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!

Poland, Slovakia & Croatia

Three postcards straight from my mailbox!

The first one is from my friend Thea, who sent me this nice green postcard from her area, Jastrebarsko, Croatia. Kind of a nice postcard, makes me think of sunny (and warm) days!

The second postcard comes from Slovakia, from a town called Bardejov. It was a swap with Ivana.  This postcard is showing Bardejov Town Conservation Reserve, one of Slovakia’s UNESCO sites. Bardejov is a small but exceptionally complete and well-preserved example of a fortified medieval town, which typifies the urbanisation in this region. Among other remarkable features, it also contains a small Jewish quarter around a fine 18th-century synagogue.

The third postcard comes from Poland, and is showing the main town hall in Gdańsk. Thank you Martyna, I really like thi spostcard! :)

I’m off to see if I have anything to post on my other blog now. It’s always somewhere in the back of my mind… but I so rarely do something there. :-/
