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.
Some ideas for you to consider::
-Cartoon characters, children's books, Disney characters and Disney theme parks, comic book themes.
-Space - Planets, stars, moon photos, constellations, rockets, satellites.
-Cathedrals, Churches, Saints, the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Pope Francis and other religious-themed cards would be greatly appreciated.
-Sports, especially my favorite teams: the Chicago Cubs (baseball) and the Green Bay Packers (NFL Football).
-Magic - especially Houdini, Slydini, Thurston, classic magic posters and photos.
-I'm a big fan of the U.S. rock and roll band, the Grateful Dead. Any card related to the Grateful Dead, Dead & Co., Psychedelia, or to 60's and 70's music in general - The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Allman Brothers, Clapton, etc. I also love Jazz, and visit New Orleans often just to hear New Orleans-style Jazz (and to enjoy the restaurants there!).
-Trains - any kind, from real locomotives, to Thomas the Train or other fictional train characters, streetcars, trams, subway cars.
-Fotofolio postcards are wonderful. Musicians, celebrities, politicians, artists.
-Map postcards are always welcome, as well as iconic buildings, or city views.
Please don't stress over which card to send. Any card in my mailbox will be received with a smile :-)
Best wishes, Peace, and Happy Postcrossing to all!
