What shall I tell you about me?! I love postcards and handpicked stories. Surprise me with a little anecdote of the everyday life. Combined with a picture on the back and a stunning stamp up in the right corner. Sounds perfect to me!
No anecdote?! Well here are some ideas: What‘s the craziest thing you‘ve done for love? What are your favorite shoes? How would you describe your victory dance? What would the first line of your biography/autobiography be?... Any questions? Ask me.
By the way I love everything from before the 1960s. I am always on the hunt for vintage curiosities like snapshots of everyday life, newspaper comic strips, popular science charts, as well as fashion magazines with stunning adverts, matchbox labels or cigarette cards and stamps. Oh and I am fan of gentlemen in suits, cocktails and showgirls or pin ups, which make me smile.
Whatelse?! If there is time I dive into books. How to describe my taste? Imagine Iona Grey meets Erich Kästner for a coffee and from time to time people like Christopher Isherwood or Naomi Wood joining the conversation about the roaring 20s and WW2. Sometimes I just buy a book, because of the great cover. Oh and I have a weak spot for magazines. I definitely cant leave the newsagent without buying the latest issue of Monocle, Harper’s Bazaar and Frankie.
Another thing I really enjoy is going to the cinema and theatre. Due to ol'rona it is a bit ago. The last movie I have seen was Little Women...Favorite movies?! Breakfast at Tiffany's, It's a wonderful Life, Mary Poppins...a bit newer...Life of Walter Mitty, LaLa Land and Little Women.
Well, I hope I could give you a foggy hint about myself. I am looking forward to hearing from you and even more to getting to know you. Smiles, Joana
PS.: Still unsure what to send? Well here are some more hints: washi tape - vintage ephemera - old movie poster or adverts from the 1920s to 1950s - movie stars esp. Lauren Bacall, Rock Hudson, Cary Grant or James Stewart - in general gentlemen in suits & cocktails - sparkling wine & French Martini - book or magazine covers - maps & natural science charts - WWI & WWII military history - vintage travel poster - fashion & design - Art Deco & Bauhaus - Ballet, hot Charleston, Burlesque or Showgirls - weird, odd or risque humor - Pin Up & naughty postcards that make the postman blush - surprises.
P.P.S.: At this point I should admit a few DISLIKES: touristic postcards or Zazzle & brownish faked retro postcards please not for me. I am not interested in Disney, Hello Kitty, Zentagle or Color-In, creepy dolls, cute illustrations, religious or spooky themes. Oh and I don't need scrapbooking & craft supplies. Sorry, I dont want to sound complaining.
