Lobelia(or Titia) is a member in Netherlands . She has been a member for over 5 years (2,050 days).
Pleased to meet you! My name is Titia, I am a writer, married and a mother of three (17, 13 and 10 y.o.). Someone who inspires me is the German poet Jochen Klepper. My website about him: http://jochenklepper.nl/wp/.
I love nature, reading, studying for fun and I'm a bit of a hermit - that is when I find the time to be one.
I like most cards (as long as they're family proof). I give you some suggestions, but if you want, go ahead and surprise me!
ღ Maximum cards ♥
ღ Fauna of Belarus
ღ Beautiful cemeteries
ღ Old trading centers / routes
ღ Calligraphy, old handwritings
ღ Hanse cities and kogge ships
ღ Flora and fauna of your country
ღ (Old) ships from your country, harbours
ღ (Vintage) postcards about communism
ღ Saints or deities that are important to your area
ღ Art from your country, traditional or contemporary
ღ nature's wonders, cosmos, aurora borealis & australis
ღ your culture (festivities, national costume, music, legends, poetry...)
I don't like:
☂ (modern) buildings
☂ cats, dogs, other pets (on cards)
☂ cards from calenders or postcardbooks
☂ cards representing another country than your own
♫ I appreciate a nice stamp!
♫ There are certain stamps I'd love to receive - but don't worry if you don't have them:
♪ Insects and spiders ♥
♪ Scented stamps ♥
♪ Commemorative stamps
♪ 'Europa' stamps
♪ Nature themes
♪ Art themes

♪ US, BY, DE, RU: other than standard international stamp
♫ Don't forget to tell me something about YOU on the postcard.

♫ Bitte schreib mir auf Deutsch!
♫ Merci de m'écrire en français!
Let's exchange some beautiful cards!
One more thing: My last name is Lindeboom. It's the name of a tree with heartshaped leaves - Tilia in Latin. Could you tell me the name of this tree in your language, with the right characters? That would be wonderful!
So far I have, thanks to several postcrossers (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
