this is the cool norwegian stamp:
Here is my latest Moomin card, an official card from Taikatuutuu in Espoo, Finland. Note the fun shape! It is of the character Little Myy. I am so crazy about Moomin!
a card from Silvermel for the toys tag
this very cool card is from my friend and fellow postcrosser baranpower. She thoughtfully picked up this card for me at Pitchfork. She’s a sweetie!
Today I hit the jackpot: one official card, one tag, and one card from a friend!
This cool card was made for me by Hattu in Germany. It’s for the “recommend a book to me” tag. The card shows the cover of the book recommended to me; Zu Hause (At Home). Hattu writes, “It tells the story of Larus. Laurus lives in Hamburg and returns back to Iceland (his former home) for X-mas. But his journey fastly spirals out of control and soon the fact that he is declared dead in Iceland is his smallest problem. The book impressed me very much and the rights shortly sold to the U.S.” My first handmade card too, and the book sounds good!
Today I got an official card from Australia. My first Australian card! It’s from Wildrose (Jenni) in Adelelaide, South Australia.
It also had such a cool stamp!
This awesome card is an official one received from Karen in Finland. She obliged my love for Moomin!
My first card from Poland! It is an official one from Basia. I showed it to my friend Margo from Poland and she was so happy to see it. Basia says “according to legend, the dragon lived in a cave under the castle and terrorized the whole city until an ingenious shoemaker fed it a sheep stuffed with phsophorus. The dragon exploded, but apparently the city missed him as they build him a monument.”
One of my oldest and dearest friends in the universe is Carol. She knows of my weird postcard thing and sent me this from her vacation at her mom’s, where there are wild ponies just like in the card. She recommends reading Her Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik in her card. Go get it!
I got this fantastic Moomin card today as an official card from Maija in Finland. She was nice enough to translate the card for me, which she said loosely means, “May happiness be with you on your life’s journey and a good friend to be with you all the time.”
Check out this card from Karen in SD. (US to US tag again. I’m hooked!) Paha Ska, according to the card, is a Sioux artist, most noted for painting Sioux legends on animal hides. This card is really awesome because my husband used to live right by Mount Rushmore, so he really dug it.
Whew! I’m all caught up as of this moment. Who knows what will come in the mailbox tomorrow????

i’m housesitting for my mom all week, so I have internet access but am not at home to get my mail. Luckily my long suffering husband is dutifully calling me and telling me about the postcards that are arriving. There will be lots for me to scan when I get home in a week!

I had been feeling down about postcrossing lately because i’ve not heard from people whether or not they received my cards in tags. But getting 4 lovely cards in one day totally cheered me up! Now i have to come up with a cool way to display or store all my postcrossing cards, anyone have cool ideas?
