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, mines/quarries, nuclear power, ugly freeways, rain/rainy streets, 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. :`(

OMGoodness! I am dying over the April WW wish you sent me. This has to be my favorite pressed penny I've received now. Bigfoot on a milk carton! How cool is that? I also love the mini notebook you sent. Such an inspiring message and something we should all live by. Thank you so much for making my day!

Thank you for the plethora of pocket letter blanks from my Wonderful Wishes March wishlist! My pocket letters aren't that artistic either but I enjoy making them as RAKs and mail for chemo angel patients.
