SWAP HOSTS:

I have requested Admin to merge any duplicate account I may have. I had an excellent account (5.000) rating with the same name many years ago. Nobody is able to locate it. If you have any questions, please PM.

THINGS ABOUT ME: Hello! I live in Michigan and love it, even the winters.

MUSIC: Classical, New Age, and Easy Listening, but I listen to all types.

BOOKS: I read about 85 books a year, mostly series mysteries such as Anne Perry’s Victorian mysteries, Peter Robinson, J. D. Robb, and many British detective series. My favorite recent book was The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman.

MOVIES: Happy endings like Gifted, McFarland USA, Rudy, Letters to Juliette, and dark suspenseful thrillers like Suburbia, Sanctum, and Perfect Getaway.

TELEVISION: I rarely watch TV, but occasionally watch a series such as Downton Abbey or The Crown. My favorite series were King of Queens and Cold Case.

CRAFTS: Quilting (I’m currently working on a project making blankets and quilts for homeless vets, foster kids and pregnancy resource centers), crocheting dishcloths, making my own body and home care products with essential oils....painting with acrylics (abstracts or just playing with color)...making greeting cards. I also dabble in photography and am finally taking a class.

I am a retired preschool teacher (two-year-olds) and still sub on occasion. I am married to a retired professor and we love going on road trips. In past summers we took Route 66 to California, toured Yosemite NP and all the major National parks out west. This is a good way to collect postcards!

I love to make vintage-style ATCs. I often have a theme with a little twist of eyebrow-raising innuendo. I’m up for private ATC swaps of that nature.

POSTCARD LIKES: Where you live.....Anything strange or unusual...Out-of-the ordinary places, especially small town or village where you live...reproduction vintage especially ones with LARGE LETTER cities, ....day or night city skylines. Tourist type, especially if they are of uncommon places. Unusual animals are fun to receive.

I prefer not handmade unless swap is specifically for homemade PCs. I will do private swaps for handmade postcards.

Real photo please, if possible, instead of drawings or cartoons.

I would like my postcards NAKED unless the swap requires an envelope.

I almost always give hearts because I truly appreciate the effort that goes into a swap. I spend time and effort on every swap I send, even the lowly postcard, to try and make it something you will enjoy or will make you smile

I’m puzzled by silent 5s and silent hearts. To choose not to comment says more about the rater than about what I have sent.

DISLIKES: None, really. I’m not picky. Actually I like nice Zazzle and printed postcards.

COLORS: Love colors and colorful things. Blacks and grays are cool also. Pale pink will make me super happy. I would most likely love and use anything you send.

GENERAL THEMES I LOVE: squirrels...sloths...goats...chickens...gnomes... flowers...birds...benches...chairs...windows...doors, lighthouses...landscapes

TEAS: Any kind or brand. A swapper sent me Peach Pie tea which was awesome, and I haven’t been able to find it. English Breakfast is also a favorite. I’ll try any tea.

LITTLE THINGS: Seasonal or holiday themes (any time of year). Seasonal stickers, unused postcards, notecards

I will never flake and I rate as soon as I receive your mail. I use a spreadsheet to keep everything straight.

My mail is often picked up as late as 7:30 pm, so the postmark on my mail date may show the following day. Personally I really don’t bother searching for a mail date. I’m just happy it arrived

Thank all of you great swappers for your nice comments and hearts. You make my day!

Comment: Thanks for the beautiful Siberian PC! It all looks so unspoiled! We had a short September "summer." It only got up to 70 degrees a couple times! Right now it is supposed to be blowing 47 K out there and it is dead calm! "The calm before the storm!" Hugs from Alaska, Sherry

Comment: Thank you so much for the card, decorated envelope and Halloween sticker sheets. Very, very cute. I enjoyed hearing about your porch decorating. I love decorating my porch for the holidays, but Halloween is my most favorite. Sadly, I don't have any trick or treaters since moving out in the country. So, I just participate in our town's Halloween parade, and pass out candy during those festivities. Happy Halloween and autumn to you too. Thanks so much.

Comment: I love the New York City pc! Just so happened that I received a Postcrossing PC today too by the same printing company! Just a different view and says POSTCARD FROM NEW YORK CITY on the written side too. Crazy huh? I love your list and the verb NAB is great. I’d say you’re a serious booklover given your lottery purchase idea! Don’t books smell wonderful? Happy Swaps!

Thank you for taking the time to send Grayson a card. He loved seeing his name on the mail & was super, duper happy when he saw the $2 bill. He says it is good luck everytime he gets one. We loved your festive decorated envelope too. Happy Halloween & take care!

I received the beachy PC, thank you :) Also, I was informed there's someone in custody so here's hoping it won't ever happen again!
