Comment: I don't know, manders. This doesn't look like 25 flakes. It looks like a buttload of everything! LOL And the UFO washi is a scream!! As for corn, we dip it in boiling water to take the chill off. Practically raw would be the best description. ;-)
Response: 😁 Making a good effort to destash. I love that tape but its being vertical makes it hard to place. I'm a corn snob now - if it's not fresh off the field...

Comment: You shoulda seen me trying to get that rabbit washi off the envelope. LOL I'm glad no one was watching or I'd be in a straight jacket! You're so clever with your swaps, I wanna be just like you. I will be taping my cellos closed, rather than using the sticky going forward. And I LOVE everything you sent, even Piyokomame, which I'll never understand as I loath birds almost as much as cats. Thanks for the blind goodies, ya done good!
Response: You're welcome. Send me a photo of the bunny washi tape and I'll send you samples. I just replenished my stash of gift cards and now some hotel room keys. And that idea of taping cellos closed comes from Rani.

Comment: Hi Meredith! Love the pc and please thank your nephew for his service! Our oldest son went to college through the ROTC program and did his explosive ordnance training in Virginia - we loved attending his graduation there! Thankfully he never had to go into combat and I can only imagine the things your nephew has seen/had to do with three tours in Afghanistan! Again my thanks to him for his service to our country! Wishing you and yours all the best and please stay safe! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)
Response: I'm glad you like the postcard. In his first tour, as 2LT, he had patrols where he'd read because he couldn't socialize. I sent him a Kindle after asking a question on Amazon about how it'd work in those conditions. Lots of ex mil said great! Tom was thrilled because he was running out of reading material. Now he always has an iPad at hand.

You have a way with words. So I hope you’ve written down your experiences, perspective & firsthand accounts, if not in op-ed pieces, then in a journal or similar. Take care 🤗
Response: You're welcome! I'm happy when what I send is your happy mail. I started journals that languish, probably because I think no one will read them and people do read my letters and postcards.

Comment: As usual you've spoiled me! It's very sweet of you to match stickers to my random likes. :) I have a magnet board next to my desk where I display my favorite cards/postcards/drawings I get in swaps, and your contributions are taking up a good percentage of it now. :) I adore this weird little postcard! Also, french toast from homemade bread?!! That needs to happen here. I see baking in my future.
Response: No drawings from me! I learned years ago that I can't draw and then recently that hand/eye coordination - like catching a ball and drawing - never developed because I didn't get glasses until I was 9 and hand/eye coordination and peripheral vision develop before age 5. I'm glad you like the big sticker flakes.

Comment: I had already checked my mail for the day but I remembered that Informed Delivery said I was receiving a package too. I checked tracking and they delivered it after 5pm, which is rare that they didn't just drop it off during my usual mail delivery time. Anyways thank you for such a big package! The lettersets you sent, I don't think I have ever seen them before! And I was an avid letterset collector at one point. Thank you so much for such an amazing swap.
Response: You are so welcome! I had fun putting it together just for you. I happened to have that lovely cardboard mailer from an Etsy order for postcards and it was perfect for sending letter sets. So I did!

Comment: DOTS...LOL...this swap was so much fun! Your envelope was decorated so cute. I actually Saved most of the washi off the envelope onto a card to use in my journal. I enjoyed your letter very much. I like kawaii from different places and it doesn't have to be "branded". Thank you for everything. Your pizza sounds delicious. I like paneer and tikka AND most all Indian foods. I like FOOD period...ahahaha.... My family has grown to enjoy my experiments in cooking after watching Youtube videos. :) Thanks again...take care :)

Comment: Thank you so much for being my first ever received swap on here, Meredith!! It was such a joy to see your letter in my mailbox! I especially adore the washi and fuzzy panda sticker that adorned the envelope (: The cute little my little twin stars baggie was an unexpected joy, along with the variety of sticker flakes! I don't think I own any of the packs of the stickers you sent me so thank you so much for expanding my collection! And your letter! It was really cool to read about how you got into kawaii, you're a really great story teller! I can't wait to hear more from you if we ever swap again (: Much love and well wishes <3

Comment: Thank you so much for the spring washi treats. The washi on your envelope was divine, too. I'm so ready for spring. There are lots of Bradford pears and redbuds abloom, but I'm still waiting for the dogwoods. Stay safe!
Response: You're so welcome. I have all too many rolls of washi tape and I love sharing. I have tiny heuchara leaves; a few scilla in bloom, heralding a carpet in the next week; crocuses in bloom; and tulips are almost 6 inches high. No sign of daffodils. I planted a Minnesota redbud last year and can't wait to see what that does. I'm looking forward to my many hellebore blooming soon.

Cannot believe that you had an issue with your electricity we well! Glad that you got yours resolved and settled. Mine is still not settled. He has quit taking the water for sure because we caught him stealing it and it appears he has replumbed his house. We have not found the pipe yet nad are going to bring in a backhoe and dig up the yard it appears now to find it! His brothers built the house and put that pipe somewhere so no one would find it. Ive overpaid on water bills and feel he should have to pay the money back. I think my neighbor is frightened because he knows we know he has been taking our water. So this is not resolved yet and I need to find the pipe! Thanks for letting me know that you have been there too! I dont feel so alone. People have no idea how it can be with people stealing from their neighbors and thinking they can get away with it! Have a wonderful holiday this weekend! We celebrate Labor Day here. You might not there! It is the end of summer in most years but due to Covid 19 everything is just off! Bye for now!
Response: You're welcome for the postcard. I feel your pain! It took months to resolve the electricity problem and I felt sorry for the woman who didn't realize it was happening. She had a big bill she couldn't afford.

Comment: Hi Meredith! Thank you ever so much for your wonderful note and wonderful PC's! I enjoyed looking through all & your dream vacation stamps! Well, I hope it all turns out great for you, with the landscaping goings on there. I didn't know there was such a thing as a dessert tester in book club. But sounds like fun to me. As I love to bake. But only in the cooler months though. Because our summers here are brutal, heat wave after heat wave, ugh! Don't dare use our AC's. As the electric bill would be so dang high & I'm talking $150 something for 1 month. We just can't afford that, since we ( my husband & I are on SSD. Well, Have loads of fun baking.
Response: You're welcome. We only turn on the oven when it's cool outside - and to make dessert for bookclub. We turn on the AC when temps are above 90, not so often here in MN but more often now with global warming. And my spouse keeps the thermostat at 85° so it only takes the edge off the heat. Today it's breezy and cool after thunderstorms last night.

Comment: Thanks for the great wanderlust postcards, Meredith. I too am yearning for my first trip to Africa. I've been having dreams about Zanzibar, even though I've never been there. And my last trip to Japan was even before yours, but I always think I'll get back there to see more of it. I highly recommend the road trip to Alaska. I did it in the 70's when much of the Al-Can Highway was still unpaved, camping out each night. The friend I invited to come along never left Alaska & he & his wife send me a ticket every few years to come up for more exploring. It's stunningly gorgeous. Nowadays my biggest adventure is a trip out to my curbside mailbox!
Response: Thank you for joining my swap. I'm glad you share the spirit of the swap. Maybe, when Canada is open again, I can make a road trip north to Winnipeg and west on the Trans-Canada Highway, then north to Alaska.

Comment: Love, love, love the cards. Thank you for great choices. I too, have a fear of not being able to fulfill a swap theme. I have had swaps lost in the mail and no replacement cards. Bummer!
Response: You're welcome. I hadn't thought about that getting lost in the mail - it rarely happens to me.

Life has been so rough lately (I know it is for everybody) but this really, really brought a smile to my face and warms my heart so very much.

Response: You're welcome. Only so much one can say on a postcard. My dad was one of the original scientists at JPL. When he was in graduate school, DOD offered him a research position or they would draft him.

Comment: Gorgeous envie and wonderful cards, Meredith. Thank you so much. Having just poured the price of a new car into my mouth for serious dental work I can mostly ooh & aah over boxed sets such as those from which you culled the cards you sent. So it's great to get cards from someone with similar tastes. I did splurge on the Ex Libris set though & the card you sent is one of my favorites. Now I can send one & keep one! Hope you do go the way of native landscaping. As a long time member of a native plant society and the former co-owner of a native plant nursery I'm a bit of a zealot.
Response: You're welcome. Last night I started compiling my plant list, including invasive plants. Because we are in an old neighborhood we have landscaping plants like honeysuckle shrubs now classified as invasive.

Comment: Thank you very much for your note and postcards. I’ll have to check out that baking website as I can’t send what I bake into work with my husband now! Downsized recipes would be great! It is so cold here still - scraping my car windows even this morning! Then a huge turnaround tomorrow when Spring finally shows up! I would’ve been in Italy and Switzerland this week. Maybe next year lol! Have tickets for Tokyo late fall. Here’s hoping! I hope you can take your trips too!! xxx
Response: You're welcome. That website helped me downsize some recipes. Now I'm testing homemade mug cake mixes to send in a box to my in-laws because that's the closest I'll get to baking for them.

I take hiking/camping trips up there several times a year!! Thank you for all my fun goodies!!

Comment: Thank you so much for the 3 awesome PC's for the swap based on books. I so love them! Like you, I get most of my PC's from Amazon. I wish I had looked more closely at the one PC selection I ordered. I didn't realize till too late, the kitty cat PC's I ordered 3 weeks ago, were international. I still haven't gotten them & they keep saying, I won't get them till May 22nd through June 15th, ugh ! So, I had to go & order other kitty cat PC's, so I could have them trade. Which I got those last week. Ok, Time to stop jabbering, lol ! Take care.
Response: You're welcome. Yesterday I received a box of postcards I preordered on April 9th. I'm still waiting for a box I ordered in March because the publisher keeps pushing out the publication date. I'm glad I can get them. An independent bookstore where I buy boxes of postcards is closed now, for the duration.

Comment: Always a pleasure to get mail from you, Meredith, & this swap was no exception. Enjoyed your note (on the intriguing art card) as well as your thoughtful selection of postcards. Two (count 'em 2) Highwaymen cards! Be still my heart. I've met all the surviving members of the group. They're still painting, but their current output lacks the charm of the the stuff they did when they were hungrier. Love the Steinberg too & the wonderful B&W photo at El Morocco. And while I'm envious of your getting to experience the Cirque du Soleil show, I'm delighted that you shared the cool Beatles letter paper with me. Thanks for everything, It was a special swap.

I'm glad your husband is done with his surgery. I had exactly the same thing. Truly. 5 hrs under the knife, 27 gallstones in my bile duct. The surgeon said he never saw so many. A couple of weeks later, another woman came in with 24 stones in her bile duct. Very unusual. I wish him a speedy recovery. Joy

Comment: Thanks for the great selection of post cards ànd note. Looking at your profile I could see why Minnesota would seem a bit grim, especially this winter. We have just had a few days of summer here 20c in the day -2 at night. Let's hope it's not the only summer we will have this year. Downside is that I've never had hay fever in February before! I find many tourist cards a bit twee. Much of Scotland is very beautiful but there is a limit to the number of cards showing heather, kilts and Highland cows you want in your collection! Take care, best wishes

I grew up in the country and your description of watching the corn grow took me back to that. I miss it. I know a lot of people would think "You miss watching corn grow???" lol But it's the whole atmosphere of being close to nature. Not that I'm in the city now or anything, but it's a suburban subdivision, so sometimes it feels a bit crowded to me. Anyway, thank you for the letter and all the adorable flakes. I super love the penguins with seals, etc. :)

Comment: Wow Meredith, thank you for taking me down memory lane with the interesting farm woman postcard you sent to me. When I was little child, both my father's brothers had farms. Yes, they did have dairy cows, milked, churned their own butter, boiled their own milk. They also grew their own fruits, veggies. Amazing. Hope your Spring will be arriving soon.
Response: You're welcome. My father grew up on a dairy farm and I visited my grandparents there when I was growing up. Dad and his only sib, my aunt didn't stay on the farm.

Comment: Always a treat to get a swap from you, Meredith. Such an interesting selection of vintage cards. The one that intrigued me the most was the one from the amateur radio operators, since I've spent some time sailing in that remote area of the Caribbean. No snow here, but a few days of temps in the 30's was tough in my un-heated cottage. Hope you are managing to stay warm in your far colder weather in MN. Thank you for a great swap & for sharing the wonderful 10 rupee note. And yes, I'd be delighted to have more anytime you want to include any in future swaps. Hugs...
Response: I'm delighted that you're delighted! A wool sweater, wool socks, and a wool blanket will help you through those freezing temps better than fleece. Friends who live in Israel without heat do this. When I go in the winter I always take along a wool sweater.

Also saw LOVE in Las Vegas & that show was spectacular! Now, on to your postcards - I have not been to London nor Cape Cod, so thank you so much for them! I have been to Costa Rica, but didn't get any postcards when we were there, so thanks so much for that one! I think it's so funny when there is an international swap, I often get someone from nearby! Hello, neighbor! If you are ever in need of a break on your way to Chicago, take a turn at Janesville; we are about 21 miles from I-90. We have a grown daughter in SF, she just got back from a trip to Thailand. Our son is married with two small boys; they live in Indiana; we'll see them after Christmas.

Comment: A beautiful card, Meredith! I've been to NYC twice with my daughter in 2008 and 2010. I hope to get there at least ONE more time--I love that city---based just on those two visits so I'm not an expert, but next time I am determined to see the Botanical Gardens and the Cloisters. We'll need to find a new hotel location closer to both if possible--previously we were in December and at the Warwick in mid-town. I'd also like an entire day just to explore the library and to see one of the art museums, maybe the MO-MART? Thanks for a great swap! Have a wonderful Christmas and a splendid new year--maybe getting out of the suburbs??
Response: Airbnb is the best way to find lodging in NYC, especially if you want to stay in the Bronx. Find a place located near a subway station rather than driving. PM me when you're ready to go if you'd like help making plans. I've lived and worked there, and we visited often when I was growing up.

Comment: Nice to see your cheery Yellow Submarine envie in my stack of post-Irma incoming. Thank you for the generous selection of PCs, though I can only comment on the 2 great linen ones. The others succumbed to the outer rain bands of the hurricane & all stuck together. I was dumbfounded to find a stack of dirty wet mail in my mailbox when I returned from evacuation. Neither snow nor rain nor hurricanes I guess...This is in no way meant as a plea for a re-send. You went over and above in your mailing & I'm just venting at the stupidity of my local PO. The county emergency app even assured me that mail delivery was curtailed for the duration. As you can probably tell, hurricane stress has taken a toll on me & I'm still frazzled. Enjoyed your nice note, BTW.
Response: I'm glad the linen ones - your favorites - made it through the heavy weather. Let me know if there's *anything* I can do to help, e.g., a care package.

Response: I love those vintage images. They give me a feel of the continuity of the fair. I don't get quite the same feeling when I volunteer for a day at a mini donut booth, with those donut-making robots!

Comment: Thanks so much for all the wonderful PCs for this swap! I really liked them all but the turtle was just beautiful and the cabbage was so unique. I had my windows replaced last year - mine were original back to 1969 so there was a desperate need. . . I live in a townhouse so there was one picture window, a bay window and 10 single windows so it wasn't bad although the day was chilly so I sat on my couch wrapped in a blanket watching TV all day. I'm so glad I did it and it certainly has made a difference in my electric bill during the summer when I run the A/C all the time. Good luck with your repairs. . . it is always a pain to have work done in the home. Thanks again for the great selection of PCs ~~

Response: Was your visit to MOA tourism? Local people told me there were charter flights from Tokyo to visit the mall as well as busloads from all over. It's calmer now and, sadly, Sanrio went out of business.

It is a tough one! I've been looking at them all a while now, and I feel like I'm ready to take a shot at it! Is the theme, bubbles and balloons? (Speech Bubbles)
Response: You're welcome. Your answer is 95% correct. Speech bubbles represent thought, with bubbles between the words and the head. Speech balloons like the ones I selected represent words spoken. I know this because I work with graphic designers on website design.

My neck of the woods is no where near as exciting as yours, not that I necessarily call what happened as exciting, but I will say in some respects its good that people are thinking about hot issues like race and equality. The circumstances that brought it into focus aren't good of course, but the issue does need to be addressed.
Response: You're welcome. There is lots of regret here about what happened and discussions about what to do. For one thing, our city doesn't have oversight of the police department and more scrutiny is the minimum for now.

I haven't read any of Marion Nestle's books yet but I definitely will. I took a Food Systems and Agriculture class last semester and I read "The American Way of Eating" by Tracie McMillan. It's about her experience working in different parts of the food system from the fields to Walmart. The book is extremely honest and very eye opening to me. Also, have fun in NYC :)

Comment: Merdeith, thank you for the postcard and the tale of her. It is interesting I had this postcard and sent it off in one of the swaps, maybe it was to you. Well, it has returned to me and now it will be forever filed in with the other postcards. Shirley
Response: You're welcome. At some point, several years ago, I bought the Pomegranate bargain box of postcards - such a deal! Since I was receiving many in swaps, I put the best like this one away to use later. (About half the box went to Goodwill.) Now it's later and they came out of storage.

Comment: Hi Meredith! I visited Dachau several years ago and it was a very sad experience. I was quite young, so I don't think I was able to feel wholly the leftover energy there, but nonetheless it left such an impact on me. Thank you for the card reminding me of that time. Have a wonderful week. xo

I visited a temple in Tokyo that has rows of statues in memory of babies who died. In any case, the Buddhist temples there are amazing.

Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything has a simple recipe to start your own - I would have done that. His recipes are reliable. (My first source for cookbooks is the library.)

Comment: Thank you for the set of themed postcards -- great idea! I really like the Swan Lake and the Vogue ones, but all are interesting. I appreciate the extra too. Great swapping with you! <3<3<3
Response: You're welcome. It's easier for me to choose a set of postcards with a theme than it is to make a random selection. I look forward to receiving from you sometime.

Comment: apologies for rating so late - Thank you for the wonderful envelope of goodies for the trade - and for the care taken so that the stamp arrives intact :) ♥
Response: You're welcome. Once Kate suggested a manual cancellation then putting it into another envelope, it was easy to get it right. Thank goodness for friendly post office people.

Comment: Thank you Meredith! This is my first little file folder :) --- This was SO much fun!
Response: You're welcome. I have several little folders like that and use them quite a bit to keep track of all sorts of little pieces of paper. Yes, filling all those envelopes was fun.

Comment: Hi Meredith! Thank you, the postcards arrived today! I am a fan of puffins and crossword puzzles, so you chose the perfect one for me to keep! I will be sure to send the Route 66 couple on their way in the next round! Take care, Karen
Response: Hi Karen. You're welcome. I have a sheet of the puffin postage stamps and rarely use them. I thought you ought to receive one. And the extra postcard - how could I not send that one to you?

Comment: Loved your interpretation of the letter O!! An ONION! So awesome and I am a big fan of the Cavallini brand cards. Thank you.
Response: You're welcome. I had fun with this one, looking for an O that wasn't an owl. Olive maybe? None of those in my stacks...

Comment: Thanks much for the nice cards! The Roosevelt one is especially appreciated. Love that strawberry washi tape-I just love the stuff and have 9 rolls of it now. Wanted to ask you--where did you get the Alice in Wonderland stationery? My Mom-in-law is named Alice and she would just love it! I'm always on the look-out for things like that for her.
Response: You're welcome. I selected the Hyde Park card after I read your profile. It's a great place to visit. Alice is a popular kawaii theme - google "Alice in Wonderland kawaii" and you will see more than a little, e.g., http://www.modes4u.com/japanese/Alice+in+Wonderland
