Cards and stamps
1475 - a lovely miniature sheet of stamps from Katya in Ukraine. And this was the card -
1477 - Storz Fountain, Memorial Building, Joslyn Art Museum, USA. This is one of Omaha's many attractions and a favourite with Danielle.
1478 - And Colom's Market in Valencia is a favourite with Eva.
1479 - A Czech map from Pavel. It is one of six cards that a group of Czech Postcrossers printed at their own expense.
I love this stamp -
1484 - This is from a different Katya, one from Russia -
This painting is by Vasiliy Tropinin (1780-1857), a wonderful Russian artist that I hadn't come across before. Thanks Katya, not just for the card but for introducing me to Tropinin.
1485 - Arianne put one or two stamps on her envelope and the dreaded franking machine didn't obliterate them.
1485 - A postcrossing stamp, this on from Victoria in Belarus -
1488 - Miseme from Spain sent me Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn. Well, a photo of them!
And finally, for this post, a number of Ukrainian stamps from a set that I think is very attractive.
