About Me

I am a HUGE lover of snail mail and have all kinds of exciting mail stuff going on. They know me at the Post Office. :)

My interests are all over the place. I love all art, all history and all science. I think that the three are related to each other. I read a lot and write letters, postcards, send greeting cards and make mail art. I like journals of all kinds.

I suppose that I am not very whimsical. Not a teddy bear person. I also kind of hate geese with flower wreaths around their necks and cute little cows. My tastes do tend to be a bit edgy. I love color and abstract paintings. Walls with peeling paint layers fascinate me. I will admit that I have actually made purchases in the grocery store because the packaging is really interesting and I know I can make something out of it later. And I do!

Reading is a passion and I like all kinds of books including books for children and young adults. Reading anything related to any kind of history, science or art is great. I also like literary novels and mysteries. I haven't read a lot of science fiction or fantasy but I 'm open to it. The only things I'm not very interested in are trashy romance and cheap poorly written thriller garbage or religious books.

I am pretty easy to please. I do not expect anyone to create something that is tailor made for me. Express yourself when picking out cards or putting stuff together. I like most things and I am very open to what you want to send me as long as it is not a religious pitch or political.

Postcards I Love-

Art cards of any kind

Artists

Any religious building or sacred space

Children's literature

Anything book related

Funny/bizarre

Map cards

Holiday cards

Botanical prints

Scientific stuff

Historical sites or people

Interiors

Anything that you like and want to share

A note about postcards- I love postcards but I only really love the "naked" ones. That means NO envelope. They travel naked through the post. I love the stamp on the card and a message and the way they get a little banged up. I don't want pristine ones in other words. I doubt that I will ever sign up for a swap involving other than naked cards but I just want to make sure that everyone has the same definition.

Comment: This was a great Florida PC you sent - it showed so much of the key things about Florida. I hope you didn't get hit too hard from Hurricane Irma - gads the hurricanes this year have just done so much damage and then the wildfires in California --- so much damage but hopefully recovery will continue and better things will come. Take care and thanks again for the great Florida PC ~~

Comment: I love this Wizard of Oz card. I am so jealous that you got this. Did you end up with the set? I saw it for sale once, but I haven't been able to track it down again. I hope all is well
