SHOW & TELL #6 - Stamp Plate

Happy Show & Tell Friday. I am once again participating in Kelli's S&T. Join the fun and sign up on Mr. Linky here.

Today I am showing a decoupaged plate that I bought when we were traveling in Canada. I bought it at a garage sale we stopped at. This was purchased by me in 1999 but since most of the stamps have 1964-65 dates on them and the price ranged around 5-6 cents I believe it was done in the later 60's.

It contains a total of 46 stamps. The two center stamps are Hemisfair '68 (which was held in San Antonio, Texas) and Indiana Sesquicentennial 1966.

On the outer edge of special interest to me, and the reason I bought the plate. are John Fitzgerald Kennedy and the eternal flame - 6 cent & First Man on the Moon - air mail 10 cents.

On the second row from the outer edge is New York Worlds Fair 1964-1965 - 5 cents.

This plate sets, among many other items, on my kitchen plate rail above the cabinets.
Thanks for letting me share yet another item that has memories for us and makes our house our home.
We are going to be picking up granddaughter Oksana and grandson Aric from school today and they will be with us until late Sunday. We are looking forward to is. Daughter, Suzette, and Oksana & I are going to have a "girls day out" for manicures, pedicures and lunch on Saturday. FUN!!!
I attended meetings with Rodney Howard-Browne on Monday, Wednesday & Thursday nights. I did not get home until around 11 each night. They were wonderful, and glorious!!!! If you EVER get a chance to hear him be sure and go.
I didn't go Tuesday night because I went to our Bible Study at my friends house. Mickey finally got to attend with me last night and we took some other friends, David and Kathy, with us. Tonight we are already committed to a church friends 40th BD celebration so we'll miss tonight. One of those times you'd like to be in 2 places at once!!!!

Have a wonderful week-end and be sure and attend church.

What a neat plate. I've never seen anything like it before.
Have a great girls night - it sounds fun!

Joy said...

That plate is so cool. I've never seen anything like it.

I have some stamps I collected as a child. They came in on letters sent to our church from missionaries around the world.
Maybe I could do something along that line.

I think that is pretty neat to find a plate with such treasures on it at a garage sale!!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! We have another busy one ahead of us! :)

What an interesting S&T, and such a good idea to use the collectors stamps like this!

Have a fun girl's day out with your loved ones tomorrow!

I have posted my orchids today if you would like to visit.

Sounds like you have a fun day planned for Sat. with the girls. Enjoy your time together.

Christine said...

What a great plate and what a wonderful idea as well. I will have to take a look around here...I have a bunch of old stamps I have held onto and in all honesty this would be a much better way to display them instead of the book they are in.

Sohailah said...

how cool is that! My mom is a stamp collector - I love the ones you described on your plate.

love you!

Love the bowl. I just love things like that.

Don't forget your camera when you go with the girls today ;)

Susie said...

Loved seeing the plate full of so much history. You have so many fun unique items. Have fun with the girls. I love mani's and pedi's, even though it has been quite a while for me. Trying to be debt free cancels out a lot of that right now. Take care, and sorry I haven't been by in a while.

I have found some of my most treasured items at garage sales and antique malls. You never know what you are going to come across.
The plate is really neat.
I hope my favorite blogger is having a good weekend. I have sent you email, don't know if you have received it.

What fascinating idea for a plate. I have never seen one like it. I'll have to enlarge it and take a better look at the stamps.

Several years ago during the Tornto Revival, my sister and I visited many churches to learn more about it. We never had the opportunity to see Rodney Howard Brown in person but I have seen videos of the revival and still see him on TV occassionally. He is a wonderful teacher.
It blesses me to know you like him too.

Kelli said...

Since I collect stamps I love your plate! Very fun and unique!

Nadine said...

What an interesting plate. I like the idea of the stamps on them - sometimes people find the neatest treasures at yard sales.

Sounds like a great time for a "girls" day out. Have great fun.
