Sunday Stamps - Children: USA, Great Britain

 In 2001 a series of 4 stamps were issued for the New Millennium, Rights of The Child in the form of face paintings.

Great Britain - 16 January 2001
Flower Nuture Children

If you stretch 'Youth' to mean children then the centenary of the ELKS organisation will fit the theme.

USA - 1 May 1968

Sunday Stamps - Deep Blue Sea: Greece, Malaysia

 This theme proved more difficult than I expected if only to avoid stamps shown before.

Greece - 28 June 1969

Ship were the subject of the series but there is no missing that blue sea.

In Malaysia it was islands and beaches that caught my eye with a least an under water view in this case.

Malaysia - 17 November 2016

For more the deep blue just dip into the links at swimmers on Sunday Stamps.

Sunday Stamps - Different Fonts/Scripts: Iceland

 When in Norway I found out about various sagas. I heard of some from Iceland but never saw or read any. And this week's stamps have set me off looking for what they were.

Iceland - 1 October 1953

Iceland - 20 March 1970

It looks like a long job to identify what they are.

A-Z Challenge 2021 - Theme Reveal - Photo Shots

I've decided to raid my photo archive for this year's challenge as it's easier that writing a post each day.

It's probable that dogs, birds and holiday locations will figure more that once.

For now you will just have to contain you excitement with this.

The slot is not for posting comments!

Sunday Stamps - World Heritage Sites : Canada

 I have three stamps issued on 31 March 2014 showing some of Canada's World Heritage Sites. 

I have enlarged them as they are some of the smallest stamps I've seen.

Gros Morne National Park (Newfoundland & Labrador)

Nahanni National Park (North West Territory)

Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks (Alberta & British Columbia)

I presume the dotted lines on these are some form of franking - a petty to spoil the stamps this way.
