Day 98 – Incoming/Outgoing


Today’s post features not one, but TWO postcards! The top one is an outgoing postcard, headed to China, and featuring a view of Petit Jean State Park, one of my favorite places.

The bottom postcard is an incoming card, from Mahilyow, Belarus. The writer states that most of these buildings were lost in WWII, but some are still visible. An interesting little bit of history from a place I’d previously never heard of. Very interesting!

Headed to: China

Day 88 – Space Pen!


It’s a bit unusual for me to use a non fountain pen, but I just got this 50th anniversary Space Pen so I had to put it to use! This Postcrossing card is headed to Germany, where I think half of the Postcrossing users live.

Do you use Postcrossing? If not, you should totally sign up! It’s a fun way to send and receive cards from all over the world. I’ve been a member for years and years, and have sent something like 110 cards. 

Pen: Fisher Space Pen 50th Anniversary

Day 86 – Fun With Flags


I’m a big fan of flags, always have been, so when we saw these Arkansas flag postcards at Dallas Market, we just had to get them for my local pen store. I’ve loved having them, cause they’re super handy to send to Postcrossing folks who like flags – which is exactly what I’m doing! This one is off to Latvia, and I’m pretty sure I’ve never sent one there before. Fun!

Also, if you have to use a “normal person” pen (postcards aren’t very fountain pen friendly), make it a good one!

Pen: Karas Kustoms brass/aluminum

Day 66 – Incoming Postcrossing, Outgoing Postcrossing

Maybe I’m a little bit weird (okay, I’m a lot weird, I’ll admit it), but I love always having a Postcrossing card “traveling”. One of my last cards arrived to Germany today, so of course I had to get another in the mail. 

On top is an incoming Postcrossing card from Bielefeld, Germany. On the bottom is an outgoing card, headed to Belgium. Fun stuff.

Pen: vintage Cross ballpoint from my grandparents (postcards aren’t very fountain pen friendly, sigh)

Off to: Herentals, Belgium
