About Me

My name is Frieda if you want to use it instead of F.B., please spell it correctly. My ID Highlander is for my car. It is getting older, I hope to keep it as long as I can. I am not Scottish or have never watched the movies.

My favorite cat is the wandering cat who keeps mice from my house. When I receive anything Cat-related, I will pass it along to those wanting them.

I always rate, usually the day I receive a swap. I hope others treat swaps received from me the same way. I mail very soon after partners are assigned, so if you haven't received the swap from me, PM me, I'll resend. In the US should be 2 weeks delivery and 3-4 weeks for international swaps.

I read the profile of who I send to and who I receive from. I found a new friend who lives near me. Her profile mentions the Denver Postcard Club. I joined and love it. We have monthly meetings with fantastic topic presenters and we can look through and purchase postcards. I participate twice a year in the children's project to fill 150 envelopes with postcards and stamps to the Ronald McDonald House and the Children's Hospital to introduce postcards and mailing them.

I have been collecting whales(mostly Humpback) for over 40 years, one day I hope to see one breach. We tried once but the rain for three days didn't allow the day trip. I have traveled to all the states except Alaska. My 2020 trip planned to Alaska was canceled. I am going to try again in 2021. Update!! Visited Alaska in May!! Wahoo! We saw Orcas, but none breaching.

Favorite Crafts

Love to sew and do machine embroidery. I have a granddaughter with very specific ideas for costumes and decorating her clothing. She gives me challenges for sewing projects. I enjoy new techniques in my sewing and love to make the Free Standing Lace Angels offering to everyone who visits. I learned to make Microwave Fabric Bowls and went nuts making over 400 sets of them so far. I use them instead of flat potholders. Joann Fabrics, Michael's, and Hobby Lobby are my kind of toy stores!

Favorite Places to visit

I absolutely love to visit Mt Rushmore. Since 1963 it is the most visited spot ever for me and I find something new each time. One time my dog went with me on my trip from Illinois to Montana. Animals are no longer allowed on the Presidential Walk or in the amphitheater. I have over 440 different postcards from that tourist place and welcome more. Mine are in two binders now instead of a photo box. I have a wooden card, very old black and white ones, and linen cards as well as the new 4x6 size. I recently found a 5x7 linen I didn't know that size existed.

I would go back to Europe in a heartbeat and revisit Castles and distant relatives in Switzerland. New England historical sites are very much a fascination to me. The Whaling Museum is also on my bucket list.

Postcards

Touristy is my Most Favorite!
I prefer 4x6 or smaller. Larger cards are difficult to store.

I have been collecting postcards for years buying those instead of other souvenirs. I collect postcards from every place I visit. I put the date and who was with me on the back. I have boxes of them filed by states, countries and other themes. They can capture pictures that my camera cannot. I like city views, landmarks, country scenes, day and night themes, maps (state or country), and most any interesting pictures. I like the colorful pictures of places, map cards and information ones of places as well. I will trade animals or flowers if that is what is required in the swap. I would prefer touristy cards from places to see over the artsy or animal pictures with the exception of Whales - my most favorite is Humpback Whales. Postcard swaps with a touristy or specific theme, but not animal or flowers. I have no filing boxes or folders for flowers or animals other than Whales. I like the places visited to inspire me to add to my bucket list.

I have Colorado cards galore, send me a different state card, please. I have cards for each State Capitol building and extras to trade if someone wants to add to their collection.

I am a dog person - Dachshunds and I collect whales (mostly humpback whales). Please send other animal cards to those displaying animal requests in their profiles.

Postcards --- City views, Historical sites or Historical people, Lantern Press, Large Letter State and City (Greetings from), Linen, Lou Paper State Series, Map or map shape cards, Maxicards, PCs with cutouts, Hold up to the light cards, Vintage touristy, Pictorial Map, State Cards, Touristy of city, state or country, Famous Places and I am also looking for postcards for Elgin, Illinois, my hometown.

I also collect Busy Tourist's Correspondence Check-Off when I can find them. Would be happy to trade for these, let me know your wishlist.

I have extras for Lantern Press and State Capitols if interested we could do a private swap.

Likes/dislikes/confused

Likes --
Civil War/Revolutionary War, Dachshunds, Embroidery, Ladybugs, Mount Rushmore, Patriotic themes, Pine cones, Scooby Doo, Sewing notions, Snowmen, Statue of Liberty, US Presidents and Whales,

Dislikes or not into-- Those cheap sepia 32-pcs Vintage Travel Sights Landscape Retro Postcards from AliExpress (smaller cards without description on the back. The back is a sepia tone with just boxes on the top left.) If you want some of those, message me and I will send you an envelope filled with those.

Please sent any cat items to someone else!

Sad to say dislikes or disappointments are the flakers and non-raters. I am getting my share. I will no longer seek out a rating. If you do not receive the swap, let me know and I can resend.

Thank you so much for the great variety of oversized postcards for the RAKs only RAK #2! My favorite is the Australia card, but I love them all! I also appreciate the vintage postage stamps you used on the envelope - it's always exciting to add more stamps to my collection :) Thanks again!
