Me and postcards I like

The 1s. I'm really upset about them. 1) B3unhinged rated me without any message saying, that the envie did not arrive,and asking to resend. She also ignored my messages about my readiness to resend...Really can do nothing and it's so unfair...

My name is Maria. I'm 35 years old, I live in Moscow, Russia. I really love sending and receiving postcards! Here's what I love the most:

Naked and stamped:

  • city views (single-views, with a name of the city on it)

  • peonies (nb! roses are NOT peonies:)), they are my favourite flowers

  • paper dolls (you know, where the doll is put separately from her clothes and you should cut it out to play with)

  • corgi dogs

  • old ladies by Inge Look. My Inge Look collection so far (see www.ingelook.com for particular images): 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 25, 28, 30, 31, 34, 35, 37, 40, 42, 43, 44, 46, 49, 50, 56, 58

Blank (if the swap require blank cards):

  • blank New Year and Christmas postcards (I use them for charity purposes - send them to lonely old people. There're lot's of people waiting for those, so I run out of cards very quickly)

  • all other types of postcards not mentioned above and not mentioned in my dislikes below

If the swap requires blank cards, please, DO NOT send me the city views or other touristy cards! Thank you!

If you are from Germany, please, use the stamps with flowers, if possible! I really love your Blumen series and collect those.

Other things I like to get

I also love getting

  • packed green tea and camomille tea

  • cosmetic samples (other than make-up)

  • nice stationery

  • notebooks

  • blank envelopes, nicely decorated or just colorful

  • seeds (I have a garden for them:))

  • stickers (but NOT the childish ones)

  • paper dolls

  • cross-stitch packs

  • recipes and baking add-ons (i.e. cinnamon), I'm a baking fan!

  • cosmetic masks, individually packed

I don't like

I don't like:

  • make-up testers

  • any black tea

  • ad or free cards, self-printed cards, religion-related cards, cards with the name of the country, cards with roses, saying they are peonies

  • rude and greedy people, as well as those who change profiles after the swap items are sent

Disclaimer:)

I ALWAYS send my swaps. For envelopes I make a photo of each, to show you if you need some confirmation. BUT...I'm from Russia:) Our post can be REALLY slow:) Please let me know, if you don't receive my items! I'll always resend.

Response: There's a good tradition here to send a message before giving this rating (which sometimes restrict from participating in other swaps). This swap deadline was on August 6 and the mail NEVER gets from Russia to the USA in 2 weeks. So unfair.

Comment: Thanks for the lovely card. I really like ones with a drawing or painting better than a photo! Yours is only the second card I have received from Moscow, so that makes is even more special. I hope we swap again!

Send my postcard back - Week 12

Thank you for sending my postcard back. I read in your profile that you liked paper dolls. I wished you lived closer so you could see my collection of paper dolls. I have over 100 books, all uncut. I even have the books of the ones I used to play with in the 1940's. Yes, I am old. I just turned 75 on January 29th. Shirley
