I've been away for quite a while, haven't I? Well, it wasn't by choice, trust me. I've been away from Postcrossing, and cards in general, due to health issues. You see, I've developed a tendinitis on my right wrist. It's a nasty thing: it hurts a lot and it makes it hard to do... well... anything. And forget about writing. It hurts like someone has set my hand on fire. Quite horrible. But I am feeling a little better, at least enough to go back to blogging about postcards. Slowly, mind you, but still going.
So, this wonderful card was sent by Monica and it shows several landmark of North Carolina, one of the southern american states. It was one of the original 13 states to form the United States of America. The card shows the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Piedmont plateau, the Outer Banks and its state bird, the cardinal.
When this card reached my hands, it made me smile. I loved the colours and the pictures, it seemed like a place where I could relax and enjoy myself. I specially loved the autumn colours in the trees. So beautiful! Maybe one day, who knows...
My name is Márcia and I live in a beautiful island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean named Terceira. It is located in the Portuguese archipelago of Açores (Azores in English, Azoren in German).
I started collecting postcards when I was just a teenager but until I joined the Postcrossing Project, it was a very small collection. :)
Since then I’ve received so many beautiful cards and learned so many new things that I’ve decided it would be interesting to share that knowledge and beauty with my friends and fellow postcrossers. Hence, this blog!
I will try and make it as fun and interesting as possible and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Oh, and please don’t be shy! If you feel like it, leave a comment! Hugs to all, Márcia
