I received quite a mix of cards today: two map cards,  another elephant card 😉 and a UNESCO WHS card; three from Germany and one from the US .


This fabulous map of Southern California is a new card for my collection.

Thanks so much for the card emotis!


Another new addition to my map card collection arrived from Germany. It’s this great map of Iceland. Here are some facts about Iceland from the back of the card:  “Iceland – 103.000 km², 39.768 square miles. Coast line 4.970 km, 3.750 miles. Population ca. 283.000”

Vielen Dank für die Karte midnatsol!


My elephant  collection just keeps growing and growing. 😉 Here’s another gorgeous card to add to it.

Vielen Dank für die Karte Mausbaer47!


And last but not least, I received this card of the mines of Rammelsberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992.

Vielen Dank für die Karte Helga_Ni!



Today’s post brought four cards from four countries, namely Austria , Germany , USA  and Russia .

My elephant card collection keeps growing. I received this lovely card from Austria today. I already have the card actually but unwritten to send out so I’m happy that it was sent to me. The card came with a fabulous Madagascar stamp.

Vielen Dank für die Karte erlkoenigstochter!

This Berlin bear card also arrived today. The bear has been Berlin’s heraldic animal since 1280.

Also among today’s post was this lovely card from Mississipi depicting live oak trees. The back of the card reads “Two Golden Eagles – Live oak trees in the median of U.S. Highway 90 (Beach Blvd.) in Biloxi, MS that died as a result of Hurricane Katrina received new life from award winning sculptor Martin Miller. Miller, a Ft. Walton Beach artist, carved the two golden eagles located near the entrance of The University of Southern Mississippi in Long Beach.” Those trees remind me a little bit of the Owl tree in Cassiobury Park in the UK.

Thanks so much for the card TeamBearCat!

The last of today’s cards comes from Russia. It’s certainly not your typical viewcard as it depicts building sites. There’s some text on the back about a construction company so I’d say that explains the pictures. 😉

Spasibo galina-shvarova!

Today was another good post day; I received nine cards altogether. Among them were three animal cards, one each from Germany , Switzerland and the Netherlands .


Seeing the elephant card from Germany was somewhat of a déjà vu feeling as I received the exact same card yesterday. Oh well, I do like elephants so I don’t really mind having it twice. I guess one of the cards will just go into my son’s postcard box. He, too, likes elephants. 🙂

Vielen Dank für die Karte Kugusch!


A rather different elephant card arrived from the Netherlands. Interesting perspective. 😉

Dank u zeer voor de briefkaart MissMaple!


These bears arrived from Switzerland. Quite fitting seeing as the bear is the heraldic animal of Bern, Switzerland’s capital city.

Vielen Dank für die Karte egni!

I received three postcards today, two from Germany and one from the US . Funnily enough all three cards are animal cards.


As you probably know by now, my favourite animals are elephants. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that I absolutely love this “little rebel” card.

Vielen Dank für die Karte mesalina!


A sweet baby brown bear with his mummy adorn this card. So nice to look at but I wouldn’t want to bump into them…

Vielen Dank für die Karte moonwalker!


This pretty multiview of Great Smoky Mountains National Park (what a fabulous name!) depicts (from left to right) Grotto Falls, sunset near Charlies Bunion and an American Black Bear.

Thanks so much for the card CaptainSoul!

Did I mention I would get loads of cards from Germany this month? Well, two more arrived in today’s post.

The first card shows two African elephants. It’s such a beautiful picture.

The second card, a vintage map of Asia, is every bit as fabulous as the first. Today was certainly a happy mail day. 🙂
