This is a blog of my personal stamps and covers collection. I am an avid collector of postage stamps, miniature sheets, FDCs and covers addressed to me from across the world, an accumulator and hoarder of stamps. It is my attempt here to show you all of my collection in the posts that I'll add and update regularly. I hope to add more to the collection in the process, interact with you other collectors out there and share thoughts and information about anything and everything related.

Cover - Russia
I received this cover just yesterday. Vladimir sent me this one from Russia. While the stamps on the cover are intact, I had to make do with only some of the stamps from the exchange return stamps he sent in the cover. Reason - The cover probably got wet and soiled in transit & all the stamps and sheets sent were stuck to each other. I managed to save most of them after soaking them. It still feels bad to have lost what I could have had if some basic precautionary steps had been taken while sending the stamps.
Anyway thank you for the stamps and the send, Vladimir.
