I am back trying to figure out how to organize my Machins with the ultimate goal of mounting them on pages. The system has to allow adding varieties without redoing a lot of pages. For now, I use Vario pages to organize a prototype layout.

1) checked watermarks on early Hungarian stamps... now I just need to figure out color differences on 6 filler turul/crown of Saint Stephen stamps

2) finally started cutting mounts for QE2 British pre-decimal commemoratives (avoided this project for too long)

I spent the weekend setting up my stamp room! I was "force retired" due to Covid so I decided to turn my home office into a hobby room: 85% stamps, 10% computers, 5% cat. Sorting everything out I came across material I forgot about: bulk purchases from a while ago, stamps that will keep me in postage forever, and, most interesting, two homemade albums for Germany made by my father in the thirties. I think I will try to complete them.

It looks like it is going to be a long winter, but now I am all set!

Shermae - yes, a teen feline that has some minor vision/health issues that is best kept from the rest of the menagerie. Well behaved but the collection is kept off the floor.

I'm cataloging a packet of Brazil stamps (1940s/1950s era) I received recently. Some Brazil watermarks are all over the place: upright, inverted, reversed, sideways, etc. Of eight possible orientations, I have identified 5 so far.

Mounted some stamps - some 1945 Czechoslovakia, some late 1960s Italy including the Soldier at the Piave (a personal favorite), and a new favorite - the 1965 Romero de Torres paintings from Spain.

Moved more Algerian stamps from a Scott International to Vario pages.

Tired of looking at all the empty international pages and my age and thinking I'll never get it done.

Cataloged several hundred Japan stamps, mostly prefecture issues. Now, on to inventory and incorporation into the collection.

The three "I"s: Identification, Inventory, Incorporation.

Robert I did the same a couple of weeks ago. I purchase a large Japanese collection that I have now catalogued. I am almost done placing the ones I am missing in my collection. Let me know if you would like me to through and perhaps help you fill some of your holes.

I have been collecting Denmark for about 5 years. When I first started the collection, I decided on Steiner layouts, and printing on 65 lb Southworth linen stock. I found some really nice binders at I think it was Jo Ann's Crafts, which I liked very much. They're made by a company called We R Memory Keepers, and apparently are very popular in the crafters' field for scrapbooking. They're leatherette covered, come in a wide variety of colors, and come in both standard 8 1/2 X 11 and 12 X 12 format. I bought two of the larger format, in dark blue, mainly because that was all the store had at the time, but they are very elegant looking. As my collection has grown, however, the two volumes no longer hold the collection and I decided to buy two more binders, and I decided to move the bulk of the collection to a red one and a white one, to represent the colors of the Danish flag, and I found a craft company on line where I could order them and not have to worry if Jo Ann's has them or not. They take up a bit more room on the shelf, both in height and in depth, but they do look nice.

I have a few of the albums. They have heavy covers and will sit on shelf upright.

Over the long weekend, added used Washington-Franklin coils (I found it's tougher to find quality, used W-F coils than mint), used Nashville and Charleston provisionals and a US 2 with a Louisville postmark to the collection. Would this be an appropriate place to add pics of some of those items?

It's past midnight, cannot sleep, reading SCF.
I have a visitor, possibly "Mickey Mouse"
He/she must be hungry, I can hear chomping on something that sounds like plastic.

Been a few years since my last visit,
time to buy the chunky peanut paste, tomorrow.
and set the "humane" mouse trap.
