Postcard from Finland

4 05 2010

Finland’s more than flipping brill rally drivers and hockey, y’know. It also houses this beauty which at first made me think I’d been Postcrossed by a Greek, if you will. According to its flipside notation, this ‘card shows the Parliament House National museum. And it came with the kind of stamp that makes Brits suspicious of those funny little Europeans [sadly not scanned]. Love!

I’ve received an awful lot of Postcrossings in my absence from this blog and I really must do them justice with a good old scanning. Anyway, this old boy turned up in the post just a couple of days ago. It’s always nice to get Finnish postcards because they seem like the most enthusiastic of Postcrossers for some reason.





White horses postcard to Finland

Oh dear, this poor blog is looking very neglected. Well, sorry about that – I’ve had new commitments of late, which hasn’t allowed much time for frivolities. This weekend I’ll try my darnedest to scan like never before and be all up to date in a jiffy. This is a postcard I sent a while ago showing four chalk horses visible on various English landscapes. My favourite will always be the top left-hand creation found in Uffington. It has an amazing simplicity which proves very effective on the eye. I’m an art critic!
