Five This Week

07 Apr

It’s been a busy Postcrossing week! Five cards arrived in my mailbox. Here we go…

matroyshkaThis one, unsurprisingly, came from Russia. I love these nesting dolls. My mother has a few of them and all the grandkids have loved playing with them.

Luther backThe third one came from Belarus. Alexander requested that I send him a card with some interesting scenery from my country. I think I have just the card for him.

comic backI love the card and I love the back story that accompanied it. I do hope Amy is still drawing!

Whenever I send or receive a card I, obviously, read the recipient’s (or sender’s) profile. I’m often amazed at how specific some Postcrossers are about their likes and dislikes. Personally, I’m finding that the more I’m involved with Postcrossing, the more I realize that I like getting any kind of card! Even the ad cards give a glimpse into life in another part of the world… and there’s nothing wrong with that!
