So funny! Michael from South Carolina asked me to swap in January, so I agreed and we had a great swap. 🙂 Today I received another card from him, because he got my address randomly via Postcrossing! I LOVE the stamp he put on the envelope! And the cancellation came out beautifully! I’ve seen this cancellation many times but this is the best I’ve been able to cut off an envelope!

Swap #22

Artemiy from Novorossijsk, Russia asked me to swap – he liked my Virginia mapcard. We both sent our cards in late February, but he received mine 2 weeks later, and I received his 2 months later! The postal service is such a mystery to me! 🙂 I wish I could walk around that little Russian village in the postcard – it looks so peaceful and comforting!

Michelle in Tainan, Taiwan sent me this cool card of hot springs. I’m in love with the food stamps! The one in the middle is Gong Bao Chicken and the one on the right is Mud Crab with Glutinous Rice Cake. I love these stamps so much, I actually went to ebay.com and bought the whole mint strip right after I registered the card! 🙂

Here’s the whole group of “Signature Taiwan Delicacies Postage Stamps”. They were released on Jan. 31, 2013 (so quirky!):
