CROATIA - europa 2010

I love the cover which was sent by pierresurleciel last week!
We didn't hear from each other more than a year now - so sad. But at least we found us again!
She sent me this beautiful and RARE stamps on a normal Cover.

The stamps shows a generic picture about a book and some fairies. Quite nice i think :)

Cover was sent on 06.10.2010

Date of Issue: 06.05.2010
Author’s idea of a children book: open book with characters from the children’s stories coming out.

SWITZERLAND - cept 1959

It is the Year of Birth from my father. 1959. The Swiss Issue date was on the 22nd June. The Date of Birth from my father is the 19th of June.
He collected Stamps since he was a young boy - mainly Austrian Stamps cause my former family is from Klagenfurt, located in the south part - nearby the Slovenian boarder.  Nowadays he's just buying the First Day issues. Blocks of 4, with the First Day cancellations on it.
Well back to my Europa Collection which was founded by him ;)

The FDC wasn't posted which is a blame - i know they don't have the same value (for me, personally). But i have at least one - that counts, or?
