2.) Nature scenery or animals (especially horses, wolves, elephants, hawks & ravens).
3.) Saints, Kings & Queens, Princes & Princesses, Gods & Goddesses, esp. Queen Elizabeth I & II of England, Joan of Arc, Virgin of Guadalupe, any Black Madonnas, Thor, Shiva, Krisna, Ganesha, Narasimha, Kali & Durga.
4.) Mysterious things: witches (brujas/hexen), trolls, fairies, djinn, Baba Yaga, Bean Sidhe, La Llorona, Nessie, etc. Fairy tales, myths, legends, folklore, Harry Potter & Star Wars. Also dinosaurs!
5.) Cover art for books or movies, vintage posters or advertising, self-made/mail art/"found" art, art gallery or stage show announcements, hotel/resort cards, local business sales announcements, and if you are within the USA did you know you can also send odd things as mail - I've sent empty plastic pop bottles, canvas tennis shoes, flip flops, and a hula hoop!
** What to write? The author & title of the book you're reading, a good movie you've seen, what the weather's like today, what holiday you recently celebrated, a favorite quote or poem/song, or the pets you have (I have 3 cats).
** Other things I love are movies & reading, going to Renaissance Faire, Shakespeare, nature & cemetery photography, hiking in the woods, military planes & coffee. I collect Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab oils & postcards, fabric scraps, lavender soap, crow feathers, & tattoos (on myself).
