About Michelle...

NOTE: If you wish to join one of my round robins, please go the the Postcrossing Forum and send a U2U message. No clown cards of any type - I truly am coulrophobic. Thank you!!

Short profile: Cards on my "Favorites" wall are cards I have seen and loved, so it is the best guide to sending a card I like. There are no cards in my favorites that I have already received. BUT! I'm always to receive new and intriguing subjects!

I do NOT expect anyone to look through the entire personal collection to see if I already have a card. Just use my favorites wall as a guideline. Use the others if you want to see some great cards I've received from various sources over the years. Super cure for insomnia!

No need to put in envelope - written & stamped is fine unless it might embarrass my easily-embarrassed postman. Thanks!
Long version!
I live in Dallas, Texas - a big city in a big state! I am single and am the proverbial "cat lady" of my neighborhood, but right now only one cat owns me, Sassy (who lives up to her name).

I am a cancer survivor. Not a heroic thing, but if you are facing the monster, I want you to know there is a place waiting for you in our survivor's club.

Please do not ask me to register a card you think is lost. I don't do that.

I love reading, movies, "bad boy" actors. I like cards that depict interesting architecture where you live, black & white cards, animals, mountains, art, music (from Mozart to Eminem but I am an original "Beatlemaniac"), fantasy. If you have vintage or funny ad cards, I like those! I am fond of Cavallini, Jetoy, Belle & Boo, but also love Gorey, Addams, Choe and Jean! I also just "discovered" wagon wheels and welcome more cards showing them.

I only draw the line at "risque" or nudity. Retro pin-up cards are welcome.

I have just discovered cards by Osamu Komatsu and would love more..and more...

All you wonderful Aussies - love the scenery and would also love to get those cards you probably think are boring - koalas, kangaroos, wombats - any native wildlife! If you happen to have an interior photo of the Sydney Opera House, I'd love to have it!

Finland friends - I love to get Kaj Stenvall, Moomin, Inge Löök, and Martta Wenderlin!

Russian friends - Am fascinated with the Romanovs & other tsars, Siberia, Faberge, matryoska dolls. I would also love any Olympics-related cards. :)

Italian friends - Roma! Venice carnival! Florence, Historic art (including sculptures)in cities!

I appreciate each card that lands in my mailbox!

Postcards in my box = smiles on my face!
