Meeting Tessa in Antwerp

I met my pen-friend Tessa in Antwerp today. She was so kind to bring me a gift! And yes, of course Pumpkin needed to steal the show...
We visited three museums, the Rockox house,
Mayer van den Bergh museum and we did a quick tour
around the Rubens house.

And I wouldn't be a real postcard lover or
letter writer if I didn't buy some cards
and pretty bookmarks for my pen-friends.

Jetoy mania!

I don't think this need much explanation.

The Jetoy bag is some kind of laptop bag,
a different cat on each side.

Letters from pen-friends

From Angel (Austria)

 From Asierleigh (USA)
The stamps are to celebrate the 500th anniversary
of the discovery of Florida by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1513.
Florida was called "La Florida" which means land of flowers
in old Spanish and the stamps show all the native flowers together.
(4 stamps issued 2013)
