What shall I tell you about me?! I love postcards and handpicked stories. Surprise me with a little anecdote of the everyday life. Combined with a picture on the back and a stunning stamp up in the right corner. Sounds perfect to me!
By the way I love everything from before the 1960s. I am always on the hunt for vintage curiosities like snapshots of everyday life, newspaper comic strips, popular science charts, as well as adverts, cigarette cards or stamps. Oh and I am fan of gentlemen in suits, cocktails and pin ups, which make me smile.
At this point I have to admit a few DISLIKES: Touristic view postcards (monuments & architecture = boring) - QR-code stamps - Zazzle - Disney - Hello Kitty - Zentagle - religious or spooky themes - Scrapbook paper - please not for me. Sorry, I dont want to sound complaining.
Whatelse?! If there is time I dive into books. How to describe my taste? Imagine Stella Gibbons meets Jane Gardam for a coffee and from time to time people like Erich Kästner or Laurie Penny joining the conversation. Sometimes I just buy a book, because of the great cover. Oh and I have a weak spot for magazines. I definitly cant leave the newsagent without buying the latest issue of Frankie, Surfgirl and Prestige.
Another thing I really enjoy is going to the cinema. You wonder what I have seen recently? Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Spy who dumped me...Favorite movies?! Breakfast at Tiffany's, It's a wonderful Life, Mary Poppins...a bit newer...Life of Walter Mitty, The Age of Adaline and Shape of Water.
Well, I hope I could give you a foggy hint about myself. I am looking forward to hearing from you and even more to getting to know you. Smiles, Joana
PS.: Still unsure what to send? Well here are some more hints: black coffee with a dash of hot milk - gelato - tomato sauce - washi tape - ephemera - Fashion - Film Noir - Art Deco - La Dolce Vita - risque racy humor - surprises.
