Rural for Sunday Stamps

This stamp on an envelope from Elke shows a bend in the river Moselle, featuring a small town surrounded by fields. I do like the little postal horn on the postmark.

It is from a series promoting tourism that shows Germany's most beautiful panoramas. Here is the whole view, of which I only have the left half. I was unable to find the town's name on the web.

I love the simplicity of this exchange envelope from Jean, along with the vintage stamps.

Meilleurs champignons pour 2020!

A great 2020 card arrived this week from Fabienne.

I like the mushrooms wishing me health, luck, fortune, love, joy and happiness.

I also love the stamps, part of a set titled Fantastique, which they absolutely are. Fafa sent me two others from the set already. And I enjoyed the (drunk?) franking machine's efforts.

Should I be eating more fruit from France this year?

Thanks for the lovely sending, Fafa.

Postcards from Spain

Some fun postcards that Eva sent me last year with various topics.


A beautiful house with lots of stairs

Mice... of the postal adventuring variety (Mus morrisi)...

...and of the grammatically correct variety (Mus grammaticus)!

Have you received any fun topics on postcards recently?

Cascadia Artpost

In from Cascadia Artpost.

This mail art mimics those place mats at local diners that are covered in small local ads.

Flags for Sunday Stamps

I received this stamp a few years ago.

It was issued in 1989 and commemorates Finland's membership of the European Council.

There are 4 Finnish flags, one EU flag, and an assortment of flags spelling out the word Europe, although the main feature is a set of bridges.

Explore the links to more flags on postage at Sunday Stamps.
