Sometimes I receive very damaged postcards, this happens more at times. If you can, could you please send me yours in an envelope ? Thank you very much !
You may receive mine in an envelope too.
Here in Paris I will be glad to receive and to send all sorts of postcards.
Here is a list of themes I like in general, and then on postcards if you need inspiration...
Some of this are old passions, some are more new, I feel like an onion, with several layers.
♥♥♥♥♥ You can just have a look at my f a v o r i t e s, which are postcards I don't have :)
If you don't have time to watch them all, maybe you can watch those from your country for example, https://goo.gl/Rsw8ct
♣ f o o d, r e c i p e s, markets, foodshops,...
I have developped a real passion for food those last years.
I like finding good products, trying new recipes, new combinations.
I love the colours and the smells of markets and nice food shops. And I love discovering new tastes, this is endless.
♣ i l l u s t r a t i o n
You can discover many artists here and I'm very fond of many aspects of this creativity, so don't hesitate to send me something in this category if you want,
♣ n a t u r e
Ponds and rivers and all that's related to water especially freshwater, trees, forests, mountains, rural views, drawings of flowers and plants,...
♣ f r o m y o u r c o u n t r y
Show it to me through maps (old and new, I love maps!), flora and wildlife, food, patterns, fabrics, craft, design, decorative arts.
♣ some a n i m a l s like wolves, otters, crows and ravens, bees,
and in general species in danger of extinction (animals, plants,...)
♣ m u s i c and musical instruments (old and new),
c i n e m a,
c o m i c s,
and many other forms of art,
especially characters or pictures from the counterculture,
♣ b o o k s and writing: books, bookshops, writers, papers,...
♣ p a i n t i n g s:
A lot of modern art,
Also more classic art, but not all of it, so it's difficult to name everything: I do love Caravaggio, Georges de la Tour, Dürer, William Turner, Brueghel, ...
ↈ Nice stamps are welcome, Europa stamps (who are often nice) too! Have a look here for 2017 http://www.posteurop.org/StampCollections ↈ
♠♠♠♠♠ About the "don't"
I'm not soooo fond of free, ad cards (except old ones) and multiviews; and I love real postcards :)
Please, no city views, no monuments, no buildings, ...
& I don't do private swaps for the moment.
What to write? I find it interesting on a little postcard with very little space and a very brief contact if you share a thought, a taste, a hobby, and talk about it : it can be a book, a film, a travel, a recipe, a website, a joke, a nice sentence, comments about the postcard itself, something interesting about your country, anything, exactly as you would do with a friend you already know :))
