From Liset in the Netherlands

I’ve had a bit of a postcard drought lately! But I just got this adorable postcard from Liset in the Netherlands and it made my day!

Liset wrote on the back that autumn is setting in where she lives. It’s the same here so I know how she feels. Here’s how she described it:

Nights are getting colder, the air becomes humid, and I really, really don’t feel like going outside. I prefer staying indoors with a big mug of tea and with the heating turned on!

I feel the same way in autumn and winter Liset!!

From Cici in China

Cici is a 9 year old girl in Guang Zhou, China who (probably with the help of her family) sent me this adorable postcard.

What a cute dog! She also drew on the postcard some flowers and what I believe is the character Totoro. This was very sweet. I love it when Postcrossing becomes a family affair!

From Yoyo in Taiwan

Yoyo chose to go cute and quirky with the postcard she sent me from Taiwan.

I have no idea what the text here says and she didn’t translate for me. Anyone who knows, please feel free to comment! It almost looks like a holiday postcard, but I can’t be sure.

Either way, it is adorable! Thanks Yoyo!

To Sinela in Italy

Sinela did not have a special request for a postcard, so I really just chose one at random. I thought this postcard was cute with the tiny turtle, and hoped she’d like it!

Turns out she did think it was cute! In her receipt message she said, “Thank you so much for the beautiful postcard. It’s so cute the little turtle. I really like it.” I’m glad this was a good choice!

From Barbara in the Netherlands

Barbara sent me this ADORABLE and quirky postcard, which was something I requested in my profile.

These characters are called Foomp according to the description on the back. At first they reminded me of Hoops & Yoyo, but I went to the website and from what I can tell from the images (can’t speak the language, and the translator on Google Chrome wasn’t working), children can make their own Foomp and it’s a big crafting project.

Barbara wrote that she loved crafting with her 4-year-old daughter and is hoping that her new baby will enjoy crafting as well when she is old enough. I bet that they do Foomp projects as a family!

I almost missed it because of the postal stamp, but she wrote by the date that September 15th was her 4th marriage anniversary. September 17th is my husband’s and my anniversary! We celebrated 3 years this year! I forgot to tell Barbara this in my receipt message, but I thought it was pretty neat we have anniversaries that are close to each other!

I loved this postcard and the amount of time Barbara spent writing to me and telling me about her life. Thanks Barbara!

From Muschel Kind in Germany

Here’s another one where I’m not sure if the name is their real name or just their username, but I’ll call her Muschel! Muschel sent me this postcard because she thought the animal was very cute! I requested cute animal postcards in my profile, so I appreciate her taking the time to pick out a card just for me!

Thankfully, Muschel also translated this quote for me. She said that it says,

Go your own way. There is only one way in the world which is made just for you, no one else can go it: Where it leads to? Don’t ask, just go.

What a neat quote! Thank you Muschel for the inspiring words and adorable animal!

From Maria in Belarus

I recently received this cute little postcard from Maria in Belarus. It took 55 days for it to reach me!

This may have been a hand made postcard, as it felt very thin and like a photograph. Either way, the sleepy little fox was adorable and I really appreciated it!
