Sunday Stamps II 165

Good day, and welcome to Sunday on my blog.  It is the week of Mardi Gras, but it is also the Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year.

I am joining Sunday Stamps with this year's US contribution:
There is a gold embossed dog in the upper left hand corner, but yes, it's hard to tell that this stamp celebrates the Year of the Dog.  Pictured here are some bamboo stems, it seems.

Sunday Stamps II 162

Welcome to my contribution to Sunday Stamps, in the cool and drizzly American Midwest.

SeeitonaPostcard is up to the letter X.  I remember gathering images from the internet of words pertaining to the alphabet, for a project my daughter was doing in first grade (some years ago now!)  Tiring of X-rays and the xylophone,  I printed out a picture of a Xebec:


A type of boat used in the Mediterranean.  "But momma, that is a boat!" claimed my daughter, and off we went to find a picture of a xylophone.

I don't have this stamp in hand - I went off on the internet myself to find this image of a Maltese stamp.

Sunday Stamps II 160

Happy New Year everyone!!!

It's time for Sunday Stamps, and SeeitonaPostcard is up to the letter V.  Growing up in New England,  I immediately thought of the state of Vermont.

A state stamp is still available in the collector's area of the US Postal Service website, paired with the state quarter:


The design of the stamp looks like a vintage tourist postcard.  (It's a little strange to see the Fall colors of the Vermont mountains up against the snow that Vermont is famous for.)

Sunday Stamps II 158

Hello and welcome! I am a bit late for Sunday Stamps, posting on Monday instead of Sunday.  It's been a whirlwind of activity here at chez Viridian, what with the holidays and family visits.

Time now for a pause and a Christmas Sunday Stamp.  I am not sure if I've shown this one before - it was released last year by the US Postal service:


This is from a painting in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

Merry Christmas everyone!
