PFF: Pennsylvania

Postmarked Pittsburgh, PA, dated 25 March 2009.
The Keystone State
State of Independence
State bird: Ruffled grouse
State flower: Mountain laurel.

It has finally dawned on me that this great map card was sent by PostMuse who has been commenting here for quite a while.  I don't know why it took me so long to put two and two together, but we won't dwell on that. :)

PostMuse has a great project going, to deal with all her thousands of orphaned postcards, cards she collected originally unwritten.  Now the idea is to send them out to people, preferably in the appropriate country, who will write a message on the back, affix postage, and then return the cards in the mail.  One day the cards, the messages, may be made into a book, a wonderful idea!  I'm going to put my hand up for a few right now.

  7. A good idea indeed! Have a great weekend.

  8. What a wonderful postcard! I loved it! Happy PFF!

  9. I just love these map postcards with all the little pictures on them. We should have these pictures on our roadmaps, so people who are directionally challenged - as I am - will have a better idea of where in the world we are.

  10. I love these old state postcards. I find them very engaging and think someone should use them in schools for teaching. Happy PFF, Sheila!

  11. Hi Shiela,
    I love map postcards of this type. I used to have many pinned on my bedroom wall when I was younger.

  12. Hello from Pakistan!
    I want to swap a postcard with world UNESCO heritage site from your country. Can you send me one such card?
    In return I can send you a nice postcard with beautiful landscape from Pakistan - which I think will be a great addition in your collection?

    You can leave me a comment at

    We can also make a blog link exchange if you are interested....

    Best Regards
    Yours Cheema
