About Martina...

Dear Postcrossers,
I'm living in a small village nearby Hannover in Germany.
Now, I am retired
:-) and :-(
I loved my job so much: I was the only one office employee at an old farm, a manor (= "Rittergut"; difficult to translate). Old lances, swords, knight's armours and stern resp. strictly portraits were watching about me. Outside (im Calenberger Land) we manage modern arable farming. I was the accountant and The Do-All for anyone. My successor is really good, but she has problems with the bookkeeping: debits and credits are an unsolvable puzzle for her.
This is my chance! I still go regularly to my "old" office and do the bookkeeping! AccountingI love it.

Farming and food production are central to my life and that of my husband. Healthy food and simple life, fire wood.

Das Wichtigste in meinem Leben: Gastfreundschaft.
The most important thing in my life: hospitality.

So I love photos of tables, cooking pots, kitchen, food, recipes, herbs, spices and so on.
I love the simple daily life: a roof over our heads, a table and some chairs, a bed, a stove, a cellar or a fridge with something to eat and do drink in them, friendly neighbours, happy children, hospitality, helpfulness, guests and good discussions - and a warm light in the window. If you see a soft muffled yellow lamp in our window: we are at home, come in.
So, send something what you yourself enjoy receiving. Maybe, you tell something about you. I'll be happy about your postcard and your informations! If you have no idea: Send me a photo-card of cemeteries or burial culture, paintings of ancient art, sculptures of modern art, libraries, music instruments, close-up pictures, postallove/greetings from, peas, wood, kitchen equipment or interior, restrooms, Bauhaus, Chronikkarten, botanical drawings, Ole West, roofs, black and white, anything about bees and spiders, historical film or advertising posters, nasty cartoons, unusual, bad, politically incorrect (but not extreme; I am settled liberally).

Many greetings!

And if you no longer enjoy postcrossing: Please stand by it and delete your account.
I have so many lost postcards that I can't blame the post office and it has nothing to do with covid.
So many wasted postcards: Chosen with love and - thrown away.
(Plus, cards and postage aren't cheap...)
