Postcards From the World: Bookish

I’m a sucker for a bookish postcard, so I had to share this Postcrossing card I received from a Postcrosser named Paula in Texas. Paula loves to read and to travel, as I do. Though she didn’t have room to say a lot in her card, I got the feeling we’d be friends, if weContinue reading “Postcards From the World: Bookish”

Postcards from the World: Draco

Here is another cool Postcrossing card! This atmospheric shot of Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince came recently from Corey, a U.S. Postcrosser in Denver, Colorado. Corey seems like as big a Harry Potter fan as I am; she put stickers of two of my favorite characters, Hermione Granger and Professor McGonagall.Continue reading “Postcards from the World: Draco”

Postcards from the World: Still Life with Books

I haven’t posted lately about any Postcrossing cards I’ve received, but this one deserves to be shared. This postcard arrived from Jana in Czechia. She chose it because I wrote in my profile about how much I love reading books. There is no indication of the artist’s name or the title of the work, butContinue reading “Postcards from the World: Still Life with Books”

Month of Letters, Day 28

Wow, the Month of Letters challenge is almost over for 2020! I meant to mail some actual penpal-type letters on Friday, February 28, but we had some drama at home concerning my son’s desperate rush to complete an English assignment that absolutely, positively had to get submitted online to the teacher — and that requiredContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 28”

Month of Letters, Day 27

Two outgoing letters today, the 27th day of February. So far I seem to have written to a lot more LetterMo participants than have written me back, so I’ll probably be inundated with replies these last few days of the month. To St. Petersburg, Russia, I sent a Postcrossing card that’s a reproduction of aContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 27”

Month of Letters, Day 26

Yesterday was Wednesday, February 26. As the Month of Letters winds down, I am still doing my best to mail something every day. Or four somethings, three of which were Postcrossing cards : To Huntsville, Alabama, a letter to a LetterMo participant. This is my second letter to her this month, and is in responseContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 26”

Month of Letters, Day 22 and Day 23

Just one letter mailed yesterday (Saturday, February 22) as part of the Month of Letters challenge. But I’m traveling, so at least I was able to send from a new spot, a box in a student dining hall at James Madison University, while waiting for my son’s turn to audition for All-State Orchestra. The letterContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 22 and Day 23”
