Fall – Winter 2022

Hello my Dears!
My goal for the week was to write a blog summarizing the past months and the autumn-winter fairs.
The last time I wrote a post was in June.
Next month, I would also like to write a newsletter or a blog so that the many experiences that happen to me and do not pile up.
Maybe its all better for us because I don’t have to write a novel 🙂
I save time for myself and for you too 🙂

Who’s up with procrastination?
Did you think that I was the Queen of procrastination? 🙂 A friend of mine told me this week that we procrastinate because
we can’t decide which task to start with, which exists in a huge bubble in our head, so we need to write it down, as a goal,
as a daily task and break it down into parts.

I have to give her credit.

Blogging was such a bubble for me. My God, I wrote a blog half a year ago. It will be enough this time to write about the present and a short summary of the fairs.
I divided the content of the newsletter over two days, so it took much less time.
I am proud of myself 🙂 I wrote the newsletter instead 🙂
It’s okay, I had to write that too.


Hello again!

First of all, I would like to say THANK YOU to my existing and future customers who trusted me to create their unique stamp art pictures. 2 of them traveled abroad. One to Finland (Papillion dog) and one to Italy (portrait of Queen Elizabeth II) and both arrived safely. The other 3 remained in Hungary (Portrait of the dachshund, the little mermaid and Her Majesty on a pink background.)
I can’t show you the last one yet, because a very lucky lady will receive this as a birthday present in December. )


PS: You can place your individual order until November 27. You can order without frame as well.
I post worldwide (without frame)



New products are on the way…

…and they are also very colorful, like my personality 🙂
I can’t live without colors. The more, the better 🙂
I started painting with iridescent watercolors, I even tried to make them myself (so far with no luck). I bought everything: pigment powder, gum arabic, glycerin, mica powder, painter’s knives…only I didn’t have the recipe…that’s why it didn’t work the first time. Maybe next time 🙂

In my hands, not only stamps, but also old, antique, antique-effect frames and mirrors are reborn.
Let me show you my first attempt.
I asked my followers on IG and FB who would have liked the blue frame better:
For Marie-Antoinette or Cinderella?
Cinderella won 🙂
I will keep this, but the rest will be available at the fairs and hopefully in my webshop next year.

In the image below you can see how my first iridescent watercolor painting turned out with the addition of some die cut postage stamps.

Spring / Summer 2022

Where I was during April/May/June and where will I be at the rest of the summer…

Dear fans!

Its been a long time since I have written to all of you…
Now I am going to summarize up the last events I have attended.
Trying to keep it short 🙂

For Bottlepost the market season started in April 2022.
I have attended a 3 days long fair in the  Botanical Garden of Buda, it was the Tavaszkert Ornamental Trade Fair.

My table was in the triangle of a cash machine ( by the 2nd day it has been plundered), a bin and men’s toilet 😀

I was not pleased at first, but at the end I did not mind.

Probably my stand was the most visited 😀

I have sold 4 pictures and I was asked to make a custom order of a Corgi 🙂

The customer had to wait exactly 2 months to her order as the postage  stamps I have ordered from overseas did not arrive.

Still not,but I had to re order from other Vendors within Europe.

While I was on holiday in mid June the re-ordered stamps landed in my post box, so the next day I could start the work.

All together the Corgi was made in 6-8 hours. Delivery date will be on the 28th June.

In May I have attended 2 fairs: Kiskertpiac and Szimpla kert

At Kiskertpiac 3 of my pictures have found their new home in Miami, Florida

A German-Hungarian couple were also visited the fair.

The gentleman’s mom was Hungarian and were born in Dob street (2 streets away from Ankert köz).

They were looking for a present to his 96 yrs old mom and when they saw the heart shaped stamp art ( see above), they knew that it will be the perfect gift 🙂

His mom loves everything with heart shape. Like I do 🙂


One of my decorated glass, an original Bagarol was also travelled to U.S.A.

Bagarol was originally a shoe polish. See below picture.


In Szimpla kert I had only French customers 🙂

One of them was called as I am : Corinne in French. Corinne came from Normandy with her family for 5 days and their first trip was headed to Szimpla Kert 🙂

I am always happy to meet with other women called Korinna or Corinne 😀

So , Corinne fell in love with the little mermaid and her husband bought it to her as a present.

How sweet, isn’t it ?



In June I was attending a 2 days long Lifestlye Expo and Mineral Fair at Lurdy-ház (11-12th June)

It was my 15th market , since I have started in 2020

That weekend  slightly changed my life in a positive way 🙂

Most of my customers were children and I am very grateful for them 🙂

I got so many new impulses, smells, beautiful moments, I have found my lost soul within those wonderful people I have met during those 2 days.

I could connected to them immediately.

The passion came back to my life and my spiritual store is recharged 🙂




The highlight of the market was a custom request from a Vegan Indian Restaurant. The only request was to create it from 100 % Indian postage stamp. What it will be, you will see in one of my future post in July…

Also a long time no see friend also showed up ,which was unexpected and since then we have reunited 🙂

Grateful for your visit, Bea 🙂

November shows

Dear Bottlepost fans!

Hope all of you are well and the pictures bought from me are in their final place 🙂 unless it will be a Xmas present

As some of you may know I have attended 2 markets in November.

One of them was on the 20th Nov in Szimpla Kert and the other was on the 28th Nov at Anker market organised by Kiskert piac.

Szimpla Kert 20.11.2021

Before the markets are starting the sellers are going there 1 hour in advance to get all things done by the time the first customers are arriving.

Usually, some helpers are there setting up the tables for you…this time they probably overslept and we had to set up the tables for ourselves. The organiser, Juli was there and helped us.

When I arrived at Szimpla Kert, my favourite spot was already taken, so I had to choose another one.

The place I have taken, seemed good, until the point that a bird pooped on my table, then on my pictures, table again… at least 7 times they pooped above me! Hahaha!!  😀

That’s called luck, isn’t it?

I have to say I had luck.

My first customer was a french girl who is living in Budapest. Then I had visitors from the North of Spain, from Bilbao who became my customers as well 🙂 They bought one of my favourite pictures, the Teapot.

When I got to know that Maria and her husband are from Bilbao I was super happy, as I have been there with my mom about 10 years ago. When I got off the bus in the city centre of Bilbao I thought for a moment that I am at Andrassy avenue in Budapest. Immediately felt at home. 🙂

A Hungarian lady, Éva contacted me via FB after I came home from Szimpla Kert.
She has booked one of my mini framed pictures and picked it up personally at kiskert piac on the 28th of Nov.

Kiskert Piac 28.11.2021

The experience is still fresh as the fair was 2 days ago.

This time I was inside Madhouse in Anker köz, which I did not regret due to the cold and rainy weather outside.

The table I had was the tiniest ever, but I had a lot of space behind me and also put a part of my work on a chair next to my table.

Thank you all who come to kiskert piac, stopped by and supported my small business.

You can meet with me twice in December.

5th and 12th December, same place and the same time. Madhouse, Anker köz, between 10-16

My pictures will be attending a pop-up designer market at the Zani store, in Szerb utca 17.

Pictures will be randomly selected, so if you want to have one of my pictures as a present for Xmas, make sure you book it with me and I bring it to kiskert piac. Otherwise, they will be available in the Zani store.

In November I got my first overseas custom order from Ireland. 🙂

I was asked to design a birthday greeting card based on Asuka Langley Soryu for a girl who will turn 13 years old in December. The delivery arrived at the correct address and can’t wait that the birthday girl will see her present made by me 🙂

See the result below:


Hope to see you in December!
















Szimpla Kert Ruin Pub 16.10.2021

Hello everyone!

The Simple Garden (Szimpla Kert) Ruin Pub does not need to be presented to anyone, although on October 16 2021 I met Hungarian citizens who had never been there before.

One really liked the place, the other didn’t know where to put it. And from the sight of the toilet, he was completely horrified.

While living in District 7 (7 years in total) I often turned up here. I lived a few streets away.

The last time I was here was on September 5, 2020, at a designer fair, which unfortunately was buzzing with emptiness. We were heavily in the 3rd wave of Covid and thanks to that there were no tourists.

More than a  year has passed since then, half the world has vaccinated itself (me too) and I came back to the Simple Garden for another designer fair, which was the complete opposite of what it was a year ago. It was full of foreigners (Spaniards, Ukrainians, Americans, Colombians…)

It was completely natural to be there… as if nothing has happened…

I had no expectations of the fair, but I would not have dared to think in my dreams that there would be so many people and 98% were tourist.

I chose the best place for my table where I was sure visitors would leave at least twice in front of my table.

Manika Design ( also set up her table in front of mine, bringing beautiful recycled earrings and necklaces to the fair.

I have a weakness, namely the earrings. I buy earrings at almost every fair 🙂

I bought it that day too. Look! Mancika’s earring has a classy cheerful style.

Mancika is the Lady in the Red Hat. Once at a carnival party, I had to dress up as a painting. Nothing else was at home but a red hat and a blonde wig. I searched the net to see if there was any painting with a red hat at all… and it was!

I was the lady in the red hat from an unknown painter.

Mancika has been organizing a Vintage Mode Grand Boudoir on the 30th of October (, which unfortunately I was unable to attend due to illness, but my stamp art pictures did.
The opportunity also came at the last minute, which I have taken. Fortunately, the organization went smoothly and quickly.You can view the pictures taken there on the FB ( or IG @bottlepost_org_

Et voilá my table looked like this at the designer fair:

I am pleased to inform you that Frida Kahlo and the American Statue of Liberty have found their new home.

Frida Kahlo traveled to France. A French woman bought it for her daughter. This is already my 3rd picture, which can be found in France.

The American Statue of Liberty flew to Colombia 🙂 My first picture ended up in South America.

I like to know where my stamp art pictures are, who bought them and where their new home will be. Well, I’m not thinking of a street or house number, but countries and cities 🙂

The Miki mouse stamp sheet was bought by a Hungarian couple 🙂 Which I was also happy about 🙂

My next fairs are scheduled for the 20th and the 28th of November, 2021.
20th November: Szimpla Kert 12-18
28th November: Kiskert Piac 10-16

I hope you can come!



Summer of 2021

My dear Followers and Customers!

More than a year has passed since my last post, but what a year it was !! Bad and good things have happened to me, but let’s focus more on the good things and within that this summer.

The market season was opened by Kiskert Piac ( Little garden Market) on May 30, 2021, on the Seagull Promenade at Mom Kult. This fair was pretty successful.

Many people stopped at my booth, they were interested in my stamp art pictures, we talked a lot and some of them came back… The first picture I have sold was the map of Italy that I have made out of 100% used Italian postage stamps.

Another location for Kiskert Piac has been Anker Avenue, next to Madhouse in the 6th district.

In the summer I have found a new location, namely the Agárdi Almárium in Gárdony next to Lake Velence, which is about 50 km away from Budapest. Agardi Almarium is a Producers’s Market, Bistro, Culture Park, and a Distillery at the same time.
All the markets I have attended during summer, I had the biggest table there 🙂

See below:

This producer market has stolen my heart. It is a very family-friendly place with live music, champagne, breakfast, live theatre for kids and last but not least great people. The organizer, Kriszti Virág, is a man of all hearts, who was very positive about my products after our first letter exchange 🙂

Here I met Ildiko right at the first fair, whom I invited to my booth and after she came over, immediately fell in love with the Hand of Fatima and all my other stamp creations.
After talking with her for a long time, I learned that her great love was Ecuador because she has worked there as a missionary in one of the miserable colonies 20 years ago. She told me a lot about her experiences in Ecuador and the Galapagos islands.

We agreed that if I could find Ecuadorian stamps, I would make her the Map of Ecuador.

None of us seriously thought I was going to find Ecuadorian stamps within a short time…

I ordered them at the end of July and in 2 weeks, just on 13th August, which was a Friday, it arrived by post. There has never been a Friday 13 so lucky day in my life. As soon as I received the envelope, I opened it and saw that one of the stamps was stamped with 1889-1890 !! I was holding a 126-year-old stamp in my hand! I thought I was fainting. From whom I bought the stamps, I asked her where she bought them and she replied that she got them at an auction. It belonged to an old man who had a collection of four garage stamps …

I immediately called Ildiko to tell her the good news … she was completely fainting too. I told her I wouldn’t have time to start the map in August, but it would be ready in the first week of September. That’s how it happened, but we still had to wait for the handover. First, she got sick, then I did.

Unfortunately, I was not present at the handover because I handed over the wrapped picture to her parents, later that day Ildikó called me crying that it was prettier than she thought and thanked me for putting the island of Galapagos separately because Ecuador is an integral part of Ecuador and is visible on every map. The color of the stamps was the same as the colors of the Ecuadorian flag (yellow, blue, red) and I compiled the map with this in mind.

Ildikó gave me free hand in everything. Here is the result. The picture is now next to an Ecuadorian weaver in her bedroom. Every morning she wakes up, she returns to her memories to where she was once very happy. I am glad to be a part of her happiness.

I also traveled to Ecuador a bit in my thoughts 🙂


3 fairs were planned in September, but unfortunately, I could attend only the last one.

I had sinusitis in the first 2 weeks of September … no matter how much I wanted to go to fairs, I couldn’t because I knew if I didn’t rest, it could last longer, risking my health.

On the last Sunday of September, there was also a designer fair during Anker Avenue , where I arrived with a new collection.

I combined the stamps with the collage technique, which took me to a new dimension. In addition to the collage, this year I will also decorate my pictures with metal leafs and colored foils, which will give my works a special atmosphere.

Noémi, my jewelry designer friend also visited me 🙂

Thank you for reading my summer stories.

My next fair will be in the Szimpla Kert on 20th November, 2021 from 12-18.

I hope to see you there.

Pop-up market in our courtyard 09.10.2020

Dear Everybody!

I have been involved in 2 other markets since August after my first very poorly managed one.

I was present in the Szimpla Kert organised by  SimpleFashion and Sofitel Marketplace organised by Kiskert Piac.

Although the last 2 did well, we decided to try the pop-up market in the front yard of our house.

We could not have made a better decision.

Luckily the weather was good too, we had our home fair on one of the last days of Indian summer.

People came to us that I would not have met at all at the organized markets.

I didn’t have so many orders in any of the organized markets like this one.

My latest products includes  Christmas greeting cards made from stamps, which has had unbroken success ever since.

They took all of them right away. I got a lot of orders to make Christmas cards.

I like to make not only Christmas, but any other motif, be it a birthday, name day, wedding anniversary …

I constantly upload my completed works

here: FB: and the

and here : IG to my site


I also take individual orders for pictures  with or without a frame. For details pls contact me on any of the platforms ( FB/IG/Email)

My most recent order is a framed panda teddy bear for a  little girl who is under 1 year old. I can’t wait for all the black and white stamp. 🙂

It will be one of her Xmas presents. 🙂

In addition to the pictures and greeting cards, I was waiting for the visitors with a lot of different postcards.


Summa summarum, the fair went well and if the weather allows, there will be more to continue.



My first market in Gozsdu

Dear customers!

I am 4 days after my first market which took place in Gozsdu  udvar on the 1st August 2020 in Budapest.

Many of you does not know what Gozsdu is.

Gozsdu udvar is actually a courtyard which is between Király and Dob street. Designers, artisans, antique and retro vendors are selling their own crafts. A market with a unique atmosphere in the heart of Budapest every weekend. Combined with the many restaurants in the Gozsdu courtyard, it is a great place to relax and have fun.

I used to live in the 7th district. Dob street is in the 7th and Kiraly street is in the 6th district. I used to come here frequently many many yrs ago and in my mind Gozsdu was something different. Not a flea market as it is now. Maybe I was  “blind” and it was always like this.

It has several courts and we were located in the 5th courtyard, next to a restaurant which was closed and thanks to this we could use an extra 2 meters for the installation beside the 2 meter long table.

Most of the people ( I was amazed that there were many foreigners) were in the first 3-4 courtyards and the rest just passing through.

(1 week before my first market we visited Gozsdu to see what to expect. I was a kind of disappointed… only 3-4 sellers were there, maybe because of the bad weather…)

It was one thing that people passed through, we were counting with it as well. What we did not count with were those little bugs which were coming out from the closed restaurant. Because of this we did not dare to put down my back pack which I brought the food in .

Because of this feeling what if we will bring home them , did not give us peace.

The morning we left home to Gozsdu I told my husband, that I will be happy if we sell 1 thing from our products. Well, we sold 1 thing 🙂

The waiting itself was very tiring. By the end of the market I head a huge headache and it lasted for 3 days 🙁

I’d like to mention that my husband was a huge support and help before, during and after the market. 🙂

He is my handyman 🙂 Thank you for being there for me!

He was creating a “little car” where we could put all the framed and unframed pictures, paper bags, washi tapes, stampels, stickers… and bring to the scene as you could not go in the courtyard by car. We were lucky to find a parking lot nearby.

His work are the stampels  as well ( featured image on the top) what you could try at our table and you will be able to try in the future as well.

 Lesson was learned.

  1. Check the place before you even apply for. Even if you know it or were there before.
  2. Check one more time 🙂 because what you did not see at first, you will see second time.
  3. If you are not satisfied with the offer ask for a better one.
  4. Don’t go to a place you were not invited.

I beleive that everything has a reason. So, that day supposed to be like this and grateful for that we could learn from it.

While waiting we had several ideas what we should do different on our next market, which will be on the 5th Sept 2020, in Szimpla Kert , at the Szimpla Fashion Hungarian Designer Market where I was chosen among 25 Hungarian Designers.

Hope to see you there!


Second chance 02.07.2020

Dear Blog readers, old and new customers!

My webshop will restart on July 2, 2020. This is  the second  “birth day” of my webshop,  also my husband’s 39th birthday 🙂

It may not be a coincidence that  a second chance starts on the 2nd ? 🙂

During the quarantine, I kept posting about my work, the international and Hungarian used postage stamps , the new stamps issued by the  Hungarian Post Office and the postcards I made after printing, both on my Facebook pand on my Instagram.

What I haven’t written much about yet is that I’ll be taking custom orders with or without frames from July 2nd 2020.

It is a matter of discussion what the themed image should be, in what size,  what color frame…

The price depends on the size of the picture and whether you want to order with or without a frame.

Each picture is unique, I don’t create the same pictures twice, just similar.

For example, like this:

or this:

Someone saw this as a rocking horse, but it wasn’t 🙂 This is a mother-daughter thumbnail I made for my mom to Mother’s Day and I could give it to her only in May 2020-

Even such:

I feel like I got a second chance from  Fate because I found my own style that wasn’t with me at the start of the webshop in Sept 2019.

Colors have always been important in my life, so I make thumbnails for colorful backgrounds.

There’s always something colorful or something unique about me that makes mestand out from the crowd – that’s what they say about me.

I can finally stand out not only with my clothes or accessories, but also with my work.

So far, I’ve never enjoyed a single job like this.
