This sweet, sweet altered card is from a Brazilian postcrosser. Hard to go wrong with such darling puppies.
A Dutch postcrosser sent this funny 'party animal'. She wrote that the message printed in Dutch reads, "I hope this card reaches you on time."
Thanks to both for taking the time!

No time to upload cards but luckily I've received a cache of wonderful stamps. The Japanese stamps at bottom were on a cute Hello, Kitty card issued by Japan Post. The lovely German stamps were on a card from Worms, the oldest city in Germany. The yummy Swedish stamps were on an Ikea postcard. Yes, all were wonderful but I saved the best for last: from Taiwan a super, super Chinese opera stamp. The basket stamp too is pretty cool.

A Spanish postcrosser sketched his double bass on the back of a card showing his favorite beach, in Torremolinos.
A Korean postcrosser described a trip she had made to Andong, famous for its carved masks, then showed what one looked like.
A friend in Kyoto sent a card about a recent trip she and her husband made to Bhutan, gently commenting on the severe arthritis she has been fighting much of her life.
Three of the postcards that came in yesterday's mail had little sketches on the reverse side. My thanks to one and all for making it a wonderful day!

Lynn Berkowitz sent this card from a visit to the Eames Case Study House #8 in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago. Charles Eames took the photo of his wife Ray opening Christmas presents at the house, which was once home to the famous designing couple.

I came home from a short trip to this card from an 18-year-old postcrosser in Singapore. She altered a card put out by the new National Museum there, which was inviting people to visit "for some inspiration on living monumentally." Thanks, Gwen, for sharing your ideas.

This stamp from Lithuania features Steponas Darius and Stasys Gironas, Lithuanian emigrants to the US, and their plane, the Lituanica. In 1933 Darius and Gironas died during a gallant attempt at a non-stop flight from New York to Kaunas, Lithuania. Their plane went down just short of its destination.
These Japanese stamps show off autumn foliage in Akita prefecture.
