International mail is sometimes amazing. Magda (@stamp_and_away) sent this blueberry cupcake and it came through the mail perfectly. I ate it in just six bites. Do you ever cut the bottom off your cupcake postcards and sandwich the icing before you eat them? #postcardist #cupcake #blueberry #blue

Um...no, it wasn’t me. The card is blank. You can [fill in the blank] with any name you like. Tell me...did you think of someone who should get this card right away? Don’t comment on the name. Just yes or no. And thanks to Jess (@jessdoesdiy) for this thought experiment. #postcardist

Some days don’t have themes. But they do have dang great postcards. This one from Shanny (@shmaaac) is that. A really beautiful watercolor. And a place I’m sure she’d talk about on @takeahikepodcast #postcardist

Don’t pass me by, don’t make me cry, don’t make me blue / ‘cause you know darlin’ I love only you. 🎸 Imagine opening a package, only to discover your buddy Bill (@bill.haines1959) has sent you the brand new Beatles White Album. It’s now the soundtrack to my December days. Thanks, buddy. #postcardist #whitealbum #beatles

“My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or the other of us has to go.” - Oscar Wilde on his death bed. Jessie (@auntieaplus) asks if this is the wallpaper he referred to. #postcardist #wallpaper #oscarwilde

Elk crossing Highway 101 at Brinnon, Washington. I want to see this sight where Akasha sees this as part of her daily drive. Spectacular. #postcardist #olympicmountainrange

I’m chuffed to have won the @artonapostcard auction for this one-of-kind postcard by the celebrated artist Peter Layzell. He titled this oil painting “Masked Figure.” Scroll through to see more detail on this postcard. I feel honored to have it. @peterlayzellpainter #postcardist #peterlayzell

I’ve got a couple ideas. And Jessie (@auntieaplus) has a lot of them with her consultancy (@indemand_communication). No comments required...but what’s the coolest idea you came up with this week? And if you’re not doing it, why not? #postcardist #oscarwilde

Just sit back for 15 seconds and look at this original art postcard that Jessica’s (@jessdoesdiy) friend created and signed. Thanks so much, Jess, for this special card. And this moment of zen. #postcardist #waves #flowing #tropicalday

I’ve never surfed the Bonzai Pipeline but I have web surfed. And that’s kinda like hanging ten, right Tara (@tbt924)? I give this gorgeous lenticular card form friend a 10, that’s for certain. #postcardist #lenticular #postcard #tropicalday

Evan (@thepostlandia) went to a post office. He took a picture. As Phoebe Buffay said: Lather. Rinse. Repeat as needed. In Evan’s case, that’s approaching 10,000 times. I think he needs a theme song. #postcardist #longbranch #postoffice

So, one time Jessica (@jessdoesdiy) asked if I wanted to join her for a brunch cruise on Lake Superior. But I misheard what she said. I thought she said, “Let’s meet at 10am. The ship you’ll be looking for is the S.S. Moronic.” 🚢 I missed out on the eggs Benedict. #postcardist #ssnoronic #greatlakes

Long before there was The Postcardist Podcast, Bill (@bill.haines1959) and I used to put on white tuxedo jackets, black pants, and patent leather shoes while we recorded The Zion-Benton Blues using nothing but xylophones, oboes, and triangles. #postcardist

Funny. Amazon Prime says hello to me every day. I’m starting to have the definitive collection of box sizes from all the prime deliveries to my house. So imagine my delight when I got this postcard from them. No...wait...I’m just kidding. I got this card from Sara (@snailmailsuperstar) from when she was visiting their geodesic dome one day. #postcardist

Every once in a while, when it’s especially cold in New England, I skate to my mailbox and amaze my neighbors with pirouettes that allow my red cape to flow like a muleta. Here’s a painting of that moment captured by Hieronymous Bosch as I was gliding on wooden skates one wintery day. Thank you, Zan (@postcardzania) for sending this from Bosch to me. #postcardist
