Hello Lovely people! Here we are again on Tuesday. The week has flown by for me. I have something to look forward to, you see. I'm flying to Holland tomorrow to visit my mother (again). We had gone to stay with her over Christmas and New Year, but I was very ill, so I promised I would come back soon.
Here are some post cards for you. For a change, they are the cards that I have sent this week.
First one is the card with the chilli peppers. It's on its way to Germany. It goes to a young lady that collects red or blue cards. she showed a link to her collection of red cards and she hasn't got this one.This is of course art by Alfons Mucha. This particular one is called The Zodiac. I have a whole book of cards by Mucha because many postcrossers request this sort of card. This artist was on the list of favorites of the lady in Russia that is going to receive this card.
My postoffice lady told me she had new stamps, so of course I had to go along and have a look. This one is for mail inside Europe. It celebrates 100 years since the birth of Camilo José Cela (born 1916), a Spanish author who won the Nobel prize for literature in 1989. He died in 2002.
I love this next stamp. It is all about the potter (el alfarero). It is a large and very glossy stamp. I could only get 10. I wish I could have gotten more....
This yellow stamp with the red carnation is a stamp for outside Europe. It has a letter C on it, meaning that even though the price of the stamp goes up, this stamps will always be valid for mail outside Europe.
One lady in Hershey Pennsylvania collects antique keys. So she has requested cards with keys in them. Luckily I had this card for her and I am sure she will like it.The small jug bottom left, looks like a saké jug. But I don't know this for sure. Probably not, as the artist is Russian.
I don't think a saké jug qualifies me for the T-party. So I will have to find something else that can contain a drink...
How about a contender for the most beautiful teapot ever:
Which one do you like best? My choice would be the first one with the blue and the silver.
That's it from me tonight (I am writing this on Monday night). I'm going to visit Elizabeth and Bluebeard at Altered BookLover for the T-Party.
Have a good week,
