Happy birthday to my wife today. Here’s a postcard I sent her awhile ago, representing her Chinese zodiac symbol.
Here’s the backside:
“From one dog to another, I miss my lady! (I know what you thought I was going to say!) Miss you so much.”
Last month, my family and I visited Algonquin Provincial Park for a few days. It’s the largest park in Ontario and the oldest provincial park in Canada. It’s an amazingly beautiful place and normally a great place to see wildlife.
We didn’t see any moose this trip (although everyone else we were with did). So instead we found this stationery alternative:
We loved it, so of course we mailed it to our cat right away from the park.
Algonquin had lots of great postcards, including more along this lines. I’ll feature over the next few weeks. But this one was our favourite, naturally!
Here’s a postcard from my trip this past winter to Florida. It is a delightful example of the marvels that photo editting software has brought to postcards!
It does certainly look like where the fun is indeed! I sure wish I was frolicking thusly in tropical seas!
Today is Shark Awareness Day, so here’s a postcard in honour of the alpha predators of the sea that I got from my January trip to Florida:
I love postcards that have explain something of the local sites, history, or culture. Text-heavy postcards aren’t the most visually appealing of postcards – but this one is educational and visually appealing.
I’m surprised that a great white shark’s tooth isn’t significantly larger than the other sharks. See you do learn something from postcards!
I like postcards that are odd shapes – officially these postcards are known as die cut. This recent find from my Florida trip below, however, gives new meaning to the term die cut!
Bahamas turned out to be a goldmine of good postcards – although it took me some sleuthing.
The way this postcard is framed is looks like their is ocean vortex sucking these poor people and dolphins to their watery grave:
Here’s another find from my recent time in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
This postcard has some remarkably bad photoshopping work prominently on display.
