If there is one theme on postcards that I like without exception it is reading - women reading (the most common), men reading, children reading, animals reading...  Most of m,y friends are well aware of this and as a result I get quite a lot of them.  Here are just a few of the latest ones.

4267 - from Renate in Austria.

By Austrian artist Franz von Defregger (1835-1921).  And this was the super stamp on the card.

4282 - From Susanne in Germany.   By Carl Larsson (1853-1919)

4273 - Another from Susanne. The bookworm by H Fenner-Behmer.

4225 - From Eva in Morocco.  By Rene Magritte.

4239 - From Heleen in the Netherlands.  'I always stay with you' by Sjoerd Kuijper.

4252 - Owl by Jorg Block  from Susanne.

4253 - also from Susanne.

4254 - And another of Susanne's.  "Sitting nude with pillow" 1911 by  August Mackie.

4258 - Susanne -

4259 - Susanne - Findus by Sven Nordqvist.

4261 - Yet another from my German friend, Susanne.

4309 - From my generous Susanne by Rudi Herzlmeier.  I can't tell if the budgerigar is reading as well!

4319 - From Heleen in the Netherlands.  This Rembrandt card came from the Rijksmuseum.  The painting dates from 1662.

4314 - From Heleen.  Old woman reading by Gerard Dou.  This face has such character.

I have received many more but I had better leave it there for now.  I hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I enjoyed receiving (and of course READING them).

  1. 4309 Budgerigars rarely speak dog so I think it unlikely it was reading. 4314. That face really is so full of character.


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