Hi my name is Aberline (you can call me Abby). I am a biologist who works writing management plans for national parks. I'm married with a son, Toby who is 8!
Before becoming a mum I did alot of travelling including 3 years living in London and backpacking around Europe. This is why I don't like city views or other touristy cards (I prefer to go there myself! Or if I've been there I already have lots of photos).
Actually the postcards I love are:
♥ from my favourites wall
(if you do a search for cards from your country maybe you will find one that you can send me..& that I dont already have!)
♥ Christmas postcards-not folded greeting cards
♥ Lali riddle cards
♥ Charley Harper's birds & animals (US)
♥ PHQ stamp cards (GB)
♥ Wolf Erlbruch's animals
♥ Inge look's old ladies (FI)
♥ Kliban's cats
♥ cards that say "postcrossing"!
♥ illustrated alphabets
♥ children's book illustrations
♥ vintage travel poster reproductions
♥ wildlife photography
♥ maxicards (which are cards with a stamp on the picture part of the postcard and a special postmark www.postcrossing.com/blog/2012/03/19/postcard-formats-maxicards)
♥ postboxes & letterboxes
♥ vegetarian/sweet recipes (only if you can translate for me!).
I am really really happy if I receive something from my wishlist but dont fret, if you dont have these then perhaps a beautiful nature landscape? Please try to avoid cards from other countries though, thats how I get doubles :-(
Please write as much as you can on the card. I love hearing from you. I also like *mailart* on the address side!
I love choosing cards for other people that they will like. I hope you do too.
[So IF you want to know which cards I DONT like..please don't be offended..but I DONT like Ad cards, multiviews, cityscapes, buildings, churches, hand made/self printed (unless its a stamp one) or thin/old cards - please send these to someone else.]
And please *NO folded greeting cards*. To Aussies these are not postcards.
I love stamps, more than one animal or beautiful special stamp would be very appreciated (or even a minisheet if it can fit on!).
Toby would love stamps that appeal to children & I love special Christmas, UK, Europa & USA Forever stamps!
Toby and I check our letterbox so please make them suitable for him too (please no violence, war images, bull fighting, nudity, smoking, alcohol, crude pictures/messages, horror, spooky legends, animal skins, mummified bodies etc)
* How about dating your card & including the weather?
* I love it when you favourite my cards, have a look at my sent wall - but please dont ask me to swap. I don't have duplicates sorry
* This is my most favourited card
