Georgia, USA and The Netherlands

I have two postcards for today's update. The cards are from Savannah, Georgia , USA and The Netherlands. Gayle sent the card from Georgia, through Postcrossing. com . It shows a number of historic homes in Savannah., a city which dates back to 1733. The city attracts millions of visitors, who enjoy the city's architecture and historic buildings. The house in the top left is the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts of The U.S.A. The top right shows Chestnut House , now a bed & breakfast. Gayle used 3 definitives from 2008 on this card. They are Flag at Dawn , Flag at Midday and Flag at Dusk. Missing is Flag at Night . All in all there are 5 different issues of these 4 stamps. They have different die cuts, and formats- water activated or self adhesive and come with square and round corners. As a collector who actually likes and collects the many different types and issues of definitives, I look forward to hopefully having them all in my collection, even though they look alike.- four face different but a total of twenty different stamps. Thanks Gayle.
The second card is from Monique , also a Postcrosser, who lives in Ysselstein, Netherlands. The card shows a windmill, I would never have guessed, that is in the town of Ysselstein, which is in the middle of The Netherlands. Monique used 4 stamps , including a definitive from 2002 and 3 Christmas stamps from 2007. They are part of an issue of 10 different designs. Thanks Monique.

That is my update for today. More hopefully tomorrow.
