Braying Fellas

Before a break, these guys have something to say...maybe 'farewell, but I will see you again' :)  Not before long this blog will come alive again like it usually does in the late spring - I haven't realised this many postcards have piled up on my desk, I am pretty excited to show them as soon as I can! (and then we can slowly progress to a number of 30000 of visits, and another lottery, yay ;))
Thank you Monika and Newelen for the cards :))

Jack Daniel's Rye

A surprise whiskey card - thanks Bryon! Havent tried JD's Rye yet, but  after discovering their Honey Bourbon...my world hasnt been the same :)
I have always wanted to include these in Sunday Stamps, and with today's open theme the time has come...three from the USPS set of 5 Arctic Animals stamps issued in 1999, showing grey wolf, arctic hare and arctic fox (other two being snowy owl and polar bear). Can animals be more beautiful than this? Its very sad to think their natural habitat is shrinking fast...
Other free choices of stamps here!

Ukraine Borscht Map

The eyes of the world are directed to Ukraine these days, and not for a good reason...In hope things will resolve for the best in this beautiful country, I am posting a map of their regional soup specialty, and wonderful illustration stamps (2008) of Ukrainian traditions - holiday of Holy Transfiguration and christening in Crimea, wedding ceremony and Harvest Festival in Dnipropetrovsk. 
Are thoughts are with you Ukraine!
