Hello my friend,
sorry for my delay. I have a lot of work lately, so I can’t keep it updated. But today I bring postcards received in September as winner of the month. What is that? Well, on the Postcrossing Forum, we participate in few lotteries. The winner receive postcards from his/her wishlist or according to his/her taste and at the end of the month choose the winner for the next one.
Here you can see all my received ones:
a new card from my group of Summer cards is here. On 25th August arrived it at home.

I continue receiving postcards as Polaroids. On 17th August, after 20, 21 and 22 days travelling, I received this three cards from Spain. To complete my collection of Polaroids and traditions.
P.D.: the messages are reflections about the pass of the life and the holidays. Very nice all of them.
My dear friend,
during two days in a row two postcards with the same format arrived at home. Postcards imitating Polaroid photos. Many editorials print this sort of cards and people like me are amazed with them.
10th August and 11th August, 15 and 16 days travelling, from Spain.
Both are photographies about the process of dressing of a bullfighter or torero.
Sent on 26th July, arrival on 5th August, from Spain, 11 days travelling. Here a view of the Alhambra (Granada, Spain), UNESCO site.
6th August, from Germany, 2 days travelling. Collection PolaCARD
P.D.: These spanish ones are made by Ediciones ASANGRE
the famous 10th August this beautiful postcard below was found in my mailbox. It came from Spain, namely Granada, and was incredibly for 35 days travelling.
The postcard is part of a serie of works painted originally by Juan A. Carmona García del Real. In really good quality, I love the kind of paper.
P.D.: So many days travelling, the reason probably was the holiday. The post office would have not the whole personal, so they only send the priority post.
I am not a collector of stamps, but it is truth that I also enjoy receiving nice and original stamps. Today I show you the stamps received with the postcards showed until now.
Two stamps of Paco de Lucía (spanish artist)
The first one has no cancellation. Have you ever receive a postcard without cancellation? To me happens a lot with cards from Spain.
Four stamps of the 25th anniversary of CNT
Two stamps of the old king of Spain, Juan Carlos I
Two stamps of Don Quijote de la Macha
The last stamp is my favourite. It is the result of the Competition organized every year by the spanish post, where everybody can send his or her designs for a stamp.
yesterday was a productive day in my mailbox. Here I share four cards more that arrived and are related. All of them come from Spain. Three started their trips in July and the last one on 1st August. They spent between 10-13 days travelling.
Four b/w pictures showing traditions of Andalucia, in the South of Spain: flamenco and bullfighting.
P.D. Curiosity: Two of them have parts of the text “The big kahuna”, the others have personal messages. All were sent by the same person.
