In Mac OS X Snow Leopard, is it possible to undelete accidentally deleted stickies? (The widget version, not the application version)

If you have a backup - yes. The data for all your Stickies is stored in a file called in ~/Library/Preferences/. If you wish to view the contents you'll want to make sure you have Property List Viewer installed (part of Apple's Developer Tools), use plutil to convert it from a binary plist to a standard xml plist or just use PlistBuddy.
