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.)

Sunday Stamps II 158

Hello and welcome! I am a bit late for Sunday Stamps, posting on Monday instead of Sunday.  It's been a whirlwind of activity here at chez Viridian, what with the holidays and family visits.

Time now for a pause and a Christmas Sunday Stamp.  I am not sure if I've shown this one before - it was released last year by the US Postal service:


This is from a painting in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Sunday Stamps II 154

In the tour of the alphabet, SeeitonaPostcard is up to the letter Q and I am eager to share.  Why?  because I love quilts as well as stamps.  And when the two come together, it's wonderful.

Sunday Stamps II 152

This week SeeitonaPostcard is up to the letter "O" in the tour of the alphabet.

Back in my Postcrossing days, I was very active and hoped to get postcards from lots of different countries.  I was excited to receive a card from the Sultanate of Oman - only 168 cards sent from Oman at that time, and one of them to me!  Here are the stamps from that postcard:


Showing a traditional dagger and scabbard from that country.  Cool!
