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.

Thailand - Fan Shaped Sheet
On the occasion of the Thailand Heritage Conservation Day in 2007, Thai Post issued this set of stamps and a sheet that was cut around in the shape of a fan depicting ceremonial fans.
Ecclesiastical Ceremonial fans or Monastic Fans are fans used by Buddhist monks when they are invited to perform religious ceremonies. The four designs of the monastic fans on the stamps are the award winning stamp paintings from the 2005 International Letter Writing Week postage competition, under the theme "Ecclesiastical Ceremonial Fans".
Here's a closer look at the stamps.
