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!

Sunday Stamps II "P"

Good day and welcome to my postcard and stamp blog.  Today I am participating in Sunday Stamps, hosted at SeeitonaPostcard.

This stamp I received via Postcrossing some time ago - a stamp from Poland.  Pretty flowers!

I have a page on Facebook: "Like" me and keep up with my infrequent  stamp, postcard, and quilt posts at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Viridian61/347674418583948?ref=hl

Sepia Saturday May 20

OK, I am a little late, but I saw the prompt for this week's Sepia Saturday and had to join in.
Rocks!  Overhanging rocks!


On the front: " The mysterious hanging boulder mystifies all who pass under.  Polar Caves, N.H."

On the back:  "Polar Caves, N.H., America's greatest Boulder Caverns.  A maze of caves and spectacular rock formations.  All caverns colorfully lighted.  Different from and [sic] caverns you may have seen.  Nothing like it on the American continent."

I love older tourist postcards like this.

Polar caves in Rumney NH is still there and still an active tourist location.  Its website is, of course, http://www.polarcaves.com/. I think the hanging boulder is still there.

Sunday Stamps II "N"

Welcome Sunday Stamps readers and contributors.  I have been busy with my other blog and have shamefully neglected this one.  But I am back with a stamp for the letter N.


This is a stamp issued last year to celebrate the statehood of Nebraska.  The photo shows sandhill cranes rising from the Platte River.  Part of their migration takes them over Nebraska and their gathering here is a sight to see.
The area of this state (and nearby states)  became part of the USA as part of the Louisiana Purchase.
