Wow, what a difference two weeks make. Last week, not one card showed up in my mailbox; this week, I have a wealth of them, not all from Postcrossing. Therefore, I’ll tell you about them in two posts, one for the Postcrossing cards, the second for the other cards.

Let’s get started on the Postcrossing cards that arrived this past week. In no particular order, here we go!

According to Anatoly, these buildings were made without nails! I am assuming that it was all done with wooden pegs but, all the same, impressive looking buildings. And the stamps are great, too!

From Lady Taz, this neat card from Florida…

Next up, Bridal Veil Falls in North Carolina. I wonder just how many Bridal Veil Falls there are in the world; there’s one near Hope, B.C., a couple of hours down the road from us and I’ve heard of others, too.

Hank put some great stamps on his card (including a Harry Potter stamp!) and even, very considerately, put his current temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius. His temperatures, that day, were very similar to what we had here.

This one, from Etherea, in Arkansas, was interesting because of the note on the back. Her grandfather was born in Kamloops, about 1.5 hours from me. I lived there for about two years. If that’s not a small world story, I don’t know what is!

I must admit that, as much as I’d love to visit a cave like this some time, I’m afraid I’d be more than a little nervous. I am a touch claustrophobic and the thought of being in an underground cavern does give me pause even though I’m sure they’re absolutely amazing to see.

This next card is more to my liking, I will admit.

Wide open spaces, hot sand, warm water…. yup, bring it on! This is a beach I could walk for hours! Maybe one day?

And then, there’s London. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of the Tower Bridge like this one. Amazing!

We simply do not have anything like this here. The Paddington Bear stamp just tops it all off. He’s just so cute!

The last card for this post comes from my own country and shows something that we just don’t see here in the west. In Ontario, there is a large group of Mennonites, similar to the Amish of Pennsylvania, that eschew modernity and live a simple life without so many of the things we take for granted… like cars.

Well, that’s it for this post. The next post will have the non-Postcrossing cards.
