PLEASE READ FIRST:
The Coronavirus/ Covid19 have had a negative impact on my life. Please avoid writing me about this topic. It only brings me pain. Thank you for your understanding.
EVERY postcard is a little treasure and I am happy for EACH ONE that arrives. I like ALL postcards but I am especially delighted to find these topics in my mailbox:
Sloths * Hedgehogs * Armadillos * Platypus * And all other strange and wonderful animals I have never heard of * These specific breeds: Brabant/Ardenner, Percheron (yes, I have one!), Norwegian Fjord or Scottish Fold. * Bears (Black, Brown, Panda, Koala) * Frogs * Wild baby animals * Wild baby animals with their mothers. * Swans * Owls * Chickadees * Penguins * Brightly colored birds * Snails * Jellyfish * Flowers ( especially Lily-of-the-Valley, Dahlia, Edelweiss, Columbine, Forget-Me-Not, Pansies) * Gingko * Multiples (Nouvelles Images and others) * NASA * NASCAR * Cotswolds * Miffy * Lali Riddle * Rilakkuma * Cultural festival, costume or artifact of your country * Maiko * Origami * Sushi * Maneki Neko * Chinese New Year * Kennedy * Marilyn * Grace Kelly * Audrey Hepburn * Royal ladies Kate, Diana or Elisabeth of Austria * Romy Schneider * Slash (of GNR fame) * Uilleann Pipes or Hurdy Gurdy * Classical Ballet * Skating * Curling * Hockey * German Expressionism * Watercolor Paintings * Star Trek * Le Femme Nikita * 007 * Berlin Wall * Square cards * Lantern Press (originals) * and my favorite color is blue.
My ANTI Wishlist:
Male nudity * Circus Animals * Bullfighting * Taxidermy * Photos of any animal taken through a cage or suffering from sickness or starvation. Yes, I have been sent these cards and found them offensive. I have also been disappointed by Ad cards.

What you write on the card is important too. I know English is not an easy language for non-native speakers. Please don't apologize for your English! I think you are brave for writing in a foreign language. You can always draw me a picture or decorate with stickers. I'd also like to know:
- about your pets or your observations about animals
- a fun or interesting fact about your town/State/area
- tell about 3 things you love
- a quote or saying you find meaningful
I also appreciate beautiful stamps. They are tiny works of art.
Also, cards which I have marked as "Favorite" are used as a wish list. These are cards I do not have but would love to add to my collection.
