Postcards for the Weekend

This weekend the theme of Postcards for the Weekend is 'anything you wish'.

Coincidentally I received two cards from Eva this weekend (well, one on Friday and the other yesterday, Saturday), which is a good reason to post them now!

This postcard shows a flying object and I am not sure if it is a hot air balloon or zeppelin. Eva bought it in Amiens, France, the city where Jules Vernes has lived for many years.
I love the combination of the design of the flying object and the map - and stamps on top and airmail stripes on the right (wondering why most airmail envelopes have red and blue lines/chevrons?).

On the back side Eva added wonderful stamps, among them a clear hot air balloon:

Some other creatures who even knew how to fly long before Jules Verne was thinking about it, appear on this postcard:

The postcard is titled 'Reality', from a book named 'ABC Photography', and the photo itself is titled 'Sustenance 114', made by Neeta Madahar in 2003.

On the back side an other wonderful stamp, showing a rooster and a hen in a stained glass window. They represent the legend of the Miracle of Santo Domingo de la Calzada.

Thank you very much, Eva!

3 opmerkingen:

  1. It is a zeppelin. I wanted to draw you a balloon, but then I found that postcard, and I thought it could match with the stamp anyway.

    1. Sure it matches, again thank you very much, I love this mail :-)

  2. Very nice postcards and stamps combination. This makes me think of the word "flight" and "weightlessness". These postcards also remind me of two nice postcards to feature for this weekend's theme. Thank you very much for sharing Heleen!
