Do you remember the “Sound of Music” starring Julie Andrews? One memorable song begins like this ” Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” ? We all have our favorites. Even postcrossing encourages “faves”.
This is how it works. You read the profile of the person you’re sending a postcard to. Sometimes I get lucky and they want a picture of the beach (which happens to be one of the reasons we moved to Wilmington, NC). Other times not so much. Though I try to keep a variety of postcards on hand, I’ve never been able to satisfy the more unusual requests: olympic games postcard or any postcards related to sports. Whenever I go out of town, I am always on the hunt for impressive ones or ones that fit generic likeability. Buying postcards is the topic for another blog.
According to my postcard wall, I have received 46 postcards that made it to my “faves”. Anyone who sends me a postcard is left to making that personal choice. If I only want postcards of kangaroos….I’d be lucky to get one and then I might never get the postcard of fish tails.
The postcard receiving the most “faves” (11) is from an event I accidentally attended. We often enjoy walking on Wrightsville Beach, NC. On this particular day there was a kite flying festival. Imagine our delight as we approached the beach and saw cows, octopi, and mermaids floating in the air.
And just if you were wondering what a “fish tail” postcard looks like:
This is not one of my favorite things but it gets high marks for being unique!
