The only small problem being that I know owe everybody mail..... patience you guys...
I'm working on it.
From Miss Polly -- isn't this a great card?
I got "Moosed" as Charity wrote on the...well...moose....This guy was waiting on my doorstep and he flew in all the way from Alaska.

|St Petersburg, Russian Republic|
Church of the Spilt Blood
I can tell you I stopped right in my tracks when I saw this baby. One of the coolest buildings I've ever seen. Inside and out.
|It just seemed like there was beauty everywhere we looked on this trip. And we were looking UP a lot. The ceilings were amazing.|
Our hotel lobby. I loved the real candles all lit and up and glowing every night in the lobby and on the floors. I'm sure here in the USA there are some sort of fire laws against it but it was
Some baked goods to sample. And, sample we did.
These dolls were absolutely everywhere -- in all four countries we visited.
|And these hand painted eggs were very popular as well. These are real eggs but in Poland we bought hand painted wooden eggs.|
I figured the wooden eggs had a much better chance of making it home.
The New York Cafe in Budapest. I have never seen anything like this in New York.
I just couldn't get over these old, magnificent cafes....
|After walking miles every day I could also eat dessert without any guilt every day.|
|Prague, Czech Republic|
I hate to say it but there are bookstores and more bookstores in all these countries.
Made me more than a little jealous since we have lost so many here in SF.
|Prague, Czech Republic|
|OK, I may have had a little too much fun. I admit I didn't want to come back home. The cities were all lovely and the people kind and friendly.|
And there were flea markets and Postal Museums and a fabulous Stamp Museum and really cute post boxes all over.....I have stories to tell you.
But first I have to work on catching up with all the mail I owe everybody because as you all know
SEND GOOD MAIL --- GET GOOD MAIL
and I haven't gotten any the last few days since I owe everyone. Sigh.
So, what do you think, are you all going to book a flight to eastern Europe?
Not sure yet?
Wait till you see the Postal Pictures coming up soon.
And BTW, if not eastern Europe, who among you are coming in February for the fabulous
Ex Postal Facto
mail art event? I have heard a lot of rumors of people coming from near and far and I highly suggest it. This is something you won't want to miss. Check out the link on the sidebar.
Hope to see a lot of you in February in SF.
