Hello! I succeeded in leaving the wrong url last time I visited, I’m not entirely sure what I thought I was doing, but fortunately I found the message. I’d be delighted to join in, thank you for inviting me. At the moment I’m away from home, so it will be next week before I can do anything about it, but I will.
Excellent idea! I’m not that into vehicles, but I love postcards so I’ll be sure to post something at CanadaGenealogy to celebrate your first Carnival. Luckily, tomorrow is the Vancouver Postcard Club meeting, so if I don’t have a suitable card here, I may find one there!
That’s great, Diane.
Remember thought that the WHEELS connections can be tenuous – for instance, you could have something like a sewing machine or clock (although I confess I’ve never had a sewing machine or clock on one of my cards!!!!), or a postcard from the Wheel of Fortune show – you get the picture (smile). I’m so jealous you’re going to that meeting – have fun.
[…] From Imajica!! 😀 Yes, I sent myself this postcard when I was a short trip to Malacca in 2007. I always love bullock carts.. or “Kereta lembu” how we call it (literally translates to Cow car). It used to be a mode of transportation in the past, but nowadays they just take tourists for a ride around the town square. And see the WHEEL! 🙂 Therefore I can sign up this post for A Festival of Postcards!!! […]
Can’t wait to participate in this fun-carnival and see all of the other entries. After finding Marie at Cpaphil Vintage Postcards and taking part in her Postcard Friendship Fridays, I was hooked. Postcards are such fun!
[…] Comments As an avid postcard collector I couldn’t miss the opportunity to take part in the Festival of Postcards. I have left it rather late, so I have pulled one of my favourite cards from my collection for my […]
Hi Evelyn :: I FINALLY finished my entry — which highlights the 19th-century steam side-wheeler, Mt. Washington, whose huge paddle wheels were driven by a single-cylinder steam engine. As usual, I also make mention of the connection of the Mt. Washington to my ancestors. Thank you for doing this!
Hi Evelyn !
Thanks for your comment on my blog. This carnival may be very nice, so I want to take part to it. On my blog, there is only front of postcards, but, especially for you, I’ll scan backs of some cards in few days.
Have a nice week-end !
I’m glad to hear it – and I’m not surprised because you were really ready for high school. You should go over to All Things Quebec to see what the new group is doing.
Tell all your friends!
[…] Last Saturday I came away with seven cards, which is more than usual, but it probably reflects the fact that I spent longer there than normal. Five of those cards have a family connection, which you will probably be seeing in the next couple of weeks. The other two I got because they appealed to me (places I have been walking) and they are also both possible contenders for the upcoming Festival of Postcards. […]
I added the Festival of Postcards widget to my blog a while ago. Just noticed that it is not updating with the correct current and future festivals. Is this happening on other blogs too? I will probably remove the widget if it keeps showing obsolete dates.
Thank you, Judy. The entry form seems to be working on and off. On certain days I’ve received multiple entries through the official form, while on other days I get messages like yours. For me the form always works but it’s possible that’s because I,m an administrator.
Hi Evelyn – It was a pleasure to get your comment about the orangutans post, and a pleasure also to have a chance to visit here and see what’s going on (which is an enormous amount of good things it looks like, and it is going to take me some serious time to peruse all this, for it is quite wonderful!).
I would be honored to have you include the post in your next Festival, thanks!
Looking forward to reading and learning from your great site here,
I entered the latest Carnival of Postcards (“white”) but did not receive an acknowledgment, so don’t know if the entry went through. I hear some of the Carnivals were having problems with this but of course I might have goofed up. Just wanted to let you know my entry is the latest post on my blog as of today. What a great interest you have aroused!

I just posted my “white” postcard ~~ and am on my way to follow the link to register officially for the festival. This is the first time I’ve used that submission form, so wish me luck! From other comments ahead of mine it appears that I should be looking for a registration confirmation.
I was researching Andre Mignier Lagace when I came across your website. What a fantastic job you have done. Your website provided me with some of the information that I was missing and now I have everything I need.
I would like to ask you to give me permission to use some of your images and information in my ancestry family tree? I will be sure to make reference to (image courtesy of: and your name). You deserve all of the credit for the hard work that you have done. Thank you for helping me and others.

Could you please contact me regarding the locomotion theme challenge. I have some cards that technically do NOT qualify as post cards, but, I feel are kinda interesting. Would like to discuss with you.
Hi, I’d like to get a 300dpi minimum scan of the postcard with the 1911 38-62 (Buffalo?) Pitts Thresher (Locomotive Theme Festival – 9th edition). It might be something that would be of interest to users of my web site BuffaloPitts.com. I hope to document the Buffalo Pitts Company et al someday, and the threshers and other implements aren’t always easy to find an image of (everyone always seems to photograph the steam traction engines instead of other implements). Thank you in advance! Sincerely, “NerdMaster Bri”
[…] a Comment The theme for the latest edition of the Festival of Postcards (hosted by Evelyn at A Canadian Family) is “Locomotion”. I don’t think there are any postcards in my collection that sum this up […]
