Kocevje, Slovenija

Received this postcard from Lana, a 10 year old girl from Slovenia. This was in participation of Vesna74's postcard swap with her students. I really enjoyed projects like this. I remember joining one from the Netherlands, and the one that I got goes by the name of Tom.

I like the stamp in the left... " I FEEL SLOVENIA.

If I am not mistaken, perhaps this is my first postcard from Slovenia. I have received a letter from this country before. Going to edit this if this is really the first one that I have received.

Maryland State Map

Ooh, another state map here! Mom and I are currently collecting state maps sent from the state itself. I think this one is from her swapping friend, Tracey (ArtTeachToBe). What a nice person : )

Ate Winnie (salzig_ei/winn_dogg) sent this very adorable Panda PC! I have always loved them when I was a kid, and up until today. Her message was very inspiring. She's one of the sweetest postcrossers I have ever known.

Aphrodisium faldermannii yuagii
 About these stamps..
these beetles are either yellow-brown or green. Those with yellow-brown coloration have glossy nota, with a black stripe running down the middle, and they have black legs and yellow tarsi. Those with green coloration have inconspicuous lengthwise stripes on their green elytra. The species is found in mixed forests between 1,500 and 2,000 meters above sea level. Because it emits a musky smell, it is also called the “musk long-horned beetle” in Chinese. Source

Desert Wildflowers

Few inhabitants of canyon country are as striking as Indian paintbrush. The brilliant scarlet to orange color is produced by bracts and sepals rather than actual petals. The plants are from 4 to 12 inches tall, growing in sandy or gravelly soils or crevices in much of western North America. Flowering from March to June, the showy colors help attract pollinators as well as photographers.

Received this from a Postcard Pal from France.

Marianne stamps do have a different texture.
