I have now received a total of 17 postcards from postcrossing folks and friends! I have also sent 17 postcards that have arrived at their destinations and I have 5 more that I’ve put in the mail in the last two days. I recently bought a photo album to put the postcards in that I’ve gotten. I’ve had to trim just a bit off of a few of them to make them fit. One is what I’d call a plus-sized card (the Chihuly card) and I will put an envelope in the back of the photo album to hold it and any others like it that I get in the future. Trimming it would make me lose too much of the card. Here are my newest cards:
On this one is from Giesbeek, she suggests a song to me. I haven’t listened to it yet, but plan to look it up one day soon and do just that. The song is “Time to Smile” by Xavier Rudd.
This one is a train station in Belarus. Beautiful!
There are several images, as you can see, on the card from Finland. My sister and I went to Finland when we were teenagers. I was young and stupid and couldn’t stand to be away from my boyfriend. I was 17 and since I missed him so, I came home after only one week. My sister stayed the whole month and took a sauna while visiting Finnish friends of our father’s. I now wish I had appreciated the trip more when I was actually on it. I married the boyfriend the next March. We’ve been together almost 33 years now.
This card from Florida shows some Dale Chihuly glass. I love his work. This is from the Black Cylinder group.
