Mail from O’Neal

Two lovely postcards from my postcard pal O’Neal! They arrived some time ago, but I haven’t had a chance to upload them here to my blog.

First one is this beautiful sunset — oh, excuse me, dawn postcard of Pittsburgh. Such a pretty postcard! As O’Neal mentioned, Pittsburgh is the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team…. I’ll just add – Pittsburgh Penguins too! ;)

The second postcard is this cute M&M’s card. So shiny!!! As I told O’Neal right after I found it in my mailbox, I thought of putting it on my wall behind my desk… but it really reflects a lot of light, ha ha! I had to found a bit darker spot for it – which I did, so it’s all good. ;) And yes, looking at this postcard does make me crave M&M’s… or any candy, for that matter. :)

Thank you, O’Neal!!! Great postcards, as always! :D

East Front of Mansion

This is a lovely postcard from my pal Hilarie. It’s showing a painting from 1792, attributed to Edward Savage, which shows the east front of the Mansion and the surrounding lands of George Washington’s 8000-acre plantation.

Also, some really nice stamps! Slika

All of that combined with cute green shamrock and rainbow and whatnot stickers, well, because St Patrick’s Day was just a few days ago! :) Thanks Hilarie!

Australia really is a big country!

This awesome postcard came from my newest postcard pal, Kathryn, all the way from Australia. Literally from the other side of the planet. :) She mentioned that this postcard is one of her favorites, and I can clearly see why! How colorful it is, and how interesting! I mean, if you’re a bit nerdy like me – you can see why I find it so interesting to see how you can fit all those different countries into Australia! :)

Thanks Kathryn, I’m looking forward to see more of Australia through your postcards! :)

Louisiana & Oregon, USA

Isn’t it obvious who sent these beautiful postcards? O’Neal, of course. :)

This first one is showing the bald cypress tree. The little printed description on the card says, “The bald cypress three was made the official state tree of Louisiana in 1963. This tree can be found in many areas of the state, but it prefers swampy areas. Its shape depends on the amount of flooding in the area. It can be columnar, conical or bottle shaped.” Bottle shaped? I wonder what a bottle shaped tree looks like. :)

This second postcard is showing the scenic Oregon coast at sunset. I can see myself getting a towel and spending a day on this beach on a nice sunny day. Yup, I can. :)

Awesome stamps on both postcards, as always. :) Thank you, O’Neal! Your postcards are always very appreciated! :)

Canada flag

scan0007

I got this awesome Canada flag postcard from my pal Heather. It’s such an awesome thing (coincidence??) because just a few days before this postcard arrived, I was browsing through Postcrossing gallery and added a postcard like that to my favorites. Yes yes, I know, I’m a sucker for… well, anything Canadian. :)

Btw. look at this awesome stamp!!! scan0008

Thanks Heather! :)
