My live-credo is simple live, simple pleasure. I'm a bibliophile and really like classical music. My hobbies are writing, photography (I have a cool vintage photo-camera) and of course traveling, as my job is very closely related to trips.
I'm a big fan of old movies, movies of 50's and 60's years and I love to reread The Wizard of Oz. If you have cards from The Wizard of Oz (not movies, but book's characters by great illustrator W.W.Denslow), I would really love to receive them.
Unfortunatly I'm still receiving pretty much postcards with "Hello! Happy postcrossing!". This's so sad and boring, isn't it?) Here're some pieces of ideas what postcard (or letter, letter is much more interesting!) can contain:
o Express what daily life is like where you’re sending the card from by describing what you did today, your routine, etc.
o What was the last thing you cooked or ate?
o Recount a childhood memory, or something you've learned from your grandparents.
o What makes you happy? If it makes you smile, there's a good chance others will like to hear about it.
o Did you ever travel to the place where your card is going? Recall your best memory of that place.
o What's the weather like as you are writing your postcard? Draw the weather forecast in detail!
o Share an interesting fact that you've learned, and which most people are not aware of.
o Got an unusual hobby or collection? Do tell!
o Did anything important happen in your country lately? Share an interesting news bit!
o Tell the recipient about your favourite book, movie or band!
o Draw a picture of your surroundings, or your favourite object in that room!
o What are the local festivals or traditions from your area?
o If you're a student, what are you studying? What was the last thing you learned in school?
And I'll be so happy to receive a postcard from you. Go ahead, yeahh!
If you want to send me "thank you card", please, don't ask me can or not, just send it. But don't forget to mark the back side as "thank you card" (and your nickname! I should know who loves my postcard, haha) and it will be the best unexpected gift for the day.
I appreciate the beautiful and interesting stamps, and hand-made cards if they are made with some sense of taste and neatness. It doesn't concern self-printed cards and magazine cuts glued on the cardboard, sorry. Also, don't send me advertising cards and cards a la Anne Geddes, please-please-please.
Following themes are especially nice:
- For finnish postcrossers: Inge Löök - oh! I love these cards! Also I love nature views by Hannu Hautala and totally love illustrations by Sven Nordqvist.
- For japanese postcrossers: some postcards with traditional japanese archery, named "kyudo". But any postcard from your amazing country is very welcome.
- Anything relates to badminton.
- Postcards from The Wizard of Oz (illustrations made by W.W.Denslow).
