Postcard Sharing

My dear bookish friend Chachic asked if I could post pictures of the postcards I acquired recently, and I was only too happy to oblige. I recently acquired these three postcard sets:

The Pixar set is the one I've been pining over for several months before the wonderful boy bought it for me as a surprise present. The Shanghai Now & Then set on the left is from the Foreign Languages Bookstore, and the one on the right is from the Shanghai Art Museum, featuring works of art from the museum's collection.

Inside the beautiful Pixar box is 100 high-quality, colorful postcards, featuring stills or sketches from various Pixar movies!
The first seven cards at the top of the pile:

The Shanghai Now & Then set consists of "paired" postcards, one featuring a site in the present day, the other showing it as it was in the early 20th century.
Here's an example of a pair featuring the Bund, the long avenue alongside the Huangpu River with stunning European-style architecture:

Some of the postcards inside the Shanghai Art Museum set:

And because I had my camera out, here are some shots of the postcards I have received lately from friends, family, and PostCrossing members:

If you're interested in exchanging postcards with me, leave me a comment below or send me an email! I never get tired of sending out postcards. :)


  1. I love the idea of those now and then postcards- really interesting! Thanks for sharing.

  2. What fun postcards! I remember my sons 1st grade class tried to have 500 postcards mailed to their class. It was fun seeing where all the cards came from! That was 10+ years ago.

  3. YAY Steph! Thanks for taking pictures of your postcards and posting them on your blog. Love looking through these pictures. The Pixar set looks great but I decided to hold off on purchasing that because I already have a Puffin and a Ladybird set. :P That Shanghai Now & Then set is amazing - wish they create something like that for Manila. One of my biggest frustrations is we don't have enough pretty local postcards. I'll probably be tempted to get one of those sets if I ever get to visit Shanghai.

    PS: There's snail mail on its way to you. :P

  4. Love it! I guess the real question is: will you be able to part with the postcards in your sets? I'm so terrible... I fall in love with the individual cards and can't bear to part with them. I've actually started buying doubles of ones I really like: one for me, one to mail. And you could have some mail coming your way from Maryland, too!
