Grauballe Man Bog Body!

on November 27, 2012

These two very contrasting cards came from Denise in Canada, although the first actually shows Grauballe Man, a bog-body in Denmark dating to AD 300. Interestingly, the bog-body card is actually a vintage card, pre-written and posted from Denmark stamp still intact) in 1984. I just love the image though! I had a real fascination with bog-bodies at university! Denise has also kindly enclosed the second card which she’s printed herself. She tells me that her favourite names are Serenity, Hope, Patience and Joy – the names of her grand-daughters. How lovely! I love names, so it’s great to hear about ones she likes. She’s also used a fantastic zodiac stamp on the envelope. Wonderful swap!
