About Me

Hello from Berlin! I am a wife and mother of two grown children. Since 2015 I have been retired.

Hobbies and Interests

  • Photography: Architecture, landscapes, lightmoods, reflections and close-ups belong to my favorite photo subjects.

  • Books: Especially murder mystery and crime novels. Favorite authors among others: Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Mary Higgins Clark, Donna Leon, Charlotte Link.

  • Film/TV: Midsomer Murders/Inspector Barnaby, Lewis, Miss Marple, Father Brown, Sherlock Holmes (the old series).

  • Postcards, all kinds. My favorite subjects include: map cards, city views, chronicle cards (Chronik-Karten), typical houses of your country/town, shop windows, light-houses, windmills, landscapes, the sea, rain, snow, mailboxes, cards related to books/reading. I love Snoopy, snowmen, the street photography by Saul Leiter, the paintings and illustrations by Timothy Easton, Edward Hopper, August Macke, Ole West, the old Dutch painters, Sven Nordqvist (Pettersson and Findus), The New Yorker, Atelier Nouvelles Images and many more ...

  • Seasonal cards, especially for Christmas. Every kind of Christmas cards is welcome. A Christmas stamp on the postcard/envelope would be nice, too.

  • Anything related to writing and paper crafting: calligraphy, origami, stickers and especially clear stickers, rubber stamps, washi tape, various papers, pens and inks, notecards, pretty stationery.

  • Mail art, handmade envelopes, handwritten letters.

  • Airmail envelopes and airmail labels.

  • Stamps. It would be very nice if you could put stamps on your envelope or postcard instead of postage labels, if possible.

  • ATCs. I discovered them here on Swap-bot.

  • Quotes / words of wisdom.

Some Favorites

  • Seasons: autumn and winter, Christmas time with its joyful spirit.

  • Flowers: tulips and red poppies.

  • Colors: blue, teal, turquoise and orange, but I'm fine with other colors, too.

Not for Me

Please avoid sending me food and drink items. Thank you!

Comment: Thank you so much for the surprise envelope, I love all the items. Berlin: I love the city so much. I visited it a couple of times with my parents when the Wall was still there. 1,5 years ago I came back, on my own, without husband and children, just "me-time" . I had to use a map, a combination of "a long time ago and a lot has changed". I want to come back very soon!
Response: Welcome back to Berlin and thanks to you for your kind words and rating. Berlin is really a great city where I love to live.

Hi Gittie! Thank you for these awesome goodies you sent in response to the card I mailed to Rona and Dave. You did not need to send me a thing, I was thrilled to wish them well in their new marriage! Such a wonderful time in a woman’s life! Thanks for letting us share in your joy!
