To Joe in China (Direct Swap)

  

Joe contacted me a month or so ago about swapping postcards. He wanted a very specific postcard that I sent to Ksenia in Russia. I have not been able to find another copy of that postcard, but I was able to find this postcard. What Joe liked about that postcard was the bridge, so I thought he might like this one of the Third Avenue Bridge. I sent him a picture of it and he did so I am mailing this out as soon as he sends me his address.

To Olli-Pekka in Finland


Olli-Pekka says that he likes owls. I think that this is a great postcard of a Great Grey Owl. I hope he enjoys it! I only remember seeing one once. It was about 25 years ago. I looked out of the window and saw one sitting on a fence post. It was very cool.

To Pat in the United Kingdom (Direct Swap)

We had many wild pheasants like this on our family farm when I was growing up. My father used to collect the tail feathers for me. I think they are quite pretty birds.

From Luis in Spain


A pretty postcard and a fun stamp too:

From Emma in Taiwan


Emma from Taiwan sent me this postcard sometime around January 24. It took about 70 days to get here, so she even sent me this second postcard in the meantime. This postcard is really fun. This design below works together to make the set up below it.




And she included these pretty stamps:

MINNESOTA FISH HOUSES
When the lakes freeze over small villages of fish houses appear. These villages on ice are the haunts of "Grumpy Old Men."
