It’s been an interesting week & there are several interesting postcards to share! If I were only more active on Postcrossing, good mail days would probably come more often than they do now, haha! #sigh
First thing I’d like to share is this awesome “Keep calm and send a postcard” postcard from the USA, sent by Shannon (who has a cool Postcrossing username: happy_face! I just had to share this one, I like “happy”-anything things.)
I absolutely adore this postcard! Not too long ago, I added “Keep calm” postcards to my wishlist on Postcrossing, in hope someone might have some extra and would want to share them with me, and this is actually the first one of those that was sent my way. And it’s an awesome one!!! ::happy happy::
The second thing I wanted to share is not really a postcard, but it was sent to me through the official Postcrossing & I quite like it, so I’m not being picky about it. Two photographs were sent my way by Sylvia & Batiste, packed in a cute coffee themed handmade envelope. I’m sharing both photographs here, one is showing the lavender field (typical for the particular region of France where Slyvia & Batiste come from, if I understood it correctly), and the other is a vintage black and white beach themed photo. As a photography geek myself, I can appreciate both! :)
I have a few more postcards to share, but I gotta run now & do real-life things. So, I’ll post something new soon! :)
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
Thank you Ugne, I really appreciate it! :)
This is a nice official from Portugal! Haven’t received anything from Portugal in a long time so this was a nice surprise! :)
Salir do Porto is the northernmost parish of the municipality of Caldas da Rainha. It has a beach with a famous sand dune almost 49 metres high. The beach is located by the river Tornada that flows into the São Martinho bay.
My pal Ugne sent me these two lovely postcards – they arrived just before Christmas! :) Lately we’ve been having major issues with our mail – even with completely correct addresses, our mail was disappearing! I don’t know if it was just bad luck or a gang of tiny evil postcard snatchers… but I’m happy something got through and hopefully we won’t be having any more troubles.
Anyway, here are the postcards – the black and white one, and a lovely Christmas card!
A nice official from Postcrossing that found its way to my mailbox yesterday!
The name of the picture/photo is Artists on the Thames (1947). It says: “The Wapping Group of Artists spend their Friday evenings in summer on Bankside, sketching the wharves, piers, bridges and ships; in the foreground is the group’s first president, Jack Merriott. The Wapping Group still exists, and remains devoted to outdoor painting, meeting on the river (from Henley to Medway) from April to September. It holds an annual show at the Mall Galleries.”
And look at this lovely hedgehog stamp!
