small treasures

I'm a fool for polka dots, but the Finnish postcrosser who sent this card had no way of knowing that. Dance, dance, dance. The sender also noted that a child care system was instituted in Finland in 1920 or thereabouts, making it one of the first European countries that "really wanted the best for kids".

The card at top was not the only one from Finland in yesterday's mail. This postcrosser went out of her way to find a tiger card, though she wrote there are no tigers in the middle of the forest where she (almost) lives. The card is an actual postcard of one Sandy S. made from a calendar. It felt like old friends seeing it again.
