My pal Beatrice saw this ice hockey related postcard and thought of me! Yay! :D
It’s a postcard of the NHL team Winnipeg Jets. The printed description on the back says, “Members of the Winnipeg Jets gathered around the center ice logo during pre-game introductions prior to the team taking on the Montreal Canadiens adn the MTS Centre on October 9. 2011 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.“
There you go! :)
I’ve noticed this particular postcard in the Postcrossing gallery and immediately loved it. Of course, I added it to my favorites. And not too long after that, I found it in my mailbox! My dear pal Ugne obviously looked through my favorites and had one on hand! It made me so happy!! <3
The picture is called “It’s a Maybe” and the author is Kristina Petrošiene. I believe she’s Lithuanian?! Correct me if I’m wrong. :) But it’s such a beautiful picture! <3
These following postcards did not come from the same sender, but I decided to post them together since they’re from the same part of the world. :)
This first one came from one of my new pals, Bryony, and it’s showing the Cardiff Castle, Wales. It dates back to the first century, said Bryony! Wow, that’s old! :) Great postcard, by the way! I love how it looks!
The second postcard arrived just this morning, from my – not so new – pal, Kathryn. She’s traveling in Europe and is visiting the UK. The postcard is showing the Historic North Yorkshire, or more specifically: (top row, left to right) Byland Abbey, Castle HOward, Helmsley Castle, Pickering Castle, (bottom row, left to right) Rievaulx Abbey, Mount Grace Priory, Scarborough Castle, Whitby Abbey. Great postcard as well!
Last but not least, from my pal Ugne – London! Oh, London! <3 The postcard is showing the red buses crossing the Westminster Bridge. Can I say it once more? Oh, London! <3
This wonderful postcard was sent to me by my dear pal Ugne. Such a nice picture!!! <3 And of course, I’m really late to upload it to the blog. No surprises there. -_- Thank you, Ugne, I really, really love this postcard! <3
One of my newer pals, Rose, was kind enough to put together a little package and send it my way. Aside from candy (Cadbury chocolates are my new love!) and cute little souvenirs (such as a key chain and the coolest 3D red London bus magnet), some tea (that I still haven’t tried because it’s just too hot around here to drink tea)… she also sent me these three postcards!
First, of course, a London multiview postcard. Because London is my dream destination… and there’s a picture of Sherlock Holmes statue on it. I <3 Sherlock!
Second, this cool Sheffield postcard. It’s showing the Sheffield Train Station and the water cascades in front of it. I wonder if kids ever go here and dip in?! I doubt, Rose said they never get temperatures high enough that would make people want to take a dip in a fountain. :)
Third, this cool fish & chips postcard. I was asking her about that dish a while ago in one of our e-mails, and she added this lovely postcard to her package! I’m still curious to try out the actual meal, ha ha!
My dear pal Kathryn sent me these two postcards during the time I was “avoiding the computer”. I’m going to upload them together simply because they’re from the same sender and from the same area!
First, here’s this cool postcard showing different tastes of Tasmania – chocolate (<3), cheese (<3) and raspberries (<3), and a little map showing where to get each of these things. And of course, I can’t stop thinking of raspberries again…. :)
The second postcard is this AWESOME Tasmanian Devil. They look so cute and cuddly when you see them on TV, and yet – look at their teeth!!! I wouldn’t want to try out how sharp they are, ha ha! :)
A friend of mine, Mateja, went on a little vacation to Barcelona, Spain. Of course, she brought back this postcard for my collection! :)
I love Barcelona, it’s such a beautiful city! I was there only once and I remember being amazed by the architecture and just by the entire atmosphere in the city. I would love to go back and maybe spend a bit more time there! :)
