Hong Kong

February 6, 2017

This card came to my mailbox from Renee in Hong Kong.  She wrote a friendly short note on the back too.

Renee wrote,

"Helen.
Hello! Greets from HK!
You can see the night
view of the commercial
area. It's really great!
I hope you'll like it.

             Renee"

United States

February 6, 2017

This card arrived while I was away on a little birthday trip, so I wasn't able to register it right away, but I did it as soon as I came back.  It was sent by Terry who has a Facebook Page dedicated to Postcards.  Her page, if you'd like to find it is called Postcards from Around the World.

Terry wrote,

"Hello from Arkansas! (ARE. can.saw) This is my favourite card to share because of the unique photo, the mail connection, and the family connection.  I love to dance, and I also love "Strictly Ballroom!"
I used to work for a video company, so I had access to movies before the public did.  Such a campy movie, but I love it!

Happy Postcards!

Terry Lovell

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!"

Germany - Actress in Black & White

February 3, 2017

Butz sent me a card with a famous actress on it and it was terrific!  I have a few cards of this actress, Romy Schneider, but I haven't seen this particular portrait of her before.  I really like it.

Romy Schneider, Berlin 1976

He wrote,

"Hello Helen,
Greetings from Germany.  I live nearby Bremen.  I'm 77 years old, but I like to travel.  2004 I have been in Edmonton.  I nice town with perfect peoples.
Have a good time in Japan.
Butz"


Butz used a great stamp too.  The one on the right is lovely!

Gratitude

February 17, 2017

The theme of this weekend's Blog Link-Up Party is Gratitude.  Not many of my postcards are connected to this theme, but I did manage to find one that fits.  Hurray!

On a more personal note, I actually am so grateful for almost all of my postcards.  The fact that people choose lovely cards, write nice things on the back and then send them to me is a wonderful thing.  There are some days when a nice postcard in the mail just lifts my spirits.  It is funny how mail can do that!

I'm afraid I don't remember much about this card.  It was sent from Germany and was rather colourful and fun.  I received it in September 2013. I love the multi-language idea.  It is so simple, but lovely!


Please see the other members of the Blog Link-Up Party for their take on the theme of Gratitude.  Thank YOU for visiting my blog today!  I hope to see you again soon.

Germany

February 3, 2017

This postcard came from Germany and Monique wrote about her area of the world.

Monique wrote,

"Hello Helen,
Greetings from Germany.  More specifically, from Saxon, Switzerland.  This is near Dresden.  Maybe you know this city.

On the card you can see the Bastei Bridge, it is made of stone and very high. From there you have a great view over the nature. I hope you like the card.  Have a nice day. 😄

Best wishes, Monique"

Russia - Art

January 31, 2017

This next card comes from St. Petersburg and was sent by Alana.  She wrote a nice note and put some cute goat stickers all over the back of the card!

Alana wrote,

"Hello!  Greetings from Russia.  My name's Alana. I live in St. Petersburg. I have 2 cats and German Shepherd-his name's Ramses, like Egyptian pharaoh.  Yeah, I love Egyptian history.

I also want to start playing the ukulele.

Best wishes and good luck in new year,

Alana"

China

January 31, 2017

This card came from China with a friendly message on the back from Chen Jie.  She also wrote something in kanji that I cannot translate.

She wrote,

"Hi, Helen. I'm Chen jie, a girl from China.  I hope you will like the post card.
Hope you a good day! 😊 "

This card looks like it should be a manga card, but there isn't any information on the back.  
It reminds me a bit of Sherlock!


This stamp is from the Beijing Olympics. I think it is quite beautiful in its simplicity.
