About Me

Hi there.

What shall I tell you about me?! I love postcards and handpicked stories. Surprise me with a little anecdote of the everyday life. Combined with a picture on the back and a stunning stamp up in the right corner. Sounds perfect to me!

By the way I love everything from before the 1960s. I am always on the hunt for vintage curiosities, like snapshots of everyday life, newspaper comic strips, popular science charts, as well as adverts, cigarette cards or stamps. Oh and I am fan of gentlemen in suits, cocktails and pin ups, which make me smile.

At this point I have to admit a few dislikes: touristic postcards, QR-code stamps or Zentangle belong to the category *dull 'n' lifeless. Disney, Hello Kitty or Zazzle PC not for me, please. Sorry, I dont want to sound complaining.

Beach Music

Whatelse?! If there is time I dive into books. How to describe my taste? Imagine Sarah Winman meets Zadie Smith for a coffee and from time to time people like Erich Kästner or Max Frisch joining the conversation. Sometimes I just buy a book, because of the great cover. Oh and I have a weak spot for magazines. I cant leave the newsagent without buying the latest issue of Frankie, Little White Lies and 1843 (The Economist).

Another thing I really enjoy is going to the cinema. You wonder what I have seen recently? The Greatest Showman, Star Wars,Three Billboards Outside Ebbing - Missouri, The Commuter...Favorite movies?! Breakfast at Tiffany's, It's a wonderful Life, Mary Poppins...a bit newer...Life of Walter Mitty, The Age of Adaline and Perfect Sense.

Well, I hope I could give you a foggy hint about myself. I am looking forward to hearing from you and even more to getting to know you. Smiles, Joana

PS.: Still unsure what to send? Well here are some more hints: minimalsm - black coffee with a dash of hot milk - cherry crumble - gelato - washi tape - ephemera - typography & letterpress - wanderlust - surprises.

Comment: Thank you for the ice cream card! My favourite flavour is raspberry ripple, although I like most fruity flavours! You're right, we are still in winter here but have hardly had any snow, just a few flakes now and again. Happy swapping :)
