About Me

Hi there.

What shall I tell you about me?! I love postcards and handpicked stories. Surprise me with a little anecdote of 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: How would you describe your victory dance? What do you think of spinach? What comes into your mind when you think of (Heinz) ketchup?... 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, showgirls or pin ups, which make me smile.

What else?! If there is time I dive into books. How to describe my taste? Imagine Mandy Robotham meets Erich Kästner for a coffee and from time to time people like Aimie K. Runyan or Louise Fein join the conversation about the roaring 20s and WW2. Sometimes I just buy a book, because of the great cover. Another thing I enjoy is going to the theatre..you wont believe how much I enjoyed watching Cabaret lately. Favorite movies?! Breakfast at Tiffany's, It's a wonderful Life, Mary Poppins...a bit newer...Life of Walter Mitty, Amsterdam and Perfect Days. Oh and I love to dance and am always busy learning the latest tap dance choreo.

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 adverts from the 1920s to 1950s - vintage travel posters, maps, and aerograms - B&W - espresso with a dash of hot milk - Heinz ketchup & colourful curries - book or magazine covers - natural science charts - WWI & WWII military history - typography - fashion & design - Art Deco & Bauhaus (1920s-30s) - Space Age (1950s-60s) - woodlands - weird, vintage cartoons by Hanna-Barbera (The Jetsons, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, Yogi Bear), 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 & paper. Sorry, I dont want to sound complaining.

Comment: Yes, I agree with diagraphics. It's a different perspective of learning. Thank you for the nice stamps used.

Comment: Thanks for the card ❤️ I love the real winter with ton of snow and below zero. We’ve been so lucky now in Finland. We had snow already in the end of November and it’s been super cold. Last week it was -20°c the whole week 🎉

Comment: Thank you for the postcard. I don't remember my first flight because I wasn't even a year old. But I have made that same flight many many times throughout my life and it's always been good. Happy New Year!

Comment: I love the test pattern postcard! I remember those too, as well as the ones with the colored bars. One time I used colored washi tapes to make postcards like the colored bar ones, for a swap. I thought that was kind of fun! Thanks for the fun swap.

I just found and was admiring a summer -themed flipbook you made for a swap in August 2020. It's so lovely and I wanted to tell you that it's still bringing me joy two years later. I hope you're having an amazing vacation!

Thank you Joana for the lovely surprise in the mail that I received today. What delightful goodies inside and the birthday wishes were lovely. I had a great day and my hubby made sure it was special and I got myself a record player and currently listening to Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Sprit. xx

Hi Joana. I see you've been playing PC Roulette like crazy! Thanks so much for the lovely John Ryan illustration card. And how nice to discover a new museum! I hope you enjoy fall as much as summer. Best wishes, David

Happy Birthday!

Gatzcat on Jul 17, 2018:

Thank you! I absolutely love the postcard you sent. I even do like the flies. Never would I say this, but they're cute on their. But I don't think flies are cute in real life.

I guess I really am a winner. I got two extra from the PC Roulette Comeback July 2018 swap.

Thanks again!!
