A Two Card Week

I'm sure it's time for an update. But, I was waiting for a few more postcards to show up , unfortunately they never arrived. During the whole of last week, just two postcards arrived. A very slow week, to be sure. I can only hope for a better week coming up. It really can't get much worse. Two cards in a week must certainly be a record , but not a very good one.
Oh well, on to the two wonderful cards that did arrive. Both are official Postcrossing cards from Great Britain and Slovenia.
Let's have a look at the Great Britain card first. It was sent by Karen and is from Nottinghamshire. Nottinghamshire is an English county in the East Midlands. It is famous for its involvement as the home of Robin Hood . Tourists flock to this area to visit Sherwood Forest and Nottingham.Karen's card shows a number of buildings in the area . At top left is Newark Castle and at bottom right is Nottingham Town Hall. Karen mentioned on her card that she couldn't really find a nice postcard, so she made her own. I think that she did a really nice job. Congrats Karen.

My only other card for the week was sent by Andresa from Ljubljana. Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia and its largest city. With a population of close to 300,000 it is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative centre of Slovenia. The card has 3 views from the city. Top left is Ljubljana Castle , dating back to 1144. In the center is a statue of France Preseren, considered the Slovene National Poet. On the right is Saint Nicholas Cathedral. The stamp on this card is a 2007 Christmas issue stamp.

Well a small update, but what can I say. Two postcards equals a small blog.
Take care and keep those cards coming !
