Sunday Stamps II "P"

Good day and welcome to my postcard and stamp blog.  Today I am participating in Sunday Stamps, hosted at SeeitonaPostcard.

This stamp I received via Postcrossing some time ago - a stamp from Poland.  Pretty flowers!

Sepia Saturday May 20

OK, I am a little late, but I saw the prompt for this week's Sepia Saturday and had to join in.
Rocks!  Overhanging rocks!


On the front: " The mysterious hanging boulder mystifies all who pass under.  Polar Caves, N.H."

On the back:  "Polar Caves, N.H., America's greatest Boulder Caverns.  A maze of caves and spectacular rock formations.  All caverns colorfully lighted.  Different from and [sic] caverns you may have seen.  Nothing like it on the American continent."

I love older tourist postcards like this.

Polar caves in Rumney NH is still there and still an active tourist location.  Its website is, of course, http://www.polarcaves.com/. I think the hanging boulder is still there.

Sunday Stamps II "N"

Welcome Sunday Stamps readers and contributors.  I have been busy with my other blog and have shamefully neglected this one.  But I am back with a stamp for the letter N.


This is a stamp issued last year to celebrate the statehood of Nebraska.  The photo shows sandhill cranes rising from the Platte River.  Part of their migration takes them over Nebraska and their gathering here is a sight to see.
The area of this state (and nearby states)  became part of the USA as part of the Louisiana Purchase.

Sunday Stamps April 8

Welcome to my blog on postcards and stamps.
 Today I am contributing to Sunday Stamps, which is up to the letter H in the tour of the alphabet. Violet Sky has shared a stamp for the letter H, hockey.

I have a stamp from Hong Kong.


Our scanner is not working so I took a cell phone photo.  I think this winter/holiday stamp has been shred before, but no matter, still cute!

Sunday Stamps II Feb. 25

Welcome to my blog on postcards and stamps.
 
Today I am contributing to Sunday Stamps, which is up to the letter B in the tour of the alphabet.  Violet Sky has shared a badger (barsuk) on a stamp for Belarus.  I have also found an animal stamp from Belarus:


This is the southern white-breasted hedgehog (Erinaceus concolor), sometimes referred to as east European hedgehog, white-bellied hedgehog or white-chested hedgehog, according to Wikipedia.  It does not appear to be threatened.  A cute little animal, at least on this stamp!!!

Sunday Stamps II 165

Good day, and welcome to Sunday on my blog.  It is the week of Mardi Gras, but it is also the Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year.

I am joining Sunday Stamps with this year's US contribution:
There is a gold embossed dog in the upper left hand corner, but yes, it's hard to tell that this stamp celebrates the Year of the Dog.  Pictured here are some bamboo stems, it seems.

Sunday Stamps II 162

Welcome to my contribution to Sunday Stamps, in the cool and drizzly American Midwest.

SeeitonaPostcard is up to the letter X.  I remember gathering images from the internet of words pertaining to the alphabet, for a project my daughter was doing in first grade (some years ago now!)  Tiring of X-rays and the xylophone,  I printed out a picture of a Xebec:


A type of boat used in the Mediterranean.  "But momma, that is a boat!" claimed my daughter, and off we went to find a picture of a xylophone.

I don't have this stamp in hand - I went off on the internet myself to find this image of a Maltese stamp.

Sunday Stamps II 160

Happy New Year everyone!!!

It's time for Sunday Stamps, and SeeitonaPostcard is up to the letter V.  Growing up in New England,  I immediately thought of the state of Vermont.

A state stamp is still available in the collector's area of the US Postal Service website, paired with the state quarter:


The design of the stamp looks like a vintage tourist postcard.  (It's a little strange to see the Fall colors of the Vermont mountains up against the snow that Vermont is famous for.)
