Comment: I was just now going through my old mail, and realized I hadn't rated youâ€”sorry! I really liked the art cards, especially the Matisse, and the helicopter & bicycle stamps are fabulous. =smile=
Comment: Hello Natalia, thank you very much for your wonderful cards. The Netherlands has changed over the centuries, but the view is still the same;) did you know we have a hermitage dependence in Amsterdam? It's a wonderful museum! Enjoy your day best wishes,
Comment: Thanks so much Natalia for the nice "blinis" postcard! Overhere they are called "pannekoeken" !
Thanks so much for your resend PC too! I love the lady on her horse! I'll send you a PC from Holland in return!
Comment: Today I got your awesome package. I absolutely love everything. I am impressed by the PCs, coins and what a lovely spoon, a beautiful magnet and stickers. You made my day. :) Have a nice day, Mateja
Response: I'm glad that the package came so soon! You're welcome!
Comment: Your wonderful card arrived today. Thanks so much0--it's great. I've not seen that image before. All the more special since you bought it on vacation and from a Helsinki Museum. Hope you had a great vacation!
Comment: Sorry it's taken me so long to rate: Thank you SO much for the Kandinsky postcard. I'm a huge Kandinsky fan, and I'd never seen a reproduction of that particular painting beforeâ€”it's beautiful! I have wanted to visit the Hermitage for a **long** time. Maybe some day I will. =sigh=
Response: It's really worth visiting! Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Natalia, thank you for your lovely postcard! When I was little, more than 18 years ago my parents visited the Hermitage Museum, so it was a pleasant surprise to receive something from there :o).
Comment: Patience seems to be the key on mail to and from Russia. (I'm in the USA.) I received your postcard on March 9, 2012 and I can see that you mailed it on time Feb 20th. It is a lovely postcard and quite large! I love that you chose "The House of Books" postcard for this swap. I appreciate the recommendations. I have only recently discovered biographies and I will have to see if my library has any of the books you mentioned.
Response: Oh, yeah! Russian postcrossers drew a logo for russian mail with a snail on it, because it is really SNAIL mail. But it's getting a little bit better. I'm glad that the card made it.
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard - I love 18th century still life paintings - the seemingly disparate objects and so beautifully rendered. I also think it's the fastest I've ever received a postcard from Russia. Thanks again.
Comment: Hi Natalia! Beautiful card and prayers and blessings to the young soul that drew it. By the way, did you send me a package for a sway that was in a brown envelope with a cardboard back? If so, it was destroyed by the US Postal Service:0(((( Let me know. Teri
Response: No, this package wasn't mine, I only risk postcard swaps due to bad postal service here in Russia. Glad that the postcard made its way!
