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.

Odd Shaped Sheet - South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands
This one is by far my favourite. A set of four stamps along with this minisheet was issued in 2008 depicting the chinstrap penguins, an easily identified species of the islands. The sheet is large and measures 140 x 198 mm. This is my only set of stamps or a sheet of this island territory. The territory previously had been governed as part of the Falkland Islands Dependencies. Under the new constitution, effective 3 October 1985, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands ceased to be dependencies of Falkland Islands.
