Pirjo is 29 years old and lives in the lovely city of Tallinn, capital of Estonia. She got hooked on Postcrossing when her baby was born and now, she collects stamps and postcards of her favorite farm animal (cows), and chats with other Postcrossers on a daily basis.
- How did you come across Postcrossing? What got you hooked?
In the end of 2006 I read in a newspaper a small text about Postcrossing. I like to collect everything so I was right away very interested about it. I registrated myself and took one address, but I must sadly say I didn’t send this postcard, I didn’t have much time then.
In April 2007 my son was born and I stayed at home and rediscovered Postcrossing and started to send postcards out and I loved it. Soon I went to Postcrossing Forum where I met a lot of great postcrossers and started to swap and tagging :) That was lots of fun! And I must say that I made some great friends with whom I talk everyday at MSN messenger and by e-mail.
- Do you have any other interesting hobbies?
During Summer I go rollerskating everyday and I love it.
- Show us your mailbox, your mailman/mailwoman, your postoffice or the place where you post or keep your postcards!
My postoffice and where I keep my cards.
- Show and tell us about your favorite received postcard to date, and what makes it special.
That’s a very hard question :) My all time favorite postcards are with cows and here is my collection.
When I was 7 years old my first working place was at a farm. My grandmother had a very big farm, I was herdsman and had to wash cows. Before, when I was 2 years old, all my lunch naps where at the farm :). So, I’ve been around cows a lot :).
