This is the last postcard, received in 2010, and the first one from Poland. It shows Polish town Lochow. It is a small town, I could not find a lot about it in Wikipedia, just this.
Łochów is a town in the Mazowieckie voivodship, in the Węgrowskim district, the seat of the urban-rural gmina Łochów. In the years 1975-1998 the city administratively belonged to the Siedlce Voivodeship. According to data from 31 December 2005, the city had 6,654 inhabitants. Łochów is located in the Valley of the Lower Western Bug on Liwiec, adjacent to the large Łochowskie forest.
And a stamp shows one of Polish manor houses. This one is called "Dwor w Janowcu k. Pulaw" (Manor in Janowiec near Puławy).

 A card from Inga from Germany. She said it looked almost the same in Germany the day she sent this card (2 weeks before Christmas). Very nice winter landscape, I always liked winters like that - snowy, frosty and with sun.

I wish you happy holidays! :)


 It's an unofficial card, second one from Melissa,  from Arizona desert. It's a beautiiful hummingbird, the smallest bird, which looks like a bee, so small it is.

And stamps with American flag.

This card came after a long period of 'silence'. It is from Peggy, from Frederick (it is on this map near the 'apple').
Some facts from the card. Maryland. Nickname: Old Line State. Area in Square Miles: 12,327. Entered in Union: April 28, 1788.


Leroy Smith's Orchestra

A black-and-white postcard from Sarah from the USA. Beginning of the 20th century, Detroit, Ragtime and the Jazz Age.

Leroy Smith and his Orchestra were an African-American band that obviously modeled itself after the Paul Whiteman Orchestra and his symphonic Jazz.

This studio portrait of the Leroy Smith Orchestra dates from a session in 1914. Pictured from left to right are (first row) Harold Henson, Harry Brooks, and Leroy Smith; (second row) Stanley Peters, Ed Beeler, Fred Peters, and Emerson "Geechie" Harper.

And stamps - white bears and Bart Simpson :)

TW-215491 & Thank you card

In one day I received two postcards from Taiwan. The first one - official Postcrossing card. It seems to be made from the photo of a person who sent it to me.

And the second one was like a "Thank you" for my card. And it is a very beautiful scenery, nice colours, I like it very much. And that way it is interesting to see difference even in one same place.


A nice postcard from China. Almost nothing written on it, that is why I don't know what it is and where it is situated. Unfortunately...
But - there are two big and beautiful stamps. They are from the series China Stamps 2007-6 Selected Works of Li Keran, 2007
