I received all these wonderful things from Eliska in Roztoky, Czech Republic today! I LOVE the stamps and postcards – and the tea made everything smell really nice. 🙂 The 1st postcard (the one of the red, yellow and purple sunset) Eliska actually painted. I was really amazed to read that. She’s really talented!

Sent Card #168

Coffee card 168-CZECH-jan24-stamps

Mona from Vizovice, Czech Republic said she likes colorful cards and coffee, so I sent her this one I made! 🙂 She said to write down my favorite book, so I said I really love “Murder on the Orient Express” by Agatha Christie. I “found” Agatha Christie a few months ago, and I haven’t been able to stop reading her books. They’re brilliant.

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 11 days after traveling 7,309 km! Mona wrote, “Thank you so much for your amazing card! 🙂 I absolutely love it! Agatha is best writer according my best friend too 🙂 But she “accidentally” told me point of “Murder on the Orint Express” so I have to find another her book 😀 […] Have you seen American Horror Story? First or second series? Its amazing TV show. Anyway, thank you again for amazing postcard!! “Always look on the bright side of life” Take care Mona” I haven’t watched “American Horror Story” but I’ve heard it’s quite good. I’ll have to check it out. It has some actors and actresses I really like in it!

These cards went to Eliska in Roztoky, Czech Republic. Ironically, she had sent an email asking about a swap, which I completely forgot to reply to. I happened to be clearing out my email, and remembered it and I felt really bad. A few minutes later, I decided to send some Postcrossing cards and I received her address! Weird, right? So I sent her a bunch of postcards, including the one she had wanted to swap.

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 14 days after traveling 7,040 km! Eliska wrote, “thank you so much for your wonderful envelope. 😀 You really made my day, it’s like a small Christmas before official Christmas. 🙂 And you don’t have any reason to feel bad. Now, you’ve made me so happy that I don’t know what to say. I love all postcards what you sent me.  […] Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best for you and Patrick. Take care, Eliska” That made me feel much better! 🙂 I always try to reply to swap requests, but sometimes things come up, and I just forget! Glad she was understanding!

This card went to Alesya in Gomel, Belarus! She wrote on her profile that she likes postcards of books, Harry Potter and would very much like a tea bag. So that’s what I sent! I love the new Harry Potter stamps from the USPS. 🙂

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 12 days after traveling 7,885 km! Alesya wrote, “Many thanks for your postcard and especially stamps (I so love Draco Malfoy and dream to meet Tom Felton one day), it’s amazing:) Thank u also for teabag, I’ll try it tonight. My favorite character is Snape also. […] Have a nice day and Merry Christmas!”

Favorite cheeses: Havarti, smoked Gouda & cheese curds 

Jen from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA sent me this awesome card today! If you plant the card in a little soil and water it, it will grow. 🙂 The card is made with wildflower seeds. How neat is that? There is more info here – I think I will have to order some cards, because I don’t want to “plant” Jen’s card. 🙂

And in keeping with the plant theme… I also received this card from Yevgeniya in the Czech Republic today. 🙂 Sunflowers are so pretty… I love how they follow the sun! Yevgeniya bought this card in Hannover, Germany which I think is really neat (I lived there one summer). Hannover is awesome!
