Receive postcards

About Penelope...

Firstly, thank you in advance for choosing a card for me.
Since I’ve been inactive for a few years, none of my albums are up to date but don’t worry, I’m happy about any card even if it ends up being a double. It’s the text that matters and the smile it brings to my face when I open my mail box !

Although British I have lived in Germany for very many years. I live not too far from Frankfurt but I love to explore the rest of the country, so no idea where you might get a card from.

In the past I have mainly only wanted to receive tourist type cards (to get the feeling that I'm visiting all these exotic places) but over the years my collections have become more widespread and now I have various themes which I collect but also a whole bunch of others that I like too.

As touristic cards I prefer either illuminated night scenes or old black and white cards showing a town as it was many years ago. If you have old cards and then new cards of the same place I would be interested in getting both from you and would more than gladly send you a card in return.

If you are from Africa or India then please note that I LOVE elephants. Although so massive these animals show a vast range of feelings and I find them fascinating.

I have no objections to Ad-cards if they fit into my collections.

Sometimes I get cards that absolutely don't fit into my collections but are so great that they make a start to a new collection. Examples are:

- TV shows (Dr Who/Torchwood, Friends, Fringe and Gilmore Girls)
- oldtimers/hotrods/Trabbis/TukTuks
- PHQ cards from UK
- Flags (Country flags, US state flags, German state flags, Canadian province flags)
- rubber ducks
- How to be British
- b/w photography
- Thunderbirds (my postcrossing name comes from Lady Penelope from the Thunderbirds)

*** My newest theme: "Ladders"....... Funny idea you might think. Well, since the beginning of 2017 I have been working for a company which makes industrial purpose ladders, steps and platforms and exports them worldwide. It is a very traditional company, family-owned and a bit old fashioned. I would like to pep up my office a bit but at the same time sticking to the company topic. I wonder what you might find for me.

The cards in my favourites are cards that I don't have but would very much like to receive one day.

If you do send a card from my favourites, please mention it so that I remember to delete it 🙈 Getting forgetful in my old age 😂

If you've come to my profile from the forums because we're in a Round Robin together: Please ignore all of the above. Please just send me something that makes me smile because it's cute, witty or just plain different.

One last thing: Meeting cards! I love to get cards from meetings but PLEASE save so-called meeting cards for people who enjoy them. I have never seen the point of sending 50 identical cards out to people.
