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?
In her later years, my great aunt Laverne gave me her extensive postage stamp collection. She collected releases printed in the USA - mainly between the 1950s - 1980s. I now add newly released USA postage stamps, and international ones 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?
I want to put these little works of art on display where the design and stories can be told through mini themed curated collections.
How do you come up with the collection themes?
My collections are inspired by current events, holidays, weather, or mood. So... 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 collection, I sometimes realize I am coming up short of qualified stamp candidates to fit the theme. 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!
