Happy Post Card Friendship Friday

As usual on Friday I like to get into Marie's meme, with mail.

You know how sometimes you get up in the morning and think of someone, and you just can't stop thinking about them, well today it happened to me. Hermina just popped into my head, and I can't stop thinking about her. Hermina is the cousin of my husband's godmother. I met Hermina through Jenny (the godmother). Jenny annually has a family and friends picnic, and godchildren and their spouses and extended family are included. Hermina is a retired school teacher. Over the past few years she's been travelling abroad to teach english. Anyway the minute I thought of Hermina I also thought I must share these beauties with you,
One year at the picnic she gave my son's these fabulous stamps from China. They didn't seem to be impressed, but I was. I really thought the cover and overall presentation was interesting. It is about 81/2 x 11 hard card board, (almost book board, now there's an idea of what to do with it)..
The front, inside and back are beautifully presented

and check out the great popcorn recipe on my kitchen blog, Hermina made it, and I could almost taste it. It might be movie night at my house tonight.

Dear Hermina sending you great and happy thoughts.

Someone I knew long ago, who knew I liked stamps, went to China and came back with a small book filled with stamps. Something I still owww and ahhhhh over! I know you are proud of this collection. Nice to meet Hermina!

Beautiful! She's traveling around teaching English?! What a wonderful adventure!

What a wonderful thing to have! China still seems so remote and exotic - how I'd love to be able to see it for myself!

Yes from time to time it is like that,
you just can't stop thinking about them.

I usually try to call them if it is possible.

I got hooked on oriental advertising art while in Tokyo for 10 days in 1970. This is another splendid example of why I like it!

I especially like the one with the gold spiral dragon circle in the center. My brother would love these too!
