Postcards are not a thing of the past

OH how I LOVE receiving postcards, especially with a nice stamp!

Yesterday the mailman brought me just that- a beauty from Machu Picchu, Peru from my friends Jonathan and Laura-SCORE!

The stamp is of a Little Blue Heron. It comes on a plate of 4 different stamps. If you click on the link you will find it  at the bottom of the page.

I used to send postcards religiously, the past few years not as much but I still buy them as little keepsakes from our trips. Recently I got the BRILLIANT idea to turn them into magnets for my fridge. All you have to do is get a strip of magnets from the craft store, cut the magnets to the desired length, peel off the tape and stick the magnet to the back of the postcard and Tah DAAAAH!… new refrigerator art!

We bought these in Tequila, Mexico of the fields of blue weber agave from which tequila is distilled.

Did you know it takes 8-12 years for a field of agave to mature for harvest? No wonder quality tequila isn’t cheap!

When I was in London with my girlfriend we sent my husband this one.

Just bumming around in London!

I wrote, ” We are having the time of our lives running around London, now we’re off to a sale at Harrods!


Stephanie and Jan”

These we bought in Los Cabos, Mexico:

Everyday we saw whales from the balcony of our room and while lounging by the pool or beach.

If you want to see the whales in Cabo, they are in the waters usually from November until March.

Now that I think about it we have a box of old postcards I should dig up and share!

Where did you send your last postcard from, where did you receive for last post card from?

    I love postcards! I managed to send about 20 on my last trip, and whenever I’m abroad I try to send one to my family from each country. A friend visiting Germany sent me one last week, it was great getting something in the mail that wasn’t a bill. My favorite of all time is a wooden post card I picked up in Australia. Besides postcards, I’m a magnet fiend, too.

    I sometimes buy them to remember a place by- rarely send them anymore nor get them either. They are a bit a thing of the past as are letters.
