RU-1208616 (Russia) A fall day in Samara, Russia along the Volga River and in Strukovsky Garden on a fall day...
Direct Swap from Seattle, Washington -- I really need to send this beautiful lady some cards in return! She's at the top of my list!!
BE-167976 (Belgium) The sender lives in Belgium but sent from Morocco so I received from both worlds! Bonus!! The back says "marchand ambulant d'oranges". Traveling orange merchant. I love it when the translations come easy. :o)
Hi there - I have been off of Postcrossing and postcard swapping all summer and I'm slowly getting back into it again. I think I just needed some time off. I do still work 45 hours a week and have 2 small children at home. My free time was spent with my girlies and hubby for the past few months. Now the girls are in school full-time, Kindergarten and 1st grade, and my big girl still at home is back at college, a junior this year. Time for Mom to take up her long-lost hobby again. :o) I'm going to be sending cards out by the bunches this coming week. I have the next week off of work! I did send out about 20 a few weeks ago so I'm starting to get some in return now. Here they are...

It's the Pixar movie, Brave! Great movie - our girls loved it and so did I! Can't wait for it to come out in DVD so we can see it again... It has a Mama Bear and some adorable bear cubs in it!
Private swap from Seattle, Washington... It has a top layer that you spin around to make an optical illusion... very cool... :o) I love that 32 cent Marilyn Monroe stamp - I wish I had some of those!

This is why I like ad cards! (Most all Postcrossers hate them, despise them, complain about them. Why? Because they were free to the sender? I don't know.) I find them so interesting and fun! You get to see ads from other cultures and languages AND they are usually double-sided. This chick sent me 2 in an envelope... including a bear! That drink looks very yummy. I could go for that right now. It's yucky and rainy here today in northern Ohio.
