Sunday Stamps II - 59

All it well at chez Viridian, just busy and forgetful about my blog.
I am joining in again with Sunday Stamps, run by Violet Sky at SeeitonaPostcard.

 The theme this week is Winter Scenes.


One of my favorite stamps, featured on my blog some years ago.  I feel it is very evocative of deep winter.

Please see who else is joining in at See it on a Postcard!

Sunday Stamps December 20

Welcome again to my blog. I'm sorry I've been so neglectful.
It's Christmas time and that means time for sharing Christmas stamps at Sunday Stamps, at See it on a Postcard blog.  My contribution is below.


This image is from the US Postal Service website.  They generally have a Madonna and Child stamp every year (this one from 2013).  Following a theme, it seems, the Christ Child is hardly a newborn here.  And He has a funny face - even a little creepy, maybe?  Note Mary is resting her head on her hand - she is probably very tired!

My contribution to this week's Sunday Stamps.

Sunday Stamps II 43

The theme this week for Sunday Stamps is Flowers, at See it on a Postcard.  One of my favorite themes (along with birds).  Here are two flower stamps from Jersey:


Along with a shore bird!

I received this card via Postcrossing, and I was excited to get a card from a small and (to me) obscure place.

See who else is playing along at See it on A Postcard.

Sunday Stamps II - 40

It's Sunday morning so it must be time to check out Sunday Stamps at See it on a Postcard.

I last showed these stamps in 2013 at the cusp of a Government shutdown. As I said then:

This is a group of four stamps from a larger set.  Most of the photographs were taken by Lewis Hine, a famous photographer.  According to Wikipedia, "Lewis Wickes Hine (September 26, 1874 – November 3, 1940) was an American sociologist and photographer. Hine used his camera as a tool for social reform. His photographs were instrumental in changing the child labor laws in the United States."
