Fairy tales and cheese.

1115 - Veronika from Russia sent me this postcrossing card (RU-2166217) which arrived on 26th November. It looks like the sort of picture found in old fairy tales books.

 I'm not sure who the artist is - perhaps some Russian speaker could enlighten me?

1116 – A wonderful selection of cheeses on this postcrossing card from Johanna in Germany (DE-2667852). If you want to see the individual cheeses you can click on the picture to enlarge it.

The Marigold is quite a common card on German cards and I’ve seen the Tulip before but this is the first time I’ve seen the lovely Lily-of-the-Valley stamp.


  1. Nice postcards! Specially the second "cowpostcard" :D
    I like this postcards showing multiple things; you can learn a lot from them!

  2. The translation to Russian card:
    With laconic, expressive means, the reliability of the landscape the theme of love, beauty and fidelity, whose symbol in Russia long been considered a pair of white swans are shown in this picture.


Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
