About Me

I am Nolleke, woman (1951) married since 1980, 2 grown-up daughters and 2 sons in law, 4 grandchildren. Husband will retire in October 2020. I'm retired since 2017.

In my country, the Netherlands, mailboxes are emptied only 5 days a week, not on Saterdays and Sundays. The post is delivered 5 days a week, not on Sundays and Mondays.

MY COUNTRY: Is it Holland or The Netherlands? Look here: Holland vs the Netherlands - YouTube www.youtube.com/watch?v=eE_IUPInEuc

I am interested in everything that has to do with (the history of) textiles. I am addicted to Postcrossing (Nolleke2010) I collect stamps with a topic: Textile.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE. THANK YOU.

I always leave feedback the day I get your mail, please do the same !

I am always disappointed when people are too late with sending their stuff.

Please make sure you put the name of the swap on your mail. I usually have several swaps going on and I need to be able to find you to rate you. Thanks!

Favorite Books

I love to read, mostly non fiction, history, biography. And books about textiles. Ofcourse I read books in my own language, Dutch. But I also read lots of books in english. That is to practice my english but also because english books are much cheaper in my country.

Favorite Movies

Working girl, When Harry met Sally, Four weddings and a funeral, Preparez vos mouchoirs, Love actually. Les entouchables.

Favorite Crafts

Crafts that have to do with textile: spinning, weaving, lace making, embroidery, sewing, crocheting, knitting, etc. But I don't do those things myself. I have done them all. Nowadays I am only interested in: - how is it done, - history of the craft, - textile mills, - textile art, - textile in museum or exhabition.

Likes / Favorites

POSTCARDS.

I collect POSTCARDS with:

Most of all: anything that has to do with textile, like fibre, yarn, spinning, weaving, lace making, lace, silk, wool, cotton, linen, knitting croaching, quilts, tapestries, textile mills, textile industry, etc. If you can find postcards with this topic, you make my day.

And also:

women (painted or photo).

working women

someone reading

fans, women with fan

folklore/national dress

shops and markets

shoes

cows

sheep

rooster, chicken, hen

view/multiview with name of the city on the front

STAMPS.

I collect ( postage) STAMPS with a topic. My topic is TEXTILE.

So if you find stamps with anything that has to do with textile, like:

fibre

yarn

spinning

weaving

lace making

lace

silk, wool, cotton, linen

knitting

croaching

quilts

tapestries

textile mills

textile industry, etc.

Then I am very interested.

MUSEUMS I love to visit museums and exhabitions. About paintings, sculpture and textile (tapestry, lace, quilts)

WALKING I walk at least 3 times a week, at least an hour.

TRAVEL Most of all I love citytrips. Besides New York, Paramaribo and Marrakech, I have seen most big cities in Europe: Amsterdam, Brussels, Antwerp, Luxembourg, Paris, Nancy, Barcelona, Valencia, Malaga, Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, London, Edinburgh, Oslo, Gotenborg, Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz, Poznan, Prague, Brno, Ostrawa, Vienna, Geneva, Lausanne, Milan, Rome, Florence, Venice, Sienna, Pisa, Berlin, Cologne, Leipzig, Erfurt, Weimar, Darmstadt, Dresden etc.

SWAP BOT And ofcourse I like to do swap bot.

Favorite animal

My favorite animal is a SHEEP. Because I am interested in textile, I am interested in the materials: wool, cotton, silk etc. The wool comes from a sheep. So that is the link. I collect sheep since 1994. I collect sheep on postage stamps. I collect sheep on postcards. I collect little sheep made of stone, porcelain, wood, glass, clay etc. I have over 500 of them. I always try to find and buy one when I am on vacation/holidays. So I do have sheep of many countries in Europe but also from Africa and South America. Last sheep till now: a sheep from Latvia. My husband was there for a conference and surprised me.

What surprises me

More than once, when I look at a profile, I read: Sorry, I'm so busy, but now I will rate soon etc.. At the same time I see that same person is involved in more than 10 swaps. That surprises me. When I am busy, I participate just in a few swaps, or I take a total break, until I have time again. When you are doing swaps, you have responsibilities. Please keep that in mind. Thank you.

Dislike

Multi view postcards.

Cats on postcards.

Thank you so much for returning my stamp bag. There were lots of wonderful stamps in it! Yes, some people have some strange ideas about what is a 'quality' stamp!! Thank you for the postcard too :)
