Greetings from the World

In case someone is curious how things are going with my new Postcrossing hobby: Cards keep dropping in. Four last week, and today I got three!

Here is a collage of all eight received so far:

Postcrossing 130610

From: Netherlands x 2, China, Lituania,
Norway, Portugal, England, Germany.

This beautiful card from China had really pretty stamps as well:

    1. For various reasons I will not (as s rule) be showing images of the Swedish postcards that I send. For one thing that would feel like a more systematic breach of copyright rules than showing some random cards from all over the world.

  3. so nice!

    and a nice coincidence to find you taking up this topic today:
    I just joined postcrossing this afternoon and wrote my first postcard to ... belarus.

    now I am hooked ;-)

    1. Happy postcrossing! Be patient, it might take a little time before the first cards start dropping in. :)

  4. The Chinese stamps are indeed wonderful! And do I detect an Alfons Mucha in the lower left corner of your collage?

    1. Yes Meike, you have a keen eye... Alfons Mucha, Flower, Paris 1897. The card came to me from Norway.

  8. I have been taken with the most recent app for my iPhone which enables me to send a post card with my own photo direct from my phone. Definitely not in the Postcrossing tradition but pretty good for getting a non virtual message to someone.

  9. I know we can do that via the Swedish postal service's website (maybe they've also got a phone app, I haven't checked). I've never tried it so far. I have bought self-adhesive postcard backsides to use with photos printed on my own printer though. I use those for sending personal greetings to friends. (So far I've not used my own photos in postcrossing context, but I might, depending on what kind of preferences recipients list in their profile.)
