Lithuania and Russia Cards

It's Wednesday evening and I have just a small update , with just 2 cards . That is all that has arrived so far this week. They come from Lithuania and Russia and both are official Postcrossing cards.
First let's have a look at the card from Lithuania. Gintaras sent this card showing a scene of the Baltic Sea seashore. I guess you have to have seen it to really know what it's about. Maybe it's some sort of signage or wind direction vanes. I really don't know. But, as always , I'm glad to have the card. Amber used 2 really nice stamps . The stamp on the left was issued in 2009 and is 1 of 22 in a set. The other stamp is from 2010 and is also 1 of a set of 2. The other one in this set shows a dragonfly.

The next card from Russia shows the last emperor of Russia , Nicholas II with his family. Unfortunately, none of them made it past 1918, having been killed by the Bolsheviks. Kati sent this card along and used a group of definitives from 2008.

That's it for this time. Thanks to Gintaras and Kati. Take care.
