Receive postcards

About Melissa...

Hello there friend! I'd like to preface this by saying the following is just a bit about myself and my interests. Please do not feel the need to apologize for what you send. I am just happy to receive something in the mail!

I live in Portland, Oregon with my four cats, Saffron, Percy, Mr. Poole and Floof.

I work in a medical non-profit that services affordable healthcare clinics across the nation and do custom pet portraits in my spare time. I am a supporter of no-kill shelters, women's reproductive rights and civil liberties. I like to collect feathers, so if you have one to sent, please do! Be sure to freeze it for a day prior so to kill mites. I recently lost a lot of my feathers to mites :/

Yo hablo espanol, mas o menos. I've been trying to keep up with my Spanish since college and even had a pen pal in Mexico for a bit. We would exchange letters in English and Spanish so we could both practice (and send back corrections). Let me know if you are interested in doing this with me. It is a lot of work to write two letters!

I have a degree in Fine art with a minor in art history. Though I am an artist and like art very much, I would rather not receive postcards of art, or at least famous works of art. I have studied and seen many works (including the Mona Lisa) so I would much rather see something not so famous, but unique to me, especially ones by women and minorities or someone who is famous locally.

I also like things that are unique, so if you make postcards, even better, please send one to me! Historical dress, vintage photos, vintage travel posters and vintage advertisements are of interest and I have a thing for foxes. I am interested in and have many books on folklore, legends and things of that nature. Krampus welcome anytime! I am into tarot (I have multiple decks) and astrology (both western and eastern). I was born into the house of Leo and year of the wooden tiger, but would enjoy reading about your astrological sign also!

I also love making cakes and pies on special occasions (my favorite is lemon meringue). I have a recipe for lemon meringue pound cake that I really want to try. I'm not a huge fan of making cookies, too much repetition. Unless they are meringues (do you sense a theme here?). Is there such a thing as recipe postcards? Perhaps you could send me your favorite recipe!

Of course, anything I receive from you will be delightful, don't feel obligated to send something I have mentioned!
