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.

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."

This week's theme at See it on a Postcard is one of my favorites - Rocks and Minerals!

Sunday Stamps II 36

Sunday Stamps

For week 36: the theme is lighthouses.

I have saved this stamp for a while but....

now that I look at it, I don't see any water.  But it sure looks like a lighthouse!!!  A stamp from Taiwan.

I am joining See it on a Postcard this week, who has been hosting Sunday Stamps for some time.  See who else is playing this week!
