About Sophie...

I live in a village with my husband and our Jack Russell Terriers Ruby and Pippa! My hobbies are baking, gardening, reading, cross stitch and shopping at thrift shops. I collect vintage glass bottles, shells and broken pottery and like to display my 'treasures' in old wooden printer's trays. My favourite colour is purple and my favourite time of year is Autumn; one of the best things about living in the UK is our wonderful changing seasons!

If you need some inspiration for what kind of postcard to send me, these are some things I love...

- African culture
- AGA cookers
- Books
- Buttons
- Daffodils,
- Feminism
- Harry Potter
- Hearts
- Lalli riddles
- Les Nouvelles Images
- Miniature things
- Shakespeare
- Space, space travel and the International Space Station
- Tea
- Wassily Kandinsky

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 -

Thanks and Happy Postcrossing! 💜

PS - please don't send cards showing pregnant women or babies.
