My Postcard Database

About Me

I'm a literature nerd and I live in Washington state.

Here's me, in my final form as a map,

mapped

Most things excite me in some way. I love birds, maps, the ocean, trains, westerns, deserts, and wigs. I'm a skeptic and I like discussing world religions, science, quackery, and freethinking.

My hobbies include photography, sculpture, bookbinding, reading, writing, finding new music, cooking, gardening, arranging and tending to my many succulents and cacti, drawing, and playing videogames and card games.

birds on a line

Here is my parrot, Max:

max

He says "I love you", "Hey baby", "Oh chico", "Stop screaming!" and other things.

Likes

I'll love anything involving:

  • maps, anywhere is fine, even ones you made up,

  • birds (especially: quail, parrots, budgies, kakapo, birds of paradise, songbirds, robins - English and American, crows, kiwis, pretty much any bird) - pictures of them, tiny figurines, stuffed animals, cards, postcards, wrapping paper, stickers, washi tape, anything with birds; I'm absolutely, completely nuts about birds,

  • pretty papers/vellum/stuff I can write on for junk journaling,

  • stickers (nice ones for journaling/cards),

birds

I Collect:

  • round 1" pins, especially with maps or birds on them,

  • foreign coins, especially pre-Euro ones,

  • used stamps, especially from places far away and countries that don't exist anymore,

  • strange and unusual maps (aeronautical ones are my favs),

  • postcards - See below for my country and state postcard collection spreadsheet - please send me anything that's still missing! ,

  • playing cards - the kind where each card face is different. If you have incomplete decks and are willing to send single cards, I collect Aces of Spades and Jacks of Spades,

  • your top 5 go-to jokes (I'm not easily offended and I love nerdy ones too. Puns are also great. Anything,)

  • a landscape of your mind (I've received a handful of these in the few years I've had this up. They are the most reliably interesting thing a person can make for me.)

Postcards

I'm pretty detailed and meticulous with my postcard collecting, so please check out my database if you have a moment: My New and Improved Postcard Collection

If you have anything that's still shaded in hot pink, please send it to me! (I don't even care if it's already written on) If you have a card of higher quality than the one I have listed, I'd appreciate that, too.

A huge thank you to those who have helped me and those who are always on the look-out for me! I appreciate it so much.

In addition to those place-specific cards, I also love the following: street scenes, maps, national parks, birds, the desert, trains, vintage roadside motels/foreign hotels, tornadoes/crazy weather, geologic abnormalities, mines/quarries, nuclear power, ugly freeways, rain/rainy streets, aerial lifts/gondola lifts/funiculars, indigenous people, local costumes, interesting landscapes. I also love strange, photographic portrait postcards.

Dislikes

  • not crazy about multi-view postcards unless they're from a hard-to-find country.

  • postcards sent in flimsy envelopes that arrive with bent corners. :`(

WW - Dec. 2019

Thank you so much for the holiday card and recipe! I'll have to give them a try, I love a good rum ball!
Happy New Year!

Cgscdy on Jan 1, 2020:

Thank you for the card and winter goodies.Your art holiday sounds AWESOME seems it should definitely be added to the calander 😊.So sorry it took awhile to thank you but I think I have caught every bug going around and had no energy to look through my mail.

sherba31 on Dec 30, 2019:

Hello again. Of course the held mail was delivered and your card arrived for WW. Thanks again and I hope you found a mic cover youtube vid. Would love to see/hear how it turned out.

sherba31 on Dec 29, 2019:

Hi there and thank you for granting a WW for me. I have the Informed Delivery notice-scan of your envie, but mail was on hold and still not delivered. I wanted to thank you anyway and hope my bundle of mail arrives shortly.

kiddomerriweather on Dec 27, 2019:

Thank you for the Christmas card and stickers for my December WW! Looks like you're going to have an overflow of jams and I'm going to have a bunch of LEGO's I'm not going to know what to do with. I got even more for Christmas! I'm having fun putting them together though. Have a fantastic 2020!

Mimosagirl on Dec 26, 2019:

Thank you for the Dec WW. I love getting cards through the holidays. It really helped me ward off the "blues". Have a wonderful New Years and see you again soon in next years swaps/wishes :)

Mimosagirl on Dec 26, 2019:

Thank you for the Dec. WW the card and little stickers :)

manders2280 on Dec 25, 2019:

Thank you for your Christmas wishes and mousing advice. When you remarked on the long, dark nights I looked up Seattle's latitude and found that you are 2° north of us and that's significant. For the last several days I was helping cook Chinese food for our Hanukkah dinner at my synagogue and now I'm catching up on mail.

CariahCreates on Dec 24, 2019:

Thank you for the lovely Christmas card from my WW wishlist
