Sunday Stamps II 139

Sunday Stamps is now up to the letter B.

I admit I searched the US Postal Service website first,  and found this great series of round stamps:

All sorts of Balls!  Football, Volleyball, soccer ball (for us in the USA),  golf ball,
and baseball, basketball, tennis ball, and playground ball (though I remember ours in red, not pink).  These stamps are for 1st class USA postage, not international.

I have a page on Facebook: "Like" me and keep up with my infrequent  stamp, postcard, and quilt posts at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Viridian61/347674418583948?ref=hl

Sunday Stamps II 138

This week marks an A to Z progression for the rest of the year (and beyond?) for Sunday Stamps.  Stamps from countries that begin with A, themes that begin with A, and so on. Our fearless leader has led with an Airmail stamp.

I am joining in with a stamp featuring pottery from a Native American pueblo, the Acoma pueblo:


This is from a set from a few years ago.  This is one of my favorite styles of Southwest pottery; I love the black and white patterns that are used.

I will probably check this series again at the end, for (I hope) a Zuni pueblo pot.

Sunday Stamps II 137

Our theme today is stars/moons/ planets.

No one has yet shared this set, recently released by the US Postal Service:


(the scan is from the USPS too) The eight planets (no Pluto - it has its own stamp)  looking very pretty.  Or weird, Jupiter and Uranus are in false color and look strange to me.

Sunday Stamps II 133

Good day from Viridian on the road, at my parents house!  But I have my computer and can participate in Sunday Stamps.

I was looking for a USA tall ships stamp and I admit I cheated and used google image search to find this one - it's a little bit older:

But a classic, of the USS Constitution.  Also known as "Old Ironsides", it is now berthed in Boston, Massachusetts.  The museum there has a website.  The ship is being restored and will return to the water on July 23 this year.

An Entry for Sunday Stamps.
