Sunday Stamps "E"

Hello and welcome to my infrequent postings to this blog.  My day job started up in late August, and this weekend I am fighting a cold.  No fun. :-(

However I do want to participate in Sunday Stamps, up to the letter E in the tour of the alphabet.  I found this stamp in my work desk, while looking for something else:


A stamp issued in 2008 celebrating the work of Charles and Ray Eames, a husband and wife design partnership.

According to Wikipedia:
Charles Ormond Eames, Jr. /ˈmz/ (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" Kaiser Eames (1912–1988) were an American design married couple who made significant historical contributions to the development of modern architecture and furniture. Among their most well-known designs is the Eames Lounge Chair. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic designfine art, and film. Ray Kaiser Eames and Charles Eames worked together as creative partners.

Sunday Stamps "A"

Good day, and welcome to my blog.  This is post #500 on Viridian's Postcard Blog!!!

I am joining SeeitonaPostcard for Sunday Stamps.  We are on round three of the alphabet, starting with the letter A.  I have an older stamp from Finland:


The beautiful Aurora Borealis.  I have seen pale versions of the aurora, but not the colorful and bright lights that one sees at far northern latitudes.

Sepia Saturday July 28

I was cruising by Sepia Saturday today and saw this week's prompt, and thought, I bet I could find something related at the Library of Congress website.  The website has been reorganized, but I cam across this image:


Part of the illustration for a book, "The settler's guide in the United States and British North American provinces"  etc. etc.  (There is much more to the title as was done in the 1800's.)
I cannot make out the name of the ship, just that it is 600 feet long.  And one can see it is from that transitional time period from sail to steam.

Sunday Stamps "U"

Good day!
I am joining in with Sunday Stamps at SeeitonaPostcard after about a month away.
We are up to the letter "U".


A stamp from Ukraine, showing the national flag.  And note the sender has included the surrounding material from the stamp sheet, so that you get a real sense of the flag waving in the breeze.

Please visit Seeitonapostcard this week and see who else is joining in!
