Postcards from blogging friends

You may remember that I recently published two posts about the fact that the sending of postcards is dying out.

I made the request for my readers and followers to send me picture postcards to enjoy, and to save for posterity.
I am pleased to say that many of you responded, and here they are.

From Paul S, in England.
A vintage postcard depicting Lake Como, in Italy.

From the lovely Karolina, who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.

From the British blogger, ‘mybeautifulbritain’, who used their own photos to create a unique card for me.

From my long-time cherished blogging friend, Fraggle.
She chose a vintage representation of one of my favourite UK castles.

From Elizabeth, an American blogger who resides in New England.
She chose Californian Sea Otters, her favourite animals.

From the wonderful Lara, who thought it was my birthday, for some reason.
Her husband is from New York, so she chose a card featuring that city.

Wilma is from The Philippines, but has made her home in Chicago.
She sent me a view of ‘The Windy City’.

David Miller, one of my oldest blogging friends, sent me this view of Las Vegas.
It is suitably ‘glitzy’, as the card is covered in glitter!

As you can see, I didn’t make a song and dance about getting ‘perfect’ photos of the cards, but I was immensely grateful to receive them all.

If anyone else would like to post one to me, you can read my address easily, and your card will be featured in Part Two.
Thanks again to all of you who took the time and trouble to send me a card.

  1. It reminds me of the collections that always peppered the walls of the local laundrette, barbers shop, garage…or was that just my home town πŸ™‚ Nice selection, I must go out to the big city and see if I can find a suitable card of JP II πŸ™‚

      1. I never got to meet my Great Uncle Lon Jr but Uncle Michael Landon said he was a riot of fun. Story goes he turned up at a family xmas meal with a bottle of whisky in both hands, two gorgeous ladies by his side and a whole cow carcass on his shoulders. And grinned from ear to ear πŸ™‚

  2. I recently received a reproduction postcard of a WWII poster “Is Your Journey Really Necessary?” from the Imperial War Museum. I used to send and receive postcards all the time, but learned too late to safe them.
    You have some terrific ones here!!
