  1. I love all of them!!! If I had them, I would be posting them too. My very favorite is the first blue one of the cats mailing letters. Second favorite is the second one. So you have posted them in exactly the right order! In fact, I like them in the same order that you posted them. We seem to have the same taste.

    1. When choosing cards for this meme, I usually first check if I have some recent cards to fit the theme; as I still haven't really decided how best to sort my growing collection...

    2. I tend to use recent ones as well, partly because I've already blogged some of the old ones and would need to check which. It's funny how the themes so far have all had recent cards available for me.

  2. I love the blue cats, they are obviously enthusiastic postcrossers.

    1. I think the Blue Cat cards are popular with many postcrossers, but I think this is the first one I received myself. I love it! :)

  8. As postcard collector it must be great to have a postcard showing the oldest post office in the world... I didn't know it was in Scotland!!

  9. From the quirky card with the blue cats to the melodramatic vintage and black and whites ... Love them all!
