Kaupungintalo – Town Hall.

Northwest China – Through Candy’s Eyes!

Just in time for Christmas we received this beautiful card from Candy in China.

The image was taken by Candy herself. It is of the Northwest of China. A very different view of rural life than most post cards would depict. It is definitely a beautiful card. Thanks Candy for sharing your life, photography and perspective with us!

This card travelled 8,069 kilometres over 15 days to get from Candy’s house to ours.

A butterfly lands in our Garden!

This beautiful postcard came all the way from Katrin in Germany. Katrin took the photograph herself and says it is of the peacock Butterfly, which is very common in Germany.

Thanks Katrin for showing us the beautiful Butterfly and also for obviously having a keen photographic eye!

Our Butterfly flew 16,690 kilometres over 10 days to land in our garden!
