Postcards From My Hometown Update

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

For the first installment of a project I called "Postcards From My Hometown," I challenged my lovely readers to send postcards to two randomly selected people around the world. About 60 people signed up for this project. Thank you so much for contributing to the project's success! I received a few lovely cards myself (including an extra card or two from some thoughtful participants!) and wanted to share them and other images of postcards that bloggers sent to me... In this day of e-mail, Twitter and text messages, it's nice to receive a piece of handwritten snail mail.

from Stephanie in Romania of brealfeel

a vintage Montreal postcard from Reanna of Reanna Time

from Ambar in California of Ambar's Thoughts

a fashion forward postcard from Fashion Fille addressed to Fashionista 0921

a lovely postcard from The Anthology addressed to brealfeel

I loved sending mine off! I didn't hear anything about them being received though, so I hope they got there : /

I still haven't got any of mine except for your's (which, by the way, was gorgeous! getting thumbtacked to my inspiration board), either. :( It makes me sad when people flake! Or maybe, more optimistically, they're just taking a while to get here! I hope it's that.
