Hello! I'm a collector of all sorts of things, which is one reason I've joined Postcrossing. I have a collection of US postage stamps, first day covers, U.S. coins, and postcards. I look forward to adding to my postcard collection. While I enjoy postcards sent in envelopes, these are a bit more difficult to store - so if it's all the same to you, just a stamped postcard will be most appreciated.
I am looking forward to sharing these with my 7 young grandchildren - Keller, Callyn, Lucy, Wesley, Etta, Fox, and Piper. No nudity or messages inappropriate for children, please.
Some ideas for you to consider::
-Map postcards, iconic buildings, or city views.
-I love Fotofolio postcards.
-Puppies, or Dogs, or Cats. That's Maggie, our little puppy, born 9/8/2018, as my Avatar.
-Cathedrals, Churches, Saints, the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Pope Francis and other religious-themed cards would be greatly appreciated.
-Amateur Radio, Telegraphy, Morse Code, Ham Radio QSL cards. Electronics, vintage radios, communications equipment. I'm an amateur radio operator, call sign N4EWF.
-Magic - especially Houdini, Slydini, Thurston, classic magic posters and photos.
-Music - Grateful Dead, any 60's or 70's rock, Jazz, Bluegrass, Blues, etc.
-PANTONE postcards, any color.
-Wildlife, birds, all kinds of animals.
-Art and Artists
Please don't stress over which card to send. Any card in my mailbox will be received with a smile :-)
