Germany's Northern Lights

I can't believe so much time has passed since my last post.  I've been having a bit of trouble with my computer lately.  It gets too hot and cuts off.  Makes it kind of hard to scan cards, when it does that.  I'm not totally sure why this happens??  Still on the hunt for a job too, so taking a lot of time to look at the different job sights and filling out applications, but no response.  It gets me quite discouraged at times and depressed, and  then I don't feel like doing a whole lot of anything.  I'm trying to keep my hopes up and stay positive, but it's pretty difficult to do, when one is feeling down.  Anyway enough rambling about that now and on to the cards.

I love light houses and this card is absolutely awesome.  It brought a big smile to my face when I found it in my mail box.  It's just a great card showing all the light houses of Germany's North and East Coast.  
I really love this card.  It came from the Postcrossing Meeting in Berlin on 05-21-11.
So it has loads of signatures on it too, which makes it even more special to me.  
Thank you so much to Mausbaer47 from Germany who sent me this awesome card as part of the Big Groups Round Robin and all others who signed the card.   Danke schoen!!!

Real pretty flowery stamps, but too bad, they didn't get postmarked.  I guess they somehow got by the machine.


Love, love, love map cards and this one is a real fun one:)
It's called  "The True Map Of North America"
In this card the state of Alabama pretty much took over the whole country.  Gotta love it!
A big 'Thank You' goes to Zeroday for sending me this awesome map card for the NA April RR.
I looove it!

Sao Paulo, Brazil

Patio do Colegio is the historical Jesuit church and school in Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil.  
This great card was sent by Tarcisio for the January RR 2011.  He always sends such beautiful cards and I thought it was time to post another one.
Thank you for the nice card!

Some nice colorful stamps.  I really like the big one on the left with all the details.  Awesome!

Sierra Nevada Animals

This is an official card I received almost 2 years ago.  US-462263.
All those great animals can be found in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California.
Pictured are a black bear (my favorite), a mountain lion, a deer, a fox, a bobcat, a chipmunk, a marmot,  a raccoon and a coyote.  I think they're all great and I love the card and wanted to share it.  
A big 'thank you' goes out to Eleanor for sending this cool card.

California Treasure Map

This is such an awesome map card of the California Treasures.  Back in the year 1848 is when the California Gold Rush began.  People came from all over hoping to strike it rich.  
Now, some people come to California hoping to make it big in movies.
Most people come for the sun and fun and all the attractions.
I received this cool card from Silencedogwood for the North America April Round Robin.
Many thanks Debbie!

The postage for postcards within the US is 29 cents now.  Here is one of the new stamps and a really great postmark.  Just wanted to show that!

Bangkok, Thailand

TH - 24802 an official postcrossing card from Thailand.
Love this beautiful night view of Bangkok, Thailand.  
The card shows Wat Phra Keo, a very important temple for Thai people.  
I love the Asian architecture, the beautiful shape of the roofs and towers.  Amazing!

This beautiful stamp shows a long sandy white beach.

Hello Kitty From Japan

Yeah, a new 'Hello Kitty' card!  I love them!  She's so cute!!!
The card says "Congratulations".
It was sent to me by Yummy from Japan for the January RR.
Thank you so much Yumi.

She also used a 'Hello Kitty" stamp.  So cute!  Love both of the stamps!

Yoohoo, another Nouvelles Images card.  I love these cards! 
 This one is of a variety of jams in their different jars.  Yummy!
I used to can vegetables and tomatoes when we had a garden,  but never tried to make jam.  
This awesome card was sent to me by Muldj01 from the Netherlands for the January RR.
Thank you so much Jose.
Sorry, I had a bit of a problem with the scanning.

Some really cool stamps on this one.  I love them all!

German Clock Route

This map card is of the 'German Clock Route' in the Black Forest.  
It's about 320 km long.  On this route you'll find museums related to clocks and of course many clock factories.  I'd love to go and see all the fascinating clocks and beautiful scenery and maybe even buy a nice cuckoo clock to bring home.
Thank you to Violet from Germany, who sent me this cool card for the January RR.

Nice big stamp.  Looking at it makes me hungry for strawberry short cake.  

Fun Card from France

This is such a fun card.  "Where is the gardener?"  Can you find him?
This is my first card like this and I love it!
It came from Perfecta for the January RR.
Thank you so much Marion.

Nice stamp on the card and the automated postmark.
