Hi everyone! I live with my husband and cat near the beach in the northern suburbs of sunny Perth. I can hear the waves on a still night and love to go for walks along the coast, swimming or brunch at one of the many cafes. At home I love gardening and being in nature, exploring my surroundings on road trips, cooking and baking, sketching, painting, papercraft and reading. I meditate, love aromatherapy and love music and movies and a good tv series.
I love art in all its forms including architecture, fashion, pop culture and social customs and I’m fascinated by the history of these.
I have many collections- that I use! including fountain pens and inks, washi tape, stationery, vintage china, perfume, crystals, vintage clothes and books!
I’m interested in learning about the way you live, the environment you live in, and the enchantment to be found in the everyday. What do you do in your free time? What does a typical day look like for you? What did you eat for dinner? What is something interesting ir strange that’s happened to you? Or just tell me about the postcard you and sending me, or introduce yourself. I’d love to hear about your life.
I’d like all types of postcards so feel free to send me what you have or to get creative and make one. I also love decorated and doodled cards so please share your art if you like.
I collect stamps and maxicards so these are much appreciated if you have them (stamps on the postcard), and ideally no folded greeting cards or advertising postcards. I do prefer a well-travelled postcard so no envelopes unless of course you would like to create some mail art on the envelope :)
Some ideas of what things interest me and so ideas of kinds of postcards I’d love to receive (although of course all are welcome):
Animals (especially those from where you live, and donkeys and puffins ❤️)
Flowers and landscapes
Your city or town
Places you’ve been
Buildings, architecture, streetscapes including doors, windows, anything pretty or interesting
People going about their lives
Maps and flags
Illustrations and art
Ethnic art and culture
Mythology and magical creatures
Lighthouses, abandoned buildings, bridges
The universe and science including astronomy, astrology, archaeology, geology/ mineralogy and geography.
Retro pin-ups and fashion
Vintage or retro images or postcards
Art gallery/museum images and pieces
Greetings From and tourist postcards
Quirky, funny or cheeky postcards
Famous people and current events
Your own drawings of the things that surround you
**And, anything COVID related. I’d love to hear too about your experience of the pandemic as there are so many lives affected and so many stories to tell.
These are just some ideas- all are welcome :-)
I will appreciate anything you send me (and I will register the day it arrives)
