Sunday Stamps # 200

Welcome this week to my last posting of Sunday Stamps.


 Sunday Stamps officially started on January 8, 2011. I posted a stamp from France, a 5 franc stamp showing a stained glass window:

This is the stamp that really made me look carefully at these little works of art on paper.  It arrived at my apartment on a package for my roommate C. - a package from her family in France.

I had six participants that week in January.  You may know three of them: postcardy, Postal Picture, and Sheila at A Postcard a Day.

Our theme this week is art on stamps, and I am leaving as I started, with the stamp above.

Sunday Stamps is Not Ending!  Violet Sky has graciously offered to continue.  It will be hosted at See it on a Postcard blog.  The theme for Dec 21 is Christmas/Hannukah stamps.  Thank you Violet Sky for continuing this meme.

Sunday Stamps # 199

Christmas is getting closer! And, the end of Viridian hosting Sunday Stamps. But we are not done yet.

Our theme for week # 199 is Anything you wish.  I will add the request that maybe this could be holiday-related.  My first stamp this week is.

A birdcage as a hat eh?  Well it's an interesting stamp from Hong Kong!

And then a stamp on one of my favorite themes, geology and rocks:

Also from Hong Kong!

Please join me this week, with any stamp you wish.

Sunday Stamps #198

Hello and welcome to Sunday Stamps. It is American Thanksgiving, known for many things, including many Americans staying off the internet for a few days.  But here at chez Viridian, we ate our leftover turkey, watched a movie, and set up Sunday Stamps.

Our theme is birds, a perennial favorite, of stamp issuers and for me too.

From a previous entry:
The bird on the left is known as the Japanese white eye or mejiro.  It is native to many areas in east Asia.   The bird on the right is The Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), commonly abbreviated to just Night Heron in Eurasia, is a medium-sized heron found throughout a large part of the world,  according to Wikipedia.  Both these stamps are from South Korea.

Next is the spotted dove from Malaysia.

Then, the Evening Grosbeak from the Americas.

I used to see these birds in the winter, when I was a bit younger.  A small flock would come to the feeder by the kitchen window.  But it has been many years since I have seen them.

Please join me this week with your bird stamps.

Theme next week:  anything you wish.
Theme for #200: as we started: art on stamps.

Sunday Stamps # 197

And so we move closer to the end of my journey, Sunday Stamps # 200.

It's a warmer day, and we had a nice dinner at chez Viridian, a pasta casserole with Italian sausage and cheese, bread and salad, and a nice red wine for the adults. :-)

Our theme this week is furniture.  One of my stamps has been shown before in previous weeks:

It may be a classic but it does not look comfortable to sit upon.  And one from the USA:

A Chippendale, at 4 cents this is for make up postage.

Please join me this week with any stamp on furniture, or home furnishings.


Theme next week: birds, a perennial theme.
Theme week after that:  Anything you wish.
