I received two beautiful postcards today from Deanna, who lives in the state of Washington. The one to the left shows the Space Needle with the city all lit up behind it. And I love the one above that shows the lightening all around the Space Needle and over the city!

said that he had noticed that I like Moomin (Yes! I do!),
so he sent me this nice card. I love it!
Markku is such a thoughtful person to do this for me.
He also put some very nice Moomin stamps on the card!
I would like to know what the card says below the picture but,
unfortunately, I do not understand Finnish. Maybe someone
can translate it for me!
Thank you, Markku, for such a nice surprise in my mailbox!

This pretty card came today from my friend, Ulla, in Harjavalta, Finland. This is the second card I have received from her. She sent it to thank me for the San Antonio card I sent to her.
I like the bees buzzing around the flower on this card. I think the flower is Lupine because it looks much like our Texas bluebonnets--except for the color.
Thank you, Ulla, for another beautiful card!

This is a handmade greeting card made for me by my friend and penpal, Latisha Barker. She is from the Bahamas, although she now lives in Boston with her husband and two-year-old daughter, Kytara.
Latisha is a poetess and she wrote a poem inside the card. I will put it in another post.
Thank you, Latisha, for your poem and your artwork, and, especially, for your friendship. May God bless you!

Today I received two postcards.
The first one, above, is a 'Thank You' card from Sisko
in Ypaja, Finland.
I had sent her an official postcard so she sent me this
nice card of a fisherman (?) in a little boat. It looks like
there is a lighthouse or other small building
reflected in the water.
I like the nautical 'frame' around the picture too.
Sisko asks if we could be penpals and, of course,
I gladly agree.
Thank you for the 'Thank You' card, Sisko!

As you can see, there is a blanket of snow on the ground, which
