Meow's Postcard Exchange

Back in early April, 2006, I put out a post on my main blog, asking if anyone wanted to join a Postcard Exchange ... this is still open. If you would like to join this exchange, just email me with your snail-mail address, and I will send you mine by return email, and there we go !!! Complete discretion is guaranteed ... your postal addresses will remain private and confidential, as (I hope) mine will to you. This blog is to display all the wonderful postcards I have received.

I received another postcard today ... this lovely one from Reverberate, from Atlanta, Georgia. It looks like a big city ... a bit different from what we see on Gone With The Wind !!! I can't imagine Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler here !!! Thanks for the gorgeous card, I love that it isn't just a rectangular card. This one, and the one I received yesterday from New York are interesting shapes.

I was very excited when I went to my letterbox, as there was 3 more postcards from my lovely blogger friends.

The first one was from Dr. Deb, and is from New York. I always have been fascinated by New York, and it has been depicted in so many ways, in so many movies. It looks absolutely enormous ... much bigger than my hometown of Melbourne !! Thanks , Deb, for the great card ... it is so big !!

The next 2 cards both came from Angel Jr., and are both of Caesars Palace, in Las Vegas, Nevada. It appears that Angel has been visiting Las Vegas, and stayed in Caesars Palace. He says that if I ever make it out there, I definately have to check it out. The printed blurb on one of the postcards says ... "From the moment one walks through the doors of Caesars Palace , one has arrived at the most prestigious resort in the world. From the Roman Plaza to the Colosseum, a plethora of entertainment awaits." It looks just amazing, and I always think of old Elvis movies, and Wayne Newton, when I see photos of Las Vegas. Thank you, Angel, for the great cards. Hope the holiday went well.

I received this lovely postcard yesterday from Peg and Bun-Bun, at Penny's From Heaven. She says that "Yes, this is what Iowa looks like. Lots of cornfields and wide open spaces, and lots of farm houses." I have been reading the Little House on the Praire books recently, and I guess this is what I expected the countryside to look like in that era. It looks beautiful. Thank you Peg for your card.

I received this lovely postcard today, posted by Montchan's mum, but written by Montchan and his kitty sibling Tarachan, all the way from Sweden. It had a lovely little note on it from the kitties, and they drew a little self-portrait of themselves. I must say, these kitties are wonderful artists, and write surprisingly well. Thank you, Montchan's mum, for allowing your kitties to send me this wonderful postcard. The pictures thereon are amazing. Ooooh, I still love receiving postcards !!

I'm very excited ... after a break of a couple of weeks, I got 3 new postcards today !!

The first is from Jack, and shows a wonderful picture of Missoula. The text on the backof the card says it is "Missoula Summer Twilight" ... "This panoramic view overlooking Missoula shows a typical summer sunset enjoyed by many visitors and residence that hike the "M" trail. The University of Montana is nesteld at the base of Mount Sentinel and is bordered by the Clark Fork River." Jack says that this is the town he lives in and grew up in. Apparently it was much smaller in the 60s ! It certainly looks like a beautiful place to live. Thank you Jack.

The second card is another one from Marie, who is on a sailing tour. Marie says that they are finally on the west coast of Sweden, sailing in these belautiful waters in the province of Bohuslän. She says it is a very popular sailing destination for boats from Sweden, Norway, Germany, Denmark and Holland. At the moment, they are in the town of Strömstad - the most westerly township in Sweden, just a few kilometers south of the Norwegion border. It looks like they are having an amazing trip ... I would love to do something like that one day. Thanks, Marie, for sharing your travels with me.

This last on is from Peg, and shows a map of Iowa. It is really interesting receiving postcards with maps on them. Being on the other side of the world, I really don't know much about America. These little cards are teaching me little bits and pieces about a part of a world I know nothing about. It is great funl. Thank you, Peg, for the card. It is wonderful.
