In My Mailbox (83)

I got some amazing postcards this week. Seven officials and one private swap. The first is already great. This polar bear postcard is just breathtaking. It's from Jyväskylä, Finland. And the senders are two dogs, funny right.

This really funny and colorful frog postcard came from Delft, the Netherlands. The sender has the same problem as me. Sometimes you put such an effort in picking out the perfect card for someone and some people just send those free cards. I'm glad that this sender isn't one of those people.

From St. Petersburg, Russia I got this amazing fall card. She bought the card in her favorite bookstore and when she saw this postcard she immediatly thought it would be perfect for me. I send her a card in return, because she wants to exchange cards and letters as well.

From Kiev, Ukraine I got this fantastic bear postcard. Simply wonderful! The sender is a fan of Harry Potter too. As a thank you I send her a postcard as well and maybe in the future we will send each other more postcards or even letters.

This gorgeous horse came from Modena, Italy. This is my second card from Italy. The sender didn't write a lot on the back, but a great card like this speaks for itself.

This cute postcard from Cherkasy, Ukraine also didn't have a lot of writing on the back. But again, this sweet squirrel is forgiven. Lovely isn't it?

And this card came from Gatchina, Russia. This guy send me a card before, but he was so happy with my reaction to his card that he decided to send me another. Nice right! So I send him a postcard in return. That's the least I can do.

Thanks Blue & Loki, Elize, Kristina, Norbert, Katherine, Gabriele, Alex and Anton for you great postcards!!

Nice cards indeed, and lots of animals! I may have received some free postcards as well, but I'm not sure and up until now I've always enjoyed what I got.

I don't always pick cards specifically for people. Where I live it's rather hard to find decent postcards, so usually I buy a stack of the same theme online. It may not be the most personal thing to do but I do try to pick a card of which I think the receiver will like them.

I did a post about my postcrossing postcards collection today. Maybe you'd like to have a look, I think you'll like it!
