I live near St. Louis, Missouri. I am an accountant and live with my husband. We have two grown daughters who are living on their own.
I have lived in Biblis and Hanau, Germany and have traveled to many countries and almost all of the United States. Besides exploring the world, I love reading all sorts of books, cats, going for long walks and bike rides, counted cross stitch, scrapbooking, tea for breakfast, dark chocolate for lunch, and searching for old postcards in antique shops for those who love to receive them.
I enjoy all my cards. Sometimes it's the picture, or what someone writes to me that is special, or the stamps or stickers. You can look at my favorites for ideas. My favorites are cards that I have received that I've especially liked. Here are some other suggestions:
--If you come from a country that doesn't have very many Postcrossers, please send a tourist card.
--Pictures of where you live, your city or village, scenic views, people, cathedrals, temples, or culture, especially if there is something about the view that is original to your part of the world
--UNESCO world heritage sites
--Antique postcards or old photographs, especially before 1960, of people posing or doing things
--Photography, art, recipe cards, or antiquity from your country, including watercolor, folk art or still life (bread, cheese, wine, tea)
--Trolls and dwarves, fairy tales and legends from your country
--Postcrossing stamps, if your country has them
Handmade cards are welcome. If you draw, you are most welcome to draw on my card. You can tell me a little bit about yourself, explain about the postcard you are sending, tell me some history or what you love about where you live, or tell me what you had to eat or did today that was fun, what you are reading, or about your cat, or your favorite tea.
Thank you for reading!
