I'm Andrea. I live on the Isle of Man and have recently re-activated my Postcrossing account after a long absence. I'm excited to send and receive cards again.
I enjoy walking, photography, animals, reading and writing and learning languages. A greeting in your language will be appreciated.
I believe postcrossing should be fun - educational too- but mostly fun so don't stress about the kind of card to send. I like most cards, but if you have one of the below I'm more than happy to receive them, but don't go out of your way to find them if you don't have them. I like nearly all cards
Views from your town or city
dolls, teddy bears and other toys.
fashion related cards
Hotel and motel cards, interior and exterior.
Abandoned and spooky looking places or places which have changed their name.
Fairgrounds and Ferris wheels.
Snow scenes, autumnal scenes, coastal scenes
Swimming pools, lidos , lighthouses, beach huts and bandstands
Recipes and food and drink
art deco, art nouveau and mid century modern,
Interiors and furniture
Water of any kind
Castles, palaces and stately homes
Nuclear power stations
Greetings from/large letter cards
Postcrossing meet up cards.
I'm happy with pretty much anything. Art cards are good too, as are old cards , retro cards and black and white. My favourite colours are purple and dark green. Handmade cards are also fine, but please don't put feathers on them as I'm allergic.
The only cards I really dislike are animals in costumes or other anthropomorphic cards. Animals in their natural habitat are fine, as long as the animals are alive, no dead animals, taxidermy or hunting scenes please. No erotica/nudes either though I don't mind risqué humour cards. No owls either, I consider them unlucky.
I'm happy with written and stamped cards or with those in an envelope.
I don't mind what you write but, if you're not sure what to write, tell me about your day, where you live, your favourite season or recommend a podcast.
My favourites are mixture of ones I have received and those I've seen, but I don't mind if you duplicate . It's still a unique card as it's from a diffrent person.
I regret at present that I cannot make private swaps.
