About Me

PLEASE contact me before leaving a bad rating. I have received two bad ratings, but I never received a pm beforehand. Items can go lost in the post. I am always sending my swaps!! thanks

I am originally from Germany, but I live here in Ireland for more than 19 years. Moved here because of a job that I could not find in Germany. I knew Ireland only from vacations, but of course living here is somewhat different. But I am still here so I must like it.

I got married to my long term partner Rainer on the 18.10.13 in Germany. We are together for 14 years now.

My interests are penpalling, postcrossing, travelling, reading, listening to music ...

I used to collect perfume miniatures but stopped due lack of space. I like nice writing paper and stickers too.

Favorite Music

My favourite artist is Irish singer Chris de Burgh. I am a fan since 1983. But I listen also to other music mainly 80s and Irish/Scottish music.

Postcards

I always loved to receive nice postcards from all over the world. I kept the cards I had received, but not really collected them. Then a penfriend of mine mentioned Postcrossing to me. And I joined there and got hooked. I am also very active in the Forum there and hosting my own RoundRobin. I like most postcards, but please send me no ad/free cards and self printed photos as postcards. I am also not into dog or cat cards (even I like these animals) Here are my favourite themes I am collecting:

  • lighthouses and sea cards

  • map cards

  • angels and fairies (please no more Cicely Mary Barker flower fairies - I have the whole set)

  • cows

  • Nouvelles Images

  • Wine

  • book related cards (please no more book covers)

  • shaped and cut out postcards

  • square postcards

  • Coffee, food & drinks related cards

  • Correspondances, Aquarupella

  • Postal related & writing

  • black & white with coloured accent

  • seashells and stones

If possible have a look into my Flickr page when sending these. I have received quite a lot duplicates. Thanks :) If you are going to send me a tourist card please send me singleview card (with one picture). I do not like multiviews with many pictures.

I do not really like Zazzle cards (not postcard format, often low quality) and Cafepress (thin paper). Please avoid these if you can. But I like cards from Red Bubble. I have ordered from them a couple of times and quality is great.

NOTE: From 13th April our stamp prices will rise nearly 25 %. Will take part mainly in blank card swaps from this time.

If I am in a naked (written & stamped) swap I would ask you to check my collections in Flickr (link above). My maps, lighthouses & viewcards are sorted by country (and for the US by States). I have received too many duplicates the last months and I really cannot afford this anymore.

Other Likes

I love to drink tea and coffee and cannot be without these. In regards of tea I love fruity flavours and also herbal teas. If you are going to send me tea I do not like the simple black tea or breakfast teas. I can get these here very easily and are sold most of the time. I often bring teas from Germany or my my mother sends me some to try out any new interesting flavours.

Ratings etc.

I am always sending out my swaps on time. Please contact me if you do not receive anything and I will be happy to re-send (once).

PLEASE write the swap name on the cards you are sending. I am in a lot of swaps and not only swapbot. I cannot rate you otherwise. Thank you :)

Please note: If I send a swap on a Friday in the evening it may be only postmarked on Monday. We have no collection of mail on the weekends (and no deliveries either).

Lighthouses

Love Lighthouses? I am hosting a Group called Lighthouses around the World here in swapbot. If you are interested, please send me a request to join. I am reviving this Group now (June 2015) and need more members to join.
