Going Postal

March 25, 2010

“I get mail; therefore I am.” ~ Scott Adams

Twenty-eight postcards have found their way to the Fairfield House!

I have sent fifty-five postcards out and will be mailing an additional six this week. Did you get yours yet?

Eight people who linked in haven’t replied to my emails to exchange addresses.

I encourage you to reach out to others that have linked in to exchange cards. Two readers are participating that do not have blogs and therefore are not on the link. If you are interested in exchanging cards with them: and

The following states are still needed to reach my goal of receiving a card from each state : Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming. If you haven’t posted about the exchange on your blog, please do.

People will be able to link in until April 4th.

At that point, anyone who has participated in the exchange will be entered in drawing for a NJ Themed box of goodies. If you enjoyed the postcard I sent you, imagine what will be in the box — no not an elephant! (Inside joke for those that received Lucy cards.)

Below are the postcards I’ve received so far. Once the exchange ends, I’ll show you all of them.

Here’s hoping I get a card from you!

    That’s just the coolest! I do hope you get replies from all whom you sent cards to. Maybe this post will be a kindly reminder.

    Thanks for this reminder. I had a few newer McLinky people to contact!

    D – thanks for stopping by – LOVE that new pic of the house and trees – wish we had a little more spring inspiration around here…patience though – all in time…hope your postcard exchange is successful! Happy to hear you’ll still be stopping by the blog – I hope to keep up posting at least once if not a few, times a week through the move…if not, I’ll live vicariously through yours and others 😉

    Happy Friday – enjoy your weekend,

    Ok, somehow my comment on this post ended up on the St. Paddy’s post.
    Oops! Just call me Buzz.

    Love the video! That music is perfect.

    I ended up designing my cards through a USPS website – didn’t know there was such a place until I was up in the wee hours of the morning googling, “how to make a postcard”!!!!

    I hope you get it soon.

    Yes, I did get your postcard, and I love it! Such neat handwriting. Could you even read mine? 🙂

    Beauty in blooms…I love the flowers. I would absolutely love to trade a postcard with you all as well. Drop me a line and your post will be on its merry way.
    Great video of all the postcards received they all are so unique. Such a neat way to learn about all the wonderful U.S. of A.. Mine to you should have or will be soon arriving from Minnesota. Thanks for the trade and cant wait to see all the end results when all have made their way to your doorstep.

    So very clever, … the music and the post!! I saved your address and will check in on our travels this summer to see if I can help you out for the missing states….It really was fun to get something different in the mail besides junk and bills….Going to try to do it more often just because…..

    I just love the video! I just sat there smiling enjoying the song and all the different cards go by and there was mine. How cool is that?! I loved your card and have it in my craft room with my fav note cards and letters. Thank you!

    Well look how clever you are with YT.. great video my dear. Perfect song too. I’ve gotten 19 so far now myself.. and it’s been interesting indeed.

    I see Spring has slowly sprung up north and I can’t wait to see some of your garden and that new fountain that you purchased??

    Thanks for keeping tabs on this post card exchange!!!

    Love and miss you lots!!
