I’ve had my Postcrossing account on inactive since mid-May, with holidays, medical procedures and a house move it’s been best to keep the cards owing. I maxed out my account a couple of times and ended up with I think twenty five ish cards owing…so here’s the 22 I’ve received in the last couple of weeks 🙂
For ease of viewing I have created subsets in my collection:
The German collection
The largest country subset of my recently received cards, they’ve varied in travel time from a few days to several weeks – one after 2 weeks travel just said greetings from Germany so it feels like there was little effort involved, but others have lovely long messages that show they really read my profile. It’s great to have that connection 🙂 The sender of the beautiful ocean scene just celebrated his first Postcrossing birthday, and the sender of the yellow quote card shares my birthday! I like the quote cards too, it’s like an extra message in the design 🙂
The European collection
A varied set from elsewhere in Europe. From top left and going across in rows: 2 cards from Finland, Paris from Czech Republic and Latvia, a lovely sunset over the Black Sea from Bulgaria, France (with cute donkey), Portugal with poetic quote, a great folded card from the Netherlands, a beautiful view from Lithuania, and Czech Republic chocolate 🙂
The rest of the world collection
Even more cards! From top left: Jebbett Farm in New York State USA owned by the neighbours of the sender, a weird but cute bear creature from Taiwan, a beautiful nebula under a city from Ukraine, angels and a classic but great view of Saint Basil’s cathedral from Russia, Mount Fuji from Japan, and some sort of inflatable soldiers from Taiwan.
The blue bear from Taiwan is an interesting card – the sender wrote that she forgot to send it a year ago then left home for a while. By the time I tried to register the card, the ID had expired. I messaged a Postcrosser who I thought was the sender and unfortunately her reply made very little sense! I don’t think I’d even remember about an unsent card a year later…
Some favourites among the many stamps:
And fascinatingly from Germany, Lithuania and Czech Republic…
Now I need to send some more cards!
