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 great.
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, landscapes.
-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.
-Planets, stars, the sun, the moon, space exploration.
-Magic - Houdini, Slydini, Thurston, Ricky Jay, classic magic posters, Penn & Teller, and photos.
-Music - Grateful Dead, any 60's or 70's rock, Jazz, Bluegrass, Blues, etc. Love Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk, Lionel Hampton. You can send a postcard of your favorite musical genre or group.
-I love Fotofolio postcards. Pantone postcards are nice, too.
-Art and Artists, Books and writers.
Please don't stress over which card to send. Any card in my mailbox will be received with a smile :-) Feel free to send a postcard that you'd like to receive.
Support Postcrossing if you can. Think of it as planting smiles around the world.
Be kind. It's important.
