About Raelyn...

Hello from New Zealand! I have enjoyed letter writing since I was a child and love collecting postcards and although I don't write many long letters these days this is the perfect way to continue my hobby :o). I have been married for 35 years and live in a small country town at the top of New Zealand's South Island. I love animals (have 2 cats), music, travel, genealogy, pretty stamps, to name a few. I like to watch older TV shows on occasion with my favourites being "Murder, She Wrote", "MacGyver" and "Stargate SG1". Also LOVE the current Canadian TV show "Murdoch Mysteries".

The cards I hope to receive some day are listed under "My Favourites" :o)

Please no weird or ugly cards that have neither meaning nor purpose. I prefer pretty, happy postcards with some of my favourites being:

*Pretty scenery
*Attractive city, village, town views etc.
*Vintage town/city views
*Beautiful winter "Christmas" postcards anytime
*Cats (Domestic)
*Susan Wheeler Bunnies
*Classic Hollywood Legends from the 30's 40's 50's 60's etc.
*Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver/Stargate SG1 TV series)
*Letter Boxes and Lighthouses sound fun to!
*Tausendschon cards are beautiful and very special to :o)
*Royal Family

I LOVE the following cards and should anyone have one of these cards or similar and wants to do a private swap please let me know :o)

*Animals & Birds (especially cats, dogs, reindeer, rabbits, horses, donkeys, cows, wolves, bears, moose, elk, Northern Cardinal, Red Robin)
*Cute mice
*Recipe cards
*Trains esp. famous ones such as the Rocky Mountaineer/The Orient Express/The Ghan
*Winter Wonderlands to name a few...

*Please no ad cards or free cards UNLESS they relate to my "wish" list and are pretty thanks. Also not too keen on Art cards.

Hope the above will help with your decision......thank you! These are just suggestions as I know it can be helpful to have ideas :o)
