Sundday Stamps # 187

Goodness, it's been a busy Saturday, with several family events.  Therefore I am putting this up late on Saturday night, USA time.  For tomorrow it is time for Sunday Stamps.

This week's theme is automobiles and motor transport, and should be an easy theme to follow.  I was inspired by a stamp I received recently:

Although an American car, the Duesenberg SJ is featured, this stamp is from the Czech Republic, as you can see.  It is nicely and delicately postmarked in the corner, from Prague.

Please join me this week with any auto or motor transport stamps you wish.  I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent quilt posts at

Theme next week;  Mammals.
Theme two week from now: anything you wish.

Sunday Stamps # 186

A somewhat rainy cloudy day here in the American Midwest.  It's back to school and school schedules for all of us.  I am finding myself exhausted by Friday afternoon!  Today I am recovered enough to put up Sunday Stamps.  Our theme this week is cultural artifacts, especially jewelry.  I was thinking of the stamp below.

I cannot read the details, and the card from South Africa has since been buried, but I believe this is a necklace from one of the native groups in South Africa.

However, feel free to interpret this theme broadly.  I hope you are able to join me this week.  Suggestions for future themes welcome, as I am running out of ideas, after 185 weeks.

Theme next week:  Automobiles and motor transport.
Theme week after that: mammals.

Sunday Stamps # 185

Well it's a busy morning here! I am going away with the family for a short vacation at a lakeside cottage and I need to get Sunday Stamps up and rolling.  Last one of the Summer.

Our theme is reptiles.  Amphibians are OK too though.

Lacerta is indeed a genus of lizards.  I was afraid my memory of this stamp was faulty and this might be a salamander!  Anyway a nice stamp from the Czech Republic, rather heavily cancelled!

Please join me this week with a reptile or amphibian.  Add your link below.

Theme next week:  Cultural artifacts, esp jewelry, but could be anything.
Theme week after that:  I'll get back to you!

Sunday Stamps # 184

Welcome back to Sunday Stamps after a week away. For me it was time to get the children ready for school and get ourselves used to a new schedule.  I am still not used to getting up so early!

We return with the easy theme of anything you wish.  Future themes are listed below.  For me, a stamp from Hellas (Greece):

Just one of many stamps that have come my way this sometimes hot August, via Postcrossing.

I hope my regular contributors come back after a week's vacation.  New people, please join us also!  Add your link below.


Theme next week: reptiles.
Theme week after that: Cultural artifacts, esp. jewelry, but could be anything.
