Welcome to my profile

22/03/2019 WOW,
Today I received a card from a swap, postal stamp mail date 18 September 2018. I wonder where this card has been on its journey!

I would love to hear from someone who has been to or has postcards of photos they could swap of two places I hope to visit Harbin or the Vietnam Wall Memorial

I have a rating 1 if you do not receive from me please try and contact me before rating, the mailman works in mysterious ways, sometimes the snail in snailmail is a little slow...

My profile pic is Cubbie, she likes to take things off my little table and to steal my pens, she hasn't learnt to write so I guess I will write my own letters and postcards!

About Me

Hello My name is Teresa and I am from Australia.
I hope to put a smile on my swap partners face. I promise to send my swaps and rate swaps I receive as soon as possible and I like to give and receive comments. I love to find something that is not a bill or advertisement in my mailbox.
If you don't receive or are not happy with my swap please let me know and I will resend.

I like boating, reading, cooking, my crafts, driving and traveling.
I love live theatre and shows.
I enjoy going to the movies and dining or for coffee with my favorite people, and having time with my family and children. I am a full time carer and also work casual.
I have a feathered friend named Freddy and he is a galah & a kitty named Cubbie, my animals wander into my backyard over the years and have adopted me..

Favorite postcards and Mail in

I love collecting postcards from all over the world and I think it is nice to see some of the world through cards and pictures that I cannot see in person.

I like history and learning about people and places so I like postcards with a little about you or where you live or the picture on the postcard.

I am sure I will love any card that someone takes the time to choose and send me, but some of my favorites are
* Favorite countries China, Russia
* Snow scenes ( in the Sunshine state it never snows)
* Recipe cards
* I like historical places - churches - monuments & historical buildings. Universities or museums
* Something native to your country
native dress-people-culture (what do people in your country wear), any events or attractions (is there some occasion or event special to where you live).
* Favorite animals - whales, dolphins, dogs, bears.
* Night views, Ocean views
* Ad cards - some favorites are entertainment cards - movie - theater - live entertainment or something from my favorites, scifi or fantasy
* Cards with a cause

I am not really interested in deckled cards or homemade, I know some people like them but they're just not my favorites.

Please don't send me any type of
plant, edible, fragrant, herbal, spice.

My postal service has changed a lot and mail doesn't get collected or delivered every day and the service seems to be slower domestic and international than it used to be.

  • whales, buddhas, dragons, wolves
  • movies/tv dvd, books, recipes

  • Things to use to decorate my mail, crafts or cards
  • Stickers with something with my favorite things on, and also I like the little ones to decorate postcards* I would like some little ones with food for my recipe cards or people (I don't see many of these locally).
  • I like cute things that make you go oohh or arrr, trinkets and dangles or something glitter

Comment: Oh my goodness Teresa, I am so so SORRY that I had not rated you before now - I actually thought that I had and I feel so bad that I hadn't. I'm just glad I happened on the swap and checked to see and here I was doing this all because I was checking to see who did and who didn't send their swaps out in the ones that I hosted. Anyways, Your email was awesome and fun to read and I loved all the pics you put in it to separate to separate the paragraphs, it made it fun and easy to read. Have a wonderful day! (Hugs)
