Postcards for the Weekend: Anything You Wish

DSC02791

Some days bring more surprises than others. Like when the mail lands with a heavy "klonk" on one's doormat and it turns out to be a metallic house-elf (right) apparating from the Czech Republic together with a (postcard) lemur from the Prague Zoo (left)... Even if the sender did not mention it, I bet s/he too must have noted the amusing similarity in facial expression beween the two! 

I made room for the House-Elves sign on the notice board in my study – next to the bookcase where my Harry Potter books live. :)


Moominmamma

Later in the week, I received this Moominmamma card from Finland, which is also currantly (pun intended!) “on display” in my study. A thankyou card for a little surprise that I in turn had recently sent to another postcrosser. The red part of the background is embossed, with a velvety feel to it. The image itself makes me think of my own mum, who used to love picking berries, and making her own jam and such. Also a very welcome reminder of summer, in stark contrast to the still very wintry outdoors world here. (Nature seems totally oblivious to the fact that according to the the calendar we have moved on from February to March this week!)

    1. Sandra, my secret wish is that Dobby (the house-elf) will dust my bookshelves for me at night while I'm sleeping.

    1. She's standing now on top of a chest of drawers next to my computer, so I see her at the corner of my eye while writing... :)

  4. Haha! I can see what you meant about the similar expression on the faces of the lemur and Dobby. The Momminmomma is sooo lovely! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Surprise is the best about mail, isn't it? I would also display the Moominmamma postcard while waiting for the summer to arrive... The colours are so nice!
    By the way, you're right: the similarity on the faces is almost scaring!
