I love sending mail to distant places almost as much as I love getting mail! This swap will be exactly like the first "Unusual Postcard" swap that I just held. If it keeps going well, I'll keep doing them once or twice a month.

Do you have (or can you get a hold of) some "unusual" postcards that aren't the typical scenery kind? Postcards of art, old posters, depicting old advertising, just plain funny, etc. If so, then this is the swap for you! The only thing I ask that you DON'T send would be postcards of openly political, religious, or obscene nature ~ since this is an international swap, we all have different views on these things & I don't want anyone to be offended.

You will have 3 partners & should send 1 postcard to each partner. NO FLAKERS PLEASE! Sign up for this swap by August 20th. Mail your postcards by August 30th.

Happy Swapping!

Should the postcards be sent in an envelope, or just mailed as they are?

I'd like my postcards written and stamped :)

All mine are sent without envelope and I hope the ones that come to me will be without envelope, too.

Hi! I guess it's up to the individual who's receiving it...how they'd like it sent.

I like mine written on, stamped & sent just as they are.

Thanks, Irene, for the beautiful postcard!

Great card from CarolinaRen! And I knew the expression on the card right away, but my boyfriend did not. It is British origin and my mother is quite an Anglophile :)

Thank you!

Thanks for the hilarious card, Zillah!

Received a truly unusual card today from Erin.... Try to imagine, if you will, a gal from the 50s in a bathing suit posing as Donut Queen...with a giant donut-man. Yeah. It's that unusual :) Thanks Erin for the chuckles! ~~Renae :)

Thanks to Erin for the great plant-person art card. Very nice, indeed!

Thank you for the lovely Picasso postcard, Cathy. I love art cards. Pox on the US postal service that insists on gluing those barcard thingies over the pictures!

The white stickers should peel off very easily. And they don't leave a residue. The orange spray-on marks under it are not so forgiving, unfortunately. I've yet to find something to remove them.

Thank you, Erin, for the cute card. It is very funny to see a banana as an octopus.

I received a postcard from Melanie today. Thanks so much. One day I will have to go to Ottawa just to visit the mint!:)

Hi, I'm leaving the same message in different swaps I'm in: "As I moved to a new house I didn't have internet for a while (too long I must say) and just after... we had a terrible storm last sunday and ran out internet connection :o( sooooo, today was a surprise since I wasn't expecting it until next week!!! I have to ask my swap partners to excuse me but I really didn't know how to sent my communication to confirm that I sent my items! Please Heather, Amy and Lisa if you read this (I'm also sending an e-mail if this thing stays on long enough) I just want to let you know that I already sent you my package. Sorry again.

Rec'd a very nice art card from Alison today...a great addition to my collection! Thanks! :)

I managed to figure out how to use the rating system :)
