Hello, I am Baby Spruce, a Dwarf Alberta Spruce evergreen tree. I live in a planter in a suburb of Chicago with my hippie parents who take care of me. They adopted me from a home and garden store on September 29, 2013. Yes, we register cards promptly (as soon as they are received) and try to pick nice ones for other users (doing the best to match their preferences).
Why would a tree send and receive postcards? Why not? The Little Mail Carriers get to see the world by traveling. Since I am rooted here, I have to experience the world by sending and receiving postcards. Of course I have help doing this, just like the Little Mail Carriers have. Plus, I know there are several cats on this site sending out postcards and I’ve even seen a Postcrossing goat.
I would especially love to receive postcards of my favorite themes:
- snowdrops (the flowers), known as Schneeglöckchen / podsnezhniki / lumikelloja
- garden gnomes
- Inge Look gnome cards
- pink flamingos (the garden ornament or the bird)
- Inge Look garden cards
- Inge Look cat cards
- celestial themes (sun/moon/stars)
- For U.S. users: state flowers, state parks, national parks (all from the location where you live please)
- My parents would enjoy Volkswagen or hippie-type postcards.
- Tourist cards (view cards), especially with landscapes/nature/flowers are nice too.
However, send what you have. Any postcard you choose and send with a positive mindset will be appreciated!
Odd-shaped and over-sized postcards are welcome. Don't be afraid to be creative! Stickers, washi tape, drawings etc - it's all good.
* Please write something about yourself or your town/country on the card.
* If you need ideas, you can tell me about your favorite flowers or plants. You could tell me about botanical gardens in your area or what kind of things grow in your region.
About me: I’m not just any tree. For years, I have had a following on the Internet. I even have my own Twitter account. https://twitter.com/babyspruce1
I have also had an appearance on a NASCAR champion’s website. http://sportsmanagement.pairserver.com/races/daytona-500/baby-spruce-loves-deuce

*The favorites on the wall are cards which were received.
*The avatar picture is old. I am a bit bigger now.
(The return address on outgoing postcards is not a solicitation for cards. It's there for postal purposes in case a card needs returned).
