From the UK

I rarely get cards from the UK and I was in a rush to find one for this week's link up so I ended up with a card that my friend Danielle actually sent from the USA!  It is typically British.

I shall  try to do a better post next week...

4027 - from Anastasia in Belarus - note the little bird and squirrel


2900 - But, fof me, this one from Hanka in the Czech Republic is the ultimate view of serene (klid a ticho means 'peace and silence').

Since I am grateful for all the cards I receive I could have picked any card from my collection.  However, I settled for these -

0001 From Kseniya in Belarus - I'm grateful for all snail-mail.



0012 From Monica in Sweden -I am always grateful for flowers that peep through snow -


2179 - From Anastasia in Belarus.  I am, of course, exceedingly grateful for my new grandchildren.


2188 From Monica in Sweden - I am always grateful for the collection of family photos on the dresser and the happy days they represent.

2328 - From Sini whose travels from Finland take her all over the world.  A classic example of my gratitude for friends who think of me while on their travels.



3012 From EJ in The Netherlands - And we are all grateful to the postmen who deliver our mail.

Trains and trams

This post is linked to Maria’s Postcards for the Weekend.  If you would like to see other folk’s posts on this subject please visit Maria’s blog and follow the links.  They are always well worth viewing.



Trains and trams are not a subject I particularly collect so I more often send them than receive them.  This is one I sent to Yoshio in my early days of Postcrossing.


This is one I sent to JarieLyn, an acquaintance in the USA who collects train postcards.  You may recognise it - it's the Hogwarts Express from Harry Potter.  It runs up part of the West coast of Scotland and Partner-who-loves-tea and I saw it a couple of years ago.


1564 - From JarieLyn in the USA.


1526 From Natallia in Belarus - a super card which the trains merely create the background for.
