Receive postcards

About MaryJane...


I'm a retired old (76) great grandma living in the state of Arkansas in the United States of America. Any card is welcome - just receiving one from another person is always interesting. My favorites are every card I receive - because each card is unique and it's special to hear from each person.

I collect postcards for my great grandson, Trent who is ten years old. He likes cars, trains, planes, ships, all kinds of sports, unusual animals from your country, spooky looking caves and spectacular looking volcanoes or mountains.

I also like lighthouses, covered bridges, scenery or tourist attractions from other countries. I really like the Olympics so if you have any Olympics card for me that would be great.

I would be interested in hearing what you are studying if you are in school and what you hope to do when you finish. If you are working, I would enjoy hearing what type of work you do and what kind of company you work for. I would also like to hear about your hobbies, pets, family or whatever else you would like to write about.

When I receive a postcard, I Google the name of the city where the card comes from and I have learned a lot about many cities that way. So whatever card you send you can know that I will be looking at images from your city and learning something about where you live.

I live in Sherwood, Arkansas, a small city that is just outside the state capitol city of Little Rock. I have two adult daughters who live in other states - Montana and Tennessee, and one adult son who also lives in Sherwood. I have three great grandchildren. Trent is the oldest and lives in Montana with his grandmother.

Several years ago I wrote a blog to tell about my country - especially for Postcrossers who plan to travel to the USA. It was more difficult than I thought it would be. It made me realize how little I know about my own country. You can find my blog at the website shown above. I hope you visit and leave me a comment. It is not a travelogue but just my favorite places and my memories and impressions of each state.

I have a postcard store (1500+) online at where I sell postcards. I have two more boxes of cards that I need to scan and post to my store when I get the time. Many of them are from my parents collections. My Postcrossing cards are saved for myself or Trent and are not for sale.
