My first reaction when I saw this card was one of surprise that in Portugal they should have special postcard boxes. :)  It dawned fairly quickly that "cartas" means letters in Portuguese as it does, I think, in Spanish.

I realise I don't know what the usual letter boxes are in many countries.  In the UK we receive our letters via a slot such as this (though probably less decorative) through the door  and only rarely do you have to go and collect them from a box elsewhere.  Adullamite could probably correct me if I'm wrong.  In France the reverse seems to be true.  I will wait to be told about everywhere else.

I'm afraid I won't be around this weekend, to comment on other posts, but I'll catch up with you all during the coming week.

This is a post for Postcard Friday, which is hosted by Beth Niquette at The Best Hearts are Crunchy.

  1. Yes, cartas is also letters in Spanish. These letter slots are quite pretty!

    Hope you're doing something very fun this weekend.

  2. I've always loved these letter boxes. We have plain old mailboxes here, so these intricately designed boxes are lovely.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
