Postcards

I’m collecting postcards – not only from places far, far away but also from my neighbourhood. The most exciting cards I got in 2012 came from Tokyo. A friend went there and was that nice to send me two cards from there – including a really pretty card from Mt. Fiji.

As I don’t collect postcards by heart (well, collect them by heart :D) and I want to give you a short overview from where I already have postcards (written AND stamped). These countries are bold. While (un) written and unstamped postcards appear in this style.

Be aware, that I love every card, that I receive. Thanks to a few friends, that I don’t want to mention by name I have a super nice collection of Brazilian, British, Croatian, German, French and Italian cards at home!
