Nom? Nom!

Now this postcard from Jean has opened up a new world of postcards to me - if only they all looked this yummy! This is a seafood platter from the Poiteau-Charantes region of France and resulted in some serious salivation my end.

Leaning tower of postcard

A lovely chap who I met through doing a private swap on Postcrossing, Raffaelle, sent me this fantastico view of the leaning tower of pizza PISA which is great because it looks decidedly less wonky than usual!

Moscow by night

Laaahve this night time view of the Kremlin - the colour of the boat, the buildings and the sky is sublime. Many thanks to Anna for sending it to me!

Moomins! Actual Moomins!

As I'm sitting here in the freezing coal hole I call home, scanning my Postcrossing cards, this ultra sweet Moomin beauty gave me a lovely warm tingle. Thank you to the lovely Finnish family who sent it to me and made an old gal happy!

Cottage in Normandy


This little gite in Normandy is so pretty and so whimsical, I almost get the urge to commandeer a little rowing boat and bob my way across the Channel right now. The kind Michel sent this Postcrossing to me. Merci!

Postcard from Texas

I always enjoy getting postcards from Americans, though I never seem to get that many :( Well, this is from Janet in Austin, Texas and what an amazing skyline! The colours are just superb, the mirroring, the lights, the sky. Janet has visited the county I live in here in the UK, both years ago and more recently. Sadly she said it was not the green and pleasant land she remembers - boo!

Winter in Denmark



I adore this postcard from lovely Postcrosser Alex. It shows the grassy plains of Denmark in winter. Frosted ground, rainbow sunset; perfect. Like me Alex is a huge Eurovision fanatic - I love the connection I find with fellow EV aficionados, it makes us instant chums for life. Like me, he often feels embarrassed by his country's entry, though that doesn't diminish the contest's magic.
