Postcards from Romania and Germany

Two castles in this blog post! 
The first is an offical Postcrossing postcard 
from Romania 

I love this view of Corvin Castle

"Flowers' clock"
(set of 6, 2013)
Each stamp combines the image of a flower with
a clock from the Nicolae Simache Clock Museum in Ploiesti.
The time on the clock tells us when this particular flower blooms during the day.

Finally in my collection Neuschwanstein Castle

About mail and a butterfly

I received two envelopes today! 
One is a Swap-bot swap from Germany,
two bags of tea for my mom, but I had the 
pleasure of finding them in the mail. 

The tea smelled really sweet by the way

This is a letter from my pen-friend Kasia.
As you can see, the cat was curious and ended up on the pic too.

And this is a butterfly made from German
flower stamps. I never thought it would come out
so well, I am really happy with the result.
