Comment: Oh I loved the Nancy Drew books when I was younger. And I loved the TV show too. I had all of the vintage yellow ones :( They were lost a couple of years ago in an unfortunate storage issue. I had hoped to give them to my daughter but she's not really into reading
Comment: OMG, You're so right, the pig with helmet is uglier than ugly! Yup, It is from Star Wars movies. Which I love! But I love the older ones. Not so much the newer ones. Thank you for this PC. And, heck no, there isn't anything at all to redeem about on this PC, lol !
Comment: Very fun and unique card, thanks! Yes, I love that wire wrapped jewelry. I see it sometimes and wonder about jewelry making. But I've sworn off new crafts for now - too much stuff already! Enjoy!
Comment: Hi Donna! Thank you much for the PC and for your unknown words. Like you, I am such a word person. I love finding out new or unknown words. I once read the dictionary from front to back. No kidding, lol !
Comment: Wow, so sorry it took your swap so long to get here!! I love your list, I actually have the adoration of Jenna Fox, just havent read it. Now I might have to. Oh yea!! Outsiders is my favorite book too!!!I might have SHadowland around here..(I have tons of books everywhere) SOunds familar...I will def look into the others! Thank you so much for your list!
Comment: Thank you for the sweet meerkat PC. I enjoyed watching them last year when I visited Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, CO last year. I want to visit again after everythng settles down and it is safe to travel again.
Comment: Thank you for the excerpt. It looks like just the thing I'd pick up! If you enjoy psychological thrillers, "Wherever She Goes" by Kelley Armstrong is a great read. There is a missing child in it, too, but the mystery surrounding it makes a compelling read. It's very well written. It kept me reading long after I should have been asleep. Thank your daughter for the bookmark! It's perfect for me! ❤
Comment: Thank you for the cute postcard. Love your answers I agree 100%, earwigs are gross. They would freak me out when we lived in Wisconsin. Eiffel Tower, nice choice....enjoy...don't forget to wear your emerald earrings.
Comment: Your card arrived today! I loved that it was all cats, thankyou, that really made me smile! I hope things are continuing to go well for both yourself and your mother - having oldies to care for can be worrying. Take care and all the best, Tracy.
Comment: Such a lovely PC you sent! I understand how it's hard to leave the past alone when we have questions. Ask yourself how your life would be impacted if you knew the answers. And then get used to the sound of your feet walking away from things that were never meant for you anyway. You're special and amazing!
Comment: Thank you soo much ! Actually my Aunt and Uncle went to Petra and Jordan in December. It is a rare country. They Only found postcards at this little shop In Petra. I wonder if yours is the From the same One
Comment: Thank you for the postcard! I look forward to the library too when quarantine is over. British Columbia is looking to gradually let up the isolation measures but I don't feel I will really let loose and do everything for a little while. Just to be on the cautious side and because our second wave hasn't happened yet. But I admit I miss the shelves and shelves of books at my local library. <333
Comment: Canyou imagime?, the gentleman on that postcard you sent me has probally been doing this tradevsince he was young. Depending on the village and the family, most likely born into the trade.
sorry i am late on rateing:-/
(up until recently, I have been out of town caring for my mom post stroke).
Comment: I can see why you did not like this card. The flowers are arranged in a way that they actually look like sea creatures, or maybe snakes?? Either way you are right, the effect is unsettling. Well done for this Ugly PC swap.
Comment: Thank you for the postcard... very pretty tiger lily! Great answer! You are right, it is nice to be able to be in the moment without the distraction of a buzzing or beeping device. It's funny, I would have no trouble giving up my cell phone ;*) LOL
Comment: Thanks for the lol PC! :) I almost put eels on my list, too. I had to dissect a lamprey eel in a college bio lab. Yeah, they're gross. Thanks for the laughs at a time when we all need them!! Take care!
Comment: Thank you for the September snow PC. I would appreciate the outdoors, if we could ever get this Viral crap out of the way. I miss being able enjoy the outside world. A lot of people things for granted, until you don't have it anymore. I bet they appreciate it now. Take care & be safe.
Comment: Hello Donna and Happy Easter! That's awesome you are providing meals to seniors. I hope your mom is doing okay during all of this and that you found TP! I eat popcorn for dinner and I am not afraid to admit it! Tonight we had pancakes, ha! Take care and stay strong! <3
Comment: Thank you Donna, for the cute bird houses PC and your lovely note.Like you, I am worried for my mom. She lives 15 miles away & we aren't allowed to travel beyond our town. As we are on lockdown here in PA. and it stinks! But I make sure I call her every day. I wish she had video, so I could talk to her & see her face. But I can't afford to get her video camera, frown. Well, You take care & I will keep you all in my prayers.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely postcard! I appreciate that you have specially chosen a postcard with a sunset!
Nice that you are also a GSD fan! My dog is almost 10 years old. Time goes by so fast. I hope he stays with us for a while, because he's a sweetheart. I hope you can get a GSD again in the future. Happy swapping!
PS. 1000 times sorry for the late rating.
Comment: Thank you so much for the dbl books!! I knew it was books as soon as I pulled it out my PO BOx!! I was so excited all the way home. Can you believe I have never read The Notebook?! ANd I have heard very very good reviews on Lilac Girls. Thank you so much for the books, I LOVE them!!
Response: This was a fun swap! I am so happy that you are pleased with the books I chose for you! I really try to send things I think my partner will enjoy. I hope you can take some time to sit and relax and read!
Comment: Loving the Toucan! Thank you! As for how I am, Am ok for now. I hope you're in good health & spirits. I am like you, more than ready for Spring too! I too love Sunflowers! How weird is that, I have Wild Snowdrops in our yard too & I can hardly wait to see them!
Comment: Thank you for the adorable cat card with the handsome tabby. OMG a siamese called Sassylin!!!! I love that! I help my 95 year old neighbour with her siamese cat called Pluis ("Fluff"). He is gi-gan-tic -- must weigh more than 10 kg = about 22lb!! [Sorry for all these exclamation marks LOL]
Response: I am so happy you like the postcard! One can never have too many cats or cat postcards LOL! Yes, Sassy Lin is a beautiful girl. She is so slender and sleek - how would she and Pluis look next to each other LOL!
Comment: Thanks for the great lighthouse postcard. I really love it. And your winter survival tip is excellent - I didn't even think about looking toward the spring to get going. I hope today is a great day for you!
Comment: Hi Donna -- thanks for the great card of Moscow. I have acquired a lot of international cards of places I have (sadly) never been, and I love sending them out on anything-goes swaps :)
Comment: Hi Donna!
I have also read the brief wondrous life of oscar wao and wasn't very impressed either. I had heard so many rave reviews, but when I sat down to read it it just didn't do anything for me. I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks so. LOL Happy New Year! -Virginia
Comment: thank you for the nice postcard with appletree. I see that the postcard come from the Singermuseum in Laren, in my country.
I visit this museum regularly. Funny to reeie on of it's postcards from the USA.
Comment: I looked into the postcard you sent me. It is an image of part of an ancient Mayan building thought to be a school. It is in Uxmal, Mexico in one of the archeological zones of the Mayan culture. It looks like it would be interesting to visit.
Comment: Cool. I like the 4th of July fireworks photo. I like how the centre of the fireworks is at the top right and cascades down to fill the rest of the area. Nice work. Thank you for sharing it with me. P.S. The tulip notecard is a pretty addition.
Comment: The photo was definitely dramatic! I really enjoyed it. This year I enjoyed the fireworks over Boldt Castle in Alexandria Bay, and my mother took some pictures. I've been waiting for her to show me if any came out nicely. This was right up my alley!
Comment: (sorry for the late rating!)
Your bucket list is so lovely! A lot of travel on there, I might have to add a few to mine own.
I do have a tattoo, It was on my bucket list as well and let me tell you once you get one you're not gonna want to stop. I now have seven!
Oh wow to complete a cook book would be crazy but amazing! I might have to add that one, but for baking, I can't cook to save my life!
Thank you for sharing!
All the best
Comment: Thank you for the adorable postcard. I hope you got to take in Bella! My rose blush died and two years later, another one popped back up in its place! The first one was a dark pink and this one is light pink!
Comment: I LOVE this card! Our Memorial Day was not super summery, but it jumped in with a vengeance the day or two days after! AC season baby! I'm not one who loves the sweating. Have a super fun summer.
Comment: Donna thanks so much for the lighthouse pc. I love that it's an old one. Thank you. I am an extrovert. I have never met a stranger and love to be around people. I have an infectious personality and tell people you'll either love me or hate me. Some can tolerate and some can't stand me. Lol. I love love people!!!! And I get introverts I try letting people have space after I read em. --min
Comment: Lovely cacti card! And I want to go see this monument, looks amazing. Some people grow prickly pear cactus here, which amazes me as it gets a bit cold in winter. Hope you get some more spring soon! :):):)
Comment: Hi Donna ~ Thanks for the awesome pc, love it! The Road Jam packaging is cute. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I enjoy making recycled cards and using napkins on them is really fun. Wishing you a very merry Christmas and the best of 2019! Take care, Judy
Comment: thank you for the beautiful peaches postcard and I enjoyed your answers; your Positano, Italy answer immediately made me think of one of my favorite movies “Under the Tuscan sun.” Diane Lane stars in it and at one point falls in love in Positano. If you haven’t seen it I think you’d love watching the movie. It’s based on the real life memoirs of Frances Mayes who bought a dilapidated villa in Tuscany on a whim and restored it and her life at the time after a bad divorcé...anyhoo lol sorry for the ramble. Great swap! Thank you!!!
Response: So glad you liked the pc! Visiting the Amalfi Coast is my dream trip! I'll have to check out the movie you mentioned, sounds like a good one for a girls' nite! (Wine included!)
Comment: Cute, cute, cute black cat! I love black cats too but have never had one that was completely black. So far tuxedos are as close as I've gotten. My next one may just have to be completely black! Love the jokes, the "boos" one made me laugh the loudest! Thank you!
Comment: Loved the quote! We wil always miss something someone we were very close who ends up leaving the planet before we do! Thank you for sharing and I could be your swap partner on this swap! Take care!
Comment: Love the card! You know I wonder if I do have a cookbook leaflet from Creamola - I looked on line and one of the covers looks familiar. My grandparents called margarine Oleo too :) Never heard that word til we had to do a store run for gramma...we had no idea what oleo was haha..had to ask someone at the store...haha..Thank you for the great card :)
Comment: Love the card and Alastor is a beautiful baby! My vet has a whole passel of black kittens right now and I'd get one but my sick baby would be too stressed so I have to put adopting off until later! But I do get to go over there and pet them lots & lots! Thank you and kisses to Alastor from Shakespeare, who is only partially black!
Comment: You are too funny! Appreciate the thought! The PC you sent may actually be a good sub for a kitty card because there is a book series where cats develop a "mental telepathy bond" with their human and they get matching pierced earrings to show they are bonded! So there you have it! Thank you!
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. I love country music. My favorite country artist today is Chris Stapleton. I got to see him live about a year ago and I had front row. I love old timey sounding country music the best because that is what I remember listening to all of the time with my father growing up.
Comment: Hi Donna thank you for the Cormorant bird PC,. Where did the time go? I had myself a beach day on Tuesday and will try to get another before(sigh) Fall. BC had the sun but there were many smoky days due to the forest fires this year. So far less beach time :( peace love light
Comment: Hi Donna thank you for the beautiful PC "Branta and the Golden Stone", I really like it. I'm like you, I like to be near the water and go to the beach every chance I can...lots of forest fires in BC now, over 600...most caused from lightening ...we've had a few days of smoky skies and orange red sun but today there was some blue sky :) peace love light
Comment: love the pc! i have never thought of cutting the cardboard like that. i love moonpies and dont think we have tried banana. love the salted caramel we occasionally find! we also love the decos u added. thank you donna!
Comment: Thank you for the interesting card. I actually heard that phrase :Down East" on Murder She Wrote not too long ago. Hope your heat wave is over. Was cooler here today but we got just enough rain to make it very muggy. Not as much as we need as I have cracks in the flower bed that it hasn't helped.
Comment: Ha Ha! You don't know what you're missing! This is my life every day! We have areas in Dallas that have "rush hour" traffic from 5am-10pm with no respite at all, those highways I avoid at all costs! Thank you!
Comment: Hi Donna! Thanks for the great chunk - yes, the heat has been terrible this summer already - yikes! We were in Michigan over the weekend and the temps were in the 80's, love it! Yes, the beach on a hot day sounds amazing! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hello Zelda Mae and Mrs Belladonna, my fluffball and me enjoyed your letter very much. Zelda Mae sounds just like mine with not liking being picked up, awww <3 Thanks so much for a letter that is unforgettable (I mean, who gets a letter for their cat? Such a cool idea!).
Comment: Thank you so much for this swap!!! I had a lilac Siamese growing up, and I loved him so - those eyes! And I agree 110% that dietary restrictions, no matter what they may be, are difficult!! I try to give one thing up every month... pizza month is probably the hardest!!
Comment: A heart to you, for the weirdest postcard :) Indeed, very odd. I like the girls claws, its like me when I get my nails done at the salon! Crabs molt to grow, so the inside of the crab is older than the outside. Pretty cool. I have 2x marine crabs as pets and they molt all the time. Happy Swappin'
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful avocado postcard! I love avocados! A scarmage is what I had when I took my cat out of his crate at the vet’s office today. But I won the slight contest:) Ha! Happy Swapping
Comment: Thank you so much! I love the PC and the information you sent on the barn quilt trail. When my father was growing up my family owned a dairy in Vicksburg, Mississippi. I'm not sure how or why they quit that business. They were photographers all my life.
Comment: Thank you for the Arlo Postcard. He is one of my favorite performers. I have never seen him live. That would be amazing. Also I looked up the song and listened to it. It was beautiful and made me cry.
Comment: Great Chunk!! I am a Gabrielle but a Gabi for short ;) Gabi is the European spelling - my family are Scottish and Dutch ;)!
we had a big wind storm last night--all's well here but our neighbor lost 2 big pine trees!
HUGs and happy weekend!!
Comment: I tend to use too many hearts in my ratings I think. Is that possible? When I get something super fun like your washi-tape "envelope" postcard, I feel like I should give 2 or 3 hearts, but I only have one. I loved your card, including the pretty blue and green Sour Monkey box. I'm off now to go google Sour Monkey "Sour, Brettanomyces Tripel" cuz whaaaat does that mean?
Response: I am so glad you liked what I sent - this is such a fun swap and it gives me an opportunity to get a little creative. Thanks for hosting it and for the awesome rating too! Did you find out what Sour Monkey is? :)
Comment: I am soooooo with you about being done with winter, spring can arrive any time now. It seems like we are just getting all our snow now as we got dumped the beginning of February and it’s not going away and neither is the cold. Ugh, I’m ready to see some leaf buds on trees and any other color then white!!!!!
Comment: loooove your pretty birdie card and the text on it.
we are un summer now... hot summer. good news i'm on my prenatal rest from work.
hope you have lots of pretty birds visiting you after the winter,
Comment: Howdy! Thanks for the big chunk! We have been cold here, too, in MN. I left for AZ on a -11F morning. Usually that's not cold enough to phase our cars, but I still cross my fingers until I know for sure! I will have to google your ice dam - didn't hear about that one!
Comment: Thanks for the PC! I have actually just been thinking about making my own fairy garden this spring, so your card was perfect!
Response: I'm happy you liked the postcard! Sometimes you just never know with the free/ad cards. I've seen so many cute ideas for fairy gardens - on top of old stumps, in wheelbarrows, in shadow boxes suspended from trees... the ideas are endless! Would love to know how you make out it you do one! :)
Comment: Such a unique postcard. I'm intrigued by the book you're reading though probably not kindly to read it. I might live under a rock cuz I haven't heard of the famous fairy photos... Lol. I'm going to look it up now.
Comment: Very cute. I love that you adopted your cats. I have three and they were all found on the street as kittens about 3-4 weeks of age at different times. They are now 2-3 years of age depending on the cat and full of life energy and so much love. I never had a cat and expected them to be "on their own" mine are so needy I LOVE it! :)
Comment: That is funny you and I are opposite. I am chronically early. I am NEVER late I will be an hour early before I am a second late to anything haha! I think its anxiety, I have had issues with being late since I was a child odd how that can develop. Both my parents were always chronically late though lol!
Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Brooklyn Brisge postcard! Hope the cold weather has let up a bit for you, but if not, hunker down with movies, books, and cookies, and ride it out from under lots of comfy blankets! Happy New Year!
Comment: Thank you for the cute card. I receive these cards too and think they're so cute. So glad to see this swap because the charity cards are often so beautiful. Would be a shame not to use them. Thanks again.
Comment: Thanks for the cardboard. I like the border you put on the back; I might try something like that next time. We got a SodaStream to make sparkling water several years ago; it saves us quite a bit of money.
Comment: Thank you Donna for such a lovely surprise as I went for a walk on Friday evening and part of that walk was to my mailbox and points around town. It was a lovely breath of fresh air to receive your lovely card and letter. I throughly enjoyed reading about your life over a weekend and your sharing with me made me feel as a real human feels, connected! It was a gift you shared with me by being yourself. I truly appreciate it! You will hear from me! Thanks for the recipe that you shared with me. Iâ€™ll let you know how it all turns out. Iâ€™m sure it will be yummy!
Comment: Thank you for the great dog card. Annabelle got her first gift today in a way. Dillons which is the store I go to has Friday freebys with a free coupon every friday. Well today was Temptations cat treats. So I got Annabelle a bag of her favorite.
Comment: You and I have some of the same things in our purse, which makes sense to me. What was really odd was that the other partner I had for this didn't have any common items listed within her purse. Fancy that :)
Comment: Hi BellaD!! Thank you So funny both my Kids live in Brooklyn now I am from NJ they were all born in FL Now I'm in FL and they are up north. LOVE the cute I <3 NYI feel so connected to the people that send me these things that are so significant in my life I hope we cross paths again. I agree fall up north is unbeatable (and winter is Florida follows suit!) :-) Thanks again!
Comment: I am very excited to try these - the cherries sound delicious, and I think our Thanksgivings may have been missing cornbread! I am also a New Englander and my must-have is the whole-berry cranberry sauce.
Comment: Donna, Alastor and Zelda - Thank you so much for your letter and snacks! Mom gives me snacks every morning before she leaves for work, in a toy where I have to get them out in order to eat them because if she did not do that, I would swallow them whole! Meow, Mr. Carter
Response: We are very happy you enjoyed the letter and the treats! The kitties think it's fun when they get mail too :)
Comment: Hi Donna,
Looks like you live in a very lovely place ïŠ
â€¦ Iâ€™d love to be able to visit more of the East Coast
someday, but honestly just having a library in town is pretty much all I need, hehe.
Enjoy all CTâ€™s best this season for me ~
Comment: Got the wonderful card in today's mail - I remember reading about Olive Oatman before ...i thought it was her brother who rescued her from the tribe she was with - We may have been through there, might of been where I read about her. Thank you for the wonderful card :)
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful postcard. Love the views. You can have Jon Snow... Grey Worm is my husband!! >.< Cooking stresses me out too! I just signed up for Blue Apron a few weeks ago and it's actually been something i've really enjoyed... it takes so much of the stress out of cookie. Thank you again!
Response: I'm so glad you like the postcard and I hope you're enjoying Labor Day weekend! I'm trying to get caught up on this season's GoT :)
Comment: Great card! I always wanted to go to Atlantic City! I grew up in Massachusetts and love the east coast beaches! It's funny that you sent your card from Connecticut because I sent a Connecticut postcard for this swap! Lol! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for the smile!
