Two days ago, I told you I would write and update you on my postcards. I thought about showing all of my mail but I got a ton of Christmas cards with pictures and I didn't know if my friends/family would mind me posting them. (They all are beautiful!) I also got a great package from my friend Jenny in Germany that included a card a magnetic notepad and some DELICIOUS Advent chocolates (which I may or may not be devouring at an unhealthy rate...).
Here are all of my cards over the past month or so. Being a musician in December has greatly interfered with me just sitting around and having time to blog.
From the US- Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado... beautiful
From Russia. Check out the sticker that was stuck on it. When the Postcrosser sent it to me, the sticker was not there. Anyone every see this sticker before? There's a close up under the postcard. What does it mean?
China: A postcard of a stamp from 1997.
From Germany- David took this out of my mailbox and was startled. I love it. I've developed a liking for owls.
More owls from Plymouth, MA- less than 2 hours from me. I'd love to meet more local Postcrossers.
Russia: (art card. Isn't it pretty?)
Belarus: More owls! Can you tell I updated my Postcrossing preferences?
China- Confucius Temple.
Finland- Moomin!!!! I also love that the proceeds from buying the card will help to build a children's hospital in Helsinki.
Russia: This card confused me a little. I thought Konigsberg was in Germany. Apparently, after 1945 it is called Kaliningrad. It was the easternmost city in Germany until it was captured after WWII. (According to Wikipedia..lol)
From the US- Minnesota. I was telling the Postcrosser that I know the man who is currently renting Einstein's viola from a museum. I have heard it played. It's beautiful.
These cards are from a Christmas card RR I did through Postcrossing. The first is from Ireland and the next 2 are from Germany, and the last is from the Netherlands.
Oh, I should also show you a gift from my Reddit Secret Santa. I sent a pashmina scarf to a Redditor in CA. I received this gift from a Reddit user in Oregon who didn't tell me their name. Thanks if you are reading this!
It is a kitten calendar, which David claimed, cookies and an art kit. I was especially excited about the art kit because I've wanted to try pastels but haven't wanted to pay for them in case I stink at it! lol
