This card is amazing :-). In the background you can see the Notre-Dame Cathedral. Construction of the building began in 1163 during the reign of Louis VI. During 1250–1345 remaining elements of the cathedral were completed. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, and it is among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass serve to contrast it with earlier Romanesque architecture.

New washi tapes

I have bought some new washi tapes to my collection. They have arrived to me from China, because I got them from AliExpress ;-). They were travelling for some time, but, finally, they are with me ;-). I chose four thin and two thick tapes. Tapes are as nice as I expected. Only one of them wasn't cut well, but when I sticked in on the postcard, it looked fine :-).

Storks are very popular birds in Poland. They are known as a symbol of our country :-). Stamps showing horses from the Janów Podlaski Stud are beautiful! :-) . Some time ago I have visited the Janów Podlaski Stud, which was established in 1817 and it is an oldest state stud farm in Poland. The old buildings in the stud are impressive! Worth seeing are historic stud buildings 'Zegarowa' (1848) and 'Czołowa' (1841) which were built according to Henryk Marconi design.
