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. Recently, my husband and I have become opera buffs.
If you are not sure what postcard to send, here are some ideas:
-cards that portray something unique about your country, region, or city
-natural features (landscape), famous buildings, people dressed in native costume, holidays and festivals.
-atelier nouvelles images
-France, especially Paris
-anything Irish (according to a DNA test, I'm 89% Irish)
-Portuguese tiles and colorful tableware
-Pysanka (decorated Easter eggs
-Matryoshka (Russian nesting dolls)
-Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists (especially Van Gogh)
-cathedrals, churches, shrines, other places of worship
-books, libraries, people reading
-the sea and beaches
-irises (my favorite flower)
-colors of the rainbow
-"Greetings from . . ." series (from postallove.com) So far, I have: Austria, Brazil, Cyprus, France, Germany, Japan, Lithuania, Poland, and Taiwan.
-fire trucks, race cars, super heroes like Spiderman (for my grandsons).
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!
