Sunday Stamps #118

It's Saturday, and time to open up Sunday stamps a bit early, for friends in Asia and Europe.


Theme this week: Lighthouses, or other public structures.

I received the following stamp on a card from Germany, and I suspect there is a series of lighthouse stamps.



 But Lighthouse stamps may be hard to find, so please interpret this theme broadly.

It has finally warmed up in the American Midwest!  Trees and bushes are budding like crazy, trying to catch up with the season.

Theme next week: Earth Day and other April Celebrations.

It's Spring in the Northern Hemisphere!  There are New Year celebrations in some parts of the world; it's National Poetry Month; World Health Day, St. George's Day.... Many other remembrances fall in April.  This Wikipedia link may help.  I know we just had Geology and the Environment as a theme, but I didn't want to let Earth Day pass without notice.  Be creative!

In fact I posted some lighthouses stamps not long time ago! See here:

In fact lighthouses stamps are one of my recurrent themes in the blog. Lighthouses are among my big passions.

For instance:

I found this was one theme where I had many examples to choose from!

I love the lighthouses theme!

One of the stamps I posted is from Germany and I think this Arngast and the Arkona I posted are from the same series. :)

I've got a German lighthouse too, judging from Maria's comment we might get a full German Sunday Stamp set. Your theme made me think I should get more lighthouse stamps.

I am in agreement with everyone: Lighthouses is a great theme!

I didn't have as many as other people, it seems, but I didn't look too hard.

It's warmed up here in the UK too, but with quite a strong wind again.

I remembered seeing I had a couple of lighthouse stamps, so I didn't have to look too far for them, but I couldn't remember seeing any others as I went through my 'stuff', so it's nice to see such a variety in everyone's posts for today.

I think that so far, lighthouses has been one of the easiest themes for me, having plenty of such stamps...probably coz i am fascinated by them and have them as a theme for my collections :)

lets see if i manage to find something suitable for next week :)

Marcie said...

Compared to last week the lighthouses were an easy topic.
