Postcards

Tourist Nature Animals Vintage

I love all postcards, but I really enjoy ones that show something about where you are from. I love to travel, but can't get everywhere, so I live vicariously through my postcards.

States I am missing in my collection:

Delaware Kansas Maryland North Dakota Pennsylvania West Virginia Wyoming

Comment: Amy, I loved the envelope and letter! Such pretty stationery. I'm generally not super into books set during the World Wars, but if historical fiction isn't usually your go-to and these got you onboard, I'll have to check them out! My mother -loves- war movies and books, so I'll pass the recs on to her as well (assuming she's not already read them too, haha). Thank you again for the lovely letter! Have a wonderful day! ☆Raynor

Comment: Thank you for the pc and all the extra pcs. So you have been to my neck of the woods. IT makes it a small world. Did you see they are changing the name of Edinboro university to Penn West. I guess a couple of universities are merging. It will always be IUP. Have a great day!

Comment: Thanks for the postcard! I actually never studied the Civil War. It was at the end of the course in HS & college & we never got there. Of course in Richmond, you’d think the South won with all the statues to CW leaders. Maybe some of them (Lee?) will be relocated to Manasas battlefield. It would be nice to see Lee on Traveler up close.
