About Me

I grew up in Virginia. I lived many years in the Chicago area. I formerly worked as a psychiatric nurse. I have two daughters. One is a professor of dramatic arts at a university in England. Her sister has a master's in social work. I am a collector of post cards and stamps. I especially like foreign cards and stamps from Germany, Russia, and England. I belong to a stamp club but do not have the knowledge regarding the stamps that many of the men in the club have. I attend in part to learn more. I also have many US cards and stamps. I like vintage cards and stamps. I have some collectibles from the Chicago Century of Progress World's Fair. I enjoy reading biographies and mysteries, novels as well. I have many books, too many. I recently read "A Life in Secrets-Vera Atkins and the Missing Agents of WW11".I like British mysteries, Agatha Christie, etc.I think it is time to read "1984' again. I like music of many types. I like opera, Broadway tunes, jazz, classical--whatever appeals to my ear. I am a regular viewer of Netflix and go out to the movies when a good flick is showing. I check out PBS online to catch TV I might have missed on Masterpiece Theater programs. I love them. I used to watch "Mystery" but it's off now. I have moved from NH to VT. I am a passionate traveler and recently had a trip to England and Germany.

About Me

About Me

My post card preferences: As mentioned, I love real vintage cards, the older the better. I have a fine collection of early 1900s cards. I like black and white real photograph cards. I like cards from the 20s and 30s. I like cards with paintings, cards with cats and dogs, foreign cards, oddity cards, castles, not so much into churches or town halls. I like cards of hospitals. I like cards depicting southern scenes. I am a real eclectic. I like all cards associated with England and love cards that have been sent through the mail. Stamps: I like foreign more than US. I have many from around the world. Eastern Europe, I really like. And, unusual stamps.WW2 stamps are a preference of mine. And, all stamps remotely associated with England and the Queen.

About Me

More Special Likes: Real vintage anything prior to 1960 the older the better stationery black tea loose or bags greeting cards Christmas cards candles jewelry, earrings for pierced ears pins with letter M teabag dish anything Christmas theme items of WW2 vintage foreign coins Christmas stamps from foreign countries Love things British! keys, old ones mirrors dresser set items foreign magnets for refrig. old lace Oxfam or similar store items foreign calendars sm. cookbooks from English speaking countries Love Russian items from USSR times

About Me

Dislikes: cutesy items crafty things sewing items green and white teas obviously worn out things or soiled things anything preferred by a 15 year old

About Me

I only like black tea, no flavored tea. I like English Breakfast tea, Irish Breakfast tea, Darjeeling tea, Earl Grey. I drink it strong with milk and no sugar. I am an English purist concerning tea.

About Me

I have expressed my likes regarding post cards. I am a serious collector, but want everyone to know creases, holes in pcs as from thumb tacks, tanning of cards, tears, poor condition pcs are totally worthless, and I don't want them! Cards can be from 1907 and still be in great shape. I would think you out there who choose to send cards would know not to send poor condition cards. They go in the garbage.

About Me

I have failed to add my interest in writing. I have taken many writing courses over the years and am in one now, which is mainly stressing poetry, but we do prose writing as well. I have been active in Brattleboro, VT Write Action which you can find on facebook. I have writings in a few anthologies, but nothing published to sell for personal gain. I have kept journals from time to time and have been in a journal writing class. I still enjoy snail mail letter writing, but few share my enthusiasm.

About Me

Added point: I am petite , short and small boned. Keep this in mind when sending jewelry and personal wearing items. My wrist is small, Most bangles are way too large.

About Me

Please do not send me cancelled stamps. I am a collector of older unused stamps and currently have too many cancelled stamps.

Comment: You are a more prolific reader than I am these days. I’m having a tough time sticking with books I start. But I did read (and finish!) 3 books in July. Thank you for the information on “Before We Were Yours”. I’ve seen that one advertised. And I really liked the Sylvia Plath quote, too. ☀️ 🌧 🍂 Thank you!
Response: Thank you.

Comment: Hi Jean! Thanks for the Bath postcard! I love it. I've been there once so the postcard brought back good memories. I'd love to visit the US someday soon. The virus outbreak isn't bad here. Very few cases recently. Take care!
Response: I have been to Bath also. Do come to US when it is safe again. Thanks for the heart.

Comment: Hi Jean! I absolutely LOVE these weird cards. The Scope one made me laugh. I especially adore the vintage squid from the zoology museum. That's a treasure. I love living in Georgia, though it took some getting used to. When people were nice to me when I first got here, I thought they were joking. But now I'm used to everyone being nice and being nice back. It's always sunny and green here except for short times during hurricane season. I love Chicago, too. That's one of my fav places to visit. Thanks for a great swap! :):):)
Response: I am glad you like the cards. Thanks for the heart.

Comment: Yes, we were wanting to get away, but a lot of our choices are hot spots. Is it possible to be a tourist right now? Not very smart, I suppose. Take care!
Response: Thank you for the heart! Stay home and swap, I guess.

Comment: The zoo is open right now, but none of the inside exhibits are, only the outdoor ones. No buses or trams either. And of course masks and temperature are required. Even though it's open, we haven't gone. Our zoo has kept us busy; it can be costly when new equipment needs to be purchased or someone has to go to the vet but most food is bought in bulk which keeps prices down! We made the promise going into this that we would never have more than we're capable of caring for. So far we're living up to that!
Response: You are a good person. Thank you for the heart.

Comment: Everything is closed down again, and school will be starting online. We know two people who have tested positive, they are at home and, while they don't feel "fine," they will be. They both agreed (different households) that the "head cold" feeling is the worst part. I hate feeling like I'm in a can and stuffy and things kind of echo, so I understand what they mean. It's kind of nice knowing someone who has it, it's really not as scary as everything makes it sound. I hope you are safe and happy and I really can't wait to travel around again, NYC is on my list too!
Response: Thank you for the heart. Schools here are going to open in the classroom, I believe. We have so far had low numbers of virus cases. I know noone with it.

Hi, Thank you very much for the lovely card. =) I have a few original black and white photo postcards from my village in perfect shape from 1960...(I think they are older) I love to send you 1 of those if you like. =)

Greetings and sunshine Simone
