Official cards: Coincidences, part II

What a beautiful serie of postcards! All received more or less in a row, and all different - fantastic!

Miten ihana korttisarja tämä onkaan! Kaikki saapuivat aika lailla perätysten, ja kaikki ovat erilaisia keskenään - huippua!

Sunflowers from South Korea

 
official card from South Korea

The sender of this card hoped it would bring a smile on my face - well, it did for sure. Just look at that group of kids in the front.

Have a relaxing weekend!

Tämän lähettäjä toivoi, että kortti saisi hymyn huulilleni - no, tehtävä suoritettu! Katsokaapa vaan tuota lapsikatrasta tuossa etualalla.

Ihanaa viikonloppua!

Childhood memories from NZ


 
official card from New Zealand
photos by: Dave Foster

My little brother used to have that very same bee toy as illustrated on this card.
I hope to have a chance to visit NZ someday.

Pikkuveljelläni oli lapsena tuo sama ampiaislelu, joka tästä kortista löytyy.
Toivottavasti pääsen vielä joskus käymään kiivimaassa.

Hihi, if the stores today just were like on this photo! Oh, nostalgy.

Heh, jospa kaupat olisivatkin vielä tällaisia kuin kuvassa...! Voi nostalgiaa.

Official cards: Beautiful views

These photos and illustrations do wake an urge to travel, don't they?

Nämä kuvat herättävät kyllä matkakuumeen, vai mitä olette mieltä?

Official cards: Coincidences, part I

I received all these cards on the same day - they all belong to the same series of cards and they were sent by four individual people. And yet they are all different!

Sain nämä kortit samana päivänä - kaikki kuuluvat samaan korttisarjaan ja ne tulivat neljältä eri ihmiseltä. Siitä huolimatta kaikki ovat keskenään erilaisia!

Official cards: Dick Bruna

I love Dick Bruna's illustrations; they are so simple yet filled with bright colors and cuteness. 
May he rest in peace.

Rakastan Dick Brunan kuvituksia; ne ovat samanaikaisesti niin yksinkertaisia, mutta silti supersuloisia ja täynnä kirkkaita värejä.
Rauha hänen muistolleen.
