Postcards: 3/29

Lots of postcards today!

Beautiful shot of Cleveland from Tanya

Adorable baby picture of Donald Duck from Minna in Sweden

Funny animal card from Ukraine. Somehow I can't see my cat dressing up and going to the beach.

Thanks to Ekaterina in Virginia for this neat card

All four of these cards come from a private swap with Yvonne from Florida. The two bottom cards are replications of Thomas Kinkade paintings. Beautiful!

Both from Russia

Postcards: 3/24

My postcard wall to date:

It's gotten a bit too large to handle. I can't reach any higher than the top row and if I put any cards any lower, my cat will rip them down. So I've decided to only have my favorites on my postcard wall and to put the rest in a photo album that shows both the front and back of each card.

Two cards received yesterday:

From Lori in California, as part of the Boring tag. I actually found this card pretty funny!

An official card from Miranda in the Netherlands. Another adorable kitty!

Postcards: 3/23

From Nancy in the North America -> World: City Views Round Robin

From Eliza in the Photo You Took Yourself tag. Unfortunately the center of the photo got a little damaged during delivery, so I fixed it the best I could with my remarkable Paint skillz.

From Catherine in Australia. I totally would've named this cat Oreo.

Postcard: 3/22

My shutterfly site is updated again! I acquired several new cards for trading.

Only one card today. It was sent from Ksenia in Russia as part of the Weird/Odd/Strange Round Robin. It certainly is odd!

Postcard: 3/21

Only one card today!

Sent from Laura in Finland for the Disney tag. I've never seen Hercules before, but she says the character Hades is something to see, so I'll have to check it out!

From a fellow Kristen through the Space tag

From Para in Japan in the Fairy Round Robin

Postcards: 3/16 - 3/19

I have updated my Shutterfly page. I have new postcards available for swap.

I've gotten six postcards since Friday.

*My first fairy postcard! Courtesy of Jette from the Netherlands, as part of the Fairy tag.
*Abbey from Alaska agreed to a private swap with me. She sent me this very neat glacier card. As of March 12, it was zero degrees Fahrenheit there, while it was 80 here!

*This vintage postcard is of San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz, sent by Sarah from Boston when she was on vacation.
*The cute manatee card comes from a direct swap. I just want to hug it!

*Adi from Croatia sent this cool card of buildings directly on the water. Adi's friend is lucky enough to live in one of the buildings!
*Anita from the Netherlands sent the pretty multi-view of her town of Hengelo.

Postcards: 3/15

From Marta in Portugal in a private swap. It's a gothic temple built around 600 years ago. Pretty neat!

From New Zealander Adrienne in the NZ/Australia -> USA tag. This will be on my "must see" list if I ever make it down south!

Courtesy of Veronique in France. I love the old architecture.

I requested some royal postcards from my British pen pal Holly and she sent these!

Postcards: 3/7 - 3/13

I finally got my computer back! I've gotten 21 cards in the last week.


Funny official card from Grace in South Dakota.

Christina answered my request in a tag and sent me this Kentucky card.

Another beautiful shot of a Washington mountain.

Rather strange card from the Card you want to get rid of tag. I would much rather have "sadness" be the tiniest section!

Beautiful poem courtesy of Ryann in South Carolina.

I like this style of map card. It's very interesting to look at!

Janila, who's from Pennsylvania, got this card when she was at her retirement home in Florida. This kitty should be the spokes-"person" for Florida!

I made a mistake on an earlier post. The neat new card I had received wasn't made out of yarn. It's made out of fabric, which I still think is pretty neat, since it's entirely hand-made! I've even included the back of the "card", written as though it's a real postcard.


Turkey - I'm loving the sweet yin-yang heart
Belarus - Another kitty who reminds me of my kitty!


Spain - It appears they have a lot of interesting architecture there! This card comes from Vanessa, who noticed I didn't yet have any cards from Spain. Thanks Vanessa!
Malaysia - I think this is an ad card. Not entirely sure what the guy is doing!


Philippines - I received this pretty card from my postcard pal Cecille
India - Anaita on Postcrossing requested a card for her mother's birthday. I helped out and she sent this neat card as a thank you.


Russia - Ksenia helped contribute to my space collection with this International Space Station card
Taiwan - Yan-Tin sent this official card. It's a holographic photo of Taipei. It's also rather see-through, which is why you can see part of her message through the image.


Germany - Picasso artwork from the Weird/Odd Round Robin
Slovenia - Multi-view card from the North America -> World Round Robin. I had no idea how beautiful Slovenia is!


These two cards come as a thank you from Nectaria. She had requested some cards for a friend of hers and I helped out. Greece is beautiful!
