Water Lily Forever Stamps seen on CBS This Morning!

6 07 2015

Thanks to my eagle-eyed cousin, Deanna, who just shared that my water lily stamps made an appearance on CBS This Morning in a philatelic-themed feature! I missed it the first time I viewed the video (click on the link below). See the former Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe signing a page with the stamps at 3:32! Thanks for sharing, Deanna!

Anderson, U.S. Postal Service Northern Ohio District Manager, and I got to unveil a giant poster with the water lily stamps (Third photo, shot by my dear friend Michael Powell).
