postcard perfect 03: pennsylvania – the keystone state

Here’s another one of the first postcards I received when I was just starting with my postcrossing hobby. This one is from a personal swap with fellow PMC member, sis Mel.  This is a photo of the State where she lives, Pennsylvania (PA), which is also popularly known as the Keystone State.

Here’s what the postcard says:

Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” founded in 1681, one of the original 13 colonies, has had a prominent place in American history. With beautiful scenery + excellent facilities four outdoor recreation, visitors + sportsmen are attracted year round.

Liberty Bell, located in Philadelphia, is one of the famous landmarks found in Pennsylvania. If I get lucky, I want to visit this place one day.

Thanks sis Mel for this beautiful card. By the way, it cam with this cool stamp:

postcard perfect 02: toronto islands – canada

Today, I am sharing this lovely postcard of the Toronto Islands, Ontario Canada. It has the city’s vast skyline in the background. This is also one of the very first postcards I have  received. This was sent by no less than our gracious host, Mommy Willa.

The Toronto Islands are a chain of small islands in the city of Toronto, Canada. Comprising the only group of islands in the western part of Lake Ontario, the Toronto Islands are located just offshore from the city centre, and provide shelter for Toronto Harbour. The islands are a popular recreational destination, and are home to a small residential community and to the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. They are connected to the mainland by several ferry services.

The islands comprise the largest urban car-free community in North America, though some service vehicles are permitted. Recreational bicyclists are accommodated on the ferries, and bicycles, quadracycles, and canoes can be rented on the islands as well.

I also find the white bear (is that a polar bear?) in the stamp very adorable. Thank you so much,  Mommy Willa + more power to Postcard Perfect! :)

postcard perfect 01: masskara festival – bacolod city

Finally, I was able to join this postcard meme.  I have been meaning to, ever since I discovered this new passion of mine, but alas, I haven’t got the luxury of time. Hopefully this continues so I can make a post each week. It will be one great way to showcase my just-starting postcard collection + chronicle my progress, too. So, please wish me luck ;D

Now on with my share for the week:

This is one of the very first postcards I’ve ever received + it was sent by non other than our very generous + thoughtful PMC mum, Rubz. This is a photograph of one of the most famous attraction in Bacolod City,  the colorful + vibrant, Masskara Festival.

Bacolod is one of the places here in the country that I love to see + hopefully I can visit it one day soon :)

By the way, I also love the Protect the Ozone Layer stamp that goes with it. Thanks Mommy Rubz for your generosity :D
