Holy two weeks later and Happy Saturday, readers? Remember me? The gal that is supposed to be the author of this blog? I have totally fallen off of the face of the Earth when it comes to updating and even sending mail! I feel like a failure. I cant not explain to you how much mail I have to photograph and catch you all up on, letters that need reply are (still) piling up and swaps are coming due left and right! What is a girl to do???
Thanks to everyone who sent me an e-mail or dropped by the Facebook Page to check on me. I've got a lot to do so lets jump in to some mail!
Anna and her family send an artist rendering of St. Petersburg, Russia's Summer Garden!
Along for the ride comes a Russian stamp that I have never gotten before :)
From Bangalore, India, Col. Akhil sends a card showing off the architectural beauty of The Five Rathas (or chariots)--a set of five rock temples surrounded by a sandy compound!
A bright and lovely view of the Bear Rocks area in what is called the Dolly Sods Wilderness. I have never been to West Virgina but with views like this, I may have to reconsider! Thank you to Kyra for sharing.
Some new stamps from Germany make their way to my mailbox today....
...attached to this whimsical and weird postcard from Chan :)
Veronika in the Czech Republic sends a card featuring a few cartoon heroes! The comic is called "Ctyrlistek" which means Four Leaf Clover! Ha, this is a pretty cool card, thank you Veronika :D
I just loved the Jungle Book! Even though the Tiger was my favorite character, I was glad to find Baloo and Mowgli in my stack of postcards. It really made me smile because this afternoon in the bank a man was reading the book to his daughter while they waited to be seen by a banker :) Thank you to Jennifer in California for sharing!
I've said it a thousand times but I just love getting an art card in the mail. Finally, a Picasso! "Reclining Nude" (1932). Oil on canvas.
Hooray for a Waldo card!!!! I really should buy this set to send out seeing as I get excited every time they come in! I don't feel like Waldo was actually trying to hide this time buuuuut kudos if you can find: a snowman on skis, someone taking a photo, and a girl without her skates :)
From Erika comes a view of The Biltmore Estate in Ashville, NC. This home is the largest in the United States.
A letter comes from Tamara!
A very pretty card with a great letter inside makes its way from Kimberly!
That's all for me today readers! I have a ton of work to do to get back to all of my great pen pals! I hope you all are having a great weekend, I'll try to not disappear for so long again! Happy Mailing x0x0 randi
