A Dearth of Peanuts: Sent to China, Germany, Japan, & Taiwan

I’ve been dipping into the Postcrossing Forum again–all of these cards are going out in tag trades.

The first card is off in a wish list tag to a Postcrosser in Tokyo, Japan, who really wants postcards featuring Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” (a movie I always misremember as “Magic Mike.” Some guy’s name, some descriptor, same number of syllables–I dunno).  She prefers her postcards in envelopes, so that she can easily save the stamps, and I happen to have recently unearthed this long-ago homemade envelope, and the card fit!

The crane goes to a bird lover in Neuss, Germany.  She’s a bird lover, so as you’ll see below, I plastered her card with 3 bird stickers, and a bird stamped image–for a grand total of 7 birds.

Don’t think I’ve ever mentioned that I love the food package postcard trades.  The Thrifty ice cream cones are off to Zhongshan, Guangdong, China.

Finally, we get to Lucy.  The Postcrossing Forum Snoopy/Peanuts tag trade goes dormant for weeks–no, months–at a time–due in large part to the fact that such cards are rare finds in many countries, including the U.S., where they are for the most part something available just at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in remote, remote, Santa Rosa, California.  Peanuts everything is everywhere, but yeah, not so much with the postcards.  You could pick up a greeting card at your local supermarkets, but–no postcards.  Lucy up there is a tag-back to someone who tagged me months ago, and with the tag on the last page of the forum, I didn’t want the moderators to delete it, so here we go to Linluo Township, Taiwan.

Stamps, stamps, and washi tape:
