Polar Bears & More Winter Scenes


Phillip sent this shinning postcard with Christmas/New Year wishes using the United Nations postal service. He added one of the 2017 stamps that celebrate World Environment Day (big picture on Phillip's blog post), and also a simply beautiful mail art on the cover:



So finally I got three polar bears!


Heleen and Eric were the other happy recipients of these bears. It took more time for them to reach Spain that the Netherlands and France, how curious!



Folded postcard sent by Catherine (France), with a festive illustration of Dutch artist Anton Pieck.

Handmade collage sent by Eva (Germany).

I added this post to Maria's link Postcards for the Weekend, the theme today being Winter Scenes.

  3. I loved Anton Pieck when I lived in the Netherlands and have a couple of his prints that I bring out every winter.
    Perhaps the polar bear had to shed a bit of his coat before reaching warm Spain?!

    1. I guess so. My place in Spain is too warm for a polar bear... he would be more comfortable in the mountains! :)
