Postcards for the Weekend

Making things simple for myself with the “Anything You Wish” theme this week… All of these cards dropped in this past week; and quite by chance, they all also happen to share at least two other themes: art/illustrations, and animals!

170926-171009 from Ginny 1722

These lovely deer came running on Monday
(from Ginny in the US, Virginia)

On Tuesday, this Night Watch owl came flying in from Russia
(postcrossing) … (please note the watch – so funny!)

171010 US-4915370

… in the company of a cute swimming seal sea otter from California

Scotch Moorland

These highland cattle came wandering my way on Thursday
(vintage card sent by John in England) …

171007-171013 from Jarina 0062

… followed by a bunch of rabbits and a mouse seeking shelter from the rain on Friday
(from Jarina in the Netherlands)

All in all, my mailbox was rather happy this week! Smile

(Thanks to everyone who contributed!)

Weekend Linky Party:

Postcards for the Weekend 57: Anything You Wish


  1. I love them ALL! Of course I like mine BUT, I love the owl, and the otter looks embroidered! But I suppose it is just a picture of an embroidery. The mountains are such a pretty pastel. And the rabbits and mice look like Beatrix Potter!

  2. These are lovely. And each one so different from the other. Is that really a hand-made card of the otter?

    1. Violet, it is a photo postcard of an hand-sewn piece of art. (Don't know the original size of it. Printed text on the back says: "Sewing mends the soul. (hand-sewn postcards and photographs by 'Jinn'Bug)"

  3. Beautiful cards! And like the others here, I think your seal is an otter ;-)

  4. These postcards are all so cute!! They made me smile. Thanks so much for sharing Monica! Have a nice week ahead.

  5. Also my mouth turns into a broad smile. seeing these wonderful postcards!
    The Owl, the Otter and the Cows are definitely my favourites! Fortunately neither you nor I have to choose :-)

  6. Thanks everyone for your comments on the postcards. And as some of you have pointed out, the 'seal' is probably an otter! But I suppose it must be a Californian sea otter then... What made me think 'seal' is probably the fact that it's holding a starfish in the image (and an otter to me is a smaller freshwater animal with a more weasel-like face).

  7. It's lovely to be able to see cards from all over the place on various blogs without having to join Post Crossing! Mind you I send a lot of cards anyway - just not in an organised fashion.
