Pink Postage Stamps

Today is Pink Saturday. It's about a large group of bloggers posting something PINK on the same day each week, Saturday. Beverly spearheads the growing list of participants which is above 130 bloggers. Visit How Sweet The Sound for a complete list. My contribution this week is several pink stamps, located in a stamp collecting book I've given to Madame. Some were collected by me, some were given to me and some are baggies full I've purchased at flea markets. Madame's project now!

Air mail...Is there such a thing now a days?



This one has a post mark of 1976, the post mark is pink!


Pretty graphic from Peru





To help fund the war? From Trinidad & Tobago





A hard working woman from Jugoslavija






A pink president






Did you ever believe the Army & Navy would have a pink stamp, yep, for defense.



Disclaimer-prices may vary, alot cheaper than today's stamps, that is...C&G Design

Love your pink stamps...I always ask the postmaster to see the "pretty" stamps when I go in to purchase some. I really like the one from Peru.

Hi Dawn....I love the stamps. Postage stamps are little bits of art, and so varied. I too, love the stamp from Peru..the graphics are beautiful. The pink war stamps seem unusual to me...you would think they would have been in army green or navy blue or red, white, and blue. We are still in a deep freeze over here, and now bracing for a winter storm tomorrow. My sister left today, but we had a lot of fun...thrift stores, Joanne Fabrics, lunch. Thank goodness for sister! Hugs XO
