Here in Paris, where I live since many years now, I am 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 are old passions, some are new ones, I feel like an onion, with several layers.
►You can just have a look at my favorites, 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
►food, recipes, 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.
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,
Ponds and rivers and all that's related to water especially freshwater, trees, forests, mountains, rural views, drawings of flowers and plants, and also gardens, including vegetables ones,...
► from your country:
Show it to me through maps (old and new, I love maps!), wildlife, food, patterns, fabrics, craft, design, decorative arts, artefacts.
GF welcome too! Lou Paper (USA) as well!
► wild animals from snails to much bigger ones, wolves, all bears, otters, and many others (I love and I'm curious about all animals), plus an increasing interest in birds and marine wildlife!
& all species in danger of extinction (animals, plants)
► music and musical instruments, comics, cinema, photo, culture in general, street art, painting (modern art and also more classic art sometimes), ... postcards from art museums, natural history museums and other scientific museums much welcome!
► books and writing: books, bookshops, writers, papers,...
I'm not a collector but nice stamps are welcome, also Postcrossing stamps & Europa stamps too, esp. in 2021 (endangered fauna)
About the "don't" :)))
I'm not so fond of free, ad cards (except old ones) and multiviews; and I love real postcards :)
Also I'm not too crazy about monuments and city views (photos of cities) on postcards [except rare countries]... (but I like illustrations and urban sketching very much).
Searching for ideas about what to write?
Please, have a look here : http://melilotblog.blogspot.com/p/blog-page_10.html
It's a list of questions, you can choose to write about some of them in your postcard (please write the number of the question you're answering), and you can ask me questions too just by adding the number on your postcard (I'll answer in the thank you message).
Of course, this is totally optional. Just a funny idea I picked somewhere.
You may receive a postcard from me with an answer to a random question too, if I pick your address!
Envelope welcome, if you can, to protect the postcard, thank you.
