Postage stamp spotlight: Winter feels

Here we are with another Stamp Spotlight post, where I curate a themed collection of postage stamps from the archive.

Happy December! We're feelin' you winter! ❄️🥶🌬️This set of stamps is inspired by the low temps outside.

From the middle to top left, clockwise:

Moose - USA - 1978

Save Mountain Habitats - USA - 1981

White House Conference on Aging - USA - 1971

Arctic Animals: Arctic Fox - USA - 1999

Polar Lights: Aurora Australis - USA - 2007

VIII Olympic Winter Games - USA - 1960

It was nice to stay inside where it is warm and cozy - and take out the stamp collection and see if I could find a winter theme. This curated collection of stamps is your reminder to bundle up and stay warm. ☕️

My postage stamp collection FAQs

When did you start collecting postage stamps?

I inherited my Great Aunt Laverne’s stamp collection. She began by sending loose stamps and eventually sent the main binder. She only collected stamps from the USA, with most being from between the late 1950s to mid-1990s. I now add international issues as well.

Do you like postage stamps?

I have always been fascinated with postage stamps. Each one is a tiny work of art. Plus, just about every country in the world has them! It's a small window into other cultures and lands.

Why curate these postage stamp collections?

It took me some time to decide what to do with the collection. I knew I wanted to share the design and stories stamps tell which morphed into curating mini visually themed collections. You can see these collections on my Instagram @collectedstamps

How do you come up with the collection themes?

My collections are inspired by current events, holidays, weather, mood... or just what inspires me in the moment. Have an idea for a postage stamp theme? Send me a message!

Where do you acquire new postage stamps?

When curating for a theme, I sometimes realize I am coming up short of stamps to fit the collection. To satisfy the vision, I source new postage stamps via Postcrossing or eBay. Have new or used postage stamps you want donate? Drop me a note!
