Postcards for the weekend: Happiness

This Postcards for the Weekend's theme is 'Happiness'!

One of the things that make me happy is nice mail. And it always is good to see the postman being happy by delivering mail, too:



Also this smurf is very happy, only he cannot bring the edges of his mouth upwards because he has to play the posthorn:



Nice mail brings happiness, both to the sender and receiver:





Happiness is for everyone, for the young and for the old.

Dutch illustrator Fiep Westendorp drew people of all ages, but she became most famous by her children's illustrations. This one of a child and cat, warmly packed against the cold, sharing happiness in the winter snow:



Finnish illustrator Inge Löök is famous for her illustrations of two very happy old ladies. Here the cheerful ladies are enjoying a nice day in the spring sun, with a drink and a play:



Enjoy more happy postcards at and via Maria's Postcards for the Weekend!

  2. Yes a full mailbox always brings happiness. I enjoyed your happy cards, a nice big hat on a snowy morning would be cosy too.

  6. Hi Heleen, What a nice collection of cards for the Happiness theme! Hard for me to pick a favorite as they are all so good, but just can't get over how neat the bear card is. Love the art and the address on the envelope: Mr and Mrs Bear, Three Bears Cottage, The Woods. Just great! Thanks for sharing!
