Hans Jjørgen from Horsens, Denmark sent me these 2 wonderful cards! My 1st card from Denmark! YAY! And my 1st card from Greenland. Hans Jjørgen lives 30km (18.6 miles) from Juelsminde, and he said it’s a city of about 4,000 people and it’s known for its beach. I love the “skole” (school) stamp most of all! 🙂 I sent Hans Jjørgen the cards below:

Interdictio” from Moscow, Russia said she likes maps (like me 🙂 ) so she sent this card. She said the green stamp is of Ромашка (romashka) which I think means chamomile in English. 🙂

I sent Hsu Ju the following:

Hsu Ju said she wanted the Richmond State Capitol Grounds card, but I noticed she had also favorited the Wisconsin card with the barn, so I thought I’d send it to her as a surprise. 🙂 She also mentioned on her Postcrossing profile that she collects tickets, and I sent her 2 that I had. One from “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (amazing movie!!!) and the other from the “Les Misérables” movie. 🙂

Received Card #197


Mayo from Sapporo, Japan sent me this cool card from the Victoria and Albert Museum. She said she really wants to visit the US – especially White Sands, New Mexico. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of White Sands! I had to look it up. It looks so beautiful: just like a desert but the sand is white. It looks like snow has fallen on a desert. I’d love to go there! 🙂

I love this cheese card! 🙂 It’s a photo of Camembert. Nara from Germany sent it to me, and said her favorite cheese right now is mozzarella with tomatoes, salt, pepper and olive oil! Yum!!!


The Henderson family from Calgary, Canada sent me this cute card, with adorable stickers! 🙂 They said their cousin is Jim Henderson who is a Milwaukee Brewer! That’s so amazing! I’m not a huge sports fan, but being from Wisconsin, I try to follow the Brewers and Packers, as best I can. 🙂
