RR RAS cards / NSFW: Nudity


I joined a new RR on FB; this RR is all about receiving cards that we can't bare to send away back. The idea is so that those cards you like too much will be written and travelled instead of staying blank in your collection. I liked the idea so much I joined twice! These are some of the cards I received from the other members as a bonus.

I've had this card in my favourites for a bit, so happy to finally have it! I got to send off another one just like it back to the sender.

It's great to get so many of these cards! I also found out there are 15 of these in total and got nearly all of them.

Last I checked Moose are non-permitted items, yes lol Since this card is an extra, maybe I should build one?

Shine On
One of a set of 8 postcards from the CD Boxed Set "Shine On"

An interesting card to say the least. It makes you wonder how they come up with this one lol

One of the first cards has returned! I bought this card at a really cute store that sold Asian goods in a more trendy part of town. I was surprised that there's a kind of washi tape with this exact image on it.

Magician E. Chambly and spirit ca. 1890

Another weird card that I've had for a long time, of course I didn't want to get rid of it, so it was perfect for this RR!

Another fun card that I didn't want to get rid of. I had various copies and this was the final one left. I keep thinking that this persons cards were featured somewhere but I can't place my finger on where.

A fun and thick card that a friend bought for me on an outing. We bought it at a card store in the new Bow Building downtown. At the time a lot of the stores on the 2nd floor weren't even open!

A rather spooky cover for a comic book, I wouldn't mind reading the original where this cover was.

Salvador Dali (1904-1989). Disappearing Bust of Voltaire, 1941. Oil on canvas, 18 1/4 x 21 3/4 inches.

I can't remember how I got this card, but I'm glad I got to keep this funky card by Dali :D

Plague Doctors are super awesome! They wear all black and carry sticks! They cover their faces with long, pointy bird masks and red goggles! If you dress up as one for Halloween, you'll probably win a gift certificate or something! 

Ah the Plague Doctors, such strange costumes and yet 'effective' at the time or so they thought. I wore a plague doctor mask for Halloween once and never won anything :(

Manuel Ocampo / The Philippines b. 1965 / 1995 (from 'The Corrections: 20 years of self-loathing and intestinal mishaps' series) 2012 / Oil, synthetic polymer paint on digital print on canvas

There's just so many things to see in this painting, it's so cool and chaotic!

Thanks for scribbling on my stamps as always CP...

I got this card at the Edmonton mini meet that I helped organize; wooden postcards are so cool! I don't see enough of these honestly.

Racing Current, 88.2 x 176.4 cm, 1986, by Wu Guanzhoug

I liked the composition of this card too much to part with it, another thing is, it's quite large. Not sure what I would have written on it to be honest.

I didn't hold on to this card for long until I sent it away...to come back to me XD I could never get rid of an ostrich card!

Now if only ostrich stamps were a thing

My second card from the same postcard book that came back. Now that I have 4 in total, I wonder how many are in the full book.

Jewish organist of St. Vitus Cathedral

One of the cards I picked up on my trip to Prague. What was cool about this museum was that you could get multiple types of cards with greetings in different languages and the that the image was different in each one too.

This is the last card I got back, in total 15 were sent out.

423rd Tag

A Susan Seddon Boulet Bestiary
The Bear was sacred to the Finno-Ugric people. In alchemy it was related to the instincts and to all initial stages. It was regarded as a lunar animal and was associated with Diana. The bear was deeply respected in N. American myth as a source of great strength, power, and healing.

Some awesome cards from the Penny pinchers tag arrived again, I can never get sick of that tag.

"The tremendous brightness of light in space came as a surprise to me... It was so dazzling I forgot I was looking through a dense filter. When I lifted the filter (strictly speaking, this is not allowed, but the temptation was too great) the sun shone so brightly on my right that it was impossibly to look in that direction."
