Postcard Friendship Friday - Moving Day Approaches

It's almost time to be moving daughter for her first year away from home for university.  A busy and exciting time. Son has been away for three years now and has broken us into what is expected of parents while their kids are off fulfilling their destiny (whatever that might turn out to be).  It will be an interesting time for all of us.

Daughter is not moving to  Wisconsin as shown in the postcard. She'll be less than an hour away.  I received this great card via Postcrossing.  Mapping was one of my subjects of studying while I attended the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario.  I love map cards.

Postcard Friendship Friday is hosted by Beth of the blog The Best Hearts are Crunchy.  All are invited to visit with her and add a link to their current postcard post.

Postcard Friendship Friday - Beautiful simplicity

"Colourful Giraffes" by Jeni Matheson 2013

Over the years, my sister has sent me a variety of postcards from IKEA and this is one of the lovliest.  I am volunteering at a running race series this week and these giraffe remind me of the runners mulling around just before the start of the race.  All that pent up energy just waiting to be unleased, but nothing really to do until the start.

I am volunteering at the Endurrun, which is a 8 day, 7 stage, 160 kilometre race series held in the areas of Conestogo and Waterloo, Ontario.

Postcard Friendship Friday - Sunflowers in Bloom

I was happy to receive this lovely card from Belarus.  Sunflowers are always so cheerful.  It is from , which I am interpreting as the Belarus Post Office. 

I don't know the common name for the bird, though the latin name is Cuculus canorus.

 Thanks to Beth at The Best Hearts are Crunchy for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday.

Postcard Friendship Friday - visual texture

i received this gorgeous card from a postcrosser in Australia.  She realized that I was a quilter and that I would appreciate the pattern.  It is from the box 100 Postcards by 10 Contemporary Pattern Designers  by Princeton Architectural Press. This particular card is by Rachel Coney, 2009 - Leanne Shapton    After receiving this card, I want the entire box to play with. 

On the left is the Princess Parrot and on the middle stamp, Purple Crowned Lorikeet.  On the right is Waratah.
