Vintage Thingy Thurs: vintage stamps

I recently received a postcard via the Postcrossing project, with three older stamps on it.  Each of these was, once upon a time, a stamp for first class postage.  When did it cost 29 cents to send a first class letter?  The late 1980's perhaps? A nice mineral stamp would do.  Well then, when was it 10 cents to send a letter?  Harder to answer!  But there is another mineral stamp, a pretty tourmaline crystal on it.
And then going waaaayy back, when was it 5 cents to post a letter?  This might even be before my time!!

If you like new or old stamps, perhaps you'd like to join me in my meme, Sunday Stamps, on my other blog, Viridian's Postcard blog. We share interesting or pretty stamps and tell what stories we have about them.  You don't have to be a stamp collector, just be interested in stamps.  Look for a posting on Saturday evening, USA eastern time.

I am joining Coloradolady for Vintage Thingy Thursdays - see what other fun things people are sharing.

Pink Saturday March 12

This is block # 5 from the Nearly Insane book, based on an antique quilt maded by Salinda Rupp.  I finished it last week, and it's perfect for Beverly's theme of pink and green.

Nearly Insane Half-blocks

Time to make some half-blocks, so I am ready to set the quilt blocks.  I have over 20 blocks done, which is a great start!
