Yen-Chiu from Taiwan sent me this colorful postcard from Taiwan via Postcrossing. The card shows the decorations on the roof of his local temple. Doesn't it look great?! And check out the beautiful stamps on his postcard! My favorite is the one with the pink flowers... :)
I received another postcard from my friend Barbara through SparkPeople the other day. She was so nice to think of me while she was traveling and picked this card up at the Minneapolis airport for me. This way, I get to cross another US state off my list. Thanks Barbara!
Thanks to Postcrosser Linda from Yuma, Arizona, I get to cross another US state off my list! This beautiful card shows Tonto National Forest during a summer storm. Don't you just love the colors?!
Linda also did great choosing stamps, I especially love the one with the green car about going green by sharing rides!
After receiving my third postcard from Germany the other day, I've decided to add another goal to my postcard project. Previously, my goals were to a) collect a postcard from every country in the world and b) also collect postcards from all of the 50 states of the US. I've now added a third goal: to collect postcards from all of the 16 states (or Bundesländer as they are called in German) that make up Germany.
Cornelia from Bremen sent me this postcard through Postcrossing. Bremen is one of three cities in Germany that is both a city and a state. I recently visited Bremen as it is not too far from Hamburg and really enjoyed my stay there. It's definitely worth a visit! Cornelia also put a cute stamp on the card, enjoy!
Karin from the Netherlands sent me this pretty postcard via Postcrossing. It shows a very pretty castle in her hometown of 's Hertogenbosch. I also like the stamps she put on the card, especially the one of Queen Beatrix. Thanks Karin!
I received my second postcard from Germany a few days ago. Postcrossing member Andrea lives close to Lake Constance and sent me this beautiful card showing some views from the charming towns in the area.
I recently received my first postcard from Germany! Nicci sent it to me from her hometown of Wuppertal via Postcrossing. She might actually send me another postcard because she accidently mailed the card that was intended for me to China and promised to send me a replacement. Thanks Nicci, I'm looking forward to hearing from you again!
Corinne, a fellow Postcrossing member from New Hampshire, sent me this card. The beautiful art card shows NYC, which is why I have decided to classify it as an entry for New York. Now I "only" have 48 more states to go. :)
This postcard was sent to me by fellow SparkPeople member Barbara from Iowa with whom I have arranged a private swap. It shows a view of the Mississippi and is my first "real" postcard from the US. I said "real" because it's the first card from the US to actually show a place in the states. One down, forty-nine to go... Thanks Barbara, I can't wait for the other postcards you're going to send me!
I received a few postcards over the weekend, so I really need to get caught up with posting them... First one up is from Julie in Australia.
I met Julie on SparkPeople, an awesome free diet website I joined to lose weight for my wedding. I met lots of great people on there and the support from the community is amazing. I posted a blog about my postcard project on there and Julie volunteered to help me out and send me a postcard. Don't you just love the view on that card?! The stamp is also very beautiful, thanks Julie!
