Comment: Thank you for all the great choices! And for the extra! The Shinjuku area in Tokyo has more buildings now. It is really neat to see this “before” scene - from before my first trip there! Also love the deer glow in the dark, fall leaves, lion and recipe! That sculpture is very unique!! If I can figure out where it is I’ll let you know!!! Thank you for sending it in a fun dog themed envelope!!! Hope you have a nice day : )
Comment: These are so nice!!! I love all the patterns/pictures on them! Thank you for the extras too!! Now I can’t wait to get to my letters so I can use these!! Yay!!! Not sure I can give up the map one - it’s really neat! Oh, thank you for putting the tape inside too!! : )
Comment: Wow.I LOVE everything you sent. I can tell you read my profile. Tysm for the jetoy cat PC. Will be a great addition to my collection and the puppy one was so cute. I love how you made me a bookmark too so sweet💖💖💖
Comment: Thank you for all the great things you sent!!! I love to read so the bookmarks are awesome, and of course postcards and envelopes are also great for me!! So happy you joined and thanks again!! xxxx
Comment: Very nice choice of postcards! i love the Giraffe and of course the extra card Monarch butterfly. Beautiful! Not at all bragging. But there had been so many Monarch butterflies here and as well as the Honey bees.So much so, that have become a nuisance here. They built so many nests around our house. I'm allergic to bees. So, I couldn't be outside like i wanted to. Have a good day!
Comment: Great selection of postcards, in a cute envie, with awesome postage stamps affixed! You must be like the Mary Poppins of swaps because this is practically perfect in every way. Thanks so very much for making this a positive swap experience!
Comment: OMG... I almost lost my mind when I opened your envelope!!! I luvvvvvvvvvd “everything”...lol...where did you get the cardstock ( green with the white flowers) who makes it? And the envelopes, where can I buy these. You made my day...🤗
Response: I get almost everything on-line, usually ebay but sometimes Amazon or etsy. I also shop at Hobby Lobby locally. I am sorry I cannot remember where I get any one specific thing. Glad you liked them.
Comment: Thanks for the colorful photo album! I think your photos were brighter than mine - I hope you're not disappointed with your album when it arrives! Weather has been very spring here - warm one day and cold the next. One day it'll just be hot, though - and stay that way until mid-September. So I'm not in a big hurry for that!
Comment: Thanks for this wonderful swap! I love all the PCs you sent! Thanks too for the extras! I have organized my postcards; states, birds, animals, etc, and one of the designations is "Artsy." Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Comment: Dear Marina. Thank you for the very nice selection of cards. They are all new to me and it looks like you read my profile. Thank you also for sending the 5th card right away. I appreciate it. Joy
Comment: Love the National Parks Lantern Press pcs! I grew up about 40 miles from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison!! There's a crooked, narrow, gravel road that goes all the way down to the river. I remember having to close my eyes part of the way!! Thank you so much for the cards and memories!
Comment: Hi Marina thank you for thepeacock PC so pretty. It's funny it came today: this morning I was telling my sister it sounded like a peacock was in my area. lol I dont mind the typewriting...so frustrating when I can't read the writing on a PC. I have a bit of a chicken scratch myself :) Happy Autumn swapping. peace love light
Comment: Fantastic vintage postcards!! Each one is excellent and unique! Thank you bunches!! Also....I love the typewriter print on the envie & notecard, now I’m wanting to go out and find a vintage typewriter!
Response: I bought an electric typewriter at a yard sale for $10. It works fine. The ink cartridges cost more than the machine itself but are easily found on eBay.
Comment: OMG! Thank you so much for all of the cool postcards from England and Scotland. I love them!! I haven't been to these areas yet, so I'm really excited about postcards from there. Great swap - thanks for putting a big smile on my face! :-)
Comment: Wow! Thanks for sending cards that not only fit the hunt items but my interests as well. My first Australian maxi card, and it is adorable; and I read all the Nancy Drew mysteries as a kid! I want to get to Holland MI sometime for their tulip festival. I truly love all the cards you sent, thank you for an extra, too.
Comment: Thanks for the postcards. Please be careful when assembling your envelope. All of the sticky got stuck to one of the postcards and in the process of trying pull the postcards out of the envelope, it was stuck to the glue and got ruined. **UPDATE** Holy cow, thanks for all the extra cards. I love them all and wish I could give you more hearts! You didn't need to do that but it is appreciated!!
Response: I am so sorry. I will send you some more cards. Mary
Comment: I think this is a first! I got your letter with all the postcards before I have even gotten my envelope addressed! You are amazing! Thank you so much - how clever to send my two Christmas cards I can use! I love the horse with the hat!!!! And I have never had a Houdini PC before! Thank you again!!!!
Comment: Thank you for the great cards. The one of the lady carrying a TV on her head made me laugh. We have an entire collection of photos of people carrying the oddest stuff on their heads from when we lived in Africa. Thanks so much! The crosswords came too! Thank you!!
Comment: Thank you so much for the great PCs you chose for this swap. I really like them all and wish I could pick one over the rest as my favorite but that isn't the case. . . I really do like them all equally. Thanks too for the great bookmark and the great Christmas-y frame. . . you went overboard!!!
Comment: Hello! Thank you for the wonderful swap package. The postcards you sent are really fun! The holographic stickers are pretty cool too. I really appreciate all the effort you put into this swap. Thanks again!
Comment: Mary, I don't know why you say you are a novice at this. These bookmarks are beautiful!! The fox one is so fun and the paper you used for the other two are just gorgeous! Thank you for making these so special!
Response: I am so happy you like them. My niece and I are learning together how to make bookmarks. It's a good bonding experience. Thank you for the heart. Mary.
Comment: Thanks so much for the beautiful PCs you chose for this swap. The Sedona PC is breathtaking and I love the cacti of Arizona -- I always enjoyed traveling to Arizona when I lived in California. the PC of Colorado is so beautiful and very typical of Colorado, another state I've been too many, many times. Thanks again for choosing such beautiful PCs that also brought back many memories for me of the times I've been to both states.
Comment: Hi Marija :) First may I say - I'm a shamrock FANTATIC, so I loved your envelope. The stickers you sent were perfect - fun, colorful and the monsters are a bit goofy like me. Thank you so much. Dina
Comment: Oh, Mary! An envie full of kitties! Thank you so much . . . and I adore the note with the kitty @ the top ;+) So thoughtful. I appreciate you looking at my profile and sending cards you knew I would love.
Response: I love the kitties too, unfortunately I have a jealous beagle who refuses to let me add a kitten to my household. Have a wonderful day. Mary Young
Comment: Thank you for the assortment! It's crazy how clustered together everything in Europe is. I'm always amazed when friends tell me about their European adventures and how they cross like three or four countries in an afternoon! I'm particularly enchanted with the image of the UN building, though.. the level of detail is uncanny -- I almost thought it was an old photograph!
Comment: Hi Mary! Thank you for sending your cards so promptly, and including some extras. :) I was quite amused to see a formation in Tulum, Mexico labeled "carwash"! The sleeve to hold them is a good idea; I'll implement it.
Comment: I wanted to sincerely thank you for sending this twice (you totally didn't have to!) and for sending me some amazing doggy postcards for my collection!
As a thank you for all your extra effort I have a surprise headed your way :) Thank you again!
Response: thank you for the little package of goodies, best wishes
Comment: Hi Mary! I enjoyed all of the cards that you sent me . You went above and beyond for this swap, including the way you packaged the postcards. I even liked how you added an extra one. Thank you so much!
Comment: WOW!! I LOVE the cards you sent. Esp the Sturgis cards I went there once, we rode out from Mass, 2 couples . We had a great time. thanks so much for all the extras
FYI you forgot your swap name
Comment: Wow! Your photos are fantastic -- and so many! If I needed something to brighten my day, your photo album would brighten an entire month. Thank you SO MUCH for your generosity and those pictures! They'll inspire me to try harder with my own. Sure hope we're partners again some day. (smile)
Comment: hey mary,
thanks for joining my swap as you were the only one who did :( haha!
thanks for the generous assortment of cards. You sent me some gems for sure. I hope you enjoy at least some of the cards I sent you, too!
. I might host another one soon so keep your eyes peeled if youre interested!
Comment: Greetings from another dog lover! Peaches is darling, and that postcard is a hoot - loved it! I'll have to send you a postcard of my Mia one day (she is Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and we sure do have TONS of pictures of her. Ciao!
Comment: Thankyou Mary for the the lovely spring flpwers photos, they are beautiful. I love to see the spring flowers in the garden, the tulips are nice and I love the daffodils. It is so nice to be your partner again, have a nice day Mary and enjoy the spring, love Jennifer
Comment: Many thanks for the beautiful photos & the background story in your letter -- looks like a beautiful place to visit and great to go "through your eyes!" Wonderful swap you hosted and pretty flower postage stamp you used, too!
Comment: Mary ~ thank you so much for the awesome photo and the history of it! I love seeing things I otherwise would never see. I love learning of other cultures and how they do things. Your photo really captured ~ THE ONE! Thank you so much for joining in and I am so glad I got you!! XO Kelly :)
Comment: WoW WoW WoW so you are the coordinator of this great swap!!! Thank you so much for this wonderful scavenger hunt with the great postcardsâ€¦. I love them allâ€¦but think the Australian wild flowers and the robin bird army favoriteâ€¦....Hugs and happy swapping!!!
Comment: you went above and beyond with this swap, and i'm truly grateful for it! here's a super huge and warm thanks for the GORGEOUS map postcards. i love them all and will forever cherish them! also, thank you so much for the several heart sticker sheets. wow, i'm feeling oh so lucky today! :) â™¥
Comment: Cool card, yes, you ask a good question! I recently changed my profile to say, I don't like pets, I actually do like animals, just to look at, not to touch. I often buy postcards for other people, so, I choose cards with animals on them, that's why I have surplus cards, and I want to get rid of them, that's the other reason. Thanks for the card!
Comment: Your lovely package came here today. Just so many and thank you so. Hugs for all the extras. You are so kind.
Love the animal ones. I love animals.
You take special care and hope we do this soon again. 100 hearts to you
Comment: What a great group of PCs for this scavenger hunt! I love them all but especially the PC of Houston and the Bull Elk one - that one is just so majestic! Thanks again for the great selection. . . and have a wonderful week ~~
Comment: Hello Mary,
Thank you for the three map postcards you sent me for this swap. I like map postcards. I am collecting all the U.S. state map postcards and I think Iowa is one I still needed and so thank you for that one. The other two are neat too. They will be fine additions to my Postcard Collection. Happy New Year!!!
Comment: Thank you for the nice assortement of cards, lovely. The onewith the littlegirl and the cat wasactually printedin the Netherlands. What an amazing notecard you put the card in, did you make it yourself?? It's beautiful! (The note inside was addressed to your other partner.. ;-) )
Comment: Thank you so much for the terrific selection of cards you sent me. I like them all. I saw that Salvador Dali painting not long ago at the Dali Museum here in Florida. I hope we swap again soon.
Comment: Thank you for your lovely variety of postcards, Marija. That Wedding Cake House in Maine is certainly an odd design - I have not seen it before. Thanks for choosing from my preferences. Best wishes. :)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful envelope of church postcards. They are all great. I wish that churches in Australia had postcards. I love the stamps also. I was in first grade when "man walked on the moon".
Comment: Wow! Thanks for the beautiful photos. You did a great job with the research and detailed description on the buildings. And I absolutely LOVE the moon and typograph machine pcs. They are really cool and different. Thanks tons :-)
Comment: Mary! Wheee! What a great find, no matter how you found all these things!!! My goodness, I have NEVER seen such great PC's. I don't think I'll be able to send them away!!!! I LOVE them so much, they are the type of PC's I wish I could find!!! The alter cloth is absolutely beautiful, that is a great find too! Thanks also for the seemingly vintage-y notepads! You rock!
Comment: Thank you Mary for your package it arrived this morning, we loved the randomness of the photos and postcards hehe, especially love the old photos, i wonder what the story is behind them! Thank you very much :)
Comment: Hello Mary,
Thank you for the very nice collection of stamps (used) you sent me from this scavenger hunt. Did you soak the stamps off the paper they were on? I am going to mount the stamps on the guide sheet and save. I hope we have more of these scavenger hunts. I like these hunts. Outstanding collection!!!!
Response: No, I bought an old American stamp album at a yard sale. The stamps were from the 1930s to the 1970s. There were on hinges (I think that is the right word) and were easy to remove from the album pages.
Comment: Hi! TY so much for sharing your lovley skie photos! Scotland looks awesome! What kind of camera do you have? I love seeing photos from others! TY for the pc too, love it and will put it to good use! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: I've fallen in love with Muffin just from the photos! She reminds me of the schnauzer my hubby had when we met--his name was Konrad, and he had to meet and work out some kind of truce with my cat, Thomas, who chased Konrad around my townhouse the first time we got them together. After we married, they became great buddies, often curled up sleeping together on our bed or on one of our recliner chairs. Konnie had about 17 years and Thomas was 19 when we lost him. They had good times together and long happy lives! I'm going to keep the Muffin pictures in my paper art room! Thanks so much for the pictures and your letter!
Comment: I love the "K" theme! Thanks so much! We didn't get the mail until late today, so we looked at them right at bedtime, it was an extra special bedtime for Henry:).
Thanks for the smiles :)
Comment: These are amazingly beautiful notecards. I am really happy to see an example of zazzle cards, very nice. Did you visit Vienna for vacation. I can only imagine all the beauty there. Thank you so much. Hugs, Mona
Response: My brother works for the UN in Vienna. That is a park in the city within walking distance from his apartment. We visited him several times when my husband was still living.
Comment: Oh my, what a marvelous selection of PCs!!! Thank you so much for the South America mapcard - my first and it goes right into my collection! The others were also so great. . . the Everglades have always fascinated me although I've never been there, and the West Point one was great - I've been to Annapolis and the AF Academy but think this is the first 'picture' I've ever seen of West Point : ) I love the American Rose Center - didn't know they had such a thing and roses were my mom's favorite flower so I always think of her when I see roses. . . and my SIL works for Coke so enjoyed getting that PC (will have to send it on to her with a short note). Again, thank you so much for the wonderful PCs!!
Comment: Thank you ever so much for all the sweet kitty postcards! I'm SO glad you took a look at my profile and sent along one of my favorite things! Of course I will never send them to anyone! (haha)
Comment: oh i just LOVE the photos you sent! Esp. the one your neighbor gave you! Please tell him thank you for me, how kind of him to share a special memory with a stranger! :) I will be saving it for a very special use in creating! Thanks again-happy swapping! :)
Comment: Hi there! I was going through my old swaps trying to archive them and I realized I never rated you for this swap. First off, I'm terribly sorry for the extreme delay. I must have gotten lazy even with my swaps due to my high school senioritis! Anyways, I wanted to make sure you got rated even if it's really late. Thanks again for being such a wonderful swap partner.
Comment: Mary - thank you SO much - these postcards are AMAZING!!! I am just thrilled and appreciate them so very much! I love each one - and a HUGE thanks for the poodle!! Also really love the Aston Martin, seahorse, fox & skiing girl! Thanks for looking at my profile! You made my day!!

Comment: Thank you. I was so excited when I saw your name, Marija. One of my favorite Eurovision Winners is named Marija Serifovic, it was not a name I had heard of before I heard her, now I seem to see it every where. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.
Comment: Thanks for the photos and nice note ~ peaches is so cute, and I'm really glad you have a pal like him to keep you company (I really know how nice it is just to have a little furry friend to listen and give you love when you live alone :) Thanks ^^
Comment: Mary, thanks so very much for the lovely cards I received from you yesterday! They are about too pretty and interesting to use, so I may just keep them in my collection.
Best wishes to you for many happy swaps.
Comment: wow what a great shot, and so sad to see these places, especially if they've had a part in our lives, gone to ruin. At LiveJournal I'm a member of a comunity called Urban Decay, and have seen many amusement parks and the like featured in photos there. America must be littered with places like this...
Comment: WOW-WAY cool car! Your son is LUCKY! My first (at age 16 without yet having my license!) was a '69 Dodge Charger! (guy magnet-lol!) and the best car I ever owned...sure wish i still had it! Thanks for sharing! Happy swapping & shooting!
Comment: Oh my goodness love this card! I loved the week I spent in New Orleans a few years ago -- I didn't know I could use up my camera's two memory cards in so little time! Beautiful beautiful, thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard, there are SO many dressed up dogs in New York City I think it is ridiculous. However, I think the big city is a wonderland for dogs. Can you imagine all the scents, good and bad, that tantalizes their nostrils?
thank you ever so much for that fantabulous
card ... interesting how the "ads" are personally
painted: it should be a lucrative line of work,
but i guess i know better than assume that!
really appreciate a peek at a lesser-publicized
production of the film industry!
Comment: I'm so sorry----I just found this swap envie in a pile of mail---I didn't realize it was there. This is a terrific envie--you filled it with loads of things I like--thanks bunches and bunches!!!!
Comment: I like the picture where you were the witch and Marie Antoinette. The wedding dress was also very classy! I can't believe you made it yourself!
P.S. I just hope my photos turn out as good as yours!
Comment: Thank you for reading my profile. Victoria just LOVED the Native American cards. They are a connection to her life BEFORE adoption and that means the world to me to see her excited over an "Indian" card. Rt. 66 cards take me back to my "single" before Victoria days of traveling anywhere I could on next to nothing and loving it. Thanks for a batch of really great cards. I think I will host these envie swaps more often !!!
Comment: Fabulous ad cards, thank you so much. I really love that all eight ad cards came from foreign countries. You really deserve two hearts for such a great assortment. And I appreciate that you sent extras.
Comment: Cindi and I were just in Chicago in September and actually walked by the Art Institute and the lion statues. In fact, I took a couple of pictures of them. Thanks for reminding me of a good time we had there.
Comment: I received this today but, unfortunately, the envelope was completely ripped open on 2 sides and partially on the third side. Inside was 2 Christmas cards and only 2 map postcards. :( A Massachusetts one (which I already had) and a New York one! One of the few states that I was missing!! Thanks for the NY one. UPDATE 11/7: Thank you so much for sending another map card to replace the one missing! That was totally unexpected. I love the WV one. :)
Response: I will resend you some more. The Christmas cards were to protect the postcards.
Comment: Thanks for the cute yorkie card - I love it! My little one won't let her hair grow out...she starts to get fussy and protests brushing once it starts to get long. They're just like little kids. :)
Comment: Hi Mary, I absolutely love the frog postcard, especially since it was specially made. If I may ask how did you do it? Was it a special computer program or did you order it? I would love to do the same.....Thank you so much..Roseann
Response: www.postful.com postcards cost 59 cents and that includes postage. You use your own photograph. I love them but it takes them awhile to mail. Like a week or so.
Comment: What an amazing array of cemetery markers, you are so incredibly generous and I am thrilled I was your partner. The gypsy, or Roma marker is fantastic and I it is my favorite. I can't thank you enough!
Comment: Thank you so much for the cards, I'm happy about them!! Also the extra card was lovely suprise :) The best card was the smallest with some mastiff(?) and puppy! Love to add it my collection <3
Comment: Bo is beautiful! I love beagles... Thank you for sharing her with me. I'm glad Bo was there for you when you needed her most. I too find my little puppy there for me when I need him. The love from a pet is a beautiful thing.. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss...
Comment: I do love the lighthouses! Did you notice the one at the end of the pier? Love it, thanks so much, Karyn
Ok, now I got a batch from you, what mistake? I'm not complaining as I love all of them!!! I needed these maps too, thanks so much!! Karyn
