About Me

A quick personal note about ratings: I rate immediately (the day I receive) for ALL of my swaps. If you haven’t received a rating from me, it is because I haven't received the swap yet. No exceptions. It isn’t fun to chase down partners trying to find out if they received my swap so I wanted to put this right up front! I will not sign up for a swap if I know I am going to be busy or out of town during the time it’s due to arrive. The courtesy of acknowledgment is that important to me! ❤️**************************************************

I come from a long line of old-fashioned letter writers and to this day, I still treasure the letters I received, all the way back to my great-grandparents, now long gone!

I always appreciate the effort and creativity spent by those who send, and I love to be surprised! It does seem the majority of senders prefer a list to work from so, I kindly oblige:

These days I tend to focus on postcard swaps …


• any of the Starry Night themes

• cows, pigs, fox, ladybugs, rabbits, bumblebee

• nurses or teachers, anything for/about

• baseball, any, including your own regional/state stadiums/teams, softball

• camellia, sunflower, daffodil, magnolia, Peace Rose, iris

• any birthday or holiday themes

• ice cream, doughnuts or cupcakes

• lighthouses, bridges or flamingos, sparrows, cardinals

• mermaids (adult-ish, not Disney)

• Snoopy or Peanuts

• patriotic, military, anything for veterans

• billiards or coin-op games

• wine or champagne

• USPS commemorative stamp postcards

• Frida Kahlo, Van Gogh, Chihuly, Ansel Adams, Frank Lloyd Wright

• Smiley face 🙂 themes, hearts, or general cheerfulness

• I send postcards to many senior citizens who don’t have family so anything neutral, colorful, and/or cheery that I can use to share joy with them would be a perfect choice! (cats, cute kittens or puppies, pretty birds or butterflies or flowers also good choices for them) ❤️⬇️

FOR NAKED, STAMPED and WRITTEN to me personally:

• I love any postcard you choose that has a great note from you written on it ..

• I love any postcard which depicts something special about your own locale - especially if you’re sharing tidbits or a factoid about it with me; or any architecture or historical references- touristy is fine

• I also personally love anything remotely having to do with these random non-touristy themes:

• dolphins, seashells, beach, Adirondack chairs

• golf or baseball

• cardinals (the bird or the baseball team)

• owls or a phoenix

• fancy cocktails, peaches or other pretty fruit

• old-fashioned santas or pierrot moon/rose scenes

• mailboxes or any postal theme

• any holidays or special occasion

• my favorite flowers: iris, hyacinth, hydrangea or any topiaries

• State Bird series

• any and all of the postcard series (LouPaper, WanderonWords, Max and Oscar, Writerie or similar)

• the Lantern Press series from your local Cracker Barrel

• special events such as Meetups or Postcrossing themes

• unique shapes or any special or limited design series

• Miscellaneous locale: Great Britain, British or Irish themes, St. Louis, anything from or about Georgia, South Carolina

Gracious Thanks

I really do sincerely thank you for the thought you’re putting into a swap by even taking the time to read my profile … it is so appreciated! And thank you in advance for your kindness!

Comment: Hello! Thanks for the awesome postcard--mmmm, peppers! As I've gotten older, my tolerance for heat has gone down, but I still love it! -k
Response: Glad you like the postcard and yep - I hear ya! Chile peppers are generally a love/hate thing! Thanks for the rating!
Comment: Thank you for the great selection of swap cards in your colorful handpainted envie. My favorites are the kissing flower couple & the wonderful pensive portrait of the Khmer girl. I also have postage stamp envy! Love those Shel Silverstein stamps. Last month I tried 3 different local Post offices, but none of them had them. So I went to the USPS website only to find that they were no longer available. Boo hoo! I knew Shel & wish he were still with us.
Response: So glad to read that you liked the choices - your profile made it easy! Thanks for the rating and have a great week!
