The Sky is the Limit!


I'M DONE!  Scanning and listing my USA stamp sheets on eBay, that is!
Now all that's left is the auctions ending and getting mailed.


I FEEL LIKE I COULD FLY...TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!

(Am I hyper or what?!)

(This is a scan, with added border, not a photo.)

Ginnie Hart: While I was working on them, Namaki, I just had to show them. Every sheet reminded me of a different blogger. smile Merci.

Hope you have many sales
Ginnie Hart: They're all selling, Vintage, and that's the good news. I only had to relist one little souvenir sheet that didn't sell the first time around. I've been very lucky. Thanks.

pretty cool collection you have there.. good luck on the bidding process.. grin
Ginnie Hart: So far so good, Rian. I have nothing to complain about...except the eBay and PayPal fees!! My S&H doesn't always cover them. sad

Looks great.

You have shown me something of the artistry of the postage stamp, Ginnie.

Hopefully your auction outcomes will be positive.
Ginnie Hart: As I've gone through all these sheets, Ray, I've been awed at how beautiful and creative so many of our sheets are. No wonder people collect them! grin
What took you so long, Ginie....... ha ha
Ginnie Hart: I can just imagine how long it would have taken if I had slowed down, Paul. smile

wink Hyper, who...you....nooooo, only two persons know what kind of work you put into the scanning and listing, now you can fly....fly with the wind en kan je trots zijn op het resultaat.
This a wonderful set of stamps, great border to complete it.
Ginnie Hart: It does feel good to relax a bit again, for sure! Yes, you know! You were so supportive en dat weten wij. Ontzettend bedankt, mijn vriend!
No seriously I have a load of Stanley Gibbons Catalogues for sale on Amazon in aid of my Lions Club! tongue
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Bill, I also have sold many of my books on Amazon, so hopefully you'll do well!
An interesting sheet of stamps!
I'll keep my fingers crossed for a good sale.
Ginnie Hart: They've all been doing well, Wim, and even at Face Value, I'm at least getting back what I paid for them. Ontzettend bedankt.

Oh, Ginnie, a wonderful series- and beautiful stamps- if I would collect stamps now, I would be interested in these ones because I love the Greek myths and the constellations themselves (Sternbilder-starimages as we say, and the Orion I always recognize): Orion-Lion-lyra-particualrly Pegasus - in general a very good compagny of friends who could help you in many situations- and I know where Pegasus should carry you to -over the ocean to...!

"Pegasus, in Greek mythology, winged horse that carries the thunderbolt of Zeus. He sprang full-grown from the neck of the dying Gorgon Medusa. With a slash of his hoof, he created the Hippocrene, a sacred spring of the Muses on Mt. Helicon. Hence, he has often been associated with the arts, especially poetry. Pegasus was captured by Bellerophon, who rode him through many adventures."
Ginnie Hart: You would make a great stamp collector, Philine!!! You would really get into them even more seriously than I have. I love it!

This is a very striking set - I know I would have trouble parting with them. Hope they get a good price!
Ginnie Hart: i still am amazed that the parting has not been a problem whatsoever for me, Mike. If anything, I say Thank You every day for the fact I collected them in the first place, just so I could sell them now when I need the revenue. The Universe knew!

lovely looking stamps Ginnie - I spy my birth sign in there! The border matches the colours really well. Hope you get a good price.

Ginnie Hart: As I told Wim, if I only get the starting price of FV, I'll be getting at least what I paid for them! The thing is, the Post Office doesn't sell past issues any more, so the only way you can get them is through the secondary market, like eBay. And most people know you have to pay more than FV to get them. Thanks, Ingrid.
Interesting to see these stamps I do't normally take an notice.
Ginnie Hart: Once you collect them, Chad, you really pay attention. But I have to admit that I had forgotten about most of them. It was very nice to see them again.
My..you have been busy Ginnie. So now you can relax a little. A wonderful job done on the stamps.
Ginnie Hart: Trust me, Ron...I HAVE started to relax a bit again. Thank you!
funny series
Ginnie Hart: One you probably haven't seen before or ever again, Chantal. grin

This set is lovely as well as educational with the stars plotted. Job well done so you have every reason to be hyper now it's finished. Fingers crossed for the sale of the house.
Ginnie Hart: The house is now on my radar screen, Aussie, for sure. I have a couple smaller projects to do but they'll get done quickly. So YES, now my energy will soon be elsewhere...on the things that really count. smile Thanks for your good support. It means the world to us.
Stamps can be very beautiful - and you sure have some. Looking at this make me wanna learn where I can find these in the sky.....
Ginnie Hart: That's the educational part of stamps, Aksel, when they make us want to learn more. I have really been appreciative and proud of the creativity behind all our USA stamps.

How does it feel to let something go when you have spent that much time on it, with it? We used to say it is part of growing up, maybe growing up has nothing to do with age, but more to do wth phases.
Ginnie Hart: It definitely must be a phase/passage, Louis, because it feels like the collection was specifically for this time, to give the revenue I need. I have said Thank You to the Universe every day. I still marvel at how something so "innocent" years ago was put into place for such a time as this.
Great sheet of stamps Ginnie, you must really hate parting with these. I think the saying "as needs must" probably applies at the moment doesn't it.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Brian, it has not been a painful parting at all...probably because I am seeing it as a fortuitous source of income for me right now. I am a very happy camper. smile

i'm intrigued to see which sheets remindsed you of which blogger...we should be told!
Ginnie Hart: If only I had the time...and people would not think of me cheating on SC (since these are not photos!). It would be great fun to show them off with particular people in mind...even you, David. smile
I know how you feel by getting rid of all these things Ginnie. I have done it so many times!
Ginnie Hart: It needed to be done eventually, Richard. Better me than my kids!

Way to go, Ginnie! Sounds like you've done outstandingly well on the profits-front - and well deserved for doing all the actual collecting! (I'm terrible on that score, collecting that is; like Bill Bailey I can only count to about 8, and then I need a sandwich ;-))
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, Ian. I'll have to remember that line. grin

No wonder they say astronomers are dreamers, they were really "stretching" it in my opinion. There's no way i would've made any connections to what they suggested! smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! i wonder what they would say about the things WE concoct up today, Ti. grin

Congratulations on finishing this project! I think this was the perfect ending - shooting for the sky!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Martie, I have one more which will be the real ending as a tribute to all us photographers. smile
