Every once in a while, I like to know who's actually reading this blog. If anyone.
So ... this is an absolutely gorgeous vintage postcard titled "Scenerie of a Russian Wheat Field."
And if you live in a country other than the United States, it can be all yours!
I will mail this old postcard to the first international reader who sends an email to email@example.com.
You must tell me:
1. Your name and mailing address
2. The titles of three of your favorite books
3. One short fact about the folklore of your country
The postcard will be mailed to the first reader to email me with the above information. If I am deluged with email, I will be extremely happy and I will almost certainly find some additional postcards to send through the mail, which will make the debt-ridden U.S. Postal Service happier.
Here's a little more about this postcard:
- It's more than 100 years old.
- It's #509 in the German American Novelty Art Series
- It was produced by the German American Novelty Art Publishing Company of New York
- It was printed in Germany
Don't fret, American readers. I heart you, too. And I will come up with a giveaway for you in the late summer or early fall. So keep reading!
