About A_V...

Hello fellow PostCrossers!

This project is very exciting indeed because I do love postcards and stamps. :)

My interests include for example arts in various forms, photography (especially B&W), poetry and all literature, movies, music, cooking and baking, coffee and tea etc.

I enjoy travelling and getting to know new places, cultures, languages and people. Exploring the world is my passion! I have a permanent address in USA and Finland (so your card will find me in both countries).

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!


♥ Nice stamps are always welcome! I would love the cards to be mailed with beautiful real stamps (not the white stickers from post office). This makes me grateful.

♥ Hopefully I don't sound too demanding, but those "traditional" tourist postcards aren't exactly to my liking... :( If at all possible, please try to choose something else than city views, buildings and monuments etc. I would really appreciate that, because other subjects will much more likely put a smile on my face! Thank you so much for understanding. :)

♥ In case you like to find out more about my preferences, feel free to take a look at the "favourites" section on my postcard wall! Any kind of card in the mailbox is always a great pleasure though. Just send something that you think might make my day...

♥ If you want to make me especially happy, use an envelope and send me a photo and/or an interesting article and/or picture from a newspaper or a magazine along with your postcard! That would be so awesome and I will be very thankful for your time and effort.

♥ Actually using an envelope is a great idea anyway, because the cards are all too often damaged in the mail...

♥ Please do not publish the text side of my sent postcard anywhere. I'd like to share it just with you, not with everybody surfing the web. Thanks! Adding the picture to the postcard wall is fine of course. :)

Suomalaiset maisemat yms. ovat toki lähellä sydäntäni, mutta kotimaasta toivoisin saavani muunlaista postia. Erityisen mieluisia olisivat mm. yllä mainitsemani teemat sekä seuraavien taiteilijoiden kortit:

• Hugo Simberg
• Akseli Gallén-Kallela
• Rudolf Koivu
• Martta Wendelin
• Venny Soldan-Brofeldt
• Mauri Kunnas
