About Me

Hello everybody, My name is Ingrid and I'm living in The Netherlands. I'm a very big fan of any kind of tea. And I'm a collector of Teatags. You know the little, most of the time, papers which are tide on a teabag. We call them teatags or tealabels. If anybody want to swap them with me I would be very happy. I also like to swap tea related things with all kind of people all over the world.

I also love to go on a vacation..... doesn't matter where. There are so many nice and beautiful places at this planet.

For the rest I love so many things......

I love to.... do nice things with my lovely family, do nice things with my lovely friends, go shopping and of course buy to much, read a book (I prefer with a good cup of tea), go to the movies, walk on the beach in the sun, speaking with my friends on the telephone or msn for hours and hours, go out for dinner with family and friends or make something myself at home.

If you want to send me something extra... please think about my teatag collection and I also adore little memo´s, post-it papers, stickers, used postage stamps, postcards and other things where you can write on and write with.

** Please note **

I always sent out my packages before the "send by date" but since I'm living in Europe sometimes it takes ages to arrive in the USA or Asia.

Till now all my packages arrived by my swappartners, but some of them took more then 2 months :-((

If you didn't receive anything, please PM me, I did my best to sent it, but what happens after I put it in the mailbox is, unfortunately, not up to me.......

And if you didn't get any rating from me, it should mean that the package didn't arrive yet, because I always rate within 2 days after arriving. You can always PM me to be sure.

Thank you all for the understanding :-)

Favorite Music

I like all kind of music. Can be pop, can be rock, can be opera. I just have to be in the mood for a kind of music and then it will do.

Favorite Books

I love to read books, all kind of books, written in Dutch, English or German. Doesn't matter for me. I like novells, thrillers, chicklits everyhting is ok as long as there are letters in it. Because I lived in Turkey for 5 years I love to read books about Turkey and because I was in China I like to read books about China. I also love books in which people are travelling.

Favorite Movies

I like to go to the movies, also with movies my taste is very wide. I like all kind of movies: romantic, drama etc etc. But I don't like movies about war or science fiction movies.

Favorite Tea

I´m in many teaswaps, because I´m a tea-addict. For me it really doesn´t matter what kind of tea you are sending me. Actually I like all kinds except strawberry flavoured, but that is my mums favoured tea. So no problem if you send it to me. I can make her happy ;-))

Because I´m a teatagcollector I would really appreciate it if the teas you are sending me have a different teatag. Can be teas from the same brand, but a different tag would be great. Thanks for making my collection grow!!

Other things I like

I'm a quit a creative person. As written above I'm collecting teatags and most of my creative time is being spend by collecting them and put them in albums.

I also still love to write letters to my friends. I know that we are in 2009 now, but I still love it to receive real mail on paper :-) Of course I'm also sending emails and I speak with friends on msn or facebook, but people can make me so happy with a nice handwritten letter or postcard.

I like to receive

Everything is welcome, doesn't matter what you want to send. I always want to put something extras in the envelope. I put in the things which I would like to receive also.

I prefer to get my envelope "stamped" with a real postage stamp and not that barcode-thing. I really love to get the real stamps from all over the world because they are always so nice.

If you are going to send me a postcard, I would love it if it is a pc with the name of your country, state or hometown. Since I´m on Swap-bot I´m a postcard collector also, and I love to see other countries and places. And I would love to receive it in an envelope, because it is so difficult to take of the stamps from the postcards. So in an envelope it is easier to keep the stamps and also there is less risk for damaging the postcards. But if it is not possible, I'm very happy with a "naked" pc also.

I love, teatags, teabags, stickers (doesn't matter what kind or what's on it), postcards, stationairy things, little papers to write on, balloons, used postage stamps (on / off paper, everything is ok and any theme is ok), Sudoku, word search puzzles, anything with a foreign language (for me English is also a foreign language), small coins from all over the world, chocolate, cookies, anything sweet, chewing gum, little gift bags, little presents, little toys..... you can make me happy with almost everything.

Things I'm collecting are:

  • teatags

  • used postage stamps, on or off paper, any them, any size

  • postcards, especially showing a place, country etc

  • MAP Postcards

  • money coins from all countries

I don't like to receive

I'm not a difficult person, and I always appreciate a gift, but of course there are some things which I don't like so much.....

For example: I hate lipstick or lipgloss, my ears are very sensitive so I can only wear silver earrings, I'm not into tarot, reading cards, horoscope, satan and the devil and that kind of things.

But if you send some of above things I will still appreciate it... at least... every gift is a present and I love presents......

Thank you.....

Thanks to all of you who were reading my profile.

Thanks to all of you who are sending me nice postcards and packages.

Thanks to all for understanding that packages from Europe sometimes need "ages" to arrive in The USA or Asia.

Thanks to all of you who are giving me rates and hearts.
