My favourite decades are the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's. To me, this is the Golden Age. I love watching Old Hollywood movies and listening to music from this era.
I love to visit museums and historic buildings and admire the beauty in everything that is old, broken and imperfect. I love history and I am particularly interested in Scottish, English, French, Welsh, Australian and Native American history.
I am passionate about collecting vintage and antique treasures such as photographs, postcards, cabinet cards, calling cards, love letters, British royal memorabilia and WWI and WWII items. I especially love photos of handsome soldiers (particularly American soldiers from the 1940's), love letters and postcards from the war.
In my spare time, I enjoy writing to my penpals. I love the beauty and romance of the written word, and wildflowers pressed between the pages of a hand written letter makes my heart sing.
I am particularly fond of the following cards:
1920’s to 1940’s – actors, actresses, singers, movies and images of daily life
Black and white photos and sepia photos
Genuine antique and vintage cards
Historic homes and buildings
Famous people and events in history (pre-1950’s)

When writing to me, please do tell me a little bit about yourself. If you could travel back in time to any place and time period, where would it be and why? If you could have dinner with 5 people from the past, who would you choose? Or perhaps you could share with me a verse from your favourite poem, or recommend a great book that I should read (historical fiction).
With best wishes from Australia. xxx
