My favorite history subject is the settling of the wild west. I love receiving postcards of anything related to this or Native Americans. It's rare for me to receive postcards about this so when I discovered a RR (round robin) that would allow me to receive these types of postcards on one of the Postcrossing forums, I just had to join. (Click here to see and read more about this specific RR. Some of the postcards I collect are ones I find on my trips around the US. This RR allows me to send my blank unwritten postcard to a different user who then writes it, stamps it and sends it back to me. I love it because I get the postcards I really like written, stamped and sent back to me. Here are the three postcards I received from the RR. All of these postcards feature Virginia City, Nevada in the late 1800s.

On Saturday August 10th, my friend, Holly and I went to some garage sales. I managed to find these really cool brown envelopes for $1.00 that look like they are made of mixed paper and some cute blank note cards for 25 cents. After that, we headed to Joann's where I found another set of notecards (not pictured) and some decorative tape for sealing envelopes. Most of the tape I found in the dollar bins near the cash register, but I couldn't resist the owl tape that was on sale.
