greetings from Lemgo, a small medieval town in northwestern Germany.
I am: housewife, proud mother and grandmother.
I like travelling to Denmark, reading (Diana Gabaldon, Stephen King, Jussi Adler Olsen, Marc Elsberg), movies and music (80s and David Bowie), writing and receiving postcards, collecting stamps, FDCs and coins, collecting things with skulls on (pillowcases, spoons, jewelry, clothing, coffee mugs and more), dark and weird humor, good food, spending time with friends, watching TV series and everything about history, cooking and baking, gardening on my balcony, tattoos (I have 6 and there are more to come), taking care of my orchids (I only have orchids, because i tend to kill all other indoor plants) ...
I dislike: spiders, kale, seafood and the summer heat - I prefer cool and windy weather.
UPDATE 22/10/2020: So many cards have arrived damaged and stained these days, what a pity ! So if you don´t mind - and if it doesn´t cost you extra postage - you may also send your card written in envelope.
Please check my collections on Flickr, these are cards I already have:
If you don´t know which card to choose, these topics make me extremely happy:
- Christmas cards in November/December
- David Bowie, Johnny Depp
- art cards that show people in historical fashion from 16th to 19th century,
- touristic cards (new and old ones) from places in Denmark, not necessarily sent from there, it can also be a card you bought during holidays and brought back home
- US states with the name of the state on the front side
- paintings and drawings of cats (for example blue cats by Irina Zeniuk, Irina Garmashova, Maria Pawlowa, Alexey Dolotov, Wieslawa Burnat, Alexander Maskaev) - NO photos, please !
- skulls and skeletons, vampires, dwarves, giants, zombies, unicorns, fairies, mermaids, dragons and other fantasy creatures

Or check my favourites, the cards shown there are cards I don´t have yet. I use my favourites as a kind of wish list.
If you don´t have any of these: no problem, send a card which you would like to receive or tourist card from your hometown.
P.S. no war, no religion, please
