Atlanta & Memphis, USA

Once again, these postcards were not scanned, but photographed instead – sorry for them being blurry. My printer/scanner keeps fighting my laptop & refuses to work properly. Please cope with the blurriness for a little bit longer! :)

Anyway, today I’m sharing two lovely postcards sent by O’Neal. Lovely postcards, both of them!
First is from Atlanta, Georgia. More info on the city – HERE.  And now, please look at the view. I’m not a glitter-fan in any normal situation, but doesn’t the glittery sky just fit the image here??? I kind of love it!

The second one is from Memphis, Tennessee. The postcard caption says “Azalea time”, and after a little snooping around on the internet, I think azaleas grow throughout the city & look pretty fabulous when in bloom. :)

Also, look at the wonderful stamps! I love all the stamps O’Neal uses on his postcards. I only wish Croatia had so many to choose from!

And now if you’ll excuse me, I have: a) a letter to write, b) a beanie to crochet and c) sleep to sleep. :D

Thanks Cori :)

Yesterday I got this awesome package from my friend Cori. Apart from the awesome “Happy Bunny” things, she hand-decorated & filled a notebook with different little facts about her, what she’s into, put many many photos in it… and in a little pocket inside I discovered a stack of postcards. So here they are:

Canada map card. I’m normally not dying when I see a map card, but this one is actually really cool. I love the little drawings of planes, buildings, horses etc.
