Philatelic Friday: Stamps From China

Another week draws to a close, and once again it is time for a new edition of my Philatelic Friday series. This week I'm featuring Stamps from China. It seemed like a good follow up to the last Sunday Art Review: Chinese Sampler. I've always liked Chinese dragons, and was delighted to find a stamp adorned with a festive dragon. It is the perfect stamp to open today's Philatelic Friday post on Stamps from China. Being a casual student of philately, I enjoy collecting and comparing postage stamps from various countries around the world. Some of the Chinese stamps are quite colorful and decorative, as one would expect. The following stamps represent a good variety of styles and designs. Enjoy~

Thanks for stopping by today's Philatelic Friday. Have a great weekend!

This is really a well laid out Blog. I like how you have presented your information in excellent detail. In fact not to sound like a commercial but if I were you I would go to http://www.autosurfmonster.com and submit this blog, so thousands of others can see it for free. I have a few of my own blogs on there and I get a lot of traffic from them. Anyways I have added your blog to my favorites and I look forward to all the updates.
