Sunday Stamps # 200

Welcome this week to my last posting of Sunday Stamps.


 Sunday Stamps officially started on January 8, 2011. I posted a stamp from France, a 5 franc stamp showing a stained glass window:

This is the stamp that really made me look carefully at these little works of art on paper.  It arrived at my apartment on a package for my roommate C. - a package from her family in France.

I had six participants that week in January.  You may know three of them: postcardy, Postal Picture, and Sheila at A Postcard a Day.

Our theme this week is art on stamps, and I am leaving as I started, with the stamp above.

Sunday Stamps is Not Ending!  Violet Sky has graciously offered to continue.  It will be hosted at See it on a Postcard blog.  The theme for Dec 21 is Christmas/Hannukah stamps.  Thank you Violet Sky for continuing this meme.

Sunday Stamps # 199

Christmas is getting closer! And, the end of Viridian hosting Sunday Stamps. But we are not done yet.

Our theme for week # 199 is Anything you wish.  I will add the request that maybe this could be holiday-related.  My first stamp this week is.

A birdcage as a hat eh?  Well it's an interesting stamp from Hong Kong!

And then a stamp on one of my favorite themes, geology and rocks:

Also from Hong Kong!

Please join me this week, with any stamp you wish.

Sunday Stamps #198

Hello and welcome to Sunday Stamps. It is American Thanksgiving, known for many things, including many Americans staying off the internet for a few days.  But here at chez Viridian, we ate our leftover turkey, watched a movie, and set up Sunday Stamps.

Our theme is birds, a perennial favorite, of stamp issuers and for me too.

From a previous entry:
The bird on the left is known as the Japanese white eye or mejiro.  It is native to many areas in east Asia.   The bird on the right is The Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), commonly abbreviated to just Night Heron in Eurasia, is a medium-sized heron found throughout a large part of the world,  according to Wikipedia.  Both these stamps are from South Korea.

Next is the spotted dove from Malaysia.

Then, the Evening Grosbeak from the Americas.

I used to see these birds in the winter, when I was a bit younger.  A small flock would come to the feeder by the kitchen window.  But it has been many years since I have seen them.

Please join me this week with your bird stamps.

Theme next week:  anything you wish.
Theme for #200: as we started: art on stamps.

Sunday Stamps # 197

And so we move closer to the end of my journey, Sunday Stamps # 200.

It's a warmer day, and we had a nice dinner at chez Viridian, a pasta casserole with Italian sausage and cheese, bread and salad, and a nice red wine for the adults. :-)

Our theme this week is furniture.  One of my stamps has been shown before in previous weeks:

It may be a classic but it does not look comfortable to sit upon.  And one from the USA:

A Chippendale, at 4 cents this is for make up postage.

Please join me this week with any stamp on furniture, or home furnishings.


Theme next week: birds, a perennial theme.
Theme week after that:  Anything you wish.

Sunday Stamps # 196

It continues cold in the American Midwest. And maybe a hint of snow in the air!

It's Saturday night, so time for Sunday Stamps.  Our theme this week is anything you wish.

I'll start with  stamps that arrived recently on a Postcrossing postcard:

These are from the Netherlands.  My correspondent, Maud, tells me, "The stamps show bonnets from different areas in my country, still worn by elderly and or people living in "The Bible Belt"."  It's funny to me in the USA thinking of the Netherlands having a Bible Belt, and where that might be. And strange to think that in some years from now they may not be worn at all - how sad.

Please join me this week in sharing anything you wish -- maybe a recent arrival in your mailbox?


Theme next week: Furniture (sort of by suggestion)
Theme week after that: birds ( a perennial theme)

Sunday Stamps # 195

It's another gray day here in the American Midwest, chilly, and the days are getting shorter.  But let's cheer up and share some Sunday Stamps.

Our theme this week is fruits of the forest: nuts and berries.  I think this is a new theme for Sunday Stamps.

This is the common blackberry also know as Rubus fruticosus.  It is a widespread kind of bush or bramble (watch out for the thorns!) with delicious fruit.  This pretty stamp is from Turkey.

And now for an announcement.  We have had almost 4 years (almost 200 weeks) of Sunday Stamps, and it's been a wonderful time.  I have seen so many great stamps, learned so many things about different countries and their folkways, music, and important persons, among other topics.  However, over the last few months I have felt my interest wane, and it's been difficult to find themes where I have a stamp to share.  Thank you, for example, to Calantha who had many good suggestions, but I was able to use just one.  I am also participating less in Postcrossing, so the flow of stamps into my mailbox is decreasing.

Therefore it is time for me to announce that Sunday Stamps # 200 will be the last.  It is with some regret, and I will miss you all, 'meeting' on my computer on Sundays.  But I feel it is time to make the break. I have been turning this over in my head for weeks.  It's better to do this now, than for me to suddenly disappear without explanation some 10 weeks from now.  

I will be rejoining Beth and Postcard Friendship Friday, and dropping in on Sepia Saturday, so this blog will not disappear.  Thank you so much for your time, attention and most of all your contributions and kind comments.

Love to you all,


Theme next week: Anything you wish.
Theme week after that: furniture (sort of by suggestion!)

Sunday Stamps # 194

Hello again and welcome to Sunday Stamps!

It is a cold cloudy and yet sunny day here in the American Midwest.  The days are getting noticeably shorter.  And here in the USA we will set our clocks back one hour tonight.

Our theme for Sunday Stamps this week is anything you wish.

Here I share two lovely stamps from the People's Republic of China, of a tiger and of a panda.  A happy surprise on the back of a Postcrossing postcard last month.

What can you share this week?  Please join us, and visit other participants.


Theme next week: fruits of the forest: nuts and berries.

Sunday Stamps # 193

I am so sorry I did not visit every one's blogs last week. I was at a big professional meeting and busy every day from Saturday to when leaving Thursday.

It's been a busy week with conference and travel, and here it is Saturday night again!  It's time to set up Sunday Stamps.

This week, our theme is professions or trades.

This is a stamp from Singapore showing vanishing trades, that inspired me this week.  In this era of low cost and therefore "disposable" clothing and shoes, the professions of tailor and cobbler are slowly disappearing.  Though knowing of a good tailor is always a good thing I think!

Please join me this week, with a trade or worker, vanishing or otherwise.  I hope this theme isn't too challenging.


Theme next week: Anything you wish.
Theme week after that; fruits of the forest: nuts and berries.

Sunday Stamps # 192

I am off to a professional meeting so I am setting up this post ahead of time, and having blogger open it on Saturday afternoon.  I will probably be busy but I will visit your blogs as best I can.

Out theme this week is country life/harvest/Autumn, by suggestion.

My stamps come by the USPS website, but I'll say they are beautiful in person too.

The U.S. Postal Service® celebrates the abundance and bounty of America’s farmers markets with four colorful, se-tenant stamps depicting a table laden with products found at a typical farmers market. The stamp on the far left has among its products various baked goods, artisan cheeses, and eggs. The produce on the second stamp includes vegetables and fruits. Cut flowers adorn the third stamp. The stamp on the far right features live plants. Most items bear handwritten labels that identify the product and its price.

Come and join me this week with this seasonal theme!


Theme next week: Professions or trades.
Theme week after that: Anything you wish.

Sunday Stamps # 191

It's another cool gray evening here in the American Midwest. However it was sunny during the day and a great day to observe changing leaves.

It's time for Sunday Stamps, and our theme this week is anything you wish.

These two Russian stamps were on the same postcard as last week's se-tenant stamps.  I love mountain stamps, snow covered or not!

Please join me with anything you wish this week.


Theme next week: Country life/harvest/Autumn (by suggestion).

Sunday Stamps #190

It is a cool, gray day here in the American Midwest.  It's Saturday night and time for Sunday Stamps.

Our theme for this week is se-tenant stamps.  I have this set from Russia, where the design is subtle but does pass from stamp to stamp:

This 2011 set commemorates something about the postal service, but beyond that I am lost.  I was excited to see these on a Postcrossing postcard however!

I was also excited to see 13 people join Sunday Stamps last week.  Everyone is welcome to share stamp related posts this week.

Sunday Stamps # 189

It is another beautiful fall day here: warm and sunny, dry, with a cooling breeze.  Just right for a fall festival, which is indeed happening in my town.

But now I am home form the park, and it is time to set up Sunday Stamps.  Our theme this week is anything you wish.

I received a postcard of Scottish castles, and turned the card over to find these stamps:

First of all, I am glad actually to see Great Britain hold together, although it would have been interesting to collect stamps from a newly independent Scotland.  How do my British contributors feel?

Second, about the stamps.  On the left is Emmeline Pankhurst, a well know and perhaps controversial figure in the British Suffragette movement.  Here is a link to a Wikipedia entry on her life, and one from the BBC.

On the right:  I am not sure what this stamp is to commemorate.

Please join me with a stamp of your choice.


Theme next week:  se-tenant stamps.
Theme week after that: Anything you wish.

Sunday Stamps # 188

Welcome friends to Sunday Stamps, a small place on the internet where we share our love for these little pieces of paper, so everyday and yet so interesting.  At least to some people.

The theme this week is mammals.  This is the stamp I had in mind for this week.

I could have set the theme to be elephants, or big mammals :-) but I would like it to be broad enough that you could find a stamp.  This one is from China - the gold letters did not scan so well.

I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent postcard and stamp posts at

Theme next week:  Anything you wish.
Theme two weeks from now: se-tenant stamps.

I am looking for suggestions for future themes - I am pretty well out of ideas, except for themes already used - often more than once already.  Or, I can have the theme be open every week - would you like that?

Sundday Stamps # 187

Goodness, it's been a busy Saturday, with several family events.  Therefore I am putting this up late on Saturday night, USA time.  For tomorrow it is time for Sunday Stamps.

This week's theme is automobiles and motor transport, and should be an easy theme to follow.  I was inspired by a stamp I received recently:

Although an American car, the Duesenberg SJ is featured, this stamp is from the Czech Republic, as you can see.  It is nicely and delicately postmarked in the corner, from Prague.

Please join me this week with any auto or motor transport stamps you wish.  I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent quilt posts at

Theme next week;  Mammals.
Theme two week from now: anything you wish.

Sunday Stamps # 186

A somewhat rainy cloudy day here in the American Midwest.  It's back to school and school schedules for all of us.  I am finding myself exhausted by Friday afternoon!  Today I am recovered enough to put up Sunday Stamps.  Our theme this week is cultural artifacts, especially jewelry.  I was thinking of the stamp below.

I cannot read the details, and the card from South Africa has since been buried, but I believe this is a necklace from one of the native groups in South Africa.

However, feel free to interpret this theme broadly.  I hope you are able to join me this week.  Suggestions for future themes welcome, as I am running out of ideas, after 185 weeks.

Theme next week:  Automobiles and motor transport.
Theme week after that: mammals.

Sunday Stamps # 185

Well it's a busy morning here! I am going away with the family for a short vacation at a lakeside cottage and I need to get Sunday Stamps up and rolling.  Last one of the Summer.

Our theme is reptiles.  Amphibians are OK too though.

Lacerta is indeed a genus of lizards.  I was afraid my memory of this stamp was faulty and this might be a salamander!  Anyway a nice stamp from the Czech Republic, rather heavily cancelled!

Please join me this week with a reptile or amphibian.  Add your link below.

Theme next week:  Cultural artifacts, esp jewelry, but could be anything.
Theme week after that:  I'll get back to you!

Sunday Stamps # 184

Welcome back to Sunday Stamps after a week away. For me it was time to get the children ready for school and get ourselves used to a new schedule.  I am still not used to getting up so early!

We return with the easy theme of anything you wish.  Future themes are listed below.  For me, a stamp from Hellas (Greece):

Just one of many stamps that have come my way this sometimes hot August, via Postcrossing.

I hope my regular contributors come back after a week's vacation.  New people, please join us also!  Add your link below.


Theme next week: reptiles.
Theme week after that: Cultural artifacts, esp. jewelry, but could be anything.

Sunday Stamps # 183

It's the dog days of summer, and the world continues to have many problems, in the Middle East and elsewhere. August is not a slow news month this year.

Tonight though, and tomorrow, I will think about Sunday stamps, and our theme of undersea life.

These stamps are from Taiwan and show two brightly colored species of coral.  Next up:

A longnose filefish, which could be swimming around with you as you snorkel or scuba.

In these warm days (in the Northern Hemisphere) I do wish I could take the family to the beach.  It's not going to happen this year though, sadly.  So I will study these stamps.

Please join me with any stamp showing undersea life.

No Sunday stamps next week - vacation (getting children ready for school, actually.)
Theme two week's from today: anything you wish.


Saturday, August 2, 2014

Sunday Stamps # 182

It's time for Sunday Stamps!  How the weeks go by sometimes!

Our theme this week is Faraway (romantic? exotic?) places.

First, a city known for being very romantic.

I have visited Paris twice, but at both times without a significant other so I can't comment on that.  But it is a beautiful and historic city.

Next, for the exotic:

Remember, I am in the Middle West of the USA, in a staunchly Republican county, that probably has citizens suspicious of all foreigners.  And I have never traveled to Africa.  So when a Postcrossing postcard from Morocco, a new country for me, arrived in the mailbox, I was thrilled.  How exotic!  So you Moroccan residents reading can smirk along with the Parisians fighting traffic about this blog entry.  It's OK.

So... faraway? romantic? exotic?  Share a stamp from such a place.


Theme next week:  undersea life.
Theme week after that: a short vacation break - no Sunday Stamps.

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Sunday Stamps # 181

I am going to be away on a short family vacation this Saturday and Sunday, so I am preparing this week's Sunday Stamps on Friday, setting it up to open on Saturday.

Our theme this week is Open - Anything you wish.  Maybe this could include interesting stamps that are hard to fit into any theme.  That is not the case for me because I think we have had the theme of castles before.

There are always castles to be seen and to appear on stamps in Europe and other countries.  In the USA?  Not many unless you count the large castle-like homes built by very rich families in the late 1800's and early 1900's, such as George Vanderbilt's Biltmore.  And these are not likely to appear on stamps. Germany, it appears, has a never-ending supply of schlosses (and I don't mean that unkindly!)

Here is another recent arrival in my mailbox:

This stamp is from China.  Please join me in an easy theme this week, if you are not on vacation!

Theme next week: faraway (romantic? exotic?) places.
Theme week after that: undersea life.

Sunday Stamps # 180

Well what a change in the world since last Saturday.  Conflict in the Middle East has gotten much worse, and Malaysian Airlines flight 17 has gone down in a tragic way.  I don't know people involved in either situation but I think about the many who are affected by these events.

It is Saturday night so I turn from these matters to get my Sunday Stamps post up for all of you.  Our theme is Artists and illustrators.  The following stamp will be a favorite of the fans of the Laughing Cow:

This French stamp honors Benjamin Rabier (as you can read above).  According to Wikipedia (not always reliable, but we will go with it here):
Rabier was a French illustrator,comic book artist and animator. He became famous for creating La vache qui rit and is one of the precursors of animal comics. His work has inspired many other artists, notably Hergé and Edmond-François Calvo.
Rabier started to work as an illustrator for various newspapers after meeting Caran d'Ache. His first album for children was the story of Tintin Lutin, published in 1887, which told of a young lutin or "imp"; here his main characters are human and not animals, as they came to be in later albums. His most famous creations are Gideon the duck and the characters he drew for Le roman de Renart.
Please join me with any artist or illustrator.  

Theme next week: Anything you wish.
Theme week after that: faraway (romantic? exotic?) places.

Sunday Stamps # 179

It is a beautiful Saturday evening in the American Midwest, and already Sunday in some parts of the world.  Therefore, it must be time for Sunday Stamps.

Our theme this week is beautiful landscapes, which are not hard to find on stamps, if you look around a bit.
My first stamp is this one:

A flat, evergreen-covered landscape could be very boring but it looks quite attractive in this Finland stamp of a National Park.  And, then just last week, I received these stamps from  Spain, via a Postcrosser:

Stamps again showing National Parks, and some of the flora (crocus?) and fauna (wolf) of these areas.  There is great detail in these Spanish stamps!

Please join me this week if you can, with some landscape stamps, as always, interpreted broadly.

Theme next week; Artists and illustrators.
Theme week after that: open, anything you wish.

Sunday Stamps # 178

Hello hello and welcome to Sunday Stamps!

It's the evening of a beautiful day.  The World Cup games are being played.  And Americans are actually changing their gaze from baseball to soccer! (As we call it here).  And our theme is Sport.  It is a theme we have had before but I hope you have some stamps to share.  First some stamps from China:

These are stamps for the London Olympics.  I can tell because of the puzzle piece (or tectonic plates) logo, and the bizarre one eyed creature on the other stamp.

And there is this stamp from Germany:

I hope you are able to join me this week with a "sport" stamp.  Please add you link below.

Theme next week: beautiful landscapes.
Theme week after that: artists and illustrators.

Recommendations for future themes welcome!

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.

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.

Sunday Stamps # 173

Sunday stamps is going up a bit late tonight because I am just back from a house-warming party. It was a beautiful evening and a fun time.
Theme this week; Music and musical instruments.

My first contribution is this stamp from Austria.  My next selection is a stamp from Lietuva (Lithuania):

This one features the birbyne, a reeded intrument from Lithuania, and the kankles, a plucked string instrument, somewhat like a zither.  Both are new to me.  As this is a Europa stamp, I think there are other musical instrument stamps out there, from other countries.

Please  interpret this theme widely, and join me this week.  I have been very busy and unable to visit most entries last week, so I am going to do double the work this week!

Sunday Stamps # 172

This is a long Holiday weekend in the USA. I wonder if many people remember the real reason for the holiday. Now it seems like the opening weekend for summer.

I am readying this post on Thursday night before I and my family take off too on a road trip in grand American tradition.  We are traveling to a fine eastern institution of higher education to see my nephew graduate from college.  Hurrah for him!

This post will be up on Saturday afternoon.  Our theme: Share a stamp commemorating a person or event worth remembering.

An image from the US Postal Service:

From the USPS web page for this stamp:

"The War of 1812, sometimes called "the forgotten conflict," was a two-and-a-half-year confrontation with Great Britain that brought the United States to the verge of bankruptcy and disunion. 

The stamp's subject for the second year of the war is the Battle of Lake Erie, which took place on September 10, 1813. For the stamp design, the Postal Service selected William Henry Powell's famous painting, Battle of Lake Erie. The oil-on-canvas painting, completed in 1873, was commissioned by the U.S. Congress and placed at the head of the east stairway in the Senate wing of the Capitol. It depicts Oliver Hazard Perry in the small boat he used to transfer from his ruined flagship, the Lawrence, to the Niagara.

To evoke the times, the color and texture of a contemporary map of the war is used for the stamp sheet's background. 

After boarding and taking command of the Niagara, Perry attacked and demolished the British ships Detroit and Queen Charlotte. He then penned one of the most memorable phrases of the war in a report to General William Henry Harrison: "We have met the enemy and they are ours."

Perry's triumph gave the U.S. control of Lake Erie and allowed the army to recover ground lost early in the war. The British and their Indian allies abandoned their outposts on the Detroit frontier and retreated up the Thames River deeper into Upper Canada. General Harrison pursued them and won the Battle of the Thames on October 5, 1813, less than a month after Perry's remarkable victory."

I have a feeling the Canadians may have a different view of the War of 1812 and this battle!
Join me with a commemorative stamp this week.  I am traveling but I hope to visit your web pages by Monday.

Hello everyone, and welcome this week to Sunday Stamps.

Our theme this week is anything you wish.

I was happy to receive the following stamp, as it is geological.  I was even more happy to learn via Google translate, that this is an image of "the Devil's Table":

Imagine how creepy this would be at night, in the moonlight!

Sunday Stamps # 170

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Sunday Stamps.

It's a beautiful evening here in the American Midwest and Spring is definitely here.  In fact we are moving quickly into summer.  But before that, let's share some flower stamps.

Flowers are commonly found on stamps.  These flowers are actually Winter flowers, according to the US Postal Service. This image of the group of 4 stamps is from their website. Your flowers can be from any season!
