Never too much mail

As I mentioned in my previous post, I went to a
Postcrossing meeting. Of course I had a card 
signed for my own collection.

"Poes met vijf jongen" door Henriëtte Ronner-Knip

Henriëtte Ronner-Knip (31 May 1821, Amsterdam - 2 March 1909, Elsene) was a Dutch painter.
Born Henriëtte Knip in Amsterdam, she moved at a young age to Den Bosch and was until 1850 active in Sint-Michielsgestel and Boxtel. That year she married Feico Ronner and moved to Belgium, first to Brussels and in 1878 to Elsene. She studied with her father, Joseph August Knip.
She was best known for her paintings of subjects from nature, especially cats and dogs.

Two envelopes, good for TEN postcards: part 2

Today I received these postcards from a very kind fellow postcrosser

From Poland

Polish folklore

Reksio (on the right) is a Polish cartoon character from the TV animated series by the same title. Reksio was created by a Polish director Lechosław Marszałek. Its 65 episodes were made from 1967 to 1990 in a Cartoon Movies Studio (Studio Filmów Rysunkowych) in Bielsko-Biała. All episodes describe adventures of a friendly, piebald terrier dog named Reksio, with his animal friends - hens, cats, other dogs and their owners.
