Comment: Hi Karen thank you so much for the 20th century Santaman. PC. The rich embroidered costume is lovely.Usually we dont get snow, sometimes it comes in January/February. Too much ocean water around us :) Doesn't stay long. Happy November swapping peace love light
Comment: Thanks Karen for the cute samples. I am looking forward to trying the tea. You tend to get such interesting flavours in the states, here it’s tea or tea (well there’s a bit more choice than that, but not really seasonal flavours) thanks 😊
Comment: Thanks for the lovely teas. I’m looking forward to trying them. I hope that you enjoyed your dinner out. It’s said to loose things like that, but you’ll always have the memories, and perhaps create new traditions. 😊
Comment: CONGRATULATIONS on your AWARD for your work with the Royal Oak Nature Society!!!! WoW...... so nice to be recognized..... I have a friend in Ann Arbor who is a nut over mushrooms and bonsai...
Made me smile and be happy for you.... and I like the notecard also....thanks for the great swap! LOVE the postcards.....
Comment: Thank you so much, you made my day. I love the elephant card and all the washi's but the think that had me smiling from ear to ear is the washi of the junkfood with the pigeons! I was born and raised in Amsterdam and the citycentre (dam square) is famous for all its pigeons. And with Mc Donald's just around the corner, we'll, it looks very realistic that washi! Lol!
Comment: Power to the kitties!!! haha thats what that washi made me think of. Thank you for the Hard Rock Cafe postcard! I have been to eat at a few of their locations. I like the food and the scenery of the place. If you haven't been you should go!
Comment: Wow! I'll go on vacation & have a picnic with you anytime! Thanks for another batch of thoughtfully chosen cards. Not only do you read my profile, but you read between the lines, e.g. choosing an illustration by Ernst Haeckel, whom I adore. Great vintage camel photo, intriguing surreal art, a monkey who looks like he's performing surgery - what fun cards! BTW, I have that iNaturalist app on my phone too. Thanks so much, Karen.
Comment: These are SOOOO GREAT, thanks so much! The Carnival one is my ultimate favorite as that's one of my favorite places on earth to visit! I took my kids there when they were little and my son wouldn't go into the gnome garden because he said an evil witch obviously lived there, haha. I will cherish this card forever. Thank you for the vintage and the cool modern ones! :):):)
Response: That is so awesome! I love it when postcards get to the right home. 💜 I’ve never been there but though it looked cool!
Comment: Thanks for the nice selection of cards, Karen, especially the charming vintage Tunisian camels & Chihuly's purple reeds. I love his work, especially when it's placed in natural settings like that.
Response: I went to a postcard show and those were the two I bought with you in mind. I’m so glad you liked them. :-)
Comment: I loved your ugly card. It just goes to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have been recently studying surrealism in art and it was a great example. I had fun researching the creator of the pc. Very interesting. Thank you... =)
Response: That’s awesome! I may have one other one by the same artist and if I do I’ll send it to you!
Comment: My mouth waters for all those home grown veggies from the farmer's market. Pretty card! Thanks for oriental vintage pc and old stamps. Heavy rain here yesterday and today! 95 degrees on weekend.
Comment: I've never heard of fulgurite before! Thanks for sharing & teaching me something new. One thing to note: my address had a typo so I'm not sure how it made its way to me but the postman wrote to notify sender of correct address. :P
Response: Ugh! I was extra careful spelling your name right, since you mentioned it on your profile and then I mess up your address. sigh! I'm glad it found it's way to you!!
Comment: Thanks Karen for the washi which I did not have in my collection. Love the cat cats, too cute. Lots of fun to be had with the extra goodies you sent, so kind of you. Have a wonderful weekend, AnnaL.
Comment: Thank you so much for your letter! I loved reading your book recommendations! I'm a Jane Austen fan also and will check out many on your list! Thanks for the lovely bird washi samples and bookmark as well! This was a special swap!
Comment: Thank you so much! The envie embellishment was amazing! I grew up in Michigan so I love the postcard and my freelance business is called Dream Big Communications so the card was perfect, too! You're a dream swapper!
Response: I’m so happy you liked everything! Where in Michigan?
Comment: What a sweet, unexpected surprise! I love that you included cloth in my swap...what a fun idea! In addition, the washi was awesome, too! Thank you and have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend. ❤️
