From the back of the postcard:

Grant Wood. I am not quite certain why it would be Minnesotan, Grant Wood painted in and is from Iowa, but I think she will like it.
Círio de Nazaré before. This is why I love Postcrossing!.

I have been dying to send this card. "Dot" says that she likes old films. I hope she likes this one! I found a great line from the movie that works well with Postcrossing:
Remember George, No man is a failure who has friends.

My goodness, it takes a long time for postcards to make it from Belarus to Minnesota. It took this postcard 47 days to arrive and it took just as long for the last postcard I received from there to arrive. However, it only took 16 days for a postcard that I sent to arrive there.
It is difficult to tell from the information on the postcard itself, but believe this postcard is of the presbytery of a church in Hajnówka, Poland. Very pretty.

I received these three postcards from Margrit in Switzerland for sending her a copy of the Pez-Santa card I sent to someone else. I have also included the first postage stamps that I have scanned in. I thought they were absolutely wonderful, so I had to share.

Dala Horse in Mora, Minnesota. I chose this card because it reminds me of my childhood. This horse stands just opposite of my grade school and when I was very young my father was one of the people who painted it.
