Stunning Sugar Skull

Hello, Halloween lovers, it's the witching month!

I am not sure how I managed to not blog this amazing envelope when Cathy sent it in 2017, but it is worth the wait. Inside a protective plastic cover...



..and unwrapped.




And it came with a nice autumnal card inside.

US Flags from Fafa

Fabienne sent me this envelope last year. The house mail monster hid it from me for a while. It seems to be the perfect mail to post today - there's even a US flag on the French stamp.

This exchange envelope from Jean is the perfect one for the first day of summer.

L is for Lighthouse

I received a great lighthouse stamp on this package from Taiwan.



It features Anping lighthouse, which is located in Southern Taiwan and was built in 1965. Technically it is a light tower, however it is usually referred to as a lighthouse.

K is for Korea

I received mail art from Kim who lives in the Republic of Korea, although in most of the English-speaking world it is referred to as South Korea.





The stamps celebrate the Lunar Year of the Pig. While both are great, the one made up of reflective circles is my favorite. The other has some gold highlights.











Hard to capture in a photo or a scan, so in a first for Sunday Stamps on this blog, I tried for a video.

J is for JFK

Eva sent me this little glassine envelope with some interesting postage.



I've featured the egg stamp in the past. The irregularly-shaped JF Kennedy stamp comes from a mini-sheet issued by Correos that covered events of the 60s.


I like the moon landing footprint stamp on this sheet.



Inside was this fascinating card. I showed another one from this series in the past.
