Apologies for my absence for Sunday Stamps (health, medical) ... internet woes, but all is back up and on-line now.

Sunday Stamps II - 17

issued 2013  with a value of €0.58 (at the time of issue)
part of the series 'workhorses of our regions' in this case the Gironde region
but there is man working behind the horse as they make their way between the rows of vines which will eventually become Bordeaux wine. I'm not sure what the man is supposed to be doing, but he is diminutive compared to his working horse!

the graphic design is by Elodie Dumoulin

for people at work

also sharing with Sepia Saturday for horses (pure co-incidence, especially since I forgot!)

Sunday Stamps II - 16

2014 Happy Easter
designed by cartoonist Peter Gaymann.
Apparently chickens feature prominently in P Gay's drawings, and this one is getting a design plan (entwurf) from a rabbit for a decorated egg. I must admit, it took me a moment to see what was happening, so focused was I on the Frohe Ostern! Mr Gaymann has been drawing cartoons for over 30 years and you can find quite an extensive selection on google, but the captions are all in a written font  (as the above Frohe Ostern, but usually much smaller), which I found almost impossible to decipher.
It is also interesting to note that in Europe it is an adult rabbit, whereas here in North America, it is a cute, little bunny that brings the Easter eggs.

for Easter
