Hello fellow postcrossers,
My name is Martha, 72 years young and happily retired.
I like to go to exhibitions, museums, all cultural and/or historic and loved to travel. Due to an unfortunate accident, making me walk only with the aid of a walking cane, travel far away is out of the question, but I have many happy memories. And I love orchids in whatever shape, colour and/or size.
I have a slight preference (but in no particular order) in cards for:
* christmas cards in november/december
* birthdaycards in april
* Damavik cards from Belarus
* Greetings from..... Postallove: already have USA, Poland, China, Taiwan, Belgium, Brighton-England, Chech Republic, Ukraine, Netherlands, Japan, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Luxembourg, France, Lithuania, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Peru, Denmark, Austria, Canada, Portugal, Russia, Brazil, India, United Kingdom, Hungary, Cyprus
I also love the alternative greetings from cards, I already have a lot of them and like them all.
* everything around tea
*april 2016: love to start a collection of foreign alphabets, so if you have them, please send them to me. I received already Belarus, part of Bulgarian, Dutch !, part of Japanese and the Iroha order alphabet, Alef-bet from Istael, Russian, f.i. J. Bem, Serbian, Frakturschrift, ex-libris Greyfriars monastery-Stockholm, Irish, Kurrentschrift, Latgola (eastern Latvia), early cyrillic from 9th century Bulgaria, Finnish, Ukraine, Welsh, Cherokee, South /Korea,Sutterlin-Schrift, Official Script Eastern Han Dynasty, alternative alphabet for little and big people, unser deutsches alphabet, medieval script, architectural alphabet, alphabet for deaf people, Hungarian, Latvian ornaments and some single marks.
* Egyptian and Celtic history
* international fairytales
* books (old and new)
* cats, especially blue cats by Irina Zenyuk and her calendar cards
Please no religious cards, folded cards and only cards from your own country.
But all other cards are more than welcome.
I like reading fantasy and novels, preferably in English, going to the theater and concerts and watching tv (am a fan of crime series) and love watching BBC programmes like Strictly come dancing, Escape to the country and Bargain Hunt (about antiques) in all its forms.
I like singing in classical choir concerts on a project base, at the moment I am studying Mozart's Requiem and Ramirez' Misa Criola. I am also a big fan of the Irish folkgroup the Dubliners for more than 40 years.
Look forward to all your cards and stories and wish you all happy postcrossing.
Expired postcards??? Yes, ofcourse lots and lots, like anyone else, but I stopped wondering about what happened with them, but I still live in hope one day they will come to life and luckily, now and then they do.
