Mailbox Monday

Before March comes to a close I wanted to draw attention to the celebration taking place during this month on Women's History. The photo is a stamp that commemorated the 1848 Seneca Falls Woman's Rights Convention which essentially began the women's rights social fight in the United States.

I just love stamps because they hold so much history on such a small piece of glued paper. I'm not a collector, but I do love to look at some of the history through the ages.

This week in my mailbox I received:
A series of Chris Knopf books, thanks to The Permanent Press
The Last Refuge
Two Time
Hard Stop
Head Wounds
The Obama Revolution by Alan Kennedy-Shaffer
The Dakota Cipher by William Dietrich
Fifty is Not a Four Letter Word, by Linda Kelsey
Beyond the Revolution by William H. Goetzmann
Uncle Tom's Cabin for American History Class

I hope everyone is anxiously getting ready for the spring equinox. Yippee!!!!
My bulbs are coming up and I planted over one hundred in the fall, possibly more.
Have a great week everyone.

You certainly have enough books to keep you busy. I've always wanted to read Uncle Tom's Cabin. I find stamps fascinating, too, and I'm not a collector either.

I bet you're enjoying your bulbs popping up! We have daffodils that are poking their stalks out of the ground (they seem to grow an inch a day this time of year!)

Thanks for sharing the facts about the stamp and women's history month. My daughter used to "collect" stamps because they were pretty (they can be!), and would find a little info about the history of the stamp to add to her album.
