Sunday Stamps # 192

I am off to a professional meeting so I am setting up this post ahead of time, and having blogger open it on Saturday afternoon.  I will probably be busy but I will visit your blogs as best I can.

Out theme this week is country life/harvest/Autumn, by suggestion.

My stamps come by the USPS website, but I'll say they are beautiful in person too.

The U.S. Postal Service® celebrates the abundance and bounty of America’s farmers markets with four colorful, se-tenant stamps depicting a table laden with products found at a typical farmers market. The stamp on the far left has among its products various baked goods, artisan cheeses, and eggs. The produce on the second stamp includes vegetables and fruits. Cut flowers adorn the third stamp. The stamp on the far right features live plants. Most items bear handwritten labels that identify the product and its price.

Come and join me this week with this seasonal theme!


Theme next week: Professions or trades.
Theme week after that: Anything you wish.

Sunday Stamps # 191

It's another cool gray evening here in the American Midwest. However it was sunny during the day and a great day to observe changing leaves.

It's time for Sunday Stamps, and our theme this week is anything you wish.

These two Russian stamps were on the same postcard as last week's se-tenant stamps.  I love mountain stamps, snow covered or not!

Please join me with anything you wish this week.

Sunday Stamps #190

It is a cool, gray day here in the American Midwest.  It's Saturday night and time for Sunday Stamps.

Our theme for this week is se-tenant stamps.  I have this set from Russia, where the design is subtle but does pass from stamp to stamp:

This 2011 set commemorates something about the postal service, but beyond that I am lost.  I was excited to see these on a Postcrossing postcard however!

I was also excited to see 13 people join Sunday Stamps last week.  Everyone is welcome to share stamp related posts this week.

Sunday Stamps # 189

It is another beautiful fall day here: warm and sunny, dry, with a cooling breeze.  Just right for a fall festival, which is indeed happening in my town.

But now I am home form the park, and it is time to set up Sunday Stamps.  Our theme this week is anything you wish.

I received a postcard of Scottish castles, and turned the card over to find these stamps:

First of all, I am glad actually to see Great Britain hold together, although it would have been interesting to collect stamps from a newly independent Scotland.  How do my British contributors feel?

Second, about the stamps.  On the left is Emmeline Pankhurst, a well know and perhaps controversial figure in the British Suffragette movement.  Here is a link to a Wikipedia entry on her life, and one from the BBC.

On the right:  I am not sure what this stamp is to commemorate.

Please join me with a stamp of your choice.


Theme next week:  se-tenant stamps.
