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, Lewis, 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.

  • 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!
