About Me

Please note - I DO NOT celebrate Halloween!!

20 March 2017 - I am so heartbroken. My one fur baby, Snoopy died yesterday morning after he was poisoned. :(

SWAPS - I live in South Africa and swaps from here do take a bit longer than 30 days to get to other swappers in other countries. Please take note that mail from South Africa to other parts of the world can take between 6 to 8 weeks to arrive. If it is frustrating for you that it takes so long....imagine how I feel.

RATINGS BY ME - If I haven't rated you it is because I haven't received the swap yet. I always rate when I received the swap! If it was an email swap that you have sent - the reason I haven't rated - because I haven't logged onto my email yet and haven't read the email yet!

RATING ME - Before you give me a 1 rating for not having received a swap from me, PLEASE send me a private message to let me know that you haven't received the swap. I am sure that you would also like to be informed that a swap did not arrive instead of receiving a 1 with no communication. I NEVER HAVE and NEVER WILL flake on a swap!! .

My Instagram https://www.instagram.com/marieantoinettepelser

My full name is Marie-Antoinette (yip like Queen Marie-Antoinette of the French Revolution), but everyone calls me Antoinette.


I'm 41 and live in South Africa in a town Brakpan in the Gauteng Province. I enjoy meeting new penpals from all over the world. I enjoy writing to my Circle of World Wide Friends (penpals). I'm a Christian. I enjoy spending time with my family. My only kids are my twin furbaby boys they are fox terriers called Murdock and Snoopy. My tweeling

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy doing scrapbooking, beading, crocheting, knitting, baking, cooking, postcrossing, writing (stories, petry and letters), listening to music, playing hidden object or mystery computer games, photography and playing with my dog. I also enjoy the colour-in for adults pages and have a few colour-in books that I enjoy as it relaxes me.

Two blankets I crochet.




I collect postcards, bookmarks, stationery, memo paper, note cards, butterflies, dolphins, angels, fairies, books, LPs, CDs, nice pictures or photos, pens, pencils, candles, books, serviettes, fridge magnets and keyrings.

Please don't send me the following:
- nothing gory with blood oozing out everywhere
- nothing vulgar or full of swearing and cursing
- nothing with nudity/porn/erotica
- no Tarot cards or anything relating to it
- no incense or strong smells

I'm not interested in it so keep it for other swappers:

Favorite Music

I enjoy music that won't burst my eardrums. I'm not into rap or jazz.I enjoy classical, instrumental (panflute, flute, saxophone, guitar, piano), 60s, 70s, 80s. I listen to a wide variety of music.

Favorite Books

I love to read. My parents and I go to the library every second week to exchange books. So, as you can see - I get my love for reading from my parents.
Some of my favorite authors include Karen Kingsbury, Francine Rivers, Jodi Picoult, JK Rowling, Stephanie Meyer, CS Lewis, Dan Brown, Dee Henderson, Clive Cussler, Agatha Christie, Stephen King, Wilbur Smith, Oscar Wilde, Sidney Sheldon, Charles Dickens, Roald Dahl, Jane Austen, Enid Blyton, Dean Koontz, Nora Robers, James Patterson, Beatrix Potter, David Baldacci, Paulho Coelho, Ian Fleming; Catherine Cookson - and many, many more.
I enjoy fiction, non-fiction, adventure, mystery, detective, Christian
NO vulgar, porn or erotica.

Favorite Television

Murder mysteries, Investigation discovery, CSI - all of them, NCIS, Bones, Nature, Medical Mysteries, Law & Order (All of them).


I like receiving any type of postcard as long as it isn't anything discusting and rude. I don't mind if the postcard are sent in an envelope or stamped and written on - whatever the swap requires.

About swaps

I always send my swaps out. If you haven't received my swap to you, please let me know before rating me. I always go out of my way to make sure that my swaps are sent out in time - if for any reason I cannot sent it out in time, I will let you know - but I WILL send the swap requirements.

When sending me something in a swap - please DO NOT send me anything with naked people on. I am really not interested in it. You can keep that for others.
