About Me

----- A Note: At the moment the post takes a very long time to arrive, especially to destinations outside of Europe. -----

Hi there.

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 fashion magazines with stunning adverts, matchbox labels or cigarette cards and 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 postcards really not my taste - Zazzle & Cieher retro postcards - Disney - Hello Kitty - Zentagle or Color-In - religious or spooky themes - scrapbooking & craft supplies - please not for me. Sorry, I dont want to sound complaining.

Beach Music

Whatelse?! If there is time I dive into books. How to describe my taste? Imagine Sarah Waters meets Erich Kรคstner for a coffee and from time to time people like Rachel Rhys or Joan Weng joining the conversation about the roaring 20s and WW2. Sometimes I just buy a book, because of the great cover. Oh and I have a weak spot for magazines. I definitely cant leave the newsagent without buying the latest issue of The Economist 1843 and Novum (Design).

Another thing I really enjoy is going to the cinema. You wonder what I have seen recently? The Hustle, Rocketman...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 The Aftermath.

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 - cherry or apple pie - tomato sauce - washi tape - ephemera - Fashion & Design - book & magazine covers (Vanity Fair, New Yorker, Vogue, Penguin) - vintage natural science - Alfons Mucha & Art Deco - naughty Pin Up - risque racy humor - surprises.

Comment: I love your postcard, such a beautiful picture and the sparkly mint green texture is so different to anything I have ever received on a postcard before. I like the quote, I've had this in a few swaps, I think something is trying to tell me to wander, he he. Thank you. Em. x

Comment: I love this postcard! I remember that we watched some of it in class in high school; although I can't think of which class it was. I was scared of birds for several days afterword! I definitely need to watch it in it's entirety. Thanx again!

Hi Joana. I see you've been playing PC Roulette like crazy! Thanks so much for the lovely John Ryan illustration card. And how nice to discover a new museum! I hope you enjoy fall as much as summer. Best wishes, David

Happy Birthday!

Thank you! I absolutely love the postcard you sent. I even do like the flies. Never would I say this, but they're cute on their. But I don't think flies are cute in real life.

I guess I really am a winner. I got two extra from the PC Roulette Comeback July 2018 swap.

Thanks again!!

Hi Joana, thank you for the surprise Postcard Roulette card! I just had to pull out a magnifying glass to see what comics the man was reading. Are you ready? Peanuts, Andy Capp, Blondie, & Prince Valiant! =) Great stamps, too--thanks again!
