I received my first postcard in an envelope... and I think I understand now why people like their cards written on and stamped and mailed without an envelope... it's much more special! Anyways, this card is from Lithuania. :)

I got a New Years card from China. The design and shape of the card was very different from the rest of the postcards I'm used to seeing.

Albert Einstein

I received a postcard from the USA of Albert Einstein. I really like it! It's one of my faves. The sender included a quote on the back:

Sunrise at Jade Mount

TW- 142122

The fifth card I received from Taiwan is my favorite so far. Not because of the picture but because of the back, which you can't see in this picture. The sender made it so colorful with lots of stamps. She wrote a lot and taught me my name in Chinese and a few other phrases.

Postcards of a Collection

Hello readers!

My name is Caitlin. I am a 17 year old American girl currently living in Sweden.
I have started this blog because I collect postcards and snail mail letters and would love to share my hobby to the world.

I have always had an interest in the world. I've had penpals since I was about 14 years old and recently I have discovered the website Postcrossing and I am now addicted. I've been a member on Postcrossing for a little over a month. I eventually hope to have enough postcards to make a wall of postcards.

Currently I have 13 postcards that I've received from using Postcrossing. I will make individual posts for each of them until I am caught up to my most recent card.

If you are interested in a direct swap of postcards let me know. :)

My Cards For Trade - I have not finished uploading every card I have for trades. I have over 200 cards. So I might have something you want that is not on there so please just ask me.
