About Marijke...


I am a psychiatric nurse, mother of 3 and grandmother of 3.
I live and have lived all my life in Ostend at the NorthSea coast. I love it here and never can go long without the sand, the sea, the dunes.
I am a herbalist, make my own remedies, preferably with things I find in local nature. I also love to craft with materials that had a life before and I am an avid reader but my favorite pastime is beïng with my family.
As for my preference for cards there's a lot of things I like, I just can't name it all.

I think handdrawn cards are very unique and special. So if you like to make your own card, please send one to me. I love mail art!(painting, drawing,collage...)

a very long list of other likes to help you :

Noa's Arc
tiles and fabric
(reprinted)vintage advertisements
cards that show multiple objects, collections
art nouveau, art deco
(children's book) illustrations

paintings or drawings of e.g. :
- Ensor (born in oostende!!!)
- reading women
- Mary Cecil Barker
- Irina Petelina
- Carl Larsson
- John Bauer
- Lennart Helje
- Lali riddle
- Inge Löök
- Sven Nordqvist
- Rudolf Koivu
- Colin Thompson
- Albert Anker
- Alechinsky
- Gustav Klimt...

I will be happy with any card you send me, the only thing I'm not really interested in are overly 'touristy' cards.

Many thanks in advance and happy postcrossing!
