Comment: What a fun santa surprise! Just ehen I opened the envelope and took out the postcards, before even looking at them, suddenly Santa is staring at me! Thanks for making such a fun envie for the swap! I enjoy the ocs, too, of course! My favorites are the tram and the extra one-sort of a green kalidescope view of trees! Neat! if I go somewhere that has any kind of a historic tram it's always top of my list to visit it!
Response: very happy you liked the swap! I can't really take credit for the envelope, though, I got it from my penfriend and used it for the swap :) Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Just love your letter, so wonderful to receive such a lovely letter, thank you. One of my coworkers just came back from Europe and he said the heat was horrible especially since no one has air conditioning!
The cold brew tea looks like it will be quite tasty and great on a warm day. Yes I love the map envelopes. The spoon is really cute, great to stir tea and I definitely won't wash it in the dish washer. :)
Thank you for such a lovely swap and hope it cools off soon.
Response: We've had a couple of cool rainy days this week, the temperature is back to normal now :) I am really happy you liked the items I sent. Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Love love love the Like & Yellow tulip!! Keepers for my stash! Is the ugly one the mud volcano? If so I still find it cool! I love gelogy! Thanks for the extras, very nice of you!
Response: I am very happy you like the postcards! LOL, I believe it is a mud volcano. There is an English caption on the back, I think it says a mud volcano. I just thought it was such an unphotogenic thing to put on a postcard! LOL
Comment: Thank you for the great cards you chose for this swap, Magda, and for the two delightful extras as well. I adore the one of the exercising men following the corkscrew leader! It is just the kind of offbeat humor I love. Gorgeous stamp on your envie, too. I think Czech Republic has some of the most beautiful stamps in the world.
Response: I did think you might like it. And was very happy to finally have a partner to send it to! It definitely is not everyone's cup of tea :) Thank you for the heart.
Comment: OH my god! OMG! When I saw that box, i was just... Damn girls! And then I started unpacking, all the beautiful stuff you send to me... It's just... WoW! And then I saw it... That last package in the box... YOU GOT ME A BOOK?! I'm just... I LOVE YOU, LIKE FOR REAL! I'm just blown away! If I could, I would give you a million hearts! <3
Response: Youo are most welcome. I am glad you liked the swap. I just hope you'll enjoy reading the book as well! :)))
Comment: What an absolutely gorgeous parcel, dear Magda! Thank you so much! I love what you picked for me, the way you lovingly wrapped everything and that you kept it a surprise until I had opened each parcel because you put the little note explaining the letter inside the little packages. Wonderful! Yes, I did have to defend my thesis, but I'm done with that now too and everything went really well. Now I'm torn between job hunting and also considering a PhD. Exciting times! Wishing you the best of luck with your dissertation, too!
Response: I am really happy to hear you liked the items. I very much enjoyed reading your profile! I hope you decide to do PhD! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for re-sending this swap. The rose postcard you chose for me is beautiful! What do you think of "The Bell Jar?" I've been tempted to read this book in the past but haven't done so yet. I'm sure my library has it and I'll keep it in mind. :)
Response: Great to hear that the resend reached you. I really liked the book, although it's a bit depressing, how some things have not changed, or changed just a little. I recommend it. It also helps with understanding her poems.
Comment: Hi Magda, thank you so much for the resend of this swap! It got to me today and yes, I'm with you on the fact that this postcard is ugly. Poor you having to smile when getting the whole set as a present LOL :O
Response: Thank you for the heart! Well, 4 more to go from the set! LOL
Comment: Thank you so much for your lovely package. I am truly sorry that my profile wasn't as informational as it could have been. I will see to that for future swaps. I am saving the wrapped present for Christmas :)
Response: I hope you will like the presents :) Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you so much for the extra delicious chocolates! I loved them all, especially the minty ones! They were gone in a matter of minutes! Yummy! :) We have snow in the Northern Finland but not in the South where I live. We had snow for 2 days but then it melt away. Hopefully we will get some more nearer Christmas. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks again! :)
Response: I seriously do not understand how can somebody enjoy mint chocolate :) !!!! just kidding, of course, happy you liked my chocolate choices for you.
Comment: Thank you for your tulip postcard! My favourite flowers... I like almost all, but poppies might be one of my favourite ones. Lily-of-the-valley is Finland's national flower, so maybe it's typical flower here. :) Happy autumn days!
Response: hi, thank you for rating. I like poppies very much, too. Happy autumn!
Comment: Hi Magda! What a lovely package of 3 things in an envie that I received today. Everything is so beautiful and thoughtful..from the nice notepad papers, right down to the bird stickers! Thank you so much for that lovely envelope! You made my day ðŸ’™ðŸ’œðŸ’š
Response: Very happy to hear you liked the stuff :) thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for sending your list---the card is beautiful! I read The Joy Luck Club several times but it was years ago. I should read it again! You'll love Girl With a Pearl Earring. I've read it several times too. The others on your list look really interesting. I'll look them up. Thanks!
Response: I'll be starting the Pearl Earring soon, I am really looking forward to it. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Magda I completely loved your swap! The beautiful badge, the spoon to swoon over, the gorgeous trim, the beautiful soap, that interesting chocolate and the pretty card. All beautifully packaged as well. I feel so lucky to have had you as a partner.
Response: I am very happy that the swap has arrived, and that you liked the items (especially the trim, I really like these, but it's not everybody's thing). Thank you for the kind rating.
Comment: Hi Magda, I was so excited at the thought you sent me a calendar that I opened my gift. My goodness, what a wonderful gesture, not one but TWO beautiful picture calendars from your part of the world, not to mention the trouble you'd gone to to with the list of translations! I'll think of you with fond memories throughout the year. A very BIG thankyou. Warm wishes, love, Mandy
Response: I am super happy you liked the calendars! Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thanks for the awesome PC ðŸ˜‹â¤ï¸ I showed it to my friend and commented that I didn't know if any of the items would actually come back to you if thrown like a boomerang and she said maybe the boobs if they liked the attention they got ðŸ˜³ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ Brightened my Monday for sure. Have a great day, Nathan
Comment: Dear Magda, just wow...
You are such a sweety - guess what:
Today, yeah - I received your wonderful package with lovely bath-tube items from your country - very tasty, very stylish, very elegant. M a n y thanks for that cool swap â¤
Greetings to Brno & big waves,
Response: Thank you, I am glad you liked the swap :)
Comment: thank you for the cute PC and the beautiful stamp that came with it! I admit, I had assumed Mucha was french due to the style being somewhat similar to that of Steinlein. I have learned today :)
Comment: Thanks for the wonderful envie! I love the way you packaged everything in cute packages. I almost felt it was like christmas. I especially like the special nail stickers. I will definitely use them soon. I just used the watercolor you sent, it is so wonderful. The color is vibrant and different from my watercolor set. Your package is one of my favorites on swap-bot. I sent you a message asking for a private swap, let me know if you are interested.
Response: It's great to hear that you liked the swap. I used to have that watercolor set when I was at primary school and remembered the lovely vibrant colors, and was curious if they still make them. They do! So I got one set for myself as well :)
Comment: Found your PC - unrated - sorry - it got in with son's mail. It's been years since I read D H Lawrence - will have to give it another try. Sometimes going back to the classics is really enjoyable. Loved the card - beautiful mare and foal and great stamp. Thanks. Chris crispycritter
Comment: Hi Magda,
happy 2016 still - all fine?
Yeah, finally it's here - thanks a bunch for that cool book from a Czech author as wished - it sounds thrilling! Most kind of you - happy swapping...and best wishes! â™¥
Comment: Thank you magda for your letter! I enjoyed reading about your home, and remember how it was years ago when I went to college, and lived in a dormitory! It was fun!!! Thanks for stirring those memories!
Comment: What a gorgeous selection of adorable socks. I wish I could give five hearts, because you had a challenge with me having huge feet. I felt sorry for you! Thank you so much for meeting that challenge so well. Beautifully wrapped and bright colourful socks. I unwrapped to see if they 'might' fit. They fit beautifully! Thank you so much. â™¥
Response: Thank you for your kind words. I am sooo happy you liked the socks and that they fit! Take care and happy swapping!
Comment: What a beautiful pc (and stamp) Wow..I seriously doubt I could concentrate on anything in such a beautiful city as Prague...like you stated too many distractions. Thanks for the wonderful card.
Response: I am glad you like it! Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hi Magna, I received your pc today. I really like it, I dont understand "modern"paintings very well but it's interesting. I have to say, you have very nice printing :) Have a lovely day and happy summer swapping.
Response: I am glad you like it :) thank you for the heart!
Comment: Ahoj ;) i spasibo :) for the nice package you sent. It was great to read a letter in Russian. The tea smells delicious and the chocolate looks yummy. And all the other goodies are great too! Dekuji
Response: Good to hear you liked what I sent and that you were able to read my azbuka! Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Hello Magda,
Thank you for your postcard. My husband for 35 years knows how to prove how much he loves me. I'm wearing today a beatiful necklace he bought for me. And another thing I love about him: When I try new clothes and I think: well, that is expensive. Then he says: You like it? Then buy it. It may sound oldfashioned in your ears, but we are already 63, so we are a little oldfashioned in the eyes of young people. ;-)
Funny is: www.bronxshoes.com on your addcard, is a shoefactory in my country.
Have a nice day.
You can see my necklace here:
Response: Awww, thatÂ´s really sweet and romantic. Thank you for sharing this and for the heart.
Comment: Thank you, thank you!!! I am sure I will love the face and hair masks! Balea is a good brand. :) Don't worry about not having Krtek postcards, the ones you sent are great! I especially love the Mucha and the Loggia del Bigallo illustration. So gorgeous! Thank you, you really made my day!
Response: I am very happy that you like the items. Thank you for the heart!
Thank you for your wonderful recipes & cute butterfly notecard. I am going to visit my son & daughter in-law next week and I am going to make that Garlic soup! I love to cook but have never heard of Garlic soup. I can't wait to try it. And the the dessert too!
It is always so fun to see recipes and snail mail from across the globe. Thank you for sharing with me.
Response: Thank you for the comment and heart. I hope you all enjoyed the soup :)
Comment: Hi Magda!
Thank you so much for everything you sent me! I can't wait to try to MAKE them all! I love how you sent me like the real dish of your country! When I opened your package, I was drooling because it sounded so good ( lol ) Thank you for joining my swap and THANK YOU A HUNDRED time for box! I'm glad you liked this swap and join it again! I'll make sure to contact you for a round 3 then!
Response: I am so very happy that the parcel arrived alright and that you liked the contents! Best of luck with cooking the stuff :) I hope you will enjoy the dish :)
Comment: Hi Magda, Thank you for the beautiful card filled with a hand written note. I have always said that the printed sentiment is never as good as a hand written one, so thank you for making my day with your wishes for a Merry Christmas and New year for my family!
Comment: I love the Advent postcard you sent. I just saw on TV a special on Christmas around the world and they explained about the advent wreaths. What a lovely tradition. Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you and your family.
Response: Thank you for rating and for the heart. I am really happy you like the postcard! Merry Christmas!
Comment: I received a beautiful wrapped envelope, I think its yours :) 29/12 UPDATE: Wow! That was a very cool pack with so many postcards, I loved all! I enjoyed your letter, too :) You deserve a million hearts, Happy New Year! :)
Response: sorry, there was a tag on the envelope saying it was from me but it mights have gotten damaged/lost in the mail. If its golden flowery pattern, then its from me for sure
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderfully wrapped gifts! I couldn't resist and already opened them up. You totally met my taste with these books and the stationary set! Big thanks to you! I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas and New Year! <3
Response: And wonderful Christmas and happy new year to you too! Glad that you liked the swap.
Comment: I love the package that you sent me. Thanks for connecting me with my heritage! I hope you aren't disappointed by what I sent. Would you like to do another swap with me so I can make up for it?
Comment: These are not "silly things on a string"......these are presents!!!!!!!!! What a beautiful swap, above all the scarf, I am wearing it. The ribbons are wonderful, did you make them yourself? Thank you for everything IN this swap and the stamps ON the swap envelope â™¥â™¥â™¥
Response: Happy you like the items I sent! Have a wonderful autumn! No, I did not make the ribbons, those are store-bought :)
Comment: I received your journal and the extra recipe, thanks! Your journal looks very interesting with all the recipes and I can't believe it has one for deep fried rattlesnake. I'm excited to add more to it. :)
Comment: Yeay! Your awesome package arrived. Thanks so much. I enjoyed reading your letter....now I know a little bit about your country! Cool. Thanks for the postcards and everything else in the envelope! Take care!
Response: I am happy it has finally arrived and that you like it. Thank you for the heart!

Thank you very much,i totally love everything and am glad to meet someone else into tango! Before i read your note, when i opened the stockings package,i instantly thought they'll be perfect for tango!everything is perfect,in size as well,i love it all!the scarf is really gorgeous and you outdid yourself!thank you very very much for everything!
Response: I am really really glad you like it and that it is correct size. It was supposed to be pretty stuff to wear, so I chose pretty stuff :) and I am relieved that it made it through both Czech and Romanian mail system :)
Comment: Your journal is simply beautiful, Magda. Of course I took a little browse through it and may have to pilfer some of the recipes people have left you. I will, absolutely, ensure that I add some Canadian dishes to your recipe journal. It will be my absolute pleasure!
Response: thank you :) I am looking forward to your recipes :)
Comment: Thank you so much for all the things you've sent! I really like it all. :) and I didn't know 'Dermacol' before. Also, the chocolate and teas are so yummy! In Passover I'll visit in Prague, so maybe I would able to find this choclate brand there. :) thank you again! You made my day.
Response: I am glad you like it (and that it arrived safe and sound) and hopefully will use the items. Have a wonderful trip to Prague! The chocolate can be bought in any supermarket over here, really :)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely postcard! I think your card got wet, I couldn't read much of the back at all and I have no idea how it actually got to me since my name and address was barely legible but it did! â™¥ Miracles in the postal service do happen! LOL
Response: And I always make sure I don't use my fountain pen, so that it is legible if it gets wet...Oh well... thanks for nice rating, though :) Here is what it said:
The building to the right of the Red Church is the Czech Supreme court. The one to the left is the Faculty of Social Studies (where I study). Opposite this building there is the Faculty of Arts (I used to study Slavonic languages here).
Comment: What a wonderful card - thank you so much! :oD I'm glad you enjoyed your year in Wisconsin, it's a beautiful state. When I was a kid, one of my great uncles had a dairy farm there, and I always enjoyed my visits very much. :o)
Comment: Oh Magda, what a WONDERFUL parcel of goodies I received from you today! You sent SO many nice things--too many--but I'm not complaining ;+) The postcards are so cute and the fridge magnet is already up. The stickers are so cute and that sweet ruler! I will use that EVERY DAY in my craft room! The memo pad is also truly adorable. The best of all, though, were all the pictures of Lentilka and hearing the story about how she came to be part of your household. When I was very young I had a black cat--"Sam"--and he looked nearly identical to Lentilka! You gave me a VERY happy mail day today!
Response: I am so glad you liked it! I was a bit worried that it got lost but it finally arrived, that's great to hear. Lentilka sends her best regards :)
Comment: The huge chocolate bar is amazing! I asked my friend if she'd like to try the chocolate bar since she's always interested in the weird and awesome mail I get and she said sure, she'd "check it out". D:
The teas are very interesting too, the honey black one looks delicious. I just moved so I'm not sure where my tea strainer went but when I find it and my kettle I will definitely try them, and in the meantime, chocolate. :D
The blue flower is also lovely and the long letter was appreciated.
Response: I glad that you liked the stuff I sent! Thank you for the heart.
Comment: Thank you so much for the fantastic bookmarks! I love them so much! My favorite one is the one you got from Berlin! I appreciate you taking the time to label each one & where it came from. So nice of you! I love the extra ones as well! Thank you again!
Response: I am very happy that you like them. (the Berlin one is my personal favourite as well!)
Comment: What a pretty birthday card! Thank you so much. And a Happy August Birthday to you, too.
And thank you for the bookmark. I can always use them since I normally am reading 2 or 3 books going at once!!
Comment: Thank you for such a nice swap! I especially loved the mango-strawberry tea! Here in France we also have the superstition about black cats bringing bad luck, as well as walking between a ladder and a wall, crazy isn't it? ^_^
Response: We don't have the one with the ladder here, you can walk under a ladder as much as you like in my country :o) Glad you liked the teas, mango-strawberry is my favourite as well!
