About Me

I am back from hospital, trying to finish rating, sorry for the delay. Hello from Germany. I am Inge, 66, married to the nicest man on Earth. We both don't smoke so our home is smoke-free (for those who are allergic) but we have a dog. I was a teacher but am retired. I have two adult kids and a dog. By now I have three grandchildren, Marlene (2010), Lucia (2012) and finally Erik (2015). Marlene is a second grader already and Lucia will start her first school year in August 2018 and she is already very excited. We just bought her school bag for her birthday in April.

I always send my swaps. Sometimes a bit late but I then contact the person I have to send to. The reason is that I can't drive my car at the moment and have to ask the helping hands who come to our house to post my mail. In case you dont get your swap, please contact me, I will resend as soon as possible.

I love to collect small items like buttons, paper napkins, stickers and Ty beanie babies. By now I gave up collecting many things and just stick to postcards. Most beanie babies were sent to Romania with a help tranport. I only kept the bears. I love drinking black tea (Pg tips) , cappucino, and Scotch whisky (not too often though).

I like chocolates (no dark chocolate), I am a fan of "Cadburys Roses". I also like starburst from GB.

I don't like cinamon or vanilla.

My favorite color is red and as flowers I like roses and lilac and hydrangeas.

We love to travel although it is a problem due to my bad health. But I love Sweden and England, Scotland and Wales a lot. Never been to Ireland but I hope that some day...

Favorite Music

I love soul, blues and many "Oldies". Prefer dark women's voices.(Alyson Moyet, Kim Carnes, Anni Lennox etc)

Favorite Movies

Chocolate - The color purple - Sixth Sense

Favorite Television

  • Emercency Room
    • I loved "Roseanne"
    • Dr. House
    • Grey's anatomy
    • Tatort
    • Swedish and British criminal films

Favorite Crafts

I love working with paper, doing cards f.e., cards made of cloth, ATCs. I like: - rubber stamps - vintage ephemera, - stamps . I collect: - postcards - small angels - tiny teddies - pencils.


I like most kinds of postcards, but would like to get them naked ( not in an envelope) and written on.

Nice stamps make me very happy and let me easily give an extra heart.

I love art cards esp. of not so well-known artists, young artists etc., esp. fond of Frida Kahlo and ingapaltser cards.

Map cards are my favorites at the moment but I collect these written and stamped. I would be happy if we can do a private swap for these.

I also like cards showing

  • people (children)

  • vintage portrait of a woman, esp. women with red hair

  • traditional clothing

  • places of special interest

  • cats and dogs

  • but owls and wolves would make my day. (real or drawn)

  • American presidents( and their families) - so far I have Kennedy, Nixon and Obama

  • members of royal families (f.e. England, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain etc)

I do not like cards showing:

  • dolls

  • masks

  • Dia de los Muertos
