My name is Nelsa and I have lived in Amsterdam for nearly 35 years. I was born in Portugal and I was three years old when my parents decided to immigrate for a better future.
I'm a teacher and teach at a secondary school (mostly teenagers, age 14 to 18). In my spare time, I very much love dancing and reading. At times, I can be quite nostalgic and I'm a collector. To me, going through my (card) collections has always been a pleasant 'escape' from reality.
Any postcard is welcome but you might have one of my favourites which will make me VERY happy! This way, I can put them into my specific collections to go through on a rainy day;)
- on education (e.g. classroom, alphabet, nursery rhymes, children's books, literature)
- Alice in Wonderland
- Little Red Riding Hood
- Totoro/ Studio Ghibli / Hayao Miyazaki
- (Sendung mit) der Maus
- cats (especially illustrated/ paintings or funny..;)
- Marilyn Monroe/ Clark Gable
- Nouvelles Images (the multiples)
- Cupid/ Amor
- dance/ people dancing (no ballet)
- huskies/ dalmations/St.Bernards
- women gymnastics
- old-fashioned seasonal cards (Easter, Christmas, Halloween etc)
Cards that I really don't like are monarchy, royal cards and cards picturing bullfights and the pope.
If you're lost for words, you can always let me know what/who inspires you! A huge inspiration in my life has been the singer Stevie Nicks.
Thank you very much for writing!
