Postcrossing arrivals: Cool stuff on the reverse sides

As a companion piece to Monday's post about some groovy Postcrossing cards that have arrived in my mailbox this autumn, here are some interesting stamps, drawings and other goodies from the backs of a few postcards.

From Annick in France

Annick has a wonderful French-language website full of images of decorated envelopes and postcards.

From Maya in Belarus
Maya is the 6-year-old who sent me the Inga Paltser owl postcard. As a fledgling artist, she added some of her own illustrations on the back.

She also has her own awesome stamp, it seems!

From Verena in Germany

The first image is Verena's family crest. And the PostCat and Poste Wonderland stamps are very cool. Verena also writes in her message that her family lives in the countryside in northern Germany and has on its land an 800-year-old watermill. There is a German-language website, with photo, about Wassermühle Ellringen ("Watermill Ellringen").
