About Cátia ...
Hello, i am a portuguese woman and i collect many things: bookmarks (my passion), postcards and stamps.
If you can, send the postcards in an envelope, and, if possible, unwritten, but please write a note on paper! I'd love to hear about you or whatever you want to tell. Any size is good, but in good state.I ask the envelope because the cards usually reach me damaged in several ways, and this way they are protected. As i collect stamps, i can take them from the envelope.But of course you can send without an envelope and i also know that in some countries you pay more for it.
My favourite themes are all connected to BOOKS like libraries, bookshops, writers' photos or houses, etc.
-old monasteries, churches,ancient buildings...
-connected to mail boxes,postmen,mail delivery past or present
-cards full of many small things, multiples (Nouvelles Images, Lali, Where's Waldo? and others)
-gardens, mazes, gazebos and hothouses
-rural paths/ fields in the countryside (agriculture,landscapes...)
-children's books illustrations
-water related: sea, lakes, rivers.
-routes to Santiago of Compostela
You can see some of the cards i WANT to have, i don't have them yet,in my FAVOURITES list.
My favourite special theme for Spring 2013 is TREES.
The themes I DON'T LIKE so much are sunsets, nightviews, beaches, tropical landscapes, children, glittery, Las Vegas, DOUBLE CARDS...Please, try NOT TO SEND ME THESE THEMES, unlesss you don't have other postcards.
If you are sending from one of the following places, i am looking for:
.Inge Löök-old joyful ladies-(the ones i don't have yet are in my favourites list,i have all the others)
-LJV- Leendert Jan Vis (illustrator)
