About Me

I am a wife and mother of two adult children. Since 2015 I have been retired. I love the sea, especially the rough charm of the North Sea.

Hobbies and Interests

  • Photography: Architecture, landscapes, lightmoods, reflections and close-ups belong to my favorite photo subjects.

  • Books: Especially murder mystery and crime novels. Favorite authors among others: Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Mary Higgins Clark, Donna Leon, Charlotte Link.

  • Film/TV: Midsomer Murders/Inspector Barnaby, Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Father Brown, Sherlock Holmes (the old series), Death in Paradise.

  • Postcards, all kinds. Favorites include: Map cards, typical houses of your country, shop windows, bookstores, libraries, lighthouses, wind / water mills, snow and snowmen, rain, umbrellas, mailboxes. I love Snoopy, Pettersson and Findus, Atelier Nouvelles Images, The New Yorker ..... and surprises!

    Please no old/used vintage postcards, and also no postcards from the German Harenberg calendars. They are beautiful, but I've got lots of them. Thank you!

  • Seasonal cards, especially for Christmas (postcards and folded cards). All kinds of Christmas themes are welcome. A Christmas stamp on the card or envelope would be great, too.

  • Halloween cards (postcards and folded cards) and spooky films on Halloween.

  • Mail art, handmade envelopes, handwritten letters.

  • Airmail envelopes and airmail labels.

  • Stamps. It would be very nice if you could put stamps on your envelope or postcard instead of postage labels, if possible.

  • ATCs. I discovered them here on Swap-bot.

  • Quotes / words of wisdom.

Some Favorites

  • Seasons: autumn and winter, Christmas time with its joyful spirit

  • Flowers: tulips and red poppies

  • Colors: blue, teal, turquoise and orange, for Christmas red and green or iceblue, but I'm fine with every other color, too.

Thank you for the Two Postcards in an Envelope tag. I love the cards & the bits of history you wrote. Hope you're getting some sunshine!

Hi, a huge thank you for your beautiful envelope filled with beautiful goodies! I loved the postcards, card, bookmarks and washi tape. I plan on using the ephemera in my art journal. I appreciate the tickets & mini cards. I was in Germany so long ago (the year before the wall came down) so I never had the opportunity to go to Berlin. ♥️♥️♥️
