Greetings from… Russia

Postallove again, you say? Yes!
Having one of these Greetings from… postcards actually sent from the country of origin makes it so much better than going online and buying a blank one (which I, luckily, didn’t do, although it was heavily considered at one point).

All the interesting facts about Russia & this beautiful image in the background, wow! :)
I really appreciate the sweet Tanya’s effort to send me one of these, especially knowing how they can only be bought online & how some of them are even sold out on the web site. I’m still not a die-hard I-must-have-all-of-them kind of fan of Greetings from… postcards, but every single one of them is greatly appreciated and I really enjoy reading them & then adding them on my wall to look at! :)

Hot air balloons from Germany

Receiving a lovely postcard like this one from Germany reminds me why I enjoy(ed) Postcrossing so much!

It’s one of the postcards sold by the postsallove.com web site – and I honestly had no clue they had any type of postcards other than those Greetings from… collection. Any day I learn something new is a good day! I’ve been looking through their web site for the last hour and I can pretty much say I WANT THEM ALL. I’m not going to order any because I have way too many blank postcards already and, well, my self control is great… and so on. ;)

Also, stamps! The bunny one is just awesome!

Greetings from… Croatia

I’m sure you all are familiar with the whole Postallove Greetings from… series of postcards. I know a lot of people are big fans of those postcards and I know many who are trying to get all of them. As for myself, I think they are cute. I have a few of them that I randomly received from postcard pals & through official Postcrossing site. I’m not passionately trying to collect them all, I don’t look for them or ask for them to be sent to me. If I get one, I’m happy. If I don’t, I’m still happy. ;)

But I was really happy to get my hands on this one:

My friend was ordering some online & was kind enough to get one of these for me. :) I have to mention that I have only this one, therefore please don’t ask me for a swap as I simply don’t have any more to send out. (sorry!)

I like that they used Dubrovnik as the background picture, knowing it’s one of the most known locations in the country and if you mention the city’s name to foreign people – most of them will be familiar with it. I like the little facts on it as well, although it feels like there’s nothing more to Croatia but the sea and Dalamtian region… and there is, a lot more. I’m not picky though, it’s cute & it’s a great way to share the knowledge about the country through Postcrossing!

Do you collect these Greetings from… postcards? How many do you have? I’m curious.
