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::
Puppies. That's Maggie, our Goldendoodle, as my Avatar.
-Disney characters and Disney theme parks, comic book themes, popular cartoons from your country or region.
-Space - Planets, stars, moon photos, constellations, rockets, satellites. Sci-Fi, Star Wars, Star Trek, etc.
-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.
-Music - Grateful Dead, any 60's or 70's rock, Jazz, Bluegrass, Blues, etc.
-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!
