In My Mailbox (82)

After only one card last week, I had five postcards in my mailbox this week. The first postcard I received this week came from Istanbul, Turkey. The girl who send it was only a couple months old and her mother is collecting postcards for her. Isn't that amazing?

This postcard is just so great, so unique, nothing like all the other cards I've received. I think it's wonderful. It's from Guangzhou, China.

This touristic card came from Menaam, the Netherlands and it's from a part of our country I really never want to visit. I don't know why, but the people have a weird dialect there. So do we, but it sounds more logical. I do like all the green in this card.

Today I could add a card to my US state map collection. I didn't have one from New Mexico yet. It's from Albuquerque. I love the colors in this card.

That's awesome. I do postcrossing too. I'm always afraid my postcards don't arrive or don't get registered. Little less than 2 weeks ago I sent seven postcards to Belarus and Russia, and only one of them has been registered so far.

But it's a lot of fun. I'm looking for a way to store my postcards. I'm thinking about binding them or something, but I'm not sure how yet. How do you keep your postcards?

I keep them in a box. It doesn't use a lot of space and it's easy to look at them and read them again. I also stack them in order how I received them. Some people categorize them by country.

I also enjoy postcrossing a lot!
