About Iris...

Hello Everybody!

I love, love, love postcards, letters and nice little notes. I also admire a nice handwriting (which I have never had) and the art of calligraphy.
I have an Art Gallery with 2 partners and really love my job and the versatility of it.
I studied Literature, History and Art and these are also very big fields of interest for me.
A while ago, I fulfilled my dream and built myself a home library and it is now my happy place, where I also do my letter writing, scrapbooking, embroidery, stamp-carving and whatever comes into my mind (it is a very chaotic happy place :-) ).

I love music, craftbeer, picnics in parks, poetry, irony, working around in my garden, dancing, traveling and all things of good taste.
As you can see, there is not much to do wrong here. I enjoy funny postcards too, - they crack me up. My sense of humor isn´t exactly age-appropriate and I love stupid puns.
I am really interested in hearing something about you: what you love to eat and drink, where to go in your city, funny translations, a stupid joke - but also, what your dreams are and which questions you have to yourself and the world.

Thank you a lot for your attention!

This is so exciting!

Greetings and a have a lovely day!

I also have a very special request and I want use the swarm-intelligence of my fellow postcrossers: For years now, I am collecting images of the Tower of Babel. If you have any image/persiflage/recitation of it, I would be happy to receive it.

Update: I got some postcards with unusual food specialties lately and I have to say, I enjoy those very much. So if you have any specialties or recipe cards, I would like to get it. But, if it is super uncommon: please explain a little bit of what it is and what it tastes like.
Thank you so much!
