My name is Laure, I am a caregiver, working in a nursing home specialized for people with Alzheimer and other senile dementias. And I love my job ! If you work in a social/ medical field, I’d like to know what made you choose this path and what you like/hate about it !

I live in Marseille, south of France, with my rescued dog, Lucky, a 9 years old English setter (his estimated birthday is 12 march 2015) . I’m originally from Switzerland and I absolutely love cows (of course I love all animals as well).

I love sending / receiving postcards and letters since forever ! I am on Postcrossing of course, and the limitations there are so frustrating ! I want to send more and receive more mail !

My dad recently passed away (cancer, I’m 100% ok talking about it if it’s something you’d like to discuss) and was a huge postcard collector, so now I have way too many postcards waiting to be sent all over the world and I absolutely can’t restrain myself from buying every postcards I see so the collection is growing ! I need to send everything !

When I don’t work, I spend my time walking my dog and exploring the world with him, he loves to hunt butterflies (don’t worry he never catches any) and he’s the best at cuddles and being dumb cute. I adopted him in September 2021 so he was already almost 7 years old and i have no idea what was his life before his rescue. But it must haven’t been lots of fun.

If you have or used to have a pet, please tell me everything about it ! I love stories of connection between humans and animals so much.

My mother in law is a big stamps collector so I give her every stamps I get on enveloppes for her birthday & for Christmas and she is always so happy (she lost her collection a few year ago in an inundation). She’s the cutest.

I collect washi samples so I’m always happy to see them as extras ! I try to fill a big journal with every washi tapes ever (yes this is impossible but it doesn’t matter !)


  • Animals, especially cows and dogs, but I love them all really (not a big fan of birds tho, except howls and little birds such as robin) (PS: I do not count farm birds as birds, so yes I love chickens, peacocks, turkey, pigeons and all these !)

  • Botanical, I love plants as well, not only flowers but everything from trees to vegetables, favorite flowers are edelweiss and pansy

  • Calligraphy, I like looking at your beautiful writings, but I’m bad at it lol

  • Death, ok that sounds weird, but I’m interested in it’s representation through the years and cultures

  • English Setters, of course my favorite dog breed !

  • Fall is my favorite season, so anything related

  • Green and Blue (and everything in between) are my favorite colors, I also like purple and silver

  • History, true historical events or totally fictional tales, I love both !

  • Insects, especially butterflies, but I kinda like them all (in pictures and drawings ! I’m scared to death of real life centipedes)

  • Just postcards, my first snail mail love

  • Kamchatka (random but I needed a k and this place is so beautifully stunning)

  • Letter paper, latest stationery addiction, but I love a beautiful letter paper and it’s not that easy to find (especially with assorted envelopes)

  • Medical stuff, anatomy, human and animal, especially comparative anatomy

  • Nature, especially mountain and sea

  • Old things, whatever how old, from prehistoric to yesterday

  • Polaroids and analog photography

  • Questions ! Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything, I’m really open minded and will be glad to answer !

  • Russian things, I’ve been studying Russian for a while now and start understanding and being able to read easy sentences, I love all former Soviet countries as well and hope to go visit some days (I know it may sound weird due to current events, but I’ve had this interest ever since I was a child, no idea why)

  • Stickers, I’m addicted to stickers omg, this is a serious addiction problem, I also like washi tapes

  • Taxidermy and other bizarre things you could find in a Cabinet of curiosity

  • Tea, I love tea ! My favorites ’green and blue tea, but I drink black and white tea as well and love herbal infusions ! Nothing too artificial tho, and I have a irrational disgust for rooibos

  • Utopies, I wish the world was a safe space for everyone

  • Veggies, I’m mostly an herbivore, I only hunt mushrooms and always bring zucchinis and eggplants when I’m invited to a BBQ



let me know if you have any problem with my swaps, I will be glad to resent to you and will never rate anything other than 5 without discussing it first with the person. Please do the same.

Post service in France is SO SLOW even a snail would be more fast ! And we have so many strikes and protest all the time here (especially February / March / April / May 2023, …), let’s just be patient !

Thank you so much for reading all this ! See you soon in my mailbox ! Have a beautiful day !

Bonne journée !

Comment: Hi!!! So, I received another mail from you today on Friday the 12th of March, which is so interesting to receive something from you the day after I received almost nothing from you yesterday. The postmark date says "25635A-02 LA POSTE" and "16-03-24 . PR FRANCE." Anyway, thanks for the postcard. For some reason, I probably didn't think you were in WIYM (or maybe I did but forgot), and I probably kept thinking you have yet another piece of mail coming to me soon (which I think you have one coming to me maybe soon). And I probably kept thinking that I would receive this WIYM swap's postcard from the United States, so it was interesting it turns out to be you XD I look forward to your next piece of mail! XD ~Kiyasu (UPDATE: Whoops, I wrote "March" instead of "April." But on your postcard you wrote "11 MAR 2024" with the cloud and 8 degrees Celsius... so maybe that's part of what made me type "March.")

Comment: Thank you very much for all the postcards.
Comment: Well hello there Laure. aren't we just the partners lately, ha! 😀 But I love it though! TYSM for the book PC and your list answers for Books you haven't finished yet. Guess you do have quite list of them. I wish luck in getting them all read. 😀 I only read two at a time. Otherwise I drive myself bonkers with so many, Ha!

Comment: Hi Laure! Thank you for the great blue postcard and all the cute pens used and decorations on back! We just walked to the curb with our waste bins and checked the mailbox. This was the only mail in our box. Sending you a pm also. :)
Comment: Oh wow, turns out I didn't receive nothing from you for this swap! I kind of did wonder a bit if your mail got lost or not, so it's so interesting it did arrive today and I didn't receive nothing from you. I hope you enjoyed that week of nothing you were talking about for March, and thanks for the nice surprise! :D I think, you might have another mail coming to me for another swap... it's funny it feels like I keep on getting you as my sender for some swaps or something. Oh yeah, and the postmark detail of your envelope says "4-3" and "2024." Thanks for the mail day made possible because of your mail; if you hadn't sent this, today I would have actually received nothing in my mailbox today :( ~Kiyasu
Comment: Thank you for the postcard. Isn't it funny how two people see the same thing but don't see it the same way. I don't find it dull. And I love Peter Rabbit :)
Comment: Thank you so much for such a wonderful flower themed mail. Your mail made my day. 😍

Comment: Hello, Laure! This is such an appropriate postcard for this list, and I love it! XD I had to take philosophy for a whole year in uni, and I don't blame you at all for not being able to finish Descartes. >.> Thank you for such an adorable postcard, and have a wonderful day! <3

Comment: Thank you for the great card. I love the stickers you put on it this time.
Comment: Thank you for your card. It arrived today.
Comment: Thank you so much for your mail. I love the post-its, they brought such a smile to my face. My studying is really interesting. I'm not quite sure what area I will work in yet. I always thought it would be children I work with but the more I have learned about Dementia the more I think I could go down that route, eating and swallowing is really interesting too! Maybe a rural job rather than the city so I can do it all!

Comment: Wow, this arrived so fast!! Yes, I am familiar with the traditional English breakfast. I actually lived in England for two years!! Ha, ha, I remember seeing beans served with breakfast for the first time and being so confused. Thanks for all the fun stickers and doodles too. Such a fun pc to receive.
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful PCs and cute stickers. I agree that smaller ones are more fun on mail/PCs!

I am a purist when it comes to waffle toppings - just syrup. If I was to add any toppings, my top two choices are strawberries and cooked apples. My dad makes the BEST waffles and, as an adult, I still ask for him to make them.
