We’ll get to the “room for stamps” bit shortly, but first: 17 postcard sends represented this time, so let’s get to it!
I clicked on “send a postcard” on Postcard United! This California map is bound for Longhua, Shenzhen, China. A second click sends another copy of the card to a map lover in Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.
Another click on Postcard United sends this card to a map lover in JiangSu, China.
The Queen of Hearts is going to Foshan, Guangdong, China
Ursula is off to Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Japan.
Pig Pen–the dirty candidate who is in fact innocent–is going out by request to Taichung City, Taiwan.
Another card going off by request: this view from Hilo, Hawaii’s Merrie Monarch Festival is destined for a Postcrosser in Yonago, Tottori, Japan.
Whoa… Lucy & her balloon are off to a rare county for Postcrossing: this is on its way to Melben, Austria.
Still more Peanuts: this one is going to Hong Kong.
This octopus is attacking the San Diego Central Library. One thing to know if you are a postcard lover: the Friends of the Library store here is a great place to go postcard shopping! I sent this one out to a post pal in Hawaii.
Another copy of the card is going out in a Postcrossing Forum library tag to a recipient in Ningbo, Zhejiang, China. Sadly, the design of the card’s back does not leave much room for anything larger than the smallest of domestic first-class stamps. No room for a larger stamp (like our round international stamps, among any number of others); no room for multiple stamps; no room for the postmark, which so often obscures a sizable chunk of real estate on the back of a postcard. It would be nice, wouldn’t it, if the people designing the address side of cards were also people who send & receive postcards, themselves.
I recently popped into the Charles M. Schulz Museum, on the way home from somewhere else, just long enough to do a little postcard shopping! Poor Charlie Brown is going to a Postcrosser in Gunma, Japan.
I also bought this new postcard, one copy of which is on its way to East Jakarta, Indonesia.
This image from The Princess & the Frog was requested by a frog-lover in Beckum, Germany.
Another Art of Disney card–this one of Lion King’s Pride Rock–is going to Taichung, Taiwan.
This beautiful sea otter is going to Foshan, Guangdong, China.
And finally, why are hard taco shells so popular? One bite, and the whole thing falls apart. Give me fresh corn tortillas! This box panel from “white people taco night” goes to Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.
Okay, are you ready for a huge party of stamps, stickers, & washi tape? Here you go! Any favorites this time?
