A New Surge


I have suddenly gotten a new urge to check the postcrossing forum (after many years) and have immediately joined a Round Robin group, tagged a few times, and sent a few official postcards :) Not the best timing, as I am between jobs (again!) and the prices of everything and anything have gone up, BUT...let's see what happens :)

The postcard is a new one of my home town - I love the colour of the sea. However overall the choice of postcards has simply deteriorated over the years. I look at some that I have sent a decade ago and I feel sad that most of those postcards are not available anymore...I should look into printing some of my own designs; any tips on good printing sites are most welcome..!

Tea Postcard


Every now and then I like to send myself/my family a bit of a different postcard, be it in shape, size, material or content. As I was visiting a museum in Hamburg last month I stumbled upon this tea postcard - there is actual tea inside. It says: There is much Love in here! And the typical blue-on-white design of the German (and Dutch) north, especially for tea sets. There is always extra contentment when such postcards arrive as they also cost extra to send.
