Just a random collection of postcards I have received from Postcrossing.com

One of my favorites! I really enjoy the cards that say "Greetings from...". Also I really have an appreciation for cards that show a countries flag. I love to compare them to our own. And think about whether other countries hold their flags to such high standards as we do here in the US. The stamp on this one was much like others I have gotten from the Netherlands, so I do not feel the need to repost them. =)


A wonderful card from Finland! Kind of odd...but it is still pretty nice. Kinda makes you think doesnt it? I wonder what possessed the photographer to take this picture..and then what intrigued someone so much that they decided to make it into a postcard.

I love the stamp. A little elf or gnome sitting among some foliage. Haven't seen any like that before.

Another beautiful card from Japan! Personally I think waterfalls are the bee's knees..so this postcard is one of my favs. I hope to see places like this at some point. Also I thought it was interesting, she wrote on the back of the card vertically...even though the picture was horizontal. haha. Anyway, the stamps are nice, one is a Bee... and the other is ( I believe) a crane. Both are lovely.

A postcard from TURKEY! Woohoo! I liked that this card was a black and white. There is something about black and white photography that makes me happy. (though personally I rarely shoot in B&W)... The stamp on this one is..well...non-existent cause It was metered by the postal service. Although, there were these nice "Turkiye" stickers on it...which makes me wonder if they mean "Airmail"? haha.


A wonderful postcard from Russia! I love the scene on the front. The building is just so beautiful. Also the stamps on the back. I really enjoy their shape. I really wish the US Postal service would make odd shaped stamps too!

A wonderful card from the Netherlands! I thought this was sooo cute! Astrid told me that Dutch people will have these creatures in their yards. Well, we have them in our yards as well! haha. Though really these creatures look more like 2 of the 7 dwarfs than gnomes. But still a very cute card.

Also, the stamp. It is one I have seen before, but I think it is just lovely as well. The earth shaped like a heart. Perfect.

A wonderfully cute postcard sent to me from Japan! I love the creatures on the front, they are rather simplistic, yet cute. Also the stamps are nice as well. Though I wish the postmark was more clearly visible. =)

A great promo card that I received from Ukraine! I loved the violin on the front. I have always wanted to know how to play violin. The postmark clearly reads "Ukraine" which is nice cause I wasn't sure at first as to where it had come from. The stamp is nice too! I really wish I knew what the front says...oh well.

A postcard from stateside! Portland, Oregon. It looks wonderful from the looks of this card. Haha. The view of Mt. Hood is nice! I bet there is good hiking there. So lets see...this is the second state from the US...only 48 more to go ( not including territories). The postmark and stamp are much the same as on the one from Boston..but why not post the backs too anyway?
