Can't take the credit for this one, Margaret Bar_bar was talking about it just before we turned the page on Postcards #9.

Well guess I will start it out....I like
l..maps ..trying to get one from each state, country, wherever...
2..pictures of the areas where they are sent from...city, county, state...people..lighthouses, etc..
3..country scenes ...buildings, fields, gardens..
4..animals native to the areas...
and just about anything else related to the areas..anything that I can learn from..
5..old time scenes..old buildings, modes of transportation...

I am not fond of silly cards..or the wish you were here ones that really don't show the area ....that don't tell me anythng about the area..

I am really not that hard to please..

I am also easy to please....my favorites include:

any kind of scenery--beaches, mountains, lighthouses, famous buildings, etc.

maps

local recipes

vintage-look cards

My kids enjoy animals & transportation.

I'm with Margaret on what I don't like so much--things that really don't tell about the area.

I like any kind of scenery, photos of area, country sights, mts. city sights etc

city skylines

maps (want to get one from every state)

vintage

I like the name of the state on the pc, and the pc written on and postmarked. However if you would be sending more than one, they could be written on and put into an envelope.

I don't like silly pc's, hotel pc's, or advertisment pc's.

I like any type of scenery, water scenes, mountains, farms, animals, historic buildings, maps of states or countries, anything specific about the area, and vintage. I'm also trying to get a map pc of each state.

I don't care for ad, hotel or silly ones either.

Well I like most everything except ads.
Maps of state, animals, scenery, buildings historic sites and of course lighthouses anything pertaining to the state, city or country anything tranporation old and new.

I ain't fussing on much.
