OFFICIAL Card - Netherlands

This fantastic multi view came to me in a fun tarted up envelope. Why? Because as Veronique the sender wrote "...while writing I love to drink a cup of tea. Please enjoy a cup with me :)" and includes a package of Dutch Grey tea. I have seen requests in the past for teabags, what do you think people do with them? Drink it? Collect it? Other ideas? What would you do if someone sent you a sealed tea bag?

Direct Swap - Samuel & ViVi from Mauritius

Sometimes you cross paths with people online and you can honestly feel their energy. Sometimes it is better than others and this "crossing" ranks high on my list. I don't know how to pinpoint it but some people are just so positive and fun, even though you may only be exchanging a few sentences here and there and bits of information it is just all good. Samuel from Mauritius is certainly one of these people who sticks out in your mind as he is just that friendly! In January we agreed to swap and this is the card he and his wife sent me. That water is so clear and inviting, I love it! Love all of the doodles and drawings on the card too!

OFFICIAL Card - Hong Kong

This card shows a very typical traditional dress for a Chinese woman. I had to chuckle when Alvina wrote that she thinks it is old-fashioned and nowadays no one dresses like this.True perhaps, but she does look beautiful and somewhat classic to me. What do you think?

Thank You Card - Nalini from Trinidad & Tobago

Everyone collects cards differently, some like written and stamped, others the exact opposite, blank and in an envelope. As you can imagine there is also everything in between. Nalini isn't picky and as such I sent her a few cards from her wish list in an envelope. In return, she sent me these beautiful views of Chaguaramas,
Trinidad and Speyside, Tobago. A complete and welcome surprise to see a little slice of her paradise.

OFFICIAL Card - Russia

I have had so many owls flying into my mailbox lately. My daughter is so envious as she just {loves} owls! This one came from Sofia, an owl lover from St Petersburg. What a great picture!
