About Me

Hello! I'm Ash and I love snail mail! I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband. I am a social worker and while I love my work, it can be heavy on my heart. Sending and receiving beautiful things in the mail is part of my self care. : ) I am very excited about pressed pennies of late. I have been collecting them for years. I travel a lot for work, so I have lots of opportunities for getting new pennies these days. One of my favorite things is having the perfect postcard for someone, so I am always looking to expand my collection. If a swap gives the option, I generally prefer postcards blank and in an envelope.

Some postcard themes I like best are:

3-D

Odd Shapes

Science

Space

Reading

Unusual & bizarre

Bridges/Covered Bridges

Lighthouses

Modern Art

Roadside Attractions

Food

Historical Figures

Cows

Touristy Animal PCs

State Capitols

Vintage

Famous People

PRESSED PENNIES:

Every squished penny has a place in my heart and my collection, but some of my absolute favorites are:

National Parks

State Capitols

Non-US

Historic Landmarks

Famous People

Presidential Museums

Scenes

Bridges

Events

Missions

Pennies that are not my favorite: (I know some of these are really common, so if it's what you have to trade, I will happily accept them.)

Theme parks

Chain Restaurants or chain stores (Bubba Gump, Cabella's, etc)

Pennies that say "pennycollector.com"

"I heart ___" (enter place name)

Favorite Books

Some of my favorite books I have read and enjoyed lately:

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

The Mothers by Brit Bennett

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward

Calypso by David Sadaris

Favorite Television

Atlanta, Barry, Schitt's Creek, Documentary Now, Sherlock, The Great British Baking Show, Bojack Horseman, Baskets, The Handmaids Tale, Drunk History, Big Mouth, Kingdom, Doc Martin

Favorite Podcasts

You Must Remember This

Family Ghosts
