Postcard of the Week

Genuine Wood

which way’s up?

This little beauty was sent from our very last guests to visit while we lived in Portland. Find it fitting that it’s made from thin-sliced wood, considering Oregon’s timber roots. I also think it’s fitting that the image doesn’t seem to have a right-side-up… you know, “Keep Portland Weird” and all…?

My Golden Rolling Hills

I distinctly recall receiving this postcard while I was living in Sweden. When my host sister saw the postcard she proclaimed, “Oh those brown hills of California! – while driving, how I tire of those brown, dead hills.”

WHAT?! “Surely you mean, those golden, rolling hills of California…?” This is how I think of “my” state.

I Like You

wink, wink

This postcard covers all the bases: German, English, French and Spanish – “I like you!” But the fella is a bit creepy. If I’m translating the back of the card correctly, it’s Winkin’ Joe.

What’s in Your Cigar Box?

Evidence of a Deltiologist

del·ti·ol·o·gist ˌ(deltēˈäləjəst) noun – a person who collects postcards as a hobby.
That would be us!
