About Katariina...

I'm interested in different cultures, history and the Natives all over the world.
I enjoy lot of books, art and music and walking under the star-studded sky or in woods, travelling, ice-hole swimming, pondering, book binding, baking and cooking.

I do not like multiview tourist card! If possible, please, send me cards in the standard format - 10 x 15 cm. Some of my favorite postcard subjects, no in particular order:

* books, reading people
* vintage/retro images, black and white photos
* fantasy (with unicorns, elves, faeries, goddesses, witches)
* Moomins
* Zdenek Miler's Krtek
* matryoshka doll,"Матрешка" cards from Russia
* art
* cards of Atelier Nouvelle Images
* old Propaganda Posters
* Anne Taintor, Anna Hollerer, Séverine Pineaux, Luis Royo, Rebecca Dautremer
* children's book illustration
* Native People
* children and old people of the world
* historical places,ancient, old maps
* UNESCO World Heritage (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list)
* the recipe of the traditional food in your country
* space, volcanos, storm/lightning
* cats,lions, panthers,leopards,jaguars, tigers, painters, wildcats
* B. Kliban´s cats, Tukituk cats (from Russia), cats by Irina Zenyuk
* bears, polar bears
* local nature (single view, please NO multiview cards )
* alphabet cards in any language, here´s an example in English http://www.igglywig.com/imglib/Flash-Card-Poster-A1.jpg

If you don't have any of the above don't worry.You can always cut a piece of cardboard food package sold in your home country (cookies, fried meals, dry fruit, etc.) in about postcard size, use the other side of the cardboard for stamps, address and add a few words what the product is about, translation of the text etc. I am happy :) with whatever you choose to send.

If you want, please tell me something about you; what your everyday life is like, the things that make you happy, what has happened to you recently or short description of things that are totally typical for your country!

If you have a favorite book, please tell me. Thank you to those who have recommended books to me. I've read many wonderful books I may not have known without you.

I prefer my postcards written on. Don't forget to include the postcard ID and the date you sent the card, and if possible, please use a pretty or interesting stamp(s) :)! Please, I would prefer not to receive ad cards and tourist multi view cards. Please do not send postcards depicting another country other than your own.

Suomesta myös Inge Löökin mummelit, Stenvallin ankat, Hannu Hautalan, Rudolf Koivun, Martta Wendelin, Kimmo Pälikön ja Raija Nokkalan kortit ovat tervetulleita.Kiitos!
