Received from Germany & Poland

Three new ones in from Europe!  Nice diversity of images here.

At the top, from Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany (through Postcrossing, having traveled 6 days and 5,780 miles), comes the jellyfish postcard.  The sender tells me it is by a favorite artist of his, Vlad Gerasimov. I see that the artist primarily creates desktop wallpapers, in a wide variety of styles & subjects–very interesting!  I tried to find postcards in his online shop, but the closest I got was posters.  I told the card’s sender that I am a member of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which houses some amazing jellies.

The second card–with the cute piggies–comes to me from Poland.  It’s also a Postcrossing card, and traveled 7 days and 5,923 miles to find me. The writer tells me (among many other things) that her favorite writer is Harlan Coben.  I like his stuff, too!  Have you ever read his Myron Bolitar novels?  Always full of laughs.  The postcard’s sender tells me that Coben’s books always surprise her.

The third card comes to me from Alzey, Germany, thanks to a swap-bot “where you live” swap.  The sender tells me her town is over 1,750 years old, and is in the middle of Germany’s biggest wine-growing area.

Now, returning to the top & working back down again, get a look at all of these stamps!

So much detail on so many of these stamps, the only way to get a good look at them is to scan them! Or maybe I ought to buy a magnifying glass.
