RECEIVED CARD #22.1: Blue and white porcelain

This is a “pottery” postcard from Catherine in China. I like it a lot and am wondering if there are more parts to it, since it looks like it’s been cut from a larger piece…

Well, it travelled a distance of 5489 miles (8834 km) in 53 days. And look at those stamps too! Thank you, Catherine 🙂

Summertime!!!

Solstice! It’s offically summer – in the northern hemisphere that is. YAY! In celebration of this wonderful fact, a beautiful sunset-picture for you guys. I took it a couple weeks ago when having dinner at the Back Bay Seafood Restaurant in Gulfport, Mississippi. Isn’t it pretty?!

Have a great start into your summer!

German Cowgirls

Spending time with my „American Family“ is always a blast. Just recently we visited a friend of theirs who owns cutting horses. For me and my American family’s current exchange student (a German horse-and-riding-addicted girl like me) it was the first time sitting on a western horse. It was so different from what we are used to. A true thrill ride!

Cutting horse “Woody” and me. Photocourtesy of my amazing American Dad 🙂 Thank you for always taking such great pictures!

And I think the following piece of art goes very well with this very unique experience. It’s my first linocut in about two years: A RODEO-cut.

I’ve sent one of the eleven prints I made to Viviana Cernjul in Argentina. Of course I created a very special envelope for it too. Take a look:

Hopefully I’ll be able to save some more time for blogging in the next couple of weeks: All the exciting things I’m seeing and experiencing during my stay in the US this year have kept me away from the blogosphere quite a lot recently.

P.S. I’ve also acquired a plethora of postcards from five different states already. Finding them is not really easy sometimes. I’ll let you know where I got mine in one of my upcoming posts. Promise : )

RECEIVED CARD #20

Another card from the Netherlands. This one was sent to me by Hetty from Kampen, which is 167 miles (268 miles) away from where I live. So it only took five days until it got dropped in my mailbox 🙂

I also sent a card back to Hetty, featuring a picture of the old townhall in my hometown. It’s one of my favourite buildings in the city.

SENT CARD #5: A little bit of summer


I love this postcard; it makes me think of summer…
I sent this sunny afternoon of a postcard to Fedor.
He lives in Siberia, so I thought he might enjoy some summer in his mailbox 🙂
