Sunday Stamps II 19

Hello again, it's time for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at See it on a Postcard.

The theme this week is Dinosaurs.


These stamps came to me on a Postcrossing card from Turkey.  I last showed them in 2012.  The T-rex looks scary!

Visit See it on a Postcard to see what else is being shared!

Sunday Stamps II 13

The them this week at See it on a Postcard is time of exploration: Space.  I last shared these stamps in 2011, so maybe some new players in Sunday Stamps haven't seen them.


From the USA, a long time ago!  You can click on this scan and enlarge it.

And one of my favorites, from the CCCP (USSR).

Enjoy more space stamps at See it on a Postcard.

Sunday Stamps II 10

The theme is: the Lunar New Year (the Ram).  Hopefully I can link this up early and be one of the first Americans to show this year's stamp:
No rams on it but:
In the United States and elsewhere, the occasion is marked in various ways across many cultures; parades featuring enormous and vibrantly painted papier-mache dragons, parties, and other special events are common. Many families set out a candy tray, like the one depicted in the stamp art, to provide guests with an assortment of dried fruits and candies for a sweet beginning to the new year. Drums are played to celebrate this time of renewed hope for the future, with drumsticks sometimes painted red for luck. Firecrackers are set off to ward off evil spirits. Red envelopes (hong bao) containing money are given as gifts to children and loved ones.  (From the USPS website)

Any reason for a party!

Sunday Stamps II 9

Violet Sky is hosting Sunday Stamps now on her blog, See It On a Postcard - visit her there and see who else is playing this week!

envelope 100 has already shown these stamps, hope you don't mind seeing it again:

These are the US Postal Service's "love" stamps for this year.  I think I like the red one better. :-)
Hope you had and are having a pleasant weekend.
