Another bunch of lovely cards have arrived in my mailbox. Sadly, many of the ones I sent have stuck in transit, but that's another post. Someday I may even write it.
Today I have 5 cards from Europe. They are all interesting and quite unusual. See what you think!
First up is this interesting card from Finland. It melds two of my interests, books and writing, so I like it a lot. The sender is a 25 year old woman who loves Japan and wishes she can travel here someday. She used an interesting round stamp as well.
This My Fair Lady card came to me from Ireland and was sent by Melissa. She lives in Dublin and moved there from PEI. I thought it was very cool to receive a card from another ex-pat.

This card came from Gerrit in the Netherlands. I don't have any other information about it. Obviously it is a historic view of a city and since it mentions Rotterdam, I'm assuming that the view is of Rotterdam!
Ola from Krakow in Poland sent this card to me. She bought a series of cards and once in a while someone is lucky enough to receive one of them. She guessed correctly for me as this person was not only a writer of science fiction short stories and novels, but quite a few movies that I enjoy were based on his works.

Els from The Netherlands sent me this card of the detail from "The Creation of Adam". I have almost the same one on my computer as wallpaper. (Mine has the Flying Spaghetti Monster on it though.)
Els suggests that I tell my students about the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.
She also reminded me of the film of The Da Vinci Code which she liked.

There you have it. Five great cards. Any thoughts or comments? Until next time, I'll be waiting for the postman and his noisy motorcycle to bring me some mail!
