Once again this week I am on the move, this time for a family vacation to visit my parents and have some fun. Therefore I am putting this post together early and scheduling it to be published on Saturday afternoon.
And so it must be time for Sunday Stamps. It is June and I hope beautiful weather where you are.
Our theme this week, by suggestion, is circuses, clowns, or fun fairs, interpreted broadly.
I don't know how common these kinds of stamps are, so be inventive! I picked this theme because it was a suggestion, and the US Post Office just released a sheet of 8 different designs.
Here are 4 of those designs.
The stamps designs are based on posters from the early 20th century. From the stamp sheet: 'Joyful posters beckoned the masses toward the grand show, thus proving P.T. Barnum right: "The noblest art is that of making others happy." ' I know P. T. Barnum from another saying attributed to him: "There's a sucker born every minute."
While I appreciate the graphic designs, I admit I don't like circuses and definitely don't like clowns.
Join in this week if you can, and prep for next week, when:
the theme will be anything you wish. theme week after that; I'll get back to you!
