In november and december I love to get Christmas postcards. I include them in my Christmas decorations.
My name is Bertha. Since 2000 I am married to Barend. I was born and raised in Harlingen in the north of the Netherlands.
We moved to Germany in December 2016. My greatest hobby is singing in a choir. I sang at the womenchoir "De Boegspetters" for almost 20 years. Here I joined also a womenchoir: "Frauenchor Mühlhausen" I love singing!
You can hear me (solo) and the womenchoir on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orMWstt2iKs
What I like:
- Tourist cards, the AVERAGE SIZE (10X15CM). When they are larger they do not fit in my system. I collect those cards since I was only 14, so almost half a century.
- All animals, real or drawn.
- Trains, especially diesel- and steamlocomotives (for my husband).
But of course all kinds of other cards are welcome too. You can take a look at my favorites to get an idea what I like, I don´t have any of them yet. As you can see I like bright colours. Looking forward to all the cards from all over the world!
