Hi, my name is Saskia and I live in the Netherlands with my exotic husband and our two kids. I signed up for postcrossing cos I love sending & receiving 'real' mail and I'd love to pass this on to our kids (now teenagers).
I just l♡♡♡♡ve postcards and I have a preference for ♥square postcards♥ (like the 14*14cm Correspondances-postcards from France), simply cos of the shape and cos they're quite rare (at least here in NL)!
Most of all I would like to hear about 'not-everyday-things' (please don't just mention your name, where you live and that you have 2 cats). Rather tell me something that amazed or surprised you recently (like the colour of the sky, a butterfly in winter etc.) or a fond childhood memory. It would also be cool to hear a little (funny) anecdote, or tell me something about your day or about your favourite band/book/film/quote/food; something you would recommend me to listen to/read/watch/try.
What I love:
- going for walks in the nearby woods
- the colours green & purple
- soul & funk music
- reading English novels
- anything British: ♥ Union Jack ♥ jelly babies ♥ food ♥ buses ♥ Charlie & Lola ♥ tea ♥ scones ♥ TV-series and all the funny varieties of ♥ 'Keep Calm & Carry On' ♥ ;-)
- baking, especially ♥cupcakes♥ and I'm a big fan of ♥chocolate♥ too!
♥ Happy, funny, colourful, cute postcards :-)
♥ vintage ♥ retro ♥ nostalgic postcards,
♥ kitsch postcards (or so-called "ugly postcards")
♥ text / typography postcards (esp. 70s and disco style!)
♥ Keep Calm & ....
♥ post(crossing) postcards
♥ turtles postcards (for our daughter)
♥ Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit & Pirates of the Caribbean (for our son)
or postcards related to anything I've written above would be much appreciated :D
(but no black & white postcards please, unless vintage)
My Favourites can give you an idea of the sort of cards I'd reeeaaally like to receive :-) They contain both cards I have and haven't received yet.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
PS (American) Postcrossing-friends: I'm a huge ♥Prince♥ fan and am heartbroken now that he's passed away so suddenly :'-(
I would reeeeaaaally appreciate it if you could send me anything PRINCE / PAISLEY PARK / PURPLE related! If you don't have any such cards in your collection but you know the shop around the corner/in town does, I'm happy to wait an extra few days before you actually send me a Prince card! Thank you xx
