Some odds and ends

I am hoping to start blogging again a few of the postcards I receive.  Here are one or two random ones from earlier this year.

2967 - from Susanne in Germany

3058 - From Anastasia in Belarus

with typically beautiful Belarusian stamps

3079 - Heleen in The Netherlands sent me this wonderful Carl Spitzweg painting 'The Eternal Bridegroom' from 1855-60.

and more delightful stamps

3071 - Albert Anker's 'Little Girl Writing' from Susanne -

Hopefully I shall be doing posts themed about cats, post, and places in the near future.  In the meanwhile, books remain a perennially well-received theme.

4011 - From Danielle in the USA


  1. All these are beauties. I've received the first one, and I don't know if I ass it to the "Reading Women" album...

  2. The first picture is both original and charming and I'd love that as a picture. Then I came to the second and my infatuation with people and windows (together) immediately ensured that I was smitten.

  3. They're all charming but that first one is really special!


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