Ooooh, More Postcards ...

It was exciting checking my mail yesterday ... there were 5 postcards from my dear blogging friends.

The first one is from Feathers, and shows a beautiful night shot of Chicago. She said she tried to affix herself to the postcard, but it didn't work !!! That is so sweet, Feathers :)

The next one is from Nikki (Connie's niece), and is from Texas. It shows a variety of things, and is wonderful.

The next is another one from Dick & Huggy, and it shows all the beautiful tulips at Tulip Town. My goodness, they are so beautiful.

Here is one from Connie, from St Louis. It has a lovely cut-out heart (gosh, the postal system is rough on postcards ... unfortunately this one arrived a bit torn ... but beautiful none-the-less), and an amazing night time view ... what a gorgeous city.

Last but not least, one from Friday's Child, all the way from the Philippines. The views on the card look just amazing. It is of the Banaue Rice Terraces overlooking Batad Village, and is considered the eighth wonder of the world.

Thank you, dear friends ... this is really interesting, receiving so many beautiful cards. Thank you for taking the time to pick out such lovely ones.

Hope your week is going well.

Take care,




Saw my postcard. Good it arrived early. Banaue rice terraces is hand made by the Ifugaos many long years ago. Isn't that wonderful. Love other postcards too.

Connie and Rob said...

You are getting quite the collection!

Next time I think I am going to have to pick a more durable postcard from St. Louis. This is so much fun.

Take care,

Postcards are fun. I started a collection because Neurotic Miss from Letters To The Universe (don't know how to link her on comments) sent me one.
I'm going to send you one, just as soon as we exchange info.

Cinthia said...

I don't believe I've got your mailing address, Meow, or do I? Would you mind sending it to me (again)?


Tab said...

Hey those a great!

Alice said...

Hi Meow! Sorry, sorry I haven't been by for so long, as you gathered from my Blog things have been on top of me a little lately.

But I'm here now and ready for action. I'll be back checking your posts to catch up but just wanted to let you know that I'm back (both Blogging and commenting) and am carrying on as normal.

Love the postcards. My favourite one is the one with the flowers.

I adore flowers. Prefer trees though, weird as that is.

See you again soon xxx

Jamie Dawn said...

Very cool postcards! How fun to go to the mail box with anticipation each day!!

My daugher has three pen pals from around the world. We all get excited when she receives a new letter.

I've been up to the top of the St. Louis Arch. It was really fun and kind of scary too. There are windows at the top, and you look out of them. It feels very weird up there.

Bar Bar A said...

I am sorry to take so long to get you my post card!

Meow said...

Connie ... yes, it is quite a collection so far. It is lots of fun.

Reverberate ... thank you, and blogging buddies are simply the best.

Angel ... I have emailed you with my details ... hope you send me yours, too !!

Dr Deb ... yep, it sure is ... wanna join ?

DaybyDay ... they sure are. Thank you.

Cinthia ... I have emailed you.

Tab ... thank you.

Alice ... welcome back, and yes ... I have been keeping up with you via your blog. Hope all is ok now.

Jamie ... wow, that must be great going to the top of the arch ... I imagine it would be kinda scary. Penpals are fun, I bet your daughter enjoys them.

Barbara ... that's ok ... it's not a problem. Hope you are doing OK.

Take care, my friends, and have a wonderful day ... Meow

Ivy the Goober said...

How fun! It is still a lot of fun to get things in snail mail isn't it? I mean other than bills and ads. :)

Meow said...

Ivy ... Yes, it is so cool getting fun mail !! Bills .. patoooey !
Take care, Meow

Badoozie said...

Cathy said...

I am getting worried because I mailed you a parcel a really really long time ago and I am guessing you haven't received it yet?...:(

Meow said...

Susie ... I'll be watching out. And, you are welcome !!

Cathy ... noooo, I haven't received your parcel ... I would've let you know immediately had I received it. Hope it hasn't gone missing. I'm sure it will turn up ... Australia Post is reaaaaallllly slow !!

Take care, Ladies ... Meow

Diane said...

It's exciting to visit you and your friends and see all the different post cards from different cities and countries. ;)

Happy Friday, and hope you enjoy your weekend, Meow. :)

Jenn said...

Wow, you are getting quite a collection there. That Phillipines one is something I've never seen before. Very cool.

Peter said...

Hi Meow, re your comment about having your browser sidebar visible,I nearly always do, but with the 17" screen that's never a problem.
On the old laptop quite a few blogs needed all the space available to stop things like sidebars going to the bottom of the page happening.
Really strange, on firefox I have.
"Your Comments Are Most Welcome" spread over two lines, when viewed with IE it reverts back to a single line, it just doesn't read the change to html code that tells it to change.
So you were probably right when you said it was browser related that someone was having trouble viewing your photos, I think I may have already said that I find firefox far better than IE.

Michelle said...

LOL @ "wanting to attach herself to the postcard"!!
Everyone's postcards are so vibrant and beautiful, i loved the one from the Philipines :o)

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Wonderful. The cards remind me of where I have been and where I would like to go. Thanks for sharing.

Nicole said...

I have received two so far (one from you and the other from nikki) and I totally agree.... it is so much fun. hugs xox

Meow said...

Diane ... thank you, it is really great fun, and very exciting. I'm glad I can share them with everyone else.

Jenn ... thank you ... yep, the Philippines one is really beautiful. I think I would like that as a big picture on my wall, or desktop !! Or any of the others, too, for that matter.

Peter ... don't know if I was any help, but all looks OK now.

Michelle ... cute comment, wasn't it !! Feathers is a sweetie. And I think all the cards are gorgeous.

Nick ... thank you, and you are welcome ... hope you get to do those travels soon !! Can I join you ?

Nicole ... I am having a ball !! Thanks for being a part of it !

Take care everyone, have a great day ... Meow

Dick said...

I'm glad to see that mine got there. I sometimes find the PO doesn't seem to place as much importance on postcards as they do on letter mail and they seem to occasionally never arrive. I may send others as time goes on & I find something unique. I also may try making one of my own from my photos.

dragonflyfilly said...

let me know if you would like me to send you a postcard from Canada, and how i would go about doing that

cheers from Beautiful British Columbia,

Meow said...

Dick ... let me know how you go with making your own ... I'd like to do that, too. Thank you so much for sending the cards, they are wonderful. Give Huggy a smooch for me, please.

Dragonflyfilly ... I would love a postcard from you, if you want to send one ... just email me your address, and I will email you back with mine. Thank you.

Take care, friends ... Meow
