I sent this card to Michele of Lake Stevens, Washington, USA. The card is from the beautiful Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden here in Richmond, Virginia. She had written on her profile that she likes nature and reading, so I told her that I love Stephen King & Agatha Christie, and am currently reading, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”.
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 5 days after traveling 2,338 miles! Michele wrote: “…thank you for the beautiful card. I love it! If I ever get to VA I will definitely go to Lewis Ginter. It seems like we are sharing reading lists! Steven King has been my favorite author since I was a kid. I am currently reading Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple collection and just finished reading all the Poirot mysteries by her. I really enjoy most of them. And I read the Magic of Tidying Up about 6 months ago, changed my life! It’s like we’re reading twins! […]” Michele has great taste in books! 🙂
Favorite cheese: Feta, Gorgonzola, White Cheddar, Cojita, Gruyère
Michelle from Bremerton, Washington sent me this beautiful, glittery card from Seattle! I love it. I also love the washi tape she added to it. 🙂
Awww! My dad is currently in Seattle, Washington, USA and he sent me a postcard. He is loving Seattle and said it’s very busy with lots of things to do. I can’t wait to go there someday!
A few people contacted me about swapping postcards over the past 6 months, and I was more than happy to. I sent their cards off, and I emailed them when I received their card. However I haven’t heard back from, so I still don’t know if they’re gotten my cards, but I’m going to assume they did by now since it’s been so long. I’m guessing they got busy with life, or maybe there was a problem with email. So if they read this, and didn’t get their cards, I’d be happy to resend them! 🙂
Lily lives in Washington, DC, USA, and she noticed that I’d favorited this “zebra” card of hers. She emailed me on Christmas Day 2013, and said she’d like to send it to me, since it was “Christmas and all :)” I thought that was really sweet! 🙂 She picked up the postcard in Kharkiv, Ukraine, and it’s an ad for a bookstore. I sent Lily the Chicago World’s Fair card that she liked in return.
Alisson from São Paulo, Brazil contacted me in February, 2014. He really liked my Harley-Davidson postcard that I’ve sent before and that he saw in the Postcrossing gallery. He sent me this lovely card of São Paulo, and really interesting stamp!!! I’m guessing it’s the automated type you get at a machine from the post office? I’m not really sure, but it’s unique, and I like that. 🙂
I had swapped with Liu Jie once before. I was really excited she asked me to swap again, since Asian shape cards are really expensive and difficult to get – because they are simply beautiful! 🙂 From what I’ve learned via Postcrossing, shape cards in Asia are 2 or 3 times the cost of a normal postcard, and the postage is about 3 times as much. I so sent Liu Jie 8 cards for her 2.
This Virginia mapcard went to Olga in Redmond, Washington, USA! She is a librarian which I thought was really interesting, so I asked her some questions about her job.
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 6 days after traveling 3,773 km! Olga thanked me for the card, and answered all of my questions, which was really, really sweet of her! 🙂
Laura in Bellevue, Washington, USA contacted me about swapping. She was making a birthday gift for her friend Sergey and was looking for US postcards that had the state name on them. I gladly said yes! 🙂 What a cool birthday day gift! She had a list of postcards I could pick from and I chose this one from the movie “300”. I’m a huge movie (and Gerard Butler) fan so this was perfect for me. 🙂
This is the card (and sticker) I sent Laura (for Sergey 🙂 )
