The U.S. Postal service will issue this stamp set on February 9, 2009 to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln. It is very fitting that our first African American President will take his oath of office 3 weeks before the Lincoln bicentennial.
Lifelong collector of antiques. Things that interest me: animals, cottage and country life, fine art, architecture, antiquarian books and prints, dogs, natural history and sporting items, gardening, photography, graphic design, humor, quotes, real estate, interior design, renovation, restoration, learning new things, electronics and technology. This blog, established in 2008, reflects my own personal taste and will never bore you. Rosemary Beck
