I have collected postcards since I was in grade school - it was my main communication with my Grandfather in Germany. I collect stamps and stories - so I prefer my postcards written and stamped if possible.
I have college degrees in both Botany and Fashion Design (I am a true Gemini). I own my own business. I spend my free time taking photos of birds and working in a theater costume shop. I love to travel and dream of one-day being a true nomad (maybe with a motor home, a camel or just unlimited $$ to fly everywhere!).
Here is my wish list:
* I prefer cards that are 4" x 6" (10.8cm x 15.2 cm) or smaller so that they fit in my albums
* My "Favorites" on my postcard wall are just examples of what I like - you can send anything similar.
* Ad postcards and vintage are fine if they fit into one of these categories.
Anytime of year:
* Poisson d'Avril / April Fools' Day / April 1st
* Christmas with illustrated birds, Santa, elves/Nisse, animals, snowman
* Easter with bunnies or chickens
* bunnies, chimpanzees, camels / dromedaries / llamas
* lovebirds (the parrots) like these https://www.flickr.com/photos/themadcrafter/sets/72157632681309422/
