My Postcard Database

About Me

I'm a literature nerd and I live in Washington state.

Here's me, in my final form as a map,

mapped

Most things excite me in some way. I love birds, maps, the ocean, trains, westerns, deserts, and wigs. I'm a skeptic and I like discussing world religions, science, quackery, and freethinking.

My hobbies include photography, sculpture, bookbinding, reading, writing, finding new music, cooking, gardening, arranging and tending to my many succulents and cacti, drawing, and playing videogames and card games.

birds on a line

Here is my parrot, Max:

max

He says "I love you", "Hey baby", "Oh chico", "Stop screaming!" and other things.

Likes

I'll love anything involving:

  • maps, anywhere is fine, even ones you made up,

  • birds (especially: quail, parrots, budgies, kakapo, birds of paradise, songbirds, robins - English and American, crows, kiwis, pretty much any bird) - pictures of them, tiny figurines, stuffed animals, cards, postcards, wrapping paper, stickers, washi tape, anything with birds; I'm absolutely, completely nuts about birds,

  • pretty papers/vellum/stuff I can write on for junk journaling,

  • stickers (nice ones for journaling/cards),

birds

I Collect:

  • round 1" pins, especially with maps or birds on them,

  • foreign coins, especially pre-Euro ones,

  • used stamps, especially from places far away and countries that don't exist anymore,

  • strange and unusual maps (aeronautical ones are my favs),

  • postcards - See below for my country and state postcard collection spreadsheet - please send me anything that's still missing! ,

  • playing cards - the kind where each card face is different. If you have incomplete decks and are willing to send single cards, I collect Aces of Spades and Jacks of Spades,

  • your top 5 go-to jokes (I'm not easily offended and I love nerdy ones too. Puns are also great. Anything,)

  • a landscape of your mind (I've received a handful of these in the few years I've had this up. They are the most reliably interesting thing a person can make for me.)

Postcards

I'm pretty detailed and meticulous with my postcard collecting, so please check out my database if you have a moment: My New and Improved Postcard Collection

If you have anything that's still shaded in hot pink, please send it to me! (I don't even care if it's already written on) If you have a card of higher quality than the one I have listed, I'd appreciate that, too.

A huge thank you to those who have helped me and those who are always on the look-out for me! I appreciate it so much.

In addition to those place-specific cards, I also love the following: street scenes, maps, national parks, birds, the desert, trains, vintage roadside motels/foreign hotels, tornadoes/crazy weather, geologic abnormalities, mills, aerial lifts/gondola lifts/funiculars, indigenous people, local costumes, interesting landscapes. I also love strange, photographic portrait postcards.

Dislikes

  • not crazy about multi-view postcards unless they're from a hard-to-find country.

  • postcards sent in flimsy envelopes that arrive with bent corners. :`(

Thank you for the Wonderful Wishes birthday wish and goodies! The Pacific Coast Highway runs right through my home town. I do miss it, but the mountains and desert here are both beautiful! Thanks for thinking of me!

sabbysteg on Feb 15, 2019:

Thanks for the Feb Wonderful Wishes wish! I loved the card! :)

Thank you for the awesome Orcas postcard! I've never seen Cluny Brown. I do highly recommend the old movie Harvey. Very funny!

Wonderful Wishes

Thank you so much for the Lillian Gilbreth postcard (AATW Nov) for my collection! I love this series and am thrilled to have a new one, thanks for thinking of me and granting my wish!

MSturgill87 on Nov 21, 2018:

Thank you so much for the awesome acrylic stamps via AATW November!

stephiedee on Nov 20, 2018:

Thanks for the stars for my AATW wishlist! I was just looking yesterday to see if I had any secret-stashed somewhere (nope) so yay for perfect timing.

Glad the paper stuffs arrived. 😊👍👍

LahDeeDah on Mar 12, 2018:

Oops! I should have given you a heads up about the secret compartment in the candy box. Glad you didn't throw it away! My coffee from you is now history. I enjoyed it a lot. Just opened my first package of Camber from Bellingham. It's good. Thanks again for contributing to my newest obsession. :-)

Thanks for the funny Blind Valentine for my AATW Feb wish! HAHA I laughed at picturing you rolling your eyes at the stereotypical woman owning tons of shoes. I admit I do own tons of shoes, but they are more along the lines of workout shoes, birkenstocks and more utilitarian things. No way could I ever subject my Achilles tendons to stupid high heels. I love how it is a birthday card, next month I'm wishing for blind birthday cards! HA!

susieq11 on Feb 14, 2018:

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the darling deer stuffed animal!!!! It's so so so sweet, I love it! Even the heart tissue paper made me smile. That was sooooooo nice of you, and you made me so happy!!!! XOXO AATW February

kiddomerriweather on Feb 14, 2018:

Thank you for the Blind Valentine Card for my February AATW Wishlist. I love the picture on the front of the card with the Corgis and Sharks. Happy Anniversary to you, too, my love. LOL! Thanks a million!
