Every postcard I receive delights me so my favorites list is of postcards I do not have.
The list below is just to make things easier for you not demands. I appreciate postcards of all sorts (including things not on the list). Enjoy whatever you send because I will enjoy it when I get it.
I prefer stamped postcards and no envelopes please. I am not a stamp collector but I appreciate the stamps used as much as the postcards. I WILL NOT SEND DIRECT SWAP POSTCARDS JUST FOR THE STAMPS (DON'T ask if you are not interested in postcards. the point of this group and not stamp collecting). Also, please do not send envelopes with multiple blank postcards.
Please make sure the ID numbers are very clearly written. I can't see yellow or lime green markers.
I like views of country/city, history, architecture, archaeology, art (but not abstract, manga or anime), landscapes, geologic formations, stars, aurora borealis, rainbows, animals, birds, butterflies, bees, flowers, trees,tall ships (masted ships), fountains, clocks, bells, candles, royalty, people in national regalia/costume, national celebrations/festivals, national holidays, especially Christmas and New Year (religious and non-religious), spirituality (any kind), postcards with inspirational or funny quotations (I translate them using Google translate but if the characters are non-roman I would need the translations written on the back), the colour green and anything sparkly. I like printed postcards of your own photos too.
I have decided to make a theme of clocks, giant clocks, floral clocks, clocks in towers, astronomical clocks, musical clocks. Different views of the same clock are just fine.
My hobbies include visiting people, cooking, flower gardening, hiking, nature photography, calligraphy, reading non-fiction books and genealogy. I work in a college library.
ABOUT THE NAME 'MOOSE JAW'
One of the most commonly asked questions is, “How did Moose Jaw get its name?”
The most likely theory is that the name comes from a Cree word, “Moosegaw”, which means ‘warm breezes’.
