Weekend Postcards: A Touch of Magic

The postcards dropping in this week all had a touch of magic to them,
one way or another…

It's magic time...

From Maria in Singapore:
A “more-cute-than-spooky” Halloween greeting

De lezende kip

From Jarina in the NL: De lezende kip / Reading Hen
(gevelsteen/gable stone from Amsterdam)

Gable stones came into use in the 16th century, in the days before house numbers, taking over from hanging signs as a way of --- identifying and adorning a house. The tradition is alive and has moved with the times – new stones are still commissioned, and in Amsterdam, many old ones have been conserved. [Wikipedia]

Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italy

From Ginny:
Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italy (in magic evening light)

Mersey Morning Ferry

From GB: The Mersey Morning Ferry, Liverpool
(in magic morning mist)

181020-181023 from John

From John: Landscape of the Albert Dock, Liverpool - “bathed in winter sunshine”
(photograph, but reminds me of paintings by William Turner)

The Liverpool cards also came with magic Harry Potter stamps Smile




  1. they are bathed in LIGHT and I do love LIGHT... the ferry and the dock are amazing,

  2. A truly magical collection there! I love the Harry Potter stamps and think I want to play one of my HP computer games again soon - have not done so all year yet.

  3. Great postcards, love the one from Singapore.

  4. I love ALL of them!! I did not know about Gable Stones, this is a cool thing to find out. Favorites are mine, of course (thanks!). And the Mersey Ferry, with a lone seagull in the fog. Remember that song, by Gerry & The Pacemakers?

  5. I got to the Cinque Terre post card and was looking closely because I was there six years ago. Then I saw the Mersey ferry and the Albert Dock and it was quite strange looking at them on your blog.
