Swap-bot: Show Me What You Like

These names are full of innuendos! But the descriptions clear them up.
You will send one postcard to one partner, of something you like. It could be a building, monument, country, person, artist, animal, musician. Anything YOU like.  Then on the back write a sentence or two about why you like it and chose it for this swap.
So I sent one that portrays my closet Mary Engelbreit obsession:
Sigh. It's so adorable. Look at the "charms!" and the flowers! and the gingham! and the lace! OMG somebody stop me.

**EDIT** Apparently someone loves M.E. almost as much as I do. Over at Cherry Chick, they're having M.E. Mondays.  Are you kidding me?!? A whole day devoted to M.E. cuteness?!? Sign me up!

Here's what I got in return:
It's an Ansel Adams black & white photograph of Zion National Park in Utah.  The woman who sent it loves Ansel Adams, and so do I, but this print just doesn't speak to me. Oh well, I'm just glad to have the postcard!

P.S. Notice the USPS stamped it on the wrong side. I think they hate me. Here's more proof.

OK what is WITH the stupid post office??? ARGHHHHH

PS - love the postcard you sent out! The one you got? Not so much. But meh, it's a postcard.

Dana, your anger at the USPS makes me glad for you that you live in Europe. I don't want to have to bake you a cake with a shank in it for when you get arrested for going ape-shit on some poor mail carrier. But I totally would. Because that's what friends are for.

I think both post cards are great. Ansel Adams never took a poor photo. He set the standards for my high school photo ambitions.
(I was really artistic back in them olden days.)
And M.E. always makes one smile.
Glad you joined the hop and would love to see more of your Mary obsession.

dogsmom- True, Ansel Adams is great. But the photo, when sized down and printed on a commercial postcard, then mailed through the USPS, then scanned on my computer, not great. LOL.
