I don't, but I would like to...
... have one cover or postcard with post mark from each post office from Faroe Islands.
They are not so many, but without you will not be possible.
I'm waiting your feedback... and of course I will support the cost deliveries or I'll send you back some nice cover with stamps from Portugal.

Please e-mail me for details...

Franking Labels 2011

On 28 September 2011 four new franking labels have been issued. This is the fourth time Faroese franking labels are being issued. 

The motifs on this year's franking labels is an old rhyme, "Kú mín í garði" (My cow in the alley) and they are designed by the Faroese artist, Janus Guttesen.

The oldest nursery rhymes we know are probably poems or songs for children which were recited or sung to very simple tunes. In the Faroese dictionary we can see that these were “old rhymes passed on by oral tradition, which were sung repeatedly for children.”
My cow in the alley
My cow in the alley,
My mare in the valley,
My steed on the cliff,
My hen on the ladder.
“Bah, bah, bah,”
Says my ewe in the shed,
“I need some grass to chew on.”
(Translation: Anker Eli Petersen)
