The Year of the Snake

I don't believe I've seen snake shaped snowmen before, but from Japan came this Happy New Year postcard with snakes building a snowman in their likeness.  On the reverse was this stamp:

I'm not entirely sure what it is but you can at least see a snake there.

Another card from Taiwan recently arrived with a Year of the Snake motif:

This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"


  1. What interesting postcards and stamps. I wonder what else you will come across in the guise of a snake.

  2. Hope you get the computer problems fixed soon and without too much frustration.
    Cute card of snakes building a snake snowman , how clever!
    Thank you for joining in, even with troubles.

  3. The postcard design would have made a lovely stamp.

  4. The snake snowman (such a strange juxtaposition, snakes in the snow, rather than baking in the heat) is super cute!

  5. I'm late as well and can't match these stamps. Great card.

    I missed the linky list this week but you can see mine at

  6. Only the Japanese could make snakes seem cute. The Taiwan ones are nice too.

  7. to me snake and snowman dont really go together...snowman remind me of a beautiful winter day, and snakes of...well something totally different :)


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
