About Me

I'm a 36-year-old teacher, living with my husband and our bird Tiko in a large city in the south of the Netherlands..

I am a World War II re-enactor for about 10 years now. Depending on the event, I play the role of a nurse or a member of the Dutch resistance. It's amazing to teach children about life during World War II and let them touch items which are normally only displayed in museums.

I'm a collector of postcards and elongated coins (pressed pennies) So if you have any pressed pennies lying around which you're willing to send to me will be rewarded with a postcard of your choice.

Always willing to do a private swap!

I'm collecting:

  • Postcards (see my fav. list below)

  • World War II items

  • Elongated coins (pressed pennies)

  • Tea (see my fav. list below)

  • Souvenirs (e.g. magnets)

  • Books

  • Bags

  • Hand cream

  • Socks (EUR size 39/ no toe socks please)

  • Turquoise and pink are my favorite colors

  • Bookmarks (e.g.with quotes)

  • Turquoise jewelry

  • Lipbalm (e.g Burts Bees & EOS)

  • Anything with a coconut flavor/smell

  • Elongated coins

  • Marilyn Monroe

  • Geisha

  • Sushi

  • Stickers or other material to decorate postcards with

  • Royal Family

  • My kakariki Tiko ( a parakeet species from New Zealand) toys or snacks for birds are always welcome!

Comment: Thank you much for the Tulip PC and no, you haven't sent this one before. So, I take it you love Tulips. They are on my list of favorites. But I love Carnations most of all ! Thank you very much for joining my swap.
Comment: Thank you for the nice washi samples and the cute stickers!! You packed them perfectly!!
Comment: Thank you for the perfect postcard with the smiling mailman. As soon as I saw it I knew I was going to add it to my art journal. Alas, I also do not have a fancy mailbox. Maybe I'll just have to buy one and use it inside my house for decoration and to store all the lovely postcards I've received. You stay safe, too!
