I'm Birgit from Austria. I love the little things in life that make you smile - finding nice mail in my mailbox definitely included! I love all kinds of cards, but especially mapcards from all over the world. Besides the typical tourist cards that I enjoy too here is a list of other themes I like:
*) tea, coffee
*) vintage ladies/couples
*) Geishas/Maiko, pagodas, Japanese gardens
*) black and white, sepia
*) funny cards
*) animals, esp.piggies, owls, monkeys, panda bears, koalas, penguins, elephants, giraffes, zebras, turtles, racoons, hedgehogs, frogs, ladybirds, butterflies, cats and dogs (I have a Westhighland White Terrier so if you have a card with one on it, that would be perfect!)
*) traditional clothes
*) Russian nesting dolls - Matryoshka, Babushka
*) Amish people
*) food and drinks - including sweet things like muffins, cupcakes, macaroons, cakes, ice-cream,...
*) books, reading and writing
*) movie posters
*) cards with texts like a little story, recipe, sentiment,...
*) (garden) gnomes, trolls, leprechauns
*) themeparks, e.g.Disneyland
*) Jetoy, Peanuts, Moomins, Sarah Kay, Barbapapa and other characters/cartoons
*) Lali riddle cards
*) interesting/famous people, e.g.Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn,...
*) Art Nouveau, esp.Alphonse Mucha
*) royal families
*) Anne Geddes
*) Marjolein Bastin
*) birthday cards in August (my BD is on Aug.17th... is there a BD-twin somewhere out there??)
*) Through Postcrossing I have come across Kaj Stenvall and Inge Löök cards; I think they are so funny - I'd love to get some too, if possible!!
*) Christmas cards in December
*) No free cards, please!
Nice postage stamps on the card are appreciated too!
So, cu soon! :-)
