Fairytale bear card from Norway

Norwegian Kittelsen card

This card came from someone with whom I exchanged postcards via Postcrossing. She likes pen palling, we have a lot of interests in common, so lo and behold, we're writing letters now. Seee??? You CAN get pen pals from Postcrossing!

She sent this lovely card featuring work by Th. Kittelsen. It has a very magical feel to it.

Back of Kittelsen bear card

On the back of the card, you can read a bit more about Kittelsen (and, if you have a Flickr account, you can view large to read it even better). I wish I could translate the title - bear king? Something like that?

Cat sticker from Norway

She included a lovely kitty sticker on the envelope, too.


  1. how nice yes I also got a pen pal from post crossing . That is just awesome and glad you shared this with us . I love it .

  2. I love both art, cats and polar bears. So this card really speaks to me! It is terrific! Thanks for sharing it Ilona. When Will I get another letter from you by the way? It is been quite a while since I got a letter from you.

  3. Tascha, please be patient. I have a lot of letters to write, and there are still many in front of yours in my pile.

  4. Reminds me very strongly of that great East of the Sun West of the Moon story.

  5. It reminds of the Golden Compus Movie.

  6. The accepted title of this work seems to be The Polar Bear King. Surely somebody has this work on a postcard to send me! ;)

  7. Hi,

    Just wondering...did you receive my letter?
    Haven't been on your blog for quite a while: our computer has been crashed and now luckily he is fine again :-)

    Have a nice day!

    Hugs,Marianne from the Netherlands

  8. Marianne - Yes, there is a letter in my pile from a Marianne in the NL. I get a lot of mail and it takes me quite a while to respond to each one.

  9. I'm glad it arrived!
    I was just curious ;-)

    Will wait patiently for your answer!
