Hello! My name is Patricia. I am married and have three adult sons and two grandsons. I enjoy reading, solving crossword puzzles, playing Mah Jongg, travel, volunteer work, simple sewing and embroidery projects, and I dabble in genealogy. For exercise, I like to walk, bicycle, or swim. My favorite color is purple.
I would love to receive:
-cards that portray something unique about your country, region, or city - natural features (landscape), famous buildings, or people dressed in native costume.
-cards with art from your country (paintings, sculpture, fabric art, etc.)
-atelier nouvelles images
-Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters (especially Van Gogh)
-cathedrals, churches, shrines, other places of worship
-the sea and beaches
-irises (my favorite flower)
-colors of the rainbow
-"Greetings from . . ." series (from postallove.com) So far, I only have three: Brazil, Germany, and Poland.
-fire trucks or race cars (for my grandson)
USA Postcrossers - I would like to collect postcards from locations in the National Park System. Thank you!
See my favorites for examples. That said, I'll be happy to receive whatever card you'd like to send! If you don't know what to write, tell me why I should visit your town, region or country. I'm always looking for travel ideas. Please do not write the ID number at the bottom of the postcard or near the stamps. The postal markings make it hard to read the number!
Although I prefer actual postcards, sent without an envelope, I realize that sometimes it is necessary to use an envelope or send a folded card instead of a postcard. That won't bother me. The message you write is more important to me!
