Sunday Stamps: Blue

 Good day, and welcome to a cold but sunny day in the American Midwest.  The snow that fell yesterday and the day before is not melting.

It's time for Sunday Stamps, and the theme is blue.

I have a clever interpretation for you today:


Bluegrass music!  This stamp will be available on March 14, 2024.  The instruments pictured are the core of a bluegrass band.  The "high and lonesome" sound is from the Appalachian region of the USA.

Sunday Stamps: Calligraphy

 Good day, and welcome to my blog.

It is a normal temperature today in the American Midwest, after two day of warmth (55 - 65 Degrees F).

It's time for Sunday Stamps.  The theme this week is calligraphy.  I don't have any stamps that feature a typeface that looks like handwriting, but I do have a stamp that may fit the theme:

A USA stamp available now, honoring women cryptologists.

From the USPS webpage: The stamp image:  the background is a WAVES recruitment poster, with an overlay of characters from the "Purple" code.  The Purple code was used by the Japanese government to encrypt diplomatic messages.  The key to this code was was discovered in Sept. 1940 by Genevieve Grotjan.  The USA could read and exploit the information in Japanese diplomatic messages for the rest of the war.

The women could never talk of their work, and did not do so, even after the war.

Sunday Stamps: Lighthouses

 Good Day and welcome to my blog.  It is a cold but sunny day in the American Midwest.

It's time for Sunday Stamps.

The theme this week is lighthouses.  Having no stamps in hand, I went searching on the internet and found an ebay seller with this set from 2021:



The whole sheet.  These are forever stamps.  The brick one is Navesink, New Jersey.

Sunday Stamps: Trees

 Good day, and welcome to my blog.  It is a cool and cloudy wintery afternoon in the American Midwest.  It is time for Sunday Stamps. and the theme this week is trees.

I have some stamps I shared back in 2011:


These older stamps from Poland came from a lot I purchased on ebay.  The trees shown are pear (on the left) and cherry (on the right).  Thank you to Google translate to help me translate the Polish!  I certainly didn't recognize the Latin species names.

Our hostess has a wonderful se-tenant set of apricot trees over the 4 seasons.
