Since 2020 is the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote here in the U.S., I would like to celebrate that milestone, so if you have a card about women's rights/voting (suffrage) in your country, I would LOVE to receive it!
Now then, mainly I would love to see sights from your part of the world that show why you enjoy living there. I like seeing new places and discovering somewhere I should visit on my next trip. And I would prefer a real stamp over the metered barcode type of postage if possible and convenient for you as I think you can learn a lot about a place by seeing who and what they honor with their stamps.
I enjoy seeing historic sites.
I love animals, especially rhinos and giraffes.
I am an avid reader and especially love Shakespeare and Austen and quotes from their works.
I'm a fan of folk art, especially quilts and Russian nesting dolls.
John Singer Sargent and Gustave Caillebotte are my favorite artists so cards of their works are always welcome.
I enjoy silent movies - Harold Lloyd in particular.
I like Winnie the Pooh & Peanuts - Woodstock is my favorite.
I love flowers, especially the bulb flowers - iris, tulips, daffodils.
Baseball is my favorite sport & the Los Angeles Dodgers is my favorite team.
I also like old postcards or a new postcard with an old photo/view.
Coca-Cola is also cool, particularly the vintage Coke ads.
I'm a fan of both Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.
I LOVE vintage travel posters.
I think metro/subway stations are cool.
And, if there is such a thing as a postcard of Richard Madden or Tom Burke, I would be EXTREMELY happy to see one arrive in my mailbox.
**If you're from Ukraine, I would LOVE a postcard of the Potemkin Steps.
**If you're from China, I really enjoy the Shaanxi peasant paintings.
No ad or homemade cards please!
And while I do like that some people take the time to write a letter, I do prefer postcards and would love nothing more than a view of your beautiful country instead of a sheet of paper with a note, no matter how thoughtful the intention.
These never arrived at their destination - Please let me know if you ever receive them.
