About Me

Hello from Berlin! I am a wife and mother of two grown children. Since 2015 I have been retired.

Hobbies and Interests

  • Photography: Architecture, landscapes, lightmoods, reflections and close-ups belong to my favorite photo subjects.
  • Books: Especially murder mystery and crime novels. Favorite authors among others: Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Mary Higgins Clark, Donna Leon, Charlotte Link.
  • Film/TV: Midsomer Murders/Inspector Barnaby, Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Father Brown, Sherlock Holmes (the old series).
  • Postcards, all kinds. At the moment I try to enlarge my collection of map cards and chronicle cards (Chronikkarten).
  • Seasonal cards, especially for Christmas (postcards and folded cards). All kinds of Christmas themes are welcome.
  • Mail art, handmade envelopes, handwritten letters.
  • Airmail envelopes and airmail labels.
  • Stamps. It would be very nice if you could put stamps on your envelope or postcard instead of postage labels, if possible.
  • ATCs. I discovered them here on Swap-bot.
  • Quotes / words of wisdom.

Some Favorites

  • Seasons: autumn and winter, Christmas time with its joyful spirit.
  • Flowers: tulips and red poppies.
  • Colors: blue, teal, turquoise and orange, but I'm fine with any other color, too.

Not for Me

Please avoid sending me food and drink items. Thank you!

Comment: I absolutely LOVE the vintage PC, especially because it was actually mailed and with a message. In French, and partially obscured with the postmark, but it is wonderful! such beautiful handwriting, too. Thank you SO much!
