Women Alphabet | 2

Jovita Ídar, Educator and Journalist, 1885-1946
Dolores Huerta, Activist, Born 1930

*Huelga means 'strike'

Florence Griffith Joyner, Athlete, 1959-1998
Billie Jean King, Atlete, born 1943

Maybe you have noticed that the stamps on the first envelope match with the birthplaces of the women on the postcards: Idár was born in Laredo, Texas, and Huerta was born in Dawson, New Mexico.

However, the matching is even greater on the second envelope. Not only because the theme (two more athletes on the stamps, including the great tennis player Maureen Connolly). Also... there is a tennis match on the envelope, right know! This is a very very clever way of sticking the stamps, don't you think so?

Postcards sent by Phillip (the USA).

  1. Very clever, great idea of Phillip!
    And the postmark waves add speed to the tennis ball :-)

  2. Phillip has provided a nice postal game of tennis. I always enjoy a set of alphabet cards.

    1. Me too, I love the alphabet porjects, you know ;)

  3. So nice to see these again. I had fun deciding on the stamps.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
