Collecting the States - 6 - Wisconsin

A postcard from Amanda. It is another state I needed to cross off my list. It kind of suits the stereotypes, huh? Dairy cows are a common sight up here, too. It just looks kind of peaceful. Here is the stamp:

Canadian Connection - 5 - Niagara Falls

The delightful Care mistakenly spent her anniversary in the wrong part of Canada; but she at least was nice enough to think of me and send me a card! I love Niagara Falls so I suppose I can understand why someone would want to take an anniversary trip there. Isn't it gorgeous? When I graduated from university I treated myself to a trip to Niagara Falls and Toronto. I can't wait to visit again someday!

23 - Postcard from Malaysia

A postcard from Malaysia! Very cool! I think it is a good representation of what they have going on. It was received through postcrossing. I am really enjoying receiving all the different cards. I think this is my first postcard from Malaysia. I am not positive, though. I haven't organized my cards in a while...

Here is the stamp:

22 - Postcard from a Christmas card

This cute postcard came in one of my Christmas cards from MsBookish. She is a fellow blogger that I have gotten to know recently through Twitter. She likes books and postcards, so I was delighted she sent me a postcard with my card. So delighted that I might have bought the set because I enjoy them so much! Thanks Belle!

This postcard is unused.

21 - Postcard from Thailand

This postcard is from a postcrosser in Thailand. I have a few postcards from there because my mother was on a cruise, but this is the first one someone has mailed from there. I was excited! The postcrosser mentions that it is winter there, but still warm. It is not warm here!

Here are the stamps:

Collecting the States - 5 - Connecticut

Another postcard that a nice Postcrossing person sent me when I messaged them mentioning I still needed the state. It is a great postcard for me, too. I love lighthouses! It is the Saybrook Breakwater Lighthouse. It was built in 1886.  Here are the stamps that were included:

20 - Postcard from Poland

A postcrosser in Poland sent me this drawing as a postcard. I have to admit I have mixed feelings about not actually receiving an actual postcard, but that's not to say that I don't like it... As I said, it is a mixed bag! I am still including on here because it was received through postcrossing.
