Sunday Stamps #154

Good Saturday evening! It's cold and snowy here in the American Midwest. I am a little later than usual, but it's time to set up Sunday Stamps.



Our theme this week is pets, which I think will be a favorite of my contributors.  I thought of this theme when I received this stamp recently from Great Britain:


Given its value (22 p) I would guess this stamp was issued some time ago.  Hmm, my new scanner does not seem to catch the detail of this stamp.  Maybe I am scanning at  too low a resolution.  Well now I know. 

  Please join me this week with your stamp of choice, showing a pet.

Theme next week:  Geology or landscapes.
Theme week after that: Folk art.

What a coincidence! I bought the Stubbs set of dogs from #my market trader' this week but that is not what I am going to show.

There seems to be a proliferation of Stubbs' dogs! I bought the cards and did choose them to show this week.

I don't remember this Stubbs set but what a wonderful painter of animals.

Not my favourite theme at first, but I must say that I'm enjoying the discover of so many stamps about pets in the contributors' blogs!

I think the King Charles spaniel is the only one I have seen of that set. Lovely.
