A miscellany

This post is linked to Maria’s Postcards for the Weekend which this week is ‘Anything you wish’.   If you would like to see what other folk have chosen to post on this ‘free’ week please visit Maria’s blog and follow the links.  They are always well worth viewing.

Here are just a few of the wonderful cards I have received in the past couple of months.

4266 From Susanne in Germany – one of the super Findus and Pettson cards by Swedish author Sven Nordqvist.

4269 From Monica in Sweden – Barn Elves by Eva Wilsson

4307 Malaga in Spain from Eva in Morocco.

4308 From Danielle in the USA – The Knitting Girl (1869) by William-Adolphe Bouguereau.

 4313 From Heleen in the Netherlands – the Rijksmuseum library.

4327 And another elf – this time one of Lennart Helje’s – the King of the Forest – from Monica.

 4328 Finally, from Susanne again – one of my favourite reading woman cards – 


  1. I'm glad to know that the postcard from Malaga arrived. I posted it in a hidden mailbox!

    All the postcards you published today are great. My favourite is that knitting girl.

  2. An interesting collection, but I have to say that Pettson and Findus is my favourite!

  3. This assortment is just refreshing, John! It's great to see a miscellany every now and then. Thanks for sharing your recently received postcards.

  4. Beautiful collection! I love the illustrated postcards, Findus and Pettson always make me smile. The barn elves card is so atmospheric. And the kintting and reading women show up on wonderful works of art. Thank you for sharing!


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