Sunday Stamps: Birds

 Good day, and welcome to Sunday Stamps.  This week's theme is Birds.

I am sharing a stamp for the USA that I shared some years ago on this blog:

The Evening Grosbeak, which I used to see as a child at the feeder by our kitchen window in New England.  This is the male bird.  It has been a long time since I have seen these birds.

Sunday Stamps: Autumn Colors

 Good Day, and welcome to my blog.  It's time for Sunday Stamps.  The theme this week is Autumn colors, and the US Postal Service has just released these stamps, in time for me to feature them on my blog:

More information on these stamps can be found HERE.   I think this fits the theme, don't you?

A previous entry of mine also has autumn colors, as well as the theme of water.

Sunday Stamps: Arts and crafts

 Hello and welcome to my blog.

This week we are looking at art and crafts on stamps.  I am sharing today a set of stamps I have shared a long time ago, but so appropriate for today:

According to Wikipedia:

"Navajo rugs and blankets (Navajo: diyogĂ­) are textiles produced by Navajo people of the Four Corners area of the United States. Navajo textiles are highly regarded and have been sought after as trade items for over 150 years. Commercial production of handwoven blankets and rugs has been an important element of the Navajo economy....Navajo textiles were originally utilitarian blankets for use as cloaks, dresses, saddle blankets, and similar purposes. Toward the end of the 19th century, weavers began to make rugs for tourism and export. Typical Navajo textiles have strong geometric patterns."

They are so beautiful!

Sunday Stamps: water

 Good day, and welcome to my entry to Sunday Stamps, hosted at SeeitonaPostcard.  I am sharing a stamp I first pictured in 2015 as part of Sunday stamps then:

Perfect Fall foliage in this view!  Here is what the USPS has to say:

"With this stamp, the U.S. Postal Service® celebrates one of West Virginia's most photographed landmarks, the Glade Creek Grist Mill.

The stamp art captures the historic, aged beauty of the mill in its pristine setting along Glade Creek. The water flows by the mill and around boulders and rock formations along the creek bed. Surrounding the mill are trees in early autumn colors of greens, yellows, and oranges.

Located in Babcock State Park in Fayette County, West Virginia, the mill looks as though it has existed on that site for hundreds of years. In reality, it is a modern re-creation, completed in 1976, of a mill that had once stood nearby on Glade Creek. The look is authentic, however, as the new mill was constructed from parts taken from three historic West Virginia mills.

Mills were once the center of local farming communities, offering the necessary service of grinding wheat, corn, and other grains, a backbreaking task when done by hand. The mill stands as a monument to the more than 500 West Virginia gristmills that were in operation at the turn of the 20th century."

A high value stamp that I have not seen in person.
