Funniest/Sweetest/Panorama

There are so many type of postcards out there, I have many from my friends here at Family Corner from their holidays and local areas.
You don't have to be a regular postcard swapper here as postcards are sent by friends and family and you must have a favourite to.

Is there a funniest postcard you have rec'd or one you found really sweet and loved or is there a postcard you rec'd that the view just took your breath away?

Which country or state did this card come from and what about this postcard makes you favour that one?

Geez Kathy, this is hard ! I have so many cards from everywhere that I can't name a favorite one. Not only from all my postcard buddies on FC but have some from Postcrossing.com that are very pretty.

I sent one to my kids that showed a winter scene & a beach scene.. the winter scene says "YOU" & the beach scene says "ME". I sent it while they were in the midst of a snow storm up in Ohio. Couldn't help it .. I had to rub it in!

I love the quirky I have a couple with really nice sayings. 1 is a 1950's (?) lady lying in bed saying, "I dreamed my whole house was clean". I have a beautify one of the Titanic. A scenery one is a hard one to pick, so many beautiful spots in the world to visit.

You're so right Kathy. There are so many beautiful places in this world that it would be hard to choose a favorite. The postcards let me see places I'll never be able to visit in my lifetime and I have made some wonderful friends through swapping the postcards.

I have two linticular (sp?) pcs. One is of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the other is of the Last Supper. They were my mother's so are special. I have lots and lots of beautiful scenery pcs from my friends at FC so can't pick just one of those.

Brazil postcards

Hello,

We are new to Family Corner and are studying Brazil and would love to have a postcard sent to us from there. We are having a hard time finding out how to do this as we are new to postcard swapping. Would be happy to send an Alaska card in return.

Thanks so much for pointing us in the right direction!

Hi Alaska & welcome to FC. I'm Minny & I live in Florida. If you'd like a postcard from here, please PM me your mailing info. Here's the link for the postcard swap. We don't have anyone from Brazil but maybe someone would know someone that could help you.
