I received so many postcards today! I love days like today! 🙂
Päivi from Peräseinäjoki, Finland sent me this super cute card of cows! And, she included a few stamps for me! I LOVE them! Especially the Santa ones. 🙂 She said she lives on a farm and has 7,000 hens! Wow!!!
Favorite cheese: Tomme Blanche (traditional cheese usually made in the Alps)
Carole lives near Perpignan, France and sent me a card with two of my loves on it: ice skating and cheese. It’s wonderful! 🙂 Who knew such a card existed! 🙂
Kent from Hong Kong sent me this very colorful card, and equally colorful and beautiful stamp! 🙂 He lives there with his wife, son and 2 cats!
Karolina from Poznań, Poland sent this neat card of her hometown. It looks like there’s a lot of interesting things to see and do there!
Favorite cheese: Leerdammer (similar to Emmental)
Silke is a biologist from Northern Germany, and lives near the Baltic Sea. The painting is called “Die Witwe und das Junge Elternpaar” which means “The Widow and the Young Parents”. Such pretty stamps!
Lo-Wing from Hong Kong asked me to swap over the summer, and I forgot to post about it. It was truly an amazing swap! We exchanged several stamps, and I’m forever grateful for the ones she sent me! She also made two postcards for me from stamps and laminated them – such a neat idea! Thank you such much Lo-Wing! 🙂
Jessica from Hong Kong loves history, so I sent her this card from the White House of the Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia. I also added some Civil War themed stamps and wrote a little bit about the Civil War!
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 7 days after traveling 13,277 km! Jessica wrote, “Thank you so much for the postcard! So historical, I love it so much! It is so cute to know such history and the stamps are beautiful! If you don’t mind giving your address to me, I would like to send you a postcard to thank you.” Aw! I’m so glad she liked the card. What a really sweet response! 🙂
Inga from Klaipedos, Lithuania likes mapcards so I sent her one of Virginia. She asked on her profile to write down my favorite quote, so I told her mine is “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” (Luke 6:31) I also like “Genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.”(Thomas Edison)
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 7 days after traveling 7,160 km! Inga wrote, “Thank you sooo much for the beautiful map postcard and nice stamps. I love it. The quote from the Bible is my favorite too. Nice to meet you in postcrossing!”
This pretty watercolor postcard is from Kathy in Hong Kong. I LOVE the guinea pig stamp!!! 😀
Aleksandra from Nowy Sącz, Poland sent me this card of Kraków, because she said her city doesn’t have any interesting cards. Hahhha 🙂 I send cards from other cities too, because I think the ones where I live are boring. She recommended a singer called “Iron & Wine”, who I’ve never heard of, but I mentioned him to a friend and he said he was good.
Birgit in Kirchlengern, Germany sent me this card of her hometown. 🙂
Yan from Hong Kong studies printing & publishing and wants to be a writer. She contacted me about swapping me for my Postcrossing airmail card. She said she also collects stamps! Yay! She asked me how many to send and I told her I’d send as many as she sent me. 🙂 She sent me all these fabulous things on April 22, and today she received my letter.
Above is a card Yan made with stamps. I think she laminated it. I LOVE it. Such a great idea. I’m definitely going to try to make something like this. And I adore the stamp – and postmark – on it.
This is a brochure and postcard (and stamp on the back of the card) Yan received at the Hong Kong Stamp Exhibition that she just when to.
She also sent me some airmail stickers because I collect them. And above are the stamps she used on the envelope.
Yan sent me a TON of fantastic stamps, and these are some of my favorites. They are all awesome though!
Above is a brochure and postcard from the National Postal Museum I sent to Yan, and below are the other postcards I sent. I also sent her a bunch of stamps and a bookmark I made from stamps. 🙂 SUCH A GREAT SWAP!
