Dogs on stamps - not Cyprus

Hey!

Look what I got today..... One of my friends came to give me a stamp they had produced of their own dog "Peach" the Chihuahua on a Finnish personal stamp.

She's a cutie pie of a dog and full of character.



Have you got any photos of dogs on stamps you would like to share with me?

This is a self-adhesive postage stamp from Finland.

The last stamp issues of 2012 for Cyprus

Well it's hard to believe that winter seems to have arrived quite quickly in Cyprus since Friday and those balmy afternoons on the beach with a dip in the sea to cool off will soon be long lost memories.

Only last Sunday 4th November 2012 we were sitting down at Curium Beach having lunch (a takeaway from Sigma Bakery in Zakaki, Limassol) and swimming in the sea. Wednesday turned overcast and it's gone steadily downhill from there...

Looks like these 2 photos from that weekend will be my lasting summer memories of 2012 then!



So, with the end of summer zipped by that can only mean we're getting ready for the last Cyprus stamp issues of 2012....

------------------------- 

Wednesday 14 November 2012 will see two new issues. One is of course fully expected, after all it wouldn't be the end of the stamp year without a Christmas stamp or two now would it?

These are they:


This year's series dedicated to Christmas comprises of a commemorative sheet (feuilee) and two stamps with the same number of icons depicting the Virgin and Child. These icons are from the occupied areas of Cyprus and are currently being exhibited at the Byzantine Museum of the of Archbishop Makarios III Foundation.


The set will comprise of 2 single stamps in denominations of €0,22 and €0,51 plus a Souvenir Sheet of €0,68 - also on official post office first day covers. Maximum cards are usually issued for the Christmas stamp issues only.

-------------------------

Now if you are familiar with Cyprus and also a follower of all things "sporty" you may be aware that the recent 2012 London Olympic Games bestowed one of our Cypriot brethren with a silver medal.

With this in mind, the Cyprus post office have issued an additional stamp to be released on the same date as the Christmas stamps to honour Pavlos Kontides (a Limassol boy) for his achievement in the Laser sailing category.


There will be a single stamp of €0,34 denomination and it can be purchased as is or in sheets of 8 stamps and also on first day cover.

The "cancel mark" for this issue is depicted below.
The above stamps are now available on our website for advance purchase and subject to your online order and payment being received by midnight on Monday 12 November 2012, they can be dispatched to you on the very first day of issue (Wednesday 14 November).

To purchase or to find out more about this final issue of Cyprus stamps for 2012, please follow this link to the NEW Stamp Issue category or feel free to browse our many different categories on Cyprus Stamps website.

Please note: the above images are currently taken from the post office information leaflet. All images used on our website are actual scans of the stamps and covers we have for sale and the same will apply for the 14 November 2012 Cyprus stamp issues on or after the first day of their release.
