I received these two adorable cards in a Private Swap from the Czech Republic.
I love any kind of bears and these guys are just too cute, aren't they?  
Thank you so much Sarka!

This guy is a Steiff Bear, one of the oldest ones with a sealing-wax nose from 1902/03.
He looks like he's in good shape, considering he's over 100 years old.

Sarka wrote that she found this card in the Toy Museum in Prague and they have a big collection of  
Steiff and otherTeddy Bears and also Barbie Dolls to see.
Oh, I'd love to visit there.  That would be so much fun to see all the antique bears
and other collectible toys.

This is Bora in the Prague Zoo.  How adorable is he?
I just love to go see the animals.
I haven't been to a zoo in soooo long!

Nouvelles Images

And here are some new Nouvelles Images cards, which I also received in this private swap.
I love these type of cards and Sarka was so nice to send them to me.

Since I love pasta, this is a perfect card for me.
Love all the different types of pasta pictured on the card.
Hmm!  Getting hungry, lol!

This one has so many different things, like spices, cookies, chocolates etc.
Each time I look at it, I find something else.
Couldn't really figure out the translation, but it looks like all kinds of delicacies from different places.
Really such a cool card.

These are the awesome stamps that were on the envelope.

Fauna of Belarus

I found this great owl card from Belarus today in my mail box.
 Postcrossing  BY - 500855.
The owl is really captured well on this card.
Thank you to Kiryla for this beautiful card.

Absolutely love these stamps.  So beautiful and detailed and awesome colors.

Cool Postcrossing Card

I received another Postcrossing card from the Netherlands, NL-1280211.
Looking at this card, I just want to pack up and go on a trip.
Such a great, fun card.
Thank you to Liefke for sending this great card and for translating the saying.
'Ga je mee'?  means 'Are you coming'?

Love the heart world stamp!

Housework is Evil

This is a funny card, but so true in a sense, lol.  I mean, who likes to do housework?  Not me!
I think it's a great card and I wanted to show it here.
I received this card for the North America June Round Robin 
from Veeder.  She saw it in my favorites and sent it to me.
How nice of her!
Thank you so much!  I love it!

San Francisco, California

San Francisco is one of the nicest cities.  I was lucky to visit there many years ago and I loved it.
There is so much to see and do. The cable cars, China town, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf  and of course the Golden Gate Bridge are just some of the must-see places there. Wonderful restaurants and a great climate.  I had the most amazing time.  I really hope that some day I can go there again.  
This card gives a great view of the city and it's great architecture.
Thank you to Vejoyce for sending me this beautiful card for the 
North America June Round Robin.


One of my biggest loves are bears. 
It makes me especially happy to find something with bears on it 
in my mail box.
These brown bears are just so cute frolicking in the wild.
Just wanna go up to them and give 'em some snuggles, lol! 
A big thank you to Lori, who always sends me the most amazing cards.

California Natural Wonders

A new California map card.  I love map cards and this one is so neat with all the little characters.
This map card shows all the different natural wonders in California, like the giant redwoods, Death Valley and of course Yosemite National Park, just to name some of them.
Thank you to Cruzin for sending me this awesome card for the North America June
Round Robin.

A New Moomin Card

Yeah, a new Moomin card. Isn't it cute?  I love it!
 I haven't sent any official cards on Postcrossing in a long time.
I'm not sure why exactly, probably because of being involved in Round Robins on the forum and Swap-bot and private swaps.  A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get some addresses and send out 3 or 4 cards and today I received this adorable one, FI-1457362.
A big thank you goes out to Erja for this cute card.

And take a look at this adorable Moomin stamp?  Can't help, but love it!
