About Me

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 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.

Beach Music

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.

Comment: Thank you for the Sylvia Earle card, Joana. She’s one of my heros. Would you believe I got another card from that women scientist collection in the mail today too! I read the book from which the images were taken & was blown away by the illustrations, so I was delighted when the postcards came out. Your fish stamp was a good match-up too.

Comment: Many thanks for the pretty envelope and lovey postage - and oh, what sweet surprises inside! I absolutely love the 2 postcards: the elegant giraffe card and the amazing Mickey Mouse card! And what a terrific vintage Coke order form! Fun stamps, too, in the little glassine envelope. And what delightful presentation of my surprises -- wrapped in the delicate tissue with the wonderful note tucked under a nose!!! You made me smile with great joy!

Comment: Thank you for the postcard:) On the August the first I was on vacation in the Tropics in my homeland. It was super hot and while eating sweet water ices I really enjoyed the tempeatures:) While you had a relaxing Summer holiday, I went all ways to enjoy my vacation and settle things for my remigration. Now I am back in the Netherlands and I am sooooo tired;( I didn't took a moment to relax while on vacation. But the SUN is shining here, so I still enjoy these warm days.

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!

Gatzcat on Jul 17, 2018:

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!!

Hey Joana! Thanks for the Pc roulette swap (august round edition!) I loved the card! I feel all honored to be your pick for the bonus card ;) ! If I could, I'd send you a heart! So I'll leave you with the only sentence I know in German (because it makes me laugh the visual is so telling!) : Aus dem ruder geraten ! Cheers, H. @PapierMirabelle

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!
