My name is Cecilia, but you can call me Cecil. I'm a housewife, teacher, mother of two adult daughters and matryoshka collector. I live with three lovely cats at home: Sugar, Ginger, and Pepper. They have their own account in Postcrossing ( TheKiddos ). In my spare time, I like to watch National Geographic Channel,that makes me "traveling" around the world.
Postcrossing gives me unlimited opportunities to explore the world. I like to search on google everything that are shown on the postcards and little pieces of stamps I receive. So It would be great if you send me an interesting postcard and put more stamps that I can learn something from:)
Anyway,I put huge interests in cultures, people, art, historical sites and beautiful landscapes.
I like surprise, so you can send any card that you think interesting. But if you have no idea what to send, these are the themes that I really like:
* The cards from my favorite wall
