391st Tag

A cool handmade card from one of the FB games, it seems like it's from an old road map too. If it's not clear, it shows an area of New Brunswick in Atlantic Canada.

How spooky! The card unfortunately doesn't give much context behind these skulls but the one on the bottom right has me intrigued. The back of the card does indicate it is from a museum in Strasbourg.

Prague - The Vltava River - Charles Bridge - The Lesser Town - The Prague Castle

The beautiful views of Prague, always worth the visit! Funny I wonder if the sender forgot to put postage on the back since it said it was owing but got here anyways.

Another cool card from my friend in Japan, he said he picked this up at the Comic Market in Tokyo a few years back. How cool!

What a cute cancel and the stamp is fantastic too!


Greetings from Stuttgart
Street festival on the Cannstatter Wasen

Most people know about Octoberfest, but what about the Cannstatter Volksfest? This is the 2nd largest festival in Germany and takes place slightly before Octoberfest. Certainly worth checking out if you're in and around Stuttgart around that time!

Charles Burns
Lightning Bolt

From one of the FB games, the thing I like about comic book art is that it's so bold and has such defined shadows.

Quite an interesting colouring card, it sure would take awhile to get into the fine details of this pretty bird, wouldn't it?

A very lovely card, I guess the way they did this was pressing the leaves as time passed? Still a cool contrast to see the leaves slowly changing colour.

A lovely sunset or perhaps sunrise from Thailand, this bridge reminds me of a local bridge we have.

Design models of Simon Petrikov's stages of deterioration into the Ice King as a result of the crown's powers.

A cool RAS arrived for me, though I haven't really watched Adventure Time, I've heard good things about it. Out of curiousity I did look up this character in particular, the back story is far more in depth than I was expecting for a children's show. Might have to give it a shot again in the future :)

This stamp was from the booklets and unfortunately doesn't have the nice gold sheen that the non-self adhesive stamps have.

387th, 388th, and 389th Tag

Both cards are from the same sender but for different FB games. The colouring on this card was well done!

Hutcheston's Mortal Senses

I tagged for a weird card and I sure got it lol


Once again from the same sender, all in one neat entry. What a beautiful moonlit night that must have been when this was shot

Some more New Year related mail, this time from my friend in China. This is one of the cards designed for the New Year but apparently there are more to come. I do love the detail put into the feathers of the hen (or rooster I suppose?)

Received: 06.02.2017

The Year of the Rooster stamp is just lovely!

199th DS

A cute card of my friend's art from Japan, love the chicken!

198th DS / Canning, NS

I swapped for a postmark and got this interesting card. While the Town Crier may be more for the tourists but it must have been important back in the day. The tree stump is what makes this card honestly XD

Received: 06.02.2017

Showcasing the new Year of the Rooster stamp!

The second postmark on the side of the card, nice and clear!


An interesting card, for some reason it gives me this 90s vibe.

Received: 02.02.2017

A lot of extra Dutch stamps from the sender, very nice!

Talk about wild! Leave it to Europe to have cards like this one lol

Received: 02.02.2017

Some extra stamps from the sender

And what a beautifully decorated envelope!


Another really cool art card! Loving the postcrossing theme, you got me on the dream catcher; perhaps this is a mail catcher?! 

Received: 02.02.2017


What an interesting card, I do love the composition but I'm not sure if it's a reference to something or who might be picture here. Cool nonetheless!
