China - 27th of january 2011

I like surprises. So was this card. It was on it's way from Shanghai for over 300 days! Almost a year. Luckily I still got it. :) It is showing the Taipingqiao Green Belt.

The stamps are very nice, too. I like the water in the earth. :)

Plus it seems like we have another reader! Welcome, Saami! :)

I got an award? Woah!

I just read that I got an award from Tanuki at Starshine Whirls Make My Head Spin. I was totally not prepared but at the same time I really like the idea! :D

And now I apparently have to share 5 guilty pleasures. Oh my gosh. This is getting more private here than expected now :D

1. Steampunk
I'm totally freaking out about this. Steampunk is so crazy and so cool! I'm more or less planing on doing my own costume or so sometime soon-ish. I hope.

2. Marabou-Polka
Everybody who ever tasted it knows what I mean!

3. Going to IKEA
This Swedish furniture chain really rocks and it's more or less like a social event to go there... Swedish people don't understand why we Germans do so... :D

4. Buying books
I can't help it. I just do, no matter how many unread ones I got.

5. Writing
Not only blogging, but also penpalling, postcard writing and... writing-writing.

So now I should give this award on...

So it goes to Deborah from Addicted to mail (and other cool stuff). She is having a really cute blog and I enjoy reading it.
I think it wouldn't work to give Tanuki one back because I got it from her, right? :) Otherwise she'd get one, too! :D

Italy - 5th of january 2011

My first postdcrossing card of the year is from Italy. It's an advertisement to an exhibition in Forlì.

And this stamp that came along with it is so cute!

And I'm a bit pissed on the German Post. They raised their prices again. -.- Not nice for mail loving people here...
