Sunday Stamps: From the 1900's

 Good day and welcome to my blog!

I was traveling last week and could not participate in a favorite theme of mine - geology!  The stamps I picked (from the internet) are probably from the 1900's.


And


Yes, they have the years on the stamps, how convenient.  Both these stamps are of garnets in rocks.  Garnet is a favorite mineral of mine.

I'll be traveling next week - to Alaska for a major vacation, so I will not be able to participate.  Have a great Sunday Stamps.

Sunday Stamps: Food (and drink)

 Ok I am stretching the theme a little bit but I just saw these stamps on the USPS website.  Expresso drinks!

What fun, and delicious.  These were released in April of this year.  There is also a set of coasters available!

Sunday Stamps: Inventions and inventors

 Good day, and welcome to my contribution to Sunday Stamps.  Today's theme is inventions and discoveries.

First I must say I don't have this stamp in hand - I have taken its image off the web.


A USA stamp from some time ago, when postage was 20 cents for a first class letter.  Nikola Tesla invented much more than the induction motor; alternating current for one.  There is now a line of electric cars named after him.

Sunday Stamps: Summer

 Good Afternoon!  I am coming to Sunday Stamps a bit late today.

This week's theme is Summer.  In the USA a staple of summer is the state or county fair.


This image is from the USPS website. As is the one below, of the 4 se-tenant stamps together:


Clearly I don't have these stamps in hand 😔

Our county fair is in August, and the state fair lasts for several weeks in August too.  My kids when they were little liked to see the animals on display.  When they were older, they wanted the food, and to go on all the rides!  The state fair also has a building with a model railroad set up - HO scale.  There is a big city being modeled with many buildings, and several trains whizzing around.
