About Alison...

I live in the most beautiful city in the world: Cape Town, South Africa. My main interests are reading, writing fiction & my blog, cats, cooking, current events,playing Mah Jong, travel,just about anything you care to mention! I enjoy songs by Eartha Kitt, Paul Simon, k.d.lang,
I'm a big fan of the Addams Family, and the Big Bang Theory.

In fact I love books and reading so much that I have a second blog devoted to these topics. Please visit at: .
I was born in Africa, & lived in Africa all my life. I enjoy travel, travel books, and Travel Channel on TV.

If you live in Europe I'd prefer not to receive postcards of historic buildings - anything else would be fine; but over to you! I'd love anything to do with Cats,Asian Art,the Slavic Art of Viktor Korolkov, modern Art, or Books.

I'm happy to receive home-made cards. I enjoy making paper collage, and sometimes make my own cards, or up-cycle existing cards.
My suggestions for cards are only suggestions - maybe you're going to surprise me ?
Please put the date on your postcard - thanks!

I try to write something meaningful on each card I send - some comment on the person's profile or interests. I'd also like to know where and how you store your cards, especially if you have received over 1 000. Are they on display? or stored in boxes? Or ...? ?

I register cards as soon as I receive them. If you've sent me a card & received no response, please send me a message? I regret to say our Postal Service is very slow and inefficient.

Lastly: I don't own a scanner so regret I am unable to upload images of your cards, which is a pity, because I have received wonderful cards over the years.
