Cool Violin :3

I saw this violin once, and I have thought that I would want this card to be a FAVORITE! But then, I said to myself that I should not because I am on a project.. where I am not supposed to add another card in my favorites, unless it's necessary.
Good thing this Russian Postcrosser sent me this card. I didn't know that it was a free card : )
Definitely, this would make it in my favorites.

Nadya(elpis) sent RU-369490... and received in 11 days. It travelled from Australia.

My first Violin Poscard!

Let me extend my deepest prayers for Japan.

What does John 8:12 says?

You're Missing God in All This

 (The Message Version)

Jumping Red Fox

A Jumping Red Fox

DE-856776 was sent by mymoira. It travelled 10,304 km or 6,403 miles for 13 days.

There was German text in it:
Ein Rotfuchs setzt zum Sprung auf sein Beutetier an, eine im Gras versteckte Maus. Der extrem aanpassungsfähige
 Kleinräuber ist fast auf der ganzen Erde heimisch und sprichwörtlich für seine Schläue.
Füchsinnen sorgen aufopfernd für den Nachwuchs
Using Google Translator:
A red fox is to jump on his prey, a mouse hidden in the grass. The extremely adaptable
Small spoiler is almost all over the world at home and literally for his shrewdness.
Foxes self-sacrificing care for the offspring.

Well, I pretty understand it, despite it's incorrect grammar. 

One thing that I forgot was to save the scanned part of the stamp.

Entrance at The Minneapolis Institute of the Arts

 This building was finished in 1974.

Sent by Opitz_97 for the Scratch and Dent Tag
The postcard doesn't look like it was scratched, nor dented.
Here's a part of her message:

"I know, it's not really scratched, or dented, but it has a water stain on the very top front of the card. 

I didn't even noticed that!! Haha!

Gardens at the Chateau of Vaux-le-Vicomte, Maincy, France

 from Yann Arthus-Bertrand's


Gardens at the Chateau of Vaux-le-Vicomte, Maincy, France (N 48"34' E 2"43')

The 'Turkish carpets' - decorative gardens of boxwood hedges - of the chateau of Vaux-le-Vicomte are the work of the landscape-architect Andre Le Notre (1613-1700). Designed for Nicolas Fouquet, Minister of France, the chateau was built in five years by approximately 18,000 workers. The garden, set off by several lakes and fountains, is 8,000 feet (2,500 m) long, which required the destruction of two hamlets. Fouquet invited the young king Louis XIV to visit in 1661. Offended by the splendour of his subject's abode, the king ordered an investigation of Fouquet and had him arrested. Le Notre, for his part, was assigned the direction of the royal parks and gardens. He designed other gardens 'a la francaise' for the chateaux of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Saint-Cloud and Fontainebleau, but his masterpiece remains the gardens of Versailles, the palace of the 'Sun King' himself. 

 This postcard was sent by Telenn as a thank you postcard for her sister, who is struggling for her exams.
It was one of my favorites, and wasn't really expecting that it was BIG!

It was favorited 6 times.

Postcard Swap with Mr. Lai

I had a postcard swap with Mr. Chen-Ho Lai, a 28 year old Ph.D candidate who is majoring in Materials Science and Engineering. We swapped three cards where he wrote lots of information!

 Caldonia (Astor Pictures, 1945)
Jazz and rhythm-and-blues star Louis Jordan periodically left the bandstand to make movies. Caldonia, an 18-minute extended short film, made excellent use of Jordan's outgoing, charismatic, and mildly manic personality. The film became enormously popular and is Jordan's most famous.

(Just had a research about Louis Jordan.. since I didn't know him)
