Hello, thanks for viewing my profile!
My special focus for 2022 will be Queen Elizabeth. Do you have a new card for my collection? https://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/albums/72157645354146980
My pride and joy is my Elvis Presley postcard collection.
I am ALWAYS looking for new Elvis cards!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/sets/72157648766817757/
I live in the capital city of Canada and my hobbies include crochet, knitting, Animal Crossing, music, and eating (way too much) Mexican food!
I love tourist/view cards. The only thing I don't care for is animal cards. I really do appreciate all cards I receive. I love a decorated backside (I'm addicted to washi tape!) and a nice message as much as the visual on the front!
I love and collect:
- 60s/70s motels (the tackier, more outdated the decor and signs the better!) -> https://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/albums/72157645293504595
- covered bridges ->
- Cows Ice Cream -> https://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/albums/72157649315713351

You can see my collection of postcards at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/akaroxy2/collections/72157645192809432/
My favourites here are cards I would like to have in my collection.
I hope the above didn't sound demanding. All I really hope is that the card represents YOU - your likes, your town, your hobbies, etc. They can be prepaid postcards, new, vintage, or those you've made... I'm just happy to be a part of this great project and will love any card sent my way!
Do you remember the first postcard you ever got? Mine was from my great aunt and uncle while they were on holiday in Florida.
