This is my week’s postcard haul! I hope that you’ll like it!
Keep Calm and Read Harry Potter postcard – which I love so much! It came from Postcrossing – RU-6594139. Special thank you to Sasha from Russia. And Sasha – congrats on passing all of your exams. That’s amazing! Harry Potter fans – how do you like this?
Postcrossing postcard again, this time coming from Turkey. TR-376480. Thank you Eda, I really loved this postcard! The writing says Happy Ramadan, which is the biggest Muslim celebrations in the world. The building behind is the blue mosque and it’s very famous and beautiful!
This amazing postcard comes from the Goodreads Postcard Exchange Group that I am into. Each month, we send a postcard to one person from the group, and the June theme was: Where do you usually read?
Thank you Manisha, for sending me this amazing postcard!
Postcrossing again – this time from Wei from Taiwan (TW-2550963). I think this postcard is amazingly cute, and there are also lovely drawings at the back. So cool!
Do you like sending postcards? If you like the idea – it’s never to late to start. Check out Postcrossing, or send me a message. It’s an amazing hobby that I have apart from reading, and I love it!
The amazing community of lovely people always brightens up my day!
Special thank you for these four postcards/cards! I love them all dearly!
Thank you to:
/u/stockman1984 , for the universe postcard (top left). I loved the quote you included inside! It is truly amazing!
/u/MaeveTheBrave , for the lovely donut card (top right).
Amazing ”did you know” – Vermont’s capital city, Montpelier, is the smallest state capital in the USA – population wise! Less than 9000 people live there! I had no clue about this – and thank you for teaching me a fact or two 🙂
/u/bubs57 , for the YESSS! card (bottom left) and the amazing Nutella recipe! I haven’t tried it yet, but most certainly will soon!
P.S: If anyone wants the recipe, please let me know 🙂
/u/gigi700gigi , for the amazing Morning Sun Postcard (bottom right). You have a lovely handwriting, Gina! I loved the postcard and I would love to visit Califonia some day!
When the love for receiving postcard will combine with the love of art, this is what happens.
It makes my day!
For those that are not aware, Carl Larsson was a Swedish painter, mostly painting using oils, watercolors, and frescoes. He considered his finest work to be Midvinterblot (Midwinter Sacrifice), a large painting now displayed inside the Swedish National Museum of Fine Arts.
The postcard that I have received is called Brita in the Drawing Room.
I really love it and this that it is ahead of its time.
I remember my visit to Zurich, in February 2015, for a European Karate Championship.
I didn’t see an much of it as I truly wanted, but I got a little view of this wonderful city in a same condition like I see it on this postcard. And ahh, it brings me so many amazing memories from that time.
Marco (/u/penguinsontv), thank you so much for reminding me of this city!
This month I’m announcing the start of summer. In England it doesn’t really seem like summer yet, so I’ll be drawing a lot of ice-creams for you guys.
And the best thing is – you get to color them yourselves!
I have never been to India, but India reminds me of the old values of life. It reminds me of my childhood and then I get nostalgic about home, about Macedonia.
Athira says my name reminds her of her childhood. There was one Ivana in her first grade and was her only friend back then. It makes her nostalgic.
I remember my first grade. It was a little bit boring, because I already knew how to read. After a while, I just got used to the fact that I have to repeat all the letters with the children in my class. I had many friends. And time after time I started to lose them one by one. It was no one’s fault. It just had to be that way.
Or maybe it was my fault. Because I was different. I still am.
I never wore the clothes they did. I never put make-up in the ways they did. I always wore bracelets with dream catchers and evil eyes and handmade jewellery, and they thought I was weird. But I didn’t care. I still don’t.
I was weird, but I was me. And I love the ME I was and the ME I am.
And yes, that left me with just a few friends, those true ones, that accept my weirdness and we are together cool. I found a man that is weird with me, and it feels amazing.
And what more can you expect in life? I have everything I need.
