About Me

I am a wife and mother of two adult children. Since 2015 I have been retired. I love the sea, especially the rough charm of the North Sea.

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), Death in Paradise.

  • Postcards, all kinds. Favorites include: Map cards, city views (day/night), typical houses of your country, shop windows, lighthouses, windmills, landscapes, snow and snowmen, rain, umbrellas, mailboxes, books/reading. I love Snoopy, Pettersson & Findus, Atelier Nouvelles Images, The New Yorker and many more.

  • Seasonal cards, especially for Christmas (postcards and folded cards). All kinds of Christmas themes are welcome. A Christmas stamp on the card or envelope would be great, too.

  • Halloween postcards and spooky films on Halloween.

  • 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: teal, turquoise and orange, red and green or iceblue for Christmas, but I'm fine with every other color, too.

Hi, Just letting you know I just mailed the postcards for the August PTG WTA today. So sorry for the delay, I forgot until now. I included an extra postcard for the inconvenience. I hope they get to you soon.

Sehr vielen dank für deine 'happy mail'!

I thoroughly enjoyed it -- though I was a little confused at first how you knew it was okay to write in German... LOL you found out on my PX profile! Thank you so much for your heart-warming letter and hand-picked prizes. You're a darling!
