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!

No anecdote?! Well here are some ideas: What‘s the craziest thing you‘ve done for love? What are your favorite shoes? How would you describe your victory dance? If you could have a superpower just for today, what would it be? What is your simplest pleasure? What would the first line of your biography/autobiography be?... Any questions? Ask 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 fashion magazines with stunning adverts, matchbox labels or cigarette cards and stamps. Oh and I am fan of gentlemen in suits, cocktails and pin ups, which make me smile.

George Barbier

Whatelse?! If there is time I dive into books. How to describe my taste? Imagine Iona Grey meets Erich Kästner for a coffee and from time to time people like Rachel Rhys or Naomi Wood joining the conversation about the roaring 20s and WW2. Sometimes I just buy a book, because of the great cover. Oh and I have a weak spot for magazines. I definitely cant leave the newsagent without buying the latest issue of Monocle, Popshot Quarterly and Harper’s Bazaar.

Another thing I really enjoy is going to the cinema. You wonder what I have seen recently? The White Crow, Little Women...Favorite movies?! Breakfast at Tiffany's, It's a wonderful Life, Mary Poppins...a bit newer...Life of Walter Mitty, The Age of Adaline, Brooklyn and Rocketman.

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: espresso with a dash of hot milk - cherry or apple crumble - tomato sauce with meatballs - sparkling wine & French Martini - washi tape - ephemera - maps - fashion & design - George Barbier & La Vie Parisienne - naughty Pin Up & Burlesque - movie stars from back in the days & handsome gentlemen - risque racy humor - surprises.

P.P.S.: At this point I should admit a few DISLIKES: touristic postcards or Zazzle & brownish faked retro postcards please not for me. I am not interested in Disney, Hello Kitty, Zentagle or Color-In, religious or spooky themes. Oh and I don't need scrapbooking & craft supplies. Sorry, I dont want to sound complaining.

Comment: Thank you for the cute owl postcard. That's a fun fact about squirrels. I have two different types of squirrels in my yard and enjoy watching their antics.

Comment: Hi Joana! Thank you very much for the flower PC with flower stamps. Pretty! Carnations are my favorite flower too! I love the yellow best! The King Protea flower is pretty! I wouldn't even know to find any. But they remind of the Carnations though.

Comment: What a lovely swap! It definitely put a smile on my face. The envelope is so nice and with such great postage stamps. I love the mail inspired something inside the envie. Thank you for it all. I like postage stamps since they are small, expressive, informative, and decorative - and mail a letter to connect and communicate with people almost anywhere. Be safe.

Comment: Thanks for the lovely story and card! I am somewhat embarrassed to say I haven't yet seen pulp fiction! It is on my list though, and maybe in the next few weeks? Hope you're well! <3 Al

Comment: Thank you for the nice card! I have been briefly once at the Düsseldorf airport (for about 2 hours because my hostfamily forgot to pick me up....). Didn't learn about the mustard during those 2 hours :D

Comment: Danke schön! I am so happy every time someone writes me in German (or Spanish). I had German for 3 years in school many years ago, but I want to keep it fresh. This morning I had to use Google translate for your card, but I learn more and more every time :D Love it! And the statement on the card and your words was exactly what I needed these days! Thank you so much!

Comment: This is an amazing swap!!! Such a bright colorful postcard with a lovely stamp. I find your question interesting; I don't know that I've ever thought of days and animals in the same way. I received your card yesterday; yesterday was a SNAKE in the USA. Again, thanks for lovely swap. See you around the swaps.

Thank you Joana for the lovely surprise in the mail that I received today. What delightful goodies inside and the birthday wishes were lovely. I had a great day and my hubby made sure it was special and I got myself a record player and currently listening to Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Sprit. xx

Happy Birthday!

Thank you! I absolutely love the postcard you sent. I even do like the flies. Never would I say this, but they're cute on their. But I don't think flies are cute in real life.

I guess I really am a winner. I got two extra from the PC Roulette Comeback July 2018 swap.

Thanks again!!
