Merve from Ankara, Turkey always has the best cards and messages for me! πŸ™‚ I adore this New York card, and the airmail themed Eskişehir, Turkey card. The heart shaped stamp is also super amazing. πŸ™‚

I sent Merve these cards last November:

Catching up with Merve!

I just got this beautiful card from Merve today. She is my Turkish penpal. πŸ™‚ It’s a UNICEF card of a textile from Pakistan and I think it’s beautiful! The stamps from Turkey are so cool. I love stamps with food on them! They’re such an unusual sight here in the USA. The airmail sticker is also neat and the Band-Aid reminds me of an iPod ad! πŸ™‚

I sent Merve this stuff back in May (homemade card, bookmarks, calendar, Band-Aids, postcard):

Merve sent me this birthday card in June:

And I had sent her this Snoopy card in August! πŸ™‚ (Merve’s 1st letter to me said she loved Halloumi cheese… which I tried and ABSOLUTELY LOVED. I had a cookout and tried frying it on a grill. It was amazing. πŸ™‚ So that’s my picture with Halloumi, sausage and veggies! πŸ™‚ I found it at Trader Joe’s in the US. I really recommend it. Amazing cheese that doesn’t melt on a grill. It’s also great cold!)
