Postcards for the weekend 83: Patterns & prints

I had a minor accident last Sunday evening that has limited my mobility. Since I changed my laptop the week before and the scanned copy of my postcards were temporarily moved to my portable hard drive, I don't have access both to the actual postcards and the scanned copies at the moment. I've been staying at my boyfriend's place since the accident and my portable hard drive is in the office and the actual postcards are at my place. Thankfully, I have some scans that are still yet to be cleaned up from my e-mail. It might be a bit of stretch for this weekend's theme but I hope these still works :)

Souvenir postcard from Seoul, Korea

This postcard is from a 21-pc set entitled Painting of Flowers, Birds, Insects, and Fish. The set was printed by the Cultural Foundation of National Museum of Korea. This is among a few postcards from the set that I kept for myself as a souvenir from the trip back in mid-March.

DE-5853679, Sent from Potsdam
Traveled 9,947 km in 6 days

The label at the back of the postcard was in German. Roughly translated in English: I found them in the spring shadow, where I tied them with rosebands. I'm quite not sure whether the postcard should be in portrait or landscape orientation. The painting looks like a rose garden of mixed colors for me.

Given that this weekend's theme seems to be open for interpretation, I'm specially more excited to see the contributions this weekend.



  1. Lovely Korean cards. Sorry to hear about your accident, wishing you a speedy recovery.

  2. Hi Maria, I am so sorry to hear about your accident. I hope you will have a 100% recovery soon! The cards you have posted for Patterns & Prints are great. Both are very pretty. At first I did not think I could find a card that would fit the theme, but then ... looking at the old silk card thought maybe it would work. Please let me know what you think! Take care and speedy recovery! John

  3. Hope you're feeling better, Maria. I like those Korean paintings, how they match and yet aren't exactly the same.
