I live in a village with my husband and our dogs Ruby and Pippa. My hobbies are gardening, baking and cooking, reading, sewing, all things crafty and spending time in nature. I love bargain hunting at thrift shops and filling our home with second hand finds. I collect Persephone Books, vintage glass bottles, shells and broken pottery and like to display my 'treasures' on old wooden shelves and printer's trays. I also enjoy going to the theatre, cinema and live music concerts; Stereophonics are my favourite band of all time. My favourite colour is purple!
If you need some ideas for what to send me, I'd love to receive postcards of...
- AGA cookers
- Barack Obama
- Galo de Barcelos
- Harry Potter
- Jack Russell Terriers
- Justin Trudeau
- Lalli riddles
- Les Nouvelles Images
- Miniature things
- Rachel Ignotofsky illustrations (I have Alice Bell & Mary Agnes Chase!)
- Space (space travel, astronauts, the International Space Station)
I don't have any of the postcards on my favourites wall so would LOVE to receive one of these! I don't really like typical tourist postcards.
I like to read nice long messages; why not tell me what you did at the weekend, or what you have planned for next weekend? It's interesting to get a 'snapshot' of other people's lives!
In September 2015, I was lucky enough to host the Little Mail Carriers. You can read all about their adventures here - https://www.postcrossing.com/blog
Thanks and Happy Postcrossing! 💜
PS - please don't send cards showing pregnant women or babies.
