Sunday Stamps # 177

I am having intermittent outages of internet connection tonight, so I think this will be a shorter entry than usual.

Our theme this week is archaeology/anthropology, as always interpreted broadly.  Perhaps a stamp of a historic site?  Or of historic art?

As in this stamp of very old, very historic art.  I find rock art from this time period fascinating, and I wonder what other artifacts may have existed but have since decayed away.

Maybe, now that you have seen my stamp, you can think of some related stamp in your collection?  Please join me this week, and visit some other contributors.

I have a page on Facebook: "Like" me and keep up with my infrequent  stamp, postcard, and quilt posts at

Theme next week: Sport.
Theme week after that: beautiful landscapes.

Sunday Stamps # 176

A lovely June evening, the longest day of the year. Lovely long twilight evenings this time of year, followed by lightning bugs in the dark.

It's time for Sunday Stamps.

Our theme this week is open, anything you wish.  It's always interesting to see what contributors choose for this.  Here is a stamp that would be hard to fit into a theme.

But it is one I would want to share with you all.  From a recent Postcrossing card.

What interesting stamp or stamps do you have to share this week?  Please join in, even for the first time.

Theme next week: archaeology / anthropology.  I have a stamp of early rock art.
Theme two weeks from now: sports.

Sunday Stamps # 175

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!

Sunday Stamps # 174

I am putting this post together early as I will be on a short but busy business trip this weekend.

If it's Saturday evening, it must be time for Sunday Stamps.

Our theme this week is airplanes and air transport.  My stamp to share is from China.

I like how the airplane is small, and this is a typical airport scene (granted in a tropical area with palm trees and florid vegetation.)  This came to me of course from a postcard via Postcrossing.

And speaking of Postcrossing, did you see that Willa of Postcard Perfect was featured?  And she mentioned our contributor Sheila of A Postcard a Day?  I feel as if know famous people!

Please join me with your own air transport, interpreted widely, as always.

Theme next week: Circus, clowns, or fun fairs, interpreted broadly.
Theme week after that:  Open, anything.
