About Me

I did not write cards for a while. My husband Dieter passed away all of a sudden December 2019.

Favorite Music

I love soul, blues and many "Oldies". Prefer dark women's voices.(Alyson Moyet, Kim Carnes, Anni Lennox etc)

Favorite Movies

Chocolate - The color purple - Sixth Sense

Favorite Television

  • Emercency Room
    • I loved "Roseanne"
    • Dr. House
    • Grey's anatomy
    • Tatort
    • Swedish and British criminal films

Favorite Crafts

I love working with paper, doing cards f.e., cards made of cloth, ATCs. I like: - rubber stamps - vintage ephemera, - stamps . I collect: - postcards - small angels - tiny teddies - pencils.


I like most kinds of postcards, but would like to get them naked ( not in an envelope) and written on.

Nice stamps make me very happy and let me easily give an extra heart.

I love art cards esp. of not so well-known artists, young artists etc., esp. fond of Frida Kahlo and ingapaltser cards.

Map cards are my favorites at the moment but I collect these written and stamped. I would be happy if we can do a private swap for these.

I also like cards showing

  • people (children)
  • people reading or writing

  • vintage portrait of a woman, esp. women with red hair

  • traditional clothing

  • places of special interest

  • cats and dogs

  • but owls and wolves would make my day. (real or drawn)

  • American presidents( and their families) - so far I have Kennedy, Nixon and Obama

  • members of royal families (f.e. England, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain etc)

I do not like cards showing:

  • dolls

  • masks

  • Dia de los Muertos

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful animal postcards! They were some of the best I've ever gotten! Thank you so much! So sorry you cannot travel. I wish there was a cure for what you have. Glad you can send out swaps, though! PS. We saw these kind of cattle when we were in Scotland. I wonder how they keep their long hair clean! LOL

Comment: Thank you for the very pretty floral card Inge! I will need to look up Maria Merian's artwork! I hope all is well with you, things are okay here, just dealing with terrible heat (46 degrees Celsius!) and some local forest fires (one started by someone setting off fireworks for a "gender reveal party" - UGH!). Otherwise my husband and I are good - staying home and staying safe. Take care!

Comment: Thank you, Inge, for the antitque photographs. They are perfect! I only have a few photos from Germany and am so happy to add these to my collection. Thanks too for the postage stamps on the envelope. I have a lot of European but not many from Germany.

lovesreward rated for NYUP Vintage PC #8 on Aug 27, 2020
Comment: Hello and thank you for the lovely PC! It's been about the same here - although a week ago it was 44 C degrees here and I thought I would just pass out and never awaken! Today it is supposed to be 38 C degrees - days like these I hate to put on clothes, ha! Take care and try to stay cool.

Can you let me know if swap has arrived, left you a message on 19th, but it is unread. Sent card on 9th August. On holiday after 24th, so would like to sort this out before if possible.
