About Me

Hi! My name is Sue and I live in semi-rural South East Queensland.

I'm a regular supporter of several animal charities and one of my passions is to help save the Tasmanian devil from extinction. I help fundraise for the Save The Tasmanian Devil Appeal, and I also sponsor two devils at Devils@Cradle in Tasmania.

Favorite Books

I'm an avid reader and love books so much I have run out of room to put them all! I mostly like reading young adult books and I really enjoy dystopian, apocalyptic, and paranormal books, but I also read some historical, fantasy and science fiction. I love discovering new Australian authors. My Goodreads link is at the top of the page.

Favorite Movies

I enjoy a wide range of movies, but especially the Disney animations, mysteries, thrillers and action movies. I'm a huge fan of James Dean and Arnold Schwarzenegger and I love Studio Ghibli movies. My all time favourite movies are Rebel Without A Cause, My Neighbour Totoro, the Terminator movies and Close Encounters Of The Third Kind.

Favorite Television

Some of my favourite TV shows are Seinfeld, Once Upon A Time, Madam Secretary, Supernatural, Medium, The Goodies, Sleepy Hollow, Blindspot, The X Files and My Kitchen Rules. I also love watching the documentaries by David Attenborough and shows about weather phenomena.


I love collecting postcards from around the world and learning interesting little facts from people who send them.

I especially love postcards that depict a country's native wildlife, city views, landscapes, and pictures of the night sky including auroras, but all postcards are always appreciated!

I prefer postcards sent without envelopes.

I don't collect stamps so I am quite happy to receive prepaid postcards.

My postcards are on Flickr and organised into countries, animals, birds, maps, cemeteries, maxicards and Postallove Greetings From cards. Link is at top of profile.

Please do not send me postcards that are advertising (unless it's for something that I like), handmade, or contain rude, crude, or explicit content in any way shape or form. But I am happy to receive your own photos made into postcards!


I'm a keen amateur photographer and a nature and wildlife enthusiast.

I have a blog where I share my photography and encounters with nature and wildlife in Australia. Blog link is at the top of the page if you'd like check it out.

I'm a taphophile - someone who likes cemeteries - and I love studying headstones and photographing graves and cemeteries.

I also love ghost hunting and like investigating things and reading about ghost hunters or watching TV shows about them, like The Other Side and Hauntings Australia.

Comment: What an adorable little guy -- and the matching stamp, too! He looks a lot like one we have here in AZ which is called a kangaroo rat. He builds mounds of sticks, etc. as a nest, and is known for finding shiny things and hiding them away in his nest. I suspect they may be distant cousins. Thanks, and happy swapping!
Response: You're welcome! :)

Hi Sue, thank you for the unassigned card in Postcard Roulette 4! I love this gorgeous seahorse & its built-in stamp! For a time, the Monterey Bay Aquarium here in California had a special sea horse exhibition, and these creatures are amazing in their variety. I love the Totoro tape you used, too. AND, the lines & lines of text--and I thought I could squeeze it in! A long message is always the best! Thanks a million!
