On a unique Spanish stamp, an actual seed! Thanks go to Eva who sent this unusual stamp some time ago. And for getting me hooked on Sunday Stamps! And bonus S on the same postcard some selvage (?) showing youth sports.
I bought a set of envelopes with vintage stamps in a 'masculine' theme from Edelweiss post. I had wanted to send one to Eric, so I had to wait until I could make up the international postage with two modern stamps that had a similar color palette. I'll leave it up to you to make the connections to the P themes and the stamps.
Via Katerina's prompt, I took part in Georgia's wonderful Art in a Box project - 20 artists creating 20 pieces of art approximately 6 x 8 inches, with each artist receiving a box at the end. I think that this is the second edition, with the theme Summer. Here is the great cover art on the box.
And Georgia's mermaid contribution.
More of the beautiful art inside coming up in future posts.
In 2002 USPS issued a set of 34c stamps (the cost of a 1st class letter back then) in the style of postcards for each of the 50 states. I've only received one of them, sent recently as the postcard rate is now 34c.
Heleen has sent me some amazing stamps issued by PostNL over the years. Most of the stamps she has sent me have been shown on my blog as part of her wonderful envelopes, but a few escaped the full treatment, so here they are. Here is one showing a pair of hares from my favorite December Stamps set, plus one featuring a stray cat. Bob, if you are looking for a connection to last week's letter M, the photo was taken on Morocco.
And here is one showing a chicken, with some great bonus details in the selvage.
