About Me

Hello! I am a wife and mother of two adult children, both are married. Expecting our first grandchild in June 2022. Since 2015 I have been retired and can look back on a rich professional life. 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. My favorites include: Map cards, city views (day and night), typical houses of your country, shop windows, bookstores, libraries, lighthouses, water mills, snow and snowmen, rain, hats, umbrellas, books and mailboxes. I love Snoopy, Pettersson and Findus, Atelier Nouvelles Images, The New Yorker, paintings by the ancient Dutch masters, Edward Hopper, Timothy Easton and others .....

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

  • Seasonal cards, especially for Christmas (postcards and folded cards). All 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: teal, turquoise and orange, for Christmas red and green or iceblue, but I'm fine with every other color, too.

Not for Me

Please avoid sending me food and drink items. Thank you!

Comment: thanks - took awhile to get to me, but I don't rate for that being international. Even in the US mail is extremely slow.

Comment: Ooohh, you made me so happy with your Berlin envelope which arrived yesterday. I love the sculpture with the Quadriga bears. I had to search a lot to find them. The glass building on the background... I was confused. Last time I visited the city was October 2016. I love to come back as soon as possible! And thanks for my birthday wishes. So thoughtful!
