Hello! :) I'm Maria, a writer, bibliophile & cineaste. I like art, design & vintage things.
I love all the postcards you will send to me, but if you'd like to help me with my collection, please read my wish list below. Be warned though, it's really long...
I seem to be collecting images/paintings of people reading, violins and vintage women with large, elaborate hats, or women with parasols or umbrellas, also Judith beheading Holofernes. Others are:
- Balthus, the Pre-Raphaelites, Vallotton (and other Les Nabis), Wayne Thiebaud, Caravaggio
> Vintage Illustrations, Posters
- Erte, Barbier, vintage fashion
> Children's Book Illustrations/Fairy Tales: Edmund Dulac, Willy Pogany, Warwick Goble, H.J. Ford, Walter Crane, etc.
> Photos/Posters of Classic films/Movies/Stars
- Romy Schneider, Classic Hollywood, especially the screwball comedies, James Stewart, Gregory Peck, Katharine Hepburn, etc.
- Jane Austen-related images
- Atelier Nouvelles Images (What can I say? I like things organized neatly)
- MTV's Daria, Dilbert, Tintin, Where's Wally?
I love your postcards with long messages & beautiful stamps written. If you happen to have some art-related stamps, I'd be very happy to see them on your postcards too. Note cards (folded cards in an envelope) are OK too if you'd like to send those. If you're an artist & would love to share your work with me (on a postcard), I'd be honored to receive your art.
If you don't have anything related to my interests, it's OK; send me anything you also like.
Don't know what to write? Here are some ideas:
Tell me about your day, what book/s you are reading now, your favorite quote, or favorite film/s. Or list 5 random facts about yourself, or share something about your country that you think is very interesting.
I will upload all cards received to my wall, and here's an old archive from 2013: http://tinyurl.com/995chbq
Thanks! I look forward to your postcards. :)
