostrowskiana Regel", Flowers of Kazakhstan series, Kazakstan, 2013.

A postcrosser is orginally from Belarus but lives in Lithuania. So the ID is Lithuanian but the stamp is Belorussian because it was sent from Minsk.

Postcard #56

Postcard #56 from Austria.

Date: 29.08.16
Depicts: a painting of Christian Eriksen Skredsvig (1854-1924) "The Princess and Half the Kingdom".
From: got from a postcrosser Helga.

My 35th postcard from project.
Stamps: "Vienna Parlament", Austria, 2015; "See", Personal Stamps service, Austria, n/d.
I spent a huge amount of time searching for the second stamp on the net to find out the year of issue, series and etc and still couldn't find it. BUT I came across a very unusual and super cool service which is probably typical for Austrian society only - they can make THEIR OWN stamps with pictures they wish to use! I think this is totally amazing and creative. So as I understood right Helga used her personal stamp (to the right). Thanks to her I have something pretty unique :)
