Sunday Stamps #92

It's Saturday afternoon here in the Midwest of the USA.  Leaves are in good color, and falling fast.  I just wish it were sunny - love Fall days like that.  Today it is bright but a gray sky.

So, it must be time to set up my post for Sunday Stamps.

This week's theme: The folkways of various cultures. folktales, food, costume, pottery, you name it.  We have had this theme before but it is always interesting to see what people contribute.

What I have is 2 stamps from Romania, sent by Danut (bardamu1964) in a private swap.

On the left is some pottery from the Maramures (Marmatia) area of Romania.  On the right, pottery from Valcea area.  ( I am sorry, I cannot reproduce the actual letters of the Romanian alphabet).

Enjoy your weekend, enjoy your Fall (or Spring, in the Antipodes), and join me for Sunday Stamps.

Theme next week: Ships of all sorts.

A useful link:
Type Romanian characters without a Romanian keyboard

You can type many languages on that site and then copy and paste into Google Translate.

We've had some sun to bring out the sparkle of those fall colours. Today like you it is tending to grey.
Pottery is a popular subject for stamps, something that fits well on the space.

Hello! Spring has certainly sprung here in the Antipodes, we had a gorgeous warm day with blue skies, perfect to be out and about in, which makes a nice change from the horrible grey rainy weather we had yesterday - but that's Spring for you! Thanks for another Sunday Stamps. Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Helen.

The rain we have been getting here would fill those lovely pots in no time.

we seem to be going into November weather without much of autumn :(. Nice theme, I spent all week thinking I didn't have anything and then remembered where there might be something suitable :)
