If this card looks familiar, it is because it was featured on this blog before as part of a Winter Holiday celebration. However, I wasn't able to tell the whole story of this card there.
Debora sent this very short card to me with a lovely stamp and a friendly message on the back. She wrote,
Greetings for the cold Sweden! I'm Debora and live in Uppsala for 3 years. The city is full of students because of its famous university. Here I live a very calm life, cycling around and enjoying the swom[I am not sure what she meant to say here] of this time of the year!
All the best to you!"
Happy New Year
In my Postcrossing Profile, I talk about celebrating the battle scars that cards receive on the way to me, and I do. There is something special about a card that is ripped or notched or damaged in some way, that still arrives in my mail box. This card was a prime example of that!
There was even an attached "ribbon" of a sort, a message from the Japanese Post Office. Basically it is an apology for the damaged card and I believe a message that they taped the card. Generally, I admire the Post Office here very much (except when they send me other people's post cards just because they are written in English!!)
