Sunday Stamps #100!

Hurrah!  We have made it this far!  It's the December 9 2012 edition of Sunday Stamps and I made this far with just a week or two off and a few bumps along the way.

I had thought of having a giveaway in honor of this auspicious event.  But what?  I thought of specialty US postage, but with my international audience, who could use it except me and Postcardy, and maybe a few lurkers?  So I am sorry to say there is nothing special on offer, but I hope you will enjoy my contributions today.

First, a stamp and surrounding printed material from a Postcrosser in Russia.

This is a stamp of Catherine I.  Wow!  It filled up most of the postcard!  Thank you Lili for sending this from St. Petersburg.

The next item came from China.  It is postage preprinted on a very large envelope, and a Postcrossing postcard was inside.  I scanned just the stamp, not the whole envelope, which was decorated with a mountain landscape.

What special stamps have you to share this week?  Please feel free to join in, even if it's your first time, or your first time in a while.


Theme next week: Christmas/holiday stamps.

Congratulations on your great idea reaching 100 . Let the party begin.
Great mini sheet to arrive on a postcard, what a treat. I like the detail of the China one.

The surrounding material included with the stamp of Catherine I really adds to the interest of the stamp.

Congratulations on this great milestone! Im glad to have been a part of it, despite not being always able to participate. I wish you many more milestones achieved here!

and have to agree with the others....the Catherine stamp is great! I love it when people use the entire souvenir or mini sheet...looks so great on cards or letters!

May I just add to the congratulations? I know what hard work it can be to run these things. And I'll add my appreciation of the Catherine I stamp too.
