Valmeira Town Millpond

Pin It

postcards, Latvia

Here is another card from Anna who also sent me the Ireland map card. This beautiful pond is located in Valmeira where she lives.

Just so you know this is actually pronounced as “Wolmar” in German. This city is the largest in the historical Vidzeme region in Latvia.

This looks like a very relaxing place to visit on a lazy Sunday afternoon, won’t you agree? I wonder if people are allowed to swim in the pond.

Thanks again Anna, I really like this card!┬á ­čśÇ

Massachusetts State Map Card

Pin It

postcards, map cards, 50 US States map cards

Here is another beautiful map card to add to my 50 US States map card collection.

This map card features some of the most famous landmarks in Massachusetts, including the Capitol Building, Faneuil Hall, Pilgrim Memorial and Maple Sugar. It also shows the industries in which the State is well-known for like fishing, paper mills, jewelry, textile, chemicals and shoes. I bet you can also find a couple of┬áflyer prints┬ácompany in this state even when the map card won’t show it.

The map card also shows a couple of interesting information about the state of Massachussets:

  • State Capital ~ Boston
  • State Bird ~ Chickadee
  • State Flower ~ Arbutus

Kelly who send this card lives in Pittsfield, a 3-hour drive from the state capital that has mountains and beautiful beaches as well as lighthouses in the coast.

A Map Card of Ireland

Pin It

postcards, map cards, Ireland

Here is another map card to add to my growing collection.

Thought you might want to know about these interesting facts about Ireland:

  • Ireland is the third largest island in Europe and the twentieth on Earth
  • It is politically divided into 2, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland which is part of United Kingdom
  • The Capital City of the Republic of Ireland is Dublin
  • Belfast, on the other hand, is the largets city in Northern Ireland
  • There are 3 UNESCO World Heritage Site in Ireland ~┬á┬áBr├║ na Boinne in County Meath,┬áSkellig Michael in County Kerry┬áand the┬áGiant’s Causeway in County Antrim

With abundant rainfall in Ireland, am guessing they’d be needing to shop for jackets and other similar apparel from┬ámore often.

Thank you Anna for this colorful map card. It is now one of my favorites, too!┬á ­čśÇ

My Very First Jetoy Card

Pin It

postcards, direct swap, Jetoy cards, special cards

I am not really too fond of cats but who will never fall in love with this beautiful Jetoy card, right? This is the very first in my collection and was sent to me by Kelly, the same person who gave me a map card of Massachusetts.

Since I am not that crazy about cats, I chose this one from her stash of Jetoy cards, I think the pig is just too cute and the horse is too lovely! Jetoy cards originated from Korea and from what I gathered it seemed like the cat characters are based on a local fairy tale or story that features these cats, Choo Choo, who live in the planet called Jetoy.

Thank you Kelly for this beautiful card, I totally love it!┬á ­čśÇ

Tinkerbell Shaped Postcard

Pin It

postcards, special postcards, Cartoons Postcards

Check out this lovely memento I got from the recent Postcrossing Philippines meet-up in Manila. it was a shaped ┬áTinkerbell card. The special card is also in commemoration of Disney’s 110th anniversary.

Isn’t she lovely? It brings to mind the lovely Disney World, complete with all the beautiful cartoon characters that me and my little man love, as well as the dazzling fireworks, the grand fountains and led pool lights. How I love to visit that place one day! Apart from that, this actually inspired me to collect more shaped cards to add to my growing collection. Hopefully, I can find more people to swap these cards with. I also hope I can find shaped cards locally.

Thank you so much mommy Clang for sending this! ^_^
