Unexpected Thoughtfulness

During February when I participated in A Month of Letters, I sent out approximately 50 postcards.  Quite a few of these were to members of Postcrossing.  In March I started to receive my responses.  One of the first ones to arrive was this very thoughtful one from the Netherlands.  The sender had gone out of her way, and to extra expense to specially order this custom card for me.  She read from my profile that I have an affection for all things kiwi/New Zealand. 

This card is gorgeous.  Full colour and glossy.  It is from a company called

It was mailed with this special postage stamp.
I was so pleased by this card, that I contacted the sender and said that I would like to send her a special card.  I saw on her profile that she collected cards depicting horses.  I had one that I was saving for such an occasion.  Perfect.  I sent her the following card in return.
I bought this when I visited Calgary, Alberta several years ago.  If you like horses, the Calgary Stampede is certainly the place to be.  The world's largest outdoor show.
It wasn't long before another card landed in my mail box.  This is truly a magic card.
This card is also from .  Go to their website and enter the search term: magic. My family  had lots of discussions of how this card was made, but in the end, I decided that it truly was made with magic.
For more postal fun, be sure to visit with Beth at the Best Hearts are Crunchy for her weekly Postcard FriendShip Friday.


  1. I love these postcards, Heather! That last one is truly magical...Just beautiful!

    Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

  2. I like the Calgary card best because I like cards about local events.

  3. I agree with you and Beth, the last card with the horses and your name is magical! :) You're so lucky to receive such cards from senders who went the extra mile to really send a card with your preferred theme. I wish every sender is like them.


Leaving a comment is like sending a postcard; we'd love to hear from you.
