Thank you for sending me a postcard! :) I enjoy reading 📖, hiking in the woods 🌲, photographing nature 📸🍄, drinking coffee ☕, & dancing in my kitchen 👠🎶. I also write Postcards to Voters 🌊, swap books via Bookcrossing & Little Free Libraries 📚, and love donating 💰 to no-kill animal shelters.
I'm happy with anything you want to send (ad, free & handmade too) but here are my favorites:
1.) Maps, flags, architecture, famous sites, castles; traditional dress, crafts & food; religious places & items such a nazar, rosaries, symbols, etc. All holiday cards are welcome! 🕌🗼🎄
2.) Nature scenery or animals (especially horses, wolves, elephants, hawks & ravens); trees, flowers, mushrooms, lakes, mountains. 🌴🌸🐎
3.) Kings & Queens, Princes & Princesses, Saints, Gods & Goddesses, esp. Queen Elizabeth I & II of England, Virgin of Guadalupe, Black Madonnas (La Negra Madona/La Morenita/vierges noires/Częstochowa), Odin, Shiva, Krisna, Ganesha, Narasimha, Kali & Durga. 👑 🎎
4.) Mysterious things: witches (brujas/hexen), trolls, hulder, nisse/tomte, fairies, djinn, Baba Yaga, Bean Sidhe, La Llorona, Krampus, Nessie, etc. Fairy tales, myths, legends, folklore, Harry Potter & Star Wars. Also dinosaurs! 🐉👻👾
5.) Cover art for books or movies, vintage posters or ads, self-made art, gallery & stage show announcements, Renaissance Faire ads, hotel/resort cards, etc. 📚📽📺
☛ What to write? The author & title of the book you're reading, a recent movie you've seen, what your weather's like today, what holiday you just celebrated, a favorite quote or poem/song, or the pets you have (I have 3 cats). 🐈🐈🐈
☛ If you speak a language besides English, I always enjoy when you write part of the card in that language. I have greatly improved my ability to read handwritten Russian this way, and I am trying to learn more Norwegian & Swedish. 💌
☛ If you are a geocacher, here is my new travel bug for you to discover: GS5HA2 🏷. I recently got the idea for a Postcrossing bug from a Postcrosser-geocacher in France.
