We've now received all of our postcards from the swap, and are pleased to have gotten cards from Germany, Australia, Cornwall, and Canada, as well as ones from our fellow Bay Staters.
Two of the cards were homemade--one from a two-year-old girl in Germany (we've already checked out and read her first book recommendation, and it's a good one):
and another from a family in Ontario (theirs is almost like a Magic Eye picture--if you look closely you can see the national animal of Canada):
And then there were the cards depicting lovely scenes from Victoria, Australia:
which only make us want to visit the UK and Australia even more than before.
My hat's off to Playing by the Book for organizing the swap. Hopefully the exchange will happen again, as I think we may have some budding postcard collectors here!
