Today's post

 Rolf lives in a little village near the beautiful city of Magdeburg in Germany.  He sent this multi-view card of  Magdeburg's attractions.  

Katja was having a tea party with her postcrossing friends in Novosibirsk, Russia. 
They all sent greetings with this beautiful card  showing Vydubychi Monastery and Botanical Garden in Kiev, Ukraine.

Great add for my movie star collection from Konstante, Germany .

Russian artists

Sofia from Moscov sent these beautiful and  fabulous postcards.
The artist is Daria Gerasimova, a Russian illustrator of childrens books.
Unfortunately I didn't find any  information about her.
But I really like her art works very much!

 Mushroom Hunting

 Going after magic herbs

Merry winter fish


They remind me of many Russian and Ukrainian childrens stories
we used to read to our children.
These are two dearest examples from our bookshelf:

E. Bulatova and O. Vasiljeva  
Vaarin kinnas / Mitten / РУКАВИЧКА

  
Yuri Vasnetsov:
  Rainbow arc. Russian folk songs, tales, 
nursery rhymes

Vasily Perov

 Arrival of a New Governess in a Merchant House, 1866

 Hunters at rest, 1871

Last Journey (Sending off the Deceased ) 1865

 Arriving at the inquiry,  1857

Easter Procession in a Village, 1861


 Portrait of the Author Fyodor Dostoyevsky , 1872

Solitary Guitarist, 1865

Vasily Perov (1834-1882) was a Russian painter of scenes and portraits.
Some of his works display humor or irony, but some are very serious. His paintings shows different levels of Russian society - rich and poor.

This is one of those sad descriptions of poverty.

Bridge, beauty and tram

Ha'Penny Bridge
 Olen vähän (!!)  jäljessä näissä korttipäivityksissä. Tässä viikko 39, aika hiljainen..

Ensimmäinen virallinen postikortti Irlannista tuli Claudialta Dublinin läheltä.
Kortissa on Ha'pennyn silta Liffey joella Dublinissa.  Claudian kortti oli ilmeisesti vähän harhaillut naapurienkin postilaatikoissa, koska se löytyi vasta sunnuntaina meidän omasta laatikosta.

Received on: 29 Sep, 2013
 Distance: 1,957 km (1,216 miles)
Travel time: 5 days 
My first official card from Ireland, thank you Claudia.

Thank you Xue!



Lisboa, Electrico no. 28
Viikon 39 lemppari :)
Ystäväni Soili lähetti Lissabonista idyllisen katunäkymän.
 Electrico no. 28 kiipeää ylös Lissabonin mäkisiä katuja.
Kiitos Soili!

My friend Soili lives near Lisbon, Portugal. 
She sent this idyllic street view from the hilly Lisbon.
Thank you Soili
