Sunday Stamps II 126

It's a beautiful day in the American Midwest, and it's Mother's day too.  Let's hope the children behave today.

The theme this week at Sunday Stamps is Commemorative stamps, and I have one that the US Postal service will be issuing later this year:

This is in honor of Henry David Thoreau.  His best known book is Walden.  More on his life can be found at the Thoreau Society webpage.  More can be found on his Wikipedia page.

Sunday Stamps II 125

Good afternoon from the American Midwest!  I am late in getting my Sunday Stamps post up but it is still Sunday, so I can still participate.

This week's theme is places of worship.  I have not featured church stamps on my blog before, and did not feel like digging through all my old postcards so it was off to Zazzle for a look.  For Americans, Zazzle is a place on the internet where you can design your own USA legal postage and have it printed up.  You do pay more than face value for the stamps, but it's a way to obtain unique postage.

Here is a stamp I found there:

This is the rose window in Notre Dame in Paris, and appropriate for today I think!

Sunday Stamps II 123

Happy week after Easter.  And Spring is truly here in the American Midwest.

The theme this week for Sunday Stamps is lighthouses or windmills.  I just happen to have a stamp from Germany that I have shared before, some time ago:

Very much in the middle of the water!

Sunday Stamps II 122

Happy Easter!

I do have stamps with an Easter connection, that I have shared on my blog previously.

From the US Postal Service:
"The U.S. Postal Service commemorates the 500th anniversary of the naming of Florida with the release of the La Florida (Forever®) stamps that celebrate the state's floral abundance. During the Easter season of 1513, Spanish explorers first visited the state we now know as Florida. They named the land “La Florida” for Pascua Florida (“Feast of the Flowers”), Spain's Easter celebration, and for the verdant display of vegetation that they could see from their ship.

The four se tenant stamps contain a cascade of blossoms that evokes the feeling of a tropical garden. Each stamp shows a particular variety of flower: red and pink hibiscus; yellow cannas; morning glories in white, red, and shades of purple; and white and purple passionflowers."

So there is an Easter connection!
