Comment: Hi Dawna. Thanks for the card. I lived in SF for a year a long time ago. Love that city. Lucky you. If our health issues get resolved we are taking a river cruise on the Columbia River on Easter weekend. Sure hope we don't have to cancel!
Comment: Thank you for your beautiful card. I know the feeling of losng your best friend. I've lost my 14 year old cat Dopey this January. He was the best. I'ts really hard to let go of our furry friends.
Comment: Thank you for the really cute cat cards! I love them all. I am curious what the "Turn" stickers on the envelope are about??
Response: So glad you liked the Kitty goodies:) TURN is The Utility Reform Network. It is a public advocacy group in California , a utility "watchdog" so to speak. www.turn.org is their website. Happy Swapping!
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard. It did make me chuckle as I am a classically trained vocalist. More importantly though, thank you for the FANTASTIC postage stamp. I am a huge baseball geek and never knew there were Wrigley Field postage stamps. I am going to have to look these up. Once again, thanks--russ
Comment: OH my gosh love the blue cat card! that is great!! We are having a nice warm snap - hoping it carries through til it thaws. But who knows, mother nature usually surprises us with a couple really cold days to show us who's in charge haha. Am eagerly waiting on summer, this will be our first summer to stay home and not travel in years! have lots of yard work we want to do and have to host some yard sales to get rid of some treasures we don't need anymore. Will be a fun one!! :) Thank you for the great card!
Comment: Hello Dawn,
Oooooh Dawn, I am so glad you told me where you got your Animal Art Postcards. I just love these postcards and so I am going to have to pick up the box of Animal Art. We don't have too many foxes in NM either. Like you , we have lots of coyotes and grey wolves--probably more grey wolves than coyotes. Thanks again for the postcard.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely San Diego postcard! My brother lives in Lemon Grove. I did get the chance to visit Balboa Park on one of my visits, so much to see and do there! You have great weather year round too :)
Comment: Hi Dawna! I love the Canoe postcard! I also love the MA Stamp! Never seen one.. and being from MA, I need to get my hands on some of those! :-) I have a friend in CT, I will have to ask him if he and his family have been to that lake.. Thank you again!
Comment: I as actually taking a walk in the park last year and saw an armadillo walking out of the trees and I was so excited. I took like a million pictures with my phone, ha! Usually I only see them as roadkill sadly. I hope you get to see one. Thanks for the card!
Comment: Thank you Dawna for your postcard!
I've never been to Italy either. But you are Right about traveling by train in Europe. In May I'm going to visit my sister on Denmark and we will go by train.
Comment: Hi Dawna! I love when you are my sending partner ;+) You always send the nicest cards. First, the notecard with the little dogs on a scooter is adorable! I'm really crazy for the polar bear, rabbit, and butterfly cards and I'm so happy to add some nice touristy cards to my stash as well. Thanks, too, for the cutest EVER bookmark!
Thank you for the â€œPâ€ postcard you sent me for this swap. I like palm trees as well. I also like when they are decked out in white light. The palm trees look especially beautiful! I will add your postcard to my alphabet collection proudly.
Comment: Thanks, Dawna. After the 1st of the year I'm going to start a 9-month regimen of a medication that won't allow me to drink any alcohol. I will miss my nightly glass of wine, but until then I am saying "Cheers!" as often as possible!
Comment: Thank you for the vintage style musical theater postcard - I've always enjoyed "Oklahoma," and one of the songs listed on the postcard - "Oh What a Beautiful Morning" - is one of my favorites that I play regularly on the piano. Thanks again.
Comment: Love the cards. The Vermont covered bridge is a favorite and a new one for my covered bridge collection. Can't believe Christmas is so close to being here. Have a nice one and don't eat too many "goodies".
Comment: I didn't even notice the bent corner until you mentioned it! It looks like a nice place to visit. Our family went to the Lake of the Ozarks when I was about 5. All I remember is this blue water. I think I needed glasses, because nothing is clear in my memory. hahaha Thanks for the PC!
Comment: Super view card of Harvard University. I hear so much about this University I didn't realize that it was so vast. Thank you very much Dawna and all the best to you for the holiday season too :)
Comment: Hi Dawna! You always send such special cards, it's such a pleasure to be partnered together! My absolute favorite is the bear card from the Great Smoky Mountains . . . for some reason I LOVE bears!
Comment: I'm loving this series, and I really adore the postcard you sent. I also sent a tornado, though mine was a picture of an actual tornado. We get them often here in the spring and fall. They are wonderfully interesting but truly devastating
Comment: Hi Dawna, thanks for the card of Yosemite. I grew up in Northern Calif., so I've been several times. Amazing place -- really does look as grand as in photos. Hope you can visit some day! Best, al
Comment: Hi Dawna, thank you for the"pillow" pc. I like to sprawl out at the beach with a book...thats summer living for me. Brrr....it snowed abit here last night. The last time we had snow in November was 1984...Happy Autumn swapping. Take very good care.
Comment: I think you can have a great time at the bar. Thank you for the card. Yeah i visited Ireland some years ago - splendid memories: welcoming friendly people and stunning landscape...cross my fingers that you can go there too ;)
Comment: Hi Dawna! Such fun to swap pc's together. First, I LOVE that little notesheet with the ribbon through the top--so cute. I LOVE that you sent pc's that are on my profile wishlist--2 maps, a zoo card, an Alaska card, and a San Fran card! Thank you SO much for choosing so thoughtfully.
Response: So glad you liked them! I enjoy trying to pick just the right PC's when I can. I found a box of those ribbon cards at a thrift shop. I think they are supposed to be wedding invites but WTH right?
Comment: Dawna, you spoil me! I have the most wonderful collection of Ganesha PCs courtesy of you. Thank you so much for once again going above and beyond to make a swap extra special. Love those bat stickers too!
Response: So glad you liked them, and the stickers too. Alas that really is the last of my Ganesh stash. Perhaps I will come across more someday!
Comment: When my cat had kittens in 2001, the kittens used to run across my roommates keyboard keys.... so I guess they were playing an instrument. Maybe not intentionally, but it was pretty cute. I still have both the cat and one of the kittens and I can't imagine either having the energy to walk over to a keyboard and lay down, let alone run across it.
Response: I have two 5 month old kittens right now. Their favorite thing to do is run across my desk when I am using it!
Comment: Thank you, Dawna. You always manage to find just the right card(s) for me, & you've done it again! I love Hokusai's art & the wave in particular, and of course you know my fondness for elephants. I hadn't seen the one you sent before & I like it a lot. Thank you so much for your thoughtful choices,for sending an extra one & for sending them blank in such a fun notecard. It's a hoot! (couldn't resist.)
Comment: Thank you Dawna for the postcard showing the amazing re-creation of Cellini's Salt Cellar, presented at the Festival of Arts & Pageant of The Masters. Incredible live works I've seen from a video. Hope you have a Happy October!
Comment: Thanks for the great PCs for this swap - I love the guinea pig and haven't received a PC of one for quite some time. I also love the plough horses - they are such a magnificent animal. . . and who doesn't love a funny but interesting tiger :-) Thanks again and happy swapping ~~
Comment: Hello Dawna,
Thank you for the lovely postcard of Kona. You are fortunate to have gone to so much of Hawaii. I would like to go to Maui. Everyone says it is so beautiful. Do you recommend any other island? This postcard will be a nice addition to my collection.
Comment: I love longhorns and yes they are huge. I lived in San Antonio when I was in 4th grade (my dad was stationed there) and then again for 7 years when I was in my 20s and I loved it. . .I hope you enjoyed your stay there and got to visit the River Walk. Thanks for the great PC - it brought back lots of great memories of Texas.
Comment: Thanks so much for the 101 art ad with the cafe! I do enjoy a good diner! Mom spent last weekend with me when my husband was traveling and our big adventures we're checking out a neighborhood diner for dinner then a different one for breakfast!
Comment: Dawna, thank you for the colorful Ocean City postcard. Love the cute sailboats. Today would be a perfect day to go out in one. Shirley
Dawna, thank you for the colorful Ocean City postcard. The sailboats are great. Shirley
Comment: Hello Dawn,
Thank you for the postcard of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. I have also never been to the Hall or seen the Bell. I have not even seen the replica. This will be a nice addition to my alphabet collection.
Comment: Thanks for the card with the bear--saw grizzlies when I was at Yellowstone. A carload of tourists sent their adolescent kids out in a meadow to get a closer look at the bears--a mom with cubs!
Comment: I'm so sorry for your loss. We lost our 18 year old kitty last year, so I know just how hard it is. We wound up adopting a 4 yr old beauty from the local shelter who has become my little love! Thanks so much for the awesomely cool PC!
Comment: Thank you very much for the beautiful postcard of San Diego that you sent me ... My son's name is Diego :-) ... I also love cats, I have 2 cats and 1 dog too. In Chile we are in winter, and it is cold, a little rain and many cloudy days ...
Comment: Thanks for the really nice butterfly card and stamp, I haven't had that stamp before! :D I'm definitely more of an autumn/winter person, summer is too hot for me, autumn is my favourite season!
Comment: Hello Dawna,
Thank you for the postcard you sent me showing G=Green. What a beautiful postcard to represent G=Green. It is Great to represent G=Green because there are so many different layers of greens--shades as well as kinds of greens. AS well as greens on the Earth there are also shades of Greens in the Quilt. That is Cool! This will be a good addition to my alphabet collection. Thank you!!
Comment: Howdy! I have been to Pennsylvania, back when I was choosing a college (I was interested in Bryn Mawr, but didn't end up going there), and my then-boyfriend was attending UPenn. Thanks for the memories! :)
Comment: Dawna, you spoil me! I just love those Mandala Publishing cards and am delighted to get another wonderful Ganesh card for my collection, especially since you thoughtfully sent it in an envie. Thank you so much!
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful postcard. It's interesting a company is making reproduction FLW patio furniture. I'm not sure how comfortable that is. Original pieces I've seen in the Minneapolis art museum doesn't look particularly ergonomic!
Comment: Thanks for nice quality cards - my favorite is the Eric Carle - his Very Hungry Caterpillar book was one of my kids' all time favorites - hopefully the caterpillar card will come my way someday, too! And one of our sons lived near Park City for a year and took us there, so great memory!
Comment: Thanks for the awesome polar bear postcard ðŸ˜ŠThe San Diego Zoo was amazing but I think the polar bears were the most spectacular. They are huge and beautiful but I wouldn't want to get anywhere near one in the wild. Have an amazing weekend, Nathan
Comment: Thank you so much for the beautiful Fan Quilt postcard! My friend's daughter said she couldn't make quilts. Then she had a surgery that kept her off work for 6 weeks and she was bored. That was 3 years ago and now she quilts circles around both me and her mom. She has even started designing her own patterns SO never say I can't do that.
Comment: Thanks alot for the three postcards you selected for me, they are all great! I really appreciate the state flag too, I dont have any of those yet :) Sorry for the late rating! (received 04-05-'17)
Comment: What a super PC, Dawna! I think it's a Christmas and New Year celebration card from Vienna....never could figure out what a "view card" is unless another name for a PC, but sure it's definitely from Vienna. Luv it...many thanks. Hearts and hugs....jinanne
Comment: I agree that it seems that modern architects don't push themselves--at least not in the way Wright consistently did. I wish we had more innovation in sustainability and design, and if I was only good at it myself, I'd try!
Comment: Dawna, thank you for the vintage postcard from Asheville, NC. It is on the opposite side of NC from me - from the mountains in Asheville to the flat lands of New Bern which is close to the Atlantic Ocean. Shirley
Comment: Dawna ~ Thank the great PCs for this swap. I loved the one of Oceanside - I'm very familiar with the beach there as I used to go there fairly often when I lived out there. I loved the Chinese building - their architecture is always so interesting to me. . .and the Lincoln boyhood home is a wonderful part of our history. Thanks again so much for the great PCs and hope to see you again in future swaps ~~
Comment: Hi Dawna
i love the Riverwalk. We visited friends in Wimberley a number of years ago and couldn't understand why the Twin Cities' riverfront is so drab compared to San Antonio's. Thanks for the memories.
Comment: O I love every piece of your card! The picture is really cool...the stamps "greetings from" stunning..oh I havent been in the states so far, but San Francisco is the one city I really want to discover one day. Have an awesome weekend.
Comment: I wouldn't call your postcard too messed up, but the post office did a bang up job messing it up some more. They tore off half of my name and the bottom right corner from the back side. LOL Thanks for swapping with me and I hope your March is wonderful.
Comment: Thanks for the great postcard ðŸ˜‹ I'll pretty much listen to anything that's not rap and I love good female vocals but classic rock is definitely what I listen to the most, especially seeing how the 90s is already considered classic. ðŸ˜œ P.S. I wish my favorite musicians could have figured out how to live past 27. Such a great loss.
Comment: Thanks so much for the great PCs. I really liked the birds one and the John Lennon one - such a loss to the world of music. The Circus Circus one brought back a lot of memories for me when I used to go to Vegas - such a fun casino :-) Thanks again and hope you're doing good ~~
Response: Thanks so much! I remember playing at Circus Circus when I was a kid :) That was way back when when parents weren't afraid to drop you off and leave LOL
Comment: It was so good to see you at my mailbox again - you always send such great PCs. These were all so good that I can't even pick a favorite and that is very unusual for me. Thank you so very much and I look forward to seeing you again in future swaps ~~
Response: I don't even know what to say, you are too kind. Thank you so much I have so much fun picking out the PC's and I am so glad you liked them.
Comment: Thank you for the card of Ganeshna. Dou you know the story of how he got his elephant head? His father Shiva cut off his human head because he didn't recognise him, and his mother Pavarti made Shiva repair the damage. That sounds like a rough childhood!
Comment: I wasn't able to join the Women's March, but I was totally there in spirit! I was glad to see so many people show that we're not at all blindly impressed by the megalomaniac in the White House.
Comment: Poor PC! The mailman dropped it just outside the mailbox and it landed in the mud and got rained on! I only picked it up becausevit looked like the shape of a PC. Then I saw that it was for me! No postal love on this one. Don' resend because the damage is minor. Thanks for the resend anyway.
Comment: I love the postcard! Cabaret is a favorite - I once saw a performance with my dad here at the university where I work. And it's in French, too! I hope you get to see it sometime. Thanks so much for sending it my way!
Comment: Thanks so much for the great PCs. I especially like the Mark Twain one (of course as a fellow reader0 and the FLW house - love his architecture. Thanks again and hope to see you in more swaps this year ~~
Comment: Thank you so much for sending me the postcard of my favorite Hindu god and for putting it in an envie too. I love Ganesh, the remover of obstacles & the patron deity of writers and new beginnings. Maybe his image will help me deal with election results!
Comment: I've always liked gorillas and the babies are so darn cute. They seem to be such powerful animals but also gentle. Hopefully you'll get over to Safari Park and see the latest baby - I'm sure he/she is drawing people in. Thanks for the great PC and hope to see you again in a future swap ~~
Comment: I do like this postcard of the painting of a Spanish village scene. I also like the curious inclusion of translations of "The friendship post card" on the back. The Spanish sounds nice: "La postal de la amistad." Thanks!
Comment: What a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright PC! I love the view of the framing holding up the roof and that light basket chandelier is just beautiful! I also love that it's a synagogue because I haven't come across too many postcards of synagogues.
Comment: This "New Beginnings" butterfly PC came at a time that I cannot deny had meaning. One of my favourite quotes has been "Without change, there would be no butterflies".
Without going into detail, know that this card came to where it was meant to be, I thank you for that ðŸ’œâ¤ï¸ðŸ’šðŸ’™ðŸ’›
Response: So happy you like it! Thanks for the rating and the heart.
Comment: OMG I thought I already rated you! I'm so sorry! Thank you so much for the magazine images! They're really neat! Can't believe you live so close to me ... I'm ready for this heat to go away! :)
Comment: Thanks for the resend. . . and I cannot imagine going to college on a campus that big. . . mine was also much smaller. It does look like a lovely college and certainly not as big as some, like Harvard!
Response: So glad it arrived! The 1st one I sent was a Tammany Lion hopefully it will show up someday it was neat. Enjoy!
Comment: You sent some beautiful PCs for this swap! I love nightviews - always so pretty - and the Oregon Coast is breathtaking. I really liked the one of Acadia National Park - my son lives in Maine and it is so beautiful there. Thanks again for the great PCs - you always send such perfect ones!
Comment: Hi Dawna! I received your pc of the beautiful lion yesterday (or maybe Wednesday, but I didn't go the Post Office Wednesday). I was reading and lost track of time. Big Cats are my favorites, too, so thank you for this postcard! And you're so lucky to live in San Diego with the zoo and animal park there. My parents have been members for years and years, but I haven't been there since I was a child. So thank you for sharing! :-)
Comment: Thank you for the bright, cheery Happy Birthday stamp and stunning, incisive view of Okuwa-Tse -- it reminds me of the vivid portraits of immigrants arriving in native dress at Ellis Island that I saw at the museum at the beginning of the summer. I almost expected them to begin talking or walking :) Hope you are enjoying some cooler weather -- it's markedly less humid and breezier today. Happy weekend <3
Comment: â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ The postcard you sent. I always wanted a VW van and the hub wanted one we could make into our own so we got an empty dodge and paneled, carpeted, wired sound systems, microwave, bench storage and had a kitchen cabinet place in Wisconsin make beautiful cabinets from our newspaper templates. We put a sunroof in & leathered the ceiling w scraps from a jacket factory. We had a lot of fun times w the van and I still wished for the VW mostly because it had Windows . Thanks for the blast from the pastðŸ˜€
Comment: Thank you for the Western Grebe postcard! I had to laugh when I saw that one of the babies on her back is squawking. "Mama, paddle faster! You're going too slowly and we're hungry!" ??? lol ;-) Hopefully someday you'll have the chance to see one in the wild. :-) Thank you for sharing!
Comment: Hi Dawna! That a sweet dog pc! Just a FYI - the post office must not like it turned that way, as there was .21 postage due, not complaining just wanted to let you know. We do have a furbaby, his name is Zeke, he will be 14 in December and he is a yellow lab mix - he is a hoot! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: That is weird! Thanks for letting me know- if we trade in an envie I will send it to you:) Glad you enjoyed the PC.
Comment: Thank you for the post card. I've never been to California. My brother-in-law moved back to IA from CA last year. After 30+ years. Was a big culture shock for him. Doesn't like our weather either. Thanks again.
Comment: Hi Dawna! Thank you for the beautiful selection of cards you sent for this swap. Love the St. Petersburg card, but my absolute favorite is that sweet bunny looking at the ladybug. Thanks, too, for that NEAT postage-stamp-covered envelope and the little envie with the pretty purple lace. So thoughtful.
Comment: I love this postcard - it's one of my favorite types! And I remember being in that room in Williamsburg many years ago! We lived in Maryland at the time, and all of the fourth grade classes went on a field trip to Williamsburg one day - what a blast! Thanks so much for sending this to me!
Comment: Thank you so much for the adorable kitty postcard. Our babies have a lot in common. Kiki is 16 and has mild kidney disease. For the most part she is doing well though. Give Dude a hug from me ðŸ˜ºðŸ’œ
Comment: Thank you for the "Still Life with Blonde" postcard. I'm glad you have ocean breezes to give some relief to the unusual humidity you're having. Heat and humidity are pretty much the norm for July and August here in South Central PA. It feels like being locked up in a greenhouse. Ugh!
Comment: Great selections of PC for this "M" swap! I really like the manatee because it's so 'up close and personal' of this beautiful creature. Thanks again for the great PCs and hope to see you again in future swaps ~~
Comment: Thank you for the PC! I started watching Supernatural at the end of season 7 and totally got sucked into the fandom... I love it! I'm currently in the middle of Gishwhes. I've logged more than 3000 miles on my car since it started earlier this week, driving around to different places lol
Comment: Thank you for the beautifully decorated envelope (and your adorable kitten address label :D), striking animal-adorned notecard from the Holocaust Museum, and beautiful cards (and the extra!), Dawna! The Jantzen sweater card is a favorite that I'm glad to have "returned" to me, and that Austrian State Hall library is breathtaking, not unlike the Beast giving his library to Belle. Hope you are having a good weekend!
Comment: Hi Dawna! Thank you for the lovely cards; my favorite is the vintage card with bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush. Thanks, too, for creating such a pretty envelope; those little kitty stickers are the BOMB!
Comment: Thanks for the great vintage card. I have been to Vegas before but never to Reno. Perhaps someday. I noticed you enjoy Stephen King. I was travelling in Maine on the weekend and was by his house and took a picture of it. It's a neat place!
Comment: Thanks for the cool jet PC ðŸ˜‹ I can't wait to fly to San Diego Tuesday. Comic-con is always a good time and the weather is always better than Florida. I need to figure out something fun to do Wednesday. The aircraft carrier was fun last year and the zoo was amazing the year before.
Response: Glad you liked the PC. Try the Safari Park in Escondido- it is amazing you won't be dissapointed. The Scripps Aquarium and Balboa Park are good beys too. Have fun!
Comment: Hi Dawna!
Thank you for this great Navy themed PC :) Love those guys!!
My cousin is a naval officer (cartographer) and she did 2 tours in Iraq! My brother is at 29 Palms and is a gunny sgt - he works in experimental artillery!
hugs and many thanks! Have a great weekend!
Comment: What a great photo of a fox! I love the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. The renovations they've made to the Elsinore Outlet Center were SO needed. It's a million times more enjoyable to walk around with the new shade covers.
Comment: I love the pandas. . .and yes we do have them at the National Zoo in DC!! I also loved the San Diego Zoo when I lived in southern California - that's the first place I saw a live Koala as well as a live Polar Bear way back in the late 70s! Thanks again for the great panda PC and hope you have a great week and weekend ~~
Comment: Thanks for the pc's! I especially like the aerial, map and Reno one. I went to Reno "back in the day"; found out shortly after being there, I was pregnant. No wonder I was so tired all the time - I thought it was because of the heat. haha
Comment: Apologies for the late rating. My husband had surgery here in Erie, a lot of things went wrong and we ended up at Cleveland Clinic. We just got home Sat June 2 to a PILE of mail. Thank you for the postcard
Comment: Love the night skyline chicago card you sent. I've been there in cold weather but escaped getting stuck there. Glad you got a bit of extra vacation. Thank for the nice postcard and happy swapping :-)
Comment: Thank you for helping brighten my day with your gorgeous, bright Kandinsky card and Mentoring stamp :) I remember learning about him in my Modernism seminar and seeing some of his work at MoMA in a similarly-themed exhibit. I also love that quote! Hope you are having a good week!
Comment: We must have a similar collection of pcs! interstingly, the lady with the pill box is one thing of my faves in the health postcard book and I always s skip past it when I pick pcs for other, I'd hate to part with it, so I was super happy to see you sent me one, now I have 2! You have great taste in postcards! ;)
Comment: I love the PCs you chose for this swap! The peacock is just gorgeous and the hamster is so darn cute. The gorilla is just adorable and looks like it would be cuddly :-) Thanks for much for the great PCs and hope you have a wonderful weekend ~~
Comment: Hi Dawna! What a fun place to get a card from! I need to check out some of the smaller museums in the St. Louis, MO area to see if I can find a free/ad pc to share! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Comment: Hi Dawna, I love the postcards. Today it is 68 degrees Fahrenheit and absolutely beautiful. I'm looking forward to spring! Of course, you have spring like weather just about all the time! With every good wish for a happy and healthy life, Jane
Comment: I absolutely adore this PC! It will definitely be one I keep of for display. Vintage ads, especially medical ones, are some of my favorite subject matter. I was never a good skater and have gotten worse as an adult- I have no balance! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for choosing postcards that match my profile. I love the Ganesh & Chaplin cards especially. Thanks for the Russian & Ukrainian bank notes as well! Wonderful ephemera for my collages. Happy New Year!
Response: Happy you liked them. I have more Gamesh if we ever trade again- I found a whole book of them:)
Comment: Thank you for the Coca-Cola postcard. I did not know that there is a Coke store in Las Vegas. I guess that explains why some of the postcards at The World of Coke (Atlanta) say Las Vegas on them!
Comment: It was so good to see you at my mailbox again :-) The PCs you sent are great. . . the one of San Diego brings back many good memories from when I lived in California and would go there to get away from the LA area. I also liked the adorable card you used -- dogs are such fun in the snow! Thanks again and hoping life is going great for you ~~
Comment: Thank you for the great PCs!! I love the musicals (of course!) as well as the artistic photos of a Pioneer Woman and the ladies in hammocks! Have a wonderful day and thanks for the super cute cat card with stickers - made me giggle!
Comment: OMG what a tattoo. I envie the tattoo makers, they can draw so beautiful. My youngest daughter has just 1 little tattoo. On her belly, you can only see it when she wears bikini. (I warned her: I don't want to see any tattoo when you will be wearing a weddingdress in future.) It is a chinese sign and it means: woman.
Response: So glad you liked it. I am too chicken to get a tattoo but if I did it would be a cat:)
Comment: Hi Dawna! I think this is going to be one of my favorite PCs! It's absolutely adorable. Thank you so much! It's been pretty chilly here in SF these last few days, supposed to go up to 80 for the weekend :)
Comment: Great PC!! It reminded me of the first time I flew into San Francisco years ago -- I didn't know they had dual runways and another plane was coming in for a landing on a runway next to ours and when I looked out the window all I could see was another plane and it seemed we could be racing to see who landed first! I lived near busy airports and sometimes I think this is really what it looks like at times! Thanks again for the great PC and have a great weekend ~~
Response: So glad you liked it. SFO always scared me because it always looked like we were going to land in the water LOL,
Comment: This was a great PC you sent for this swap -- I love the Starry Night painting and have a print in my kitchen . . .and I've seen these do portraits on line and love them. I'm a big dog lover and my friend has several Australian Shepherds. Thanks again for the great PC ~~
Response: Si glad you liked it- I sure hoped you would:)
Comment: Great cards! I enjoyed the Pixar cards and got a great laugh out of the Reynolds comic card! Thank you so much!
PS - The Greenpeace polar bear card you sent the cards in is my favorite photo of all time. It was a great addition to the package you sent!
Comment: Lucky this one made it, Dawna -- the post office did a real number on your envelope. If it tells you anything, part of the postmark was on the pretty flowered card you used! But all the cards were fine-USPS put your envie into one of theirs and it arrived. Not sure how 'touristy' the dead nun one is, but it is certainly up my alley-I have a lot of nun cards so this goes along with those. That Michigan card is really pretty. thanks much, Carol in Denver
Response: Wow that is something. Thank goodness the PC;s were OK. Yes. I threw the Nun in as an extra since I saw on your profile that you liked them. Should have been 4 PC's in there. Happy swapping!
Comment: Thank you for this really cool postcard! Very unusual. I like it. I like the walking dead, too. I think my favorite character right now is Abraham. I think it has something to do with that red hair. LOL Hope you are having a nice summer. It's way too hot here.
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! I love architecture and the Sunnylands home (see the irony for this swap?) is amazing. It's still in the 90's here, I could certainly use a big pool like that to take a nice swim!
Comment: Hi Dawna! Thanks for the lovely cards to fulfill this swap. My absolute favorite is the big cat! I love everything Cavallini! I adore the Flower Fairies card, too, and I know LOTS of the music from Oklahoma. My cousin was a singer and my mother was a musicals NUT . . . you can't find a show tune I don't know! Great selection and fun to open. Loved your comment about the red-haired woman . . . .LOTS of those Renaissance women had red hair--and tons of it!
Comment: I got this card last night and then I saw a white rhino on TV. It was a commercial about an upcoming show but I didn't catch when. It might have been Nola. My hubby can go through 150 channels in less than a minute. Heaven help you if you want to see something. He can't ever find it again. Thanks for the card.
Comment: Thanks a bunch for the San Diego zoo card with the "laughing" chimpanzee, and the Frans de waal quote. I completely agree with him wrt chimps.
I visited the SD Zoo many years ago and spent the best part of an hour communing with the orangutan!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcards. I am excited by the Boston one. Harvard has shown interest in my daughter playing soccer for them so we are visiting in August. I have never been there and I am so excited for her!
Comment: Oh - Roma! Thank you so much! I love Italy - Been there a couple of times - Hope you make it over there, too. Thank you for the wonderful post cards - and - Super thanks for joining my little swap - Hope you had fun. Happy day to you .
Comment: Thank you for the great collection of postcards that you passed along. I LOVED the Portland Flag postcard, but also the Sanibel Island one was significant for me. I went there every Christmas Day with my grandparents for over 10 years when visiting them for the holidays...they lived nearby. Thanks for bringing back great memories :)
Comment: Looks like we have something in common! So have I! I am near-sighted and have myopia as well. Won't wear contacts, so it's been glasses for me for as long as I can remember. When I was 7, they fitted me with a patch-it had a unicorn on it. lol
Comment: Your card really appealed to my offbeat sense of humor. I found it particularly amusing because I had just been watching a "men at work" crew installing new power poles on my street. I swear they had a card game going on in one of the trucks!
Comment: Wow, loved this postcard. I am reading a book about Lincoln and the Civil war right now for the book club I run (www.politics4thepeople.wordpress.com). Could not have been more perfect and I love B and W photos also!
Response: So glad you liked it. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Congratulations Dawna on your fabulous find of some Vintage PC's you found at a thrift store! Its fun to find an assortment of PC's, then enjoyment to write them & send out for swaps. Thank you for the PC multivew of dams, bridges, castle in France. Interesting views on one PC!
Comment: Revised 10/18 - Dawna, forgive me. I noticed that I had forgotten to add the heart. Dawna, I love the pc from Carlsbad. I don't think I've heard of a ranunculus before. Love the town and windmill in the background. I love pcs that are colorful like this one. Many hearts to you.
Comment: What a small world that you should find a card for a motel in my little town all the way in your town. This motel is still standing but has been abandoned for some time. But it was open when I was a young teenager and I actually swam in the pool because my friend's parents managed it. Long story short, I LOVE this card and it made my day.
Comment: Thanks for the lovely seaside view of La Jolla! I need to make sure on my next trip to the San Diego area to go take in all of the pinnipeds (I knew about them last time, but already had a crammed schedule--next time, La Jolla seals & sea lions will be a part of it)!
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely vintage postcard which I found waiting from me when returning from my holidays yesterday. I love the old vintage look with the carved edges and YES the waterfall looks like paradise indeed! Xx Nina
Comment: Thank you for the cool retro card--wow, scalloped edges & everything!
Hmm, both of my partners on this swap opened with "hello again!" As a newbie here, the repeats--and there have been many already--have surprised me! Lots to learn! :)
Comment: I have received many lovely postcards which all deserved a heart, but it did not occur to me it was possible to receive 'just a postcard' and be sad about the fact I can only give 1 heart. This card was perfect! Not only the image, also the quote and the stamps. Thank you so much!
Comment: Thank you for the TWO wonderful postcards! You didn't have to send out another one! No reason to feel bad! Lol. I absolutely love BOTH postcards! Thank you! And thank you for the postage stamps:)
Comment: I dig the flying bear! There was a story in the local paper yesterday about an off-leash dog who was chasing a bear on a trail in the foothills, only to have the bear turn and start chasing the dog. Had the bear wings, that dog would be dinner!
Comment: Thanks Dawna! I love the PCs you picked for me! Especially the Bear! Thanks for the stickers and extra papers too! I have been to Oceanside, its lovely! Have fun when you come to Portland! Hope its not too hot when you're here! We've been having some crazy weather. Take care! Thanks again! :)
Response: So glad you liked everything. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Hello again! I always love getting postcards from you! The vampire one is amazing! I LOVE it! It is now one of my very favorites! And yes I did raise a vampire! 2 boys that suck all the energy from me! Lol! I also love the "irish immigration" stamp! Thank you!
Comment: Beautiful sailboats - I love to watch them skimming across the water but have never been on one . . . I have a fear of getting on one but I sure love to watch them. Thanks for the beautiful PC ~~
Comment: Thanks for the baby and mama camel PC; love it! Believe it or not, I just saw some camels yesterday on a buffalo ranch in Wyoming! It was quite a strange site; seems so out of place in comparison to the arid normal environment, although the summers in Wyoming are very arid. Don't know how they exist at 20 below zero though during the winters!
Comment: Hi Dawna . . . what a pleasure to receive cards from you! Your choices were wonderful. The 'New Yorker' kitty slinking through the garden is gorgeous and I love the Sibley bird card, too. Thanks so much for the extras as well...what fun!
Comment: Wow! What a neat selection. I especially love the vintage Indiana map card. I've never seen that one before and truly like it. It amazes me the many cards that are floating around. Thanks again!
Comment: Love this PC!! I grew up in South Dakota and we had prairie dogs and they are so darn cute. They are such fun to watch if you find a prairie dog 'town' and in many areas they allow people to get quite close to them. Thanks for the great PC that brought back great memories of my growing up years. Happy swapping ~~
Response: So glad you liked it, I thought they were adorable as well. Thanks for the heart!
Comment: Dawna, I never took the bus... I walked to school, uphill both ways, barefoot in the snow...
... well, actually I live in Southern California so it's pretty much always warm here and only uphill on the way home, oh, and I always had on shoes. :D Have a great day!
Comment: That wig might look good on my Buffy! ;oP I get a kick out of pictures of cats & dogs dressed up, but it's not something I would do myself. One of my nieces has been dressing her cats since she was a little girl, and I think when they were living on a farm she was even dressing up the chickens. If I ever tried to put something on any of the cats I've ever had (one exception being a lover boy Burmese I had years ago), it wouldn't end well for me!
Thanks for the great card! :oP
Response: Thanks for the heart :) Glad you liked it. My poor cat Peaches I had as a child used to get dressed up in doll clothes often. Poor guy!
Comment: Thank you for the PCs and extra stickers - LOVE the pirate postcard... will have to hang on to that one for sure! You're right ~ you aren't too far away from me, although it's cooler where you are than here! Have a great day!
Response: So glad you liked them, thanks for the heart!
