Quest for Post Cards


Collectors! We all have or still do have things we love to collect. Some collect thimbles or shot glasses, yet other collect vintage things like my brother Mike. He is an avid fan of anything relating to 1940's World War 1 and 2. If you have anything you're interested in selling, send me an email and I'll put you in touch with him.

On another note, my youngest is a collector of post cards. As my hubby, Steve has traveled for work, if he has time, he will stop and pick a couple up in the airports as he passes through. Yet, I see I have so many bloggers from all over the US and even lucky enough to have some outside our beautiful country.

Here is my favor to all of you. If you are interested in helping her complete her collection, would you email me and I'll send you our mailing address so you can send her a post card! I can only imagine the surprised look on her face to have the mailbox filled with post cards from all over the world.

It would be great to have any kind of post card but ones that really showcase your city, or your state or country can help her with studies of places around the globe. We'd even be interested in sending you one back from our desert community barring all creepy and crawly critters.

Here's hoping you can make a little happiness in the life of a child. I will keep Kailee's progress of just where she is getting them from on my side bar to the right. Thanks in advance for all your help!

My husband and I are heading to, in the next 6-8 months, South Africa, Ethiopia, Boston, Orlando, Cleveland, Hong Kong and possibly Sri Lanka. Hopefully that will add to her collection!!!

Mari said...

I can send one from Michigan. I wish I had some travels planned like Mrs D, but maybe Michigan will help the collection!

Parsley said...

We're still doing a postcard exchange. Would be glad to join in with her.

I am from Indiana, the state of flat land and cornfields, but it's been my home sweet home for 54 years!! I will keep my eye out for a postcard and then let you know when I have it ready to send.

Kat, I passed on to you a BEAUTIFUL Blog award today over on my blog. You were one of the first blog buddies I had when I started blogging in August of last year and you have continued to be an encouragement to me. Thank you! Make sure when you check it out to scroll down on my post since I posted about more than one award.

What an absolute FUN thing to do!! Just imagine all the post cards you're going to get. Each one with it's own story. I plan to check in and see where they're coming from. Have fun!! ~Amy

Fun! Count me in! :)

Denise said...

I pray you get bunches.

Steph T. said...

I would love to send Kailee a post card. I already have your address. I will try and send it out as soon as I can.

Tabitha@ichoosebliss said...

Every time I go home to New Orleans I purchase postcards, so I can send her one of N.O. and of San Antonio.

I would be glad to send her one from Charleston. I have some old postcards from Italy but since I will never make it back there I need to keep them. :(

What a great idea Kat. Pray that this idea takes off. Blessings.

Heckety said...

Guess what has arrived? My prize from you, made by Jane! Its just wonderful and so sunny cheerful! I put a photo on my place today. Thank you so much for that, its a treasure, and triple special because it came from you and made by Jane!
I'll send your Cailee a postcard for sure, actually, I'll ask my girls to send it, make it more special for her.
You make your brother sound like part of the vintage collection....is he???
And Cailee's scarf is coming along well, I amn't forgetting it!

Mom's Coffee Time said...

I got my book from you in the mail last night, thank you for drawing my name and sending it along to me!! Yippie! Happy Friday! ~Amy

I live in Oklahoma, which isn't exotic or tropical or anything, but it's been my home always. I will send her a postcard from here. My husband, however, travels some. He's leaving for China next week. I will have him try to find one there and mail it to her. I don't have your email address though and the link isn't working for me, mine is allforkids@cox.net
We are actually heading to California in July for vacation, I've never been there. A postcard back for my youngest, 10 year old twin boys, would be neat if you think about it. Love, Angel

Deborah Ann said...

Fun! Sure, I'll send her a postcard. I'll have to find something with cows or cheese since (ugh) that's what we're known for. Email the addy.

I collect fridge magnets. Just brought back some beauts from AZ!

Tea With Tiffany said...

You have my email. :) What a sweet gesture...share with me.

Just Breathe said...

That is an awesome idea. I will try to remember that when I travel.

Sandra said...

You know I'm doing a Postcard Exchange right now so I have postcards from Arizona laying around, I would love to send her one, not sure if she already has one from this State or not.

I think you have my email :)

Hugs,
Sandra

Tracy's corner said...

I can send one from Pennsylvania and Delware. I can see to e-mail you though. Maybe you can e-mail me from my profile?

Stacey said...

I will send one from Missouri. Send me the address. :)

Bonnie Heather said...

Me tooooo! I'm from Kelowna British Columbia Canada.

Peggy said...

Blessings Kat... I wish I had clicked on this way back when... I travel back and forth from MN to Mexico frequently, usually once a year.

I have a bag of postcards from where I am currently in Mexico. I'd love to pick out a few different ones to send and so if you're still collecting, click on my comment and it should give you my email (I think)! When I travel again, I will always think of this now and pick up more to send that she does not yet have... states or places here.

What a great idea!!!

Peggy

Kat,
If you'll send me your address, I'd love to send your sweet Kailee a postcard. It might take me a little bit to get it out to her, as I am not quite out and about yet, but as soon as I find a fun Missouri postcard, I'd love to send her one.

Love you friend,
Dawn

Crown of Beauty said...

I'd be glad to send Kailee several postcards from my country...and also from Thailand where I'll be going this January.

Email me your mailing address please.

Love

Cammy and her Dad are in. We didn't see any from Wisconsin. We think we have some from our cabins on High Lake in Boulder Junction, Wis. We might have a few others as well.
Love, Cammy and Todd Grace
