About Milja...

I am an artisan weaver from Finland.

We live in Finland at Lemi country side. Our house is old, built 1929. From our yard I can see old windmill (from 1853), beautiful fields surronds us. I love to live in country, although sometimes at winter it is challenging. Like now, january 2016 we have really freezing here: -30 degrees Celsius.

It is really nice to have postcards from all over the world.
Any card will make me and my postbox happy :-)

If you need inspiration what kind of card you will send me, I especially like:
- USA states map would be great!
- colourful postcards
- art of Leonid Afremov and similar
- Victoria Kirdiy :-)
- angels
- fantasy characters
- handicraft subjects; knitting, weaving, yarns, fabrics, beautful textiles etc.
- vintage, vintage commercials
- vintage style cards of big cities
- dresses, old costumes, evening dresses, corsets, gloves, hats, fancy shoes, accessories, piece of jewellery etc...
- colourful fruits and vegetables, colourful spices, cakes and macarones :-)
- artist's stuff: paint, brushes...
- beautiful bridges
- Las Vegas, Los Angeles, California, USA generally
- Europe's (big) cities, I prefer single views, night, rain, beautiful scenery...
- monuments of the world, for example Tower Bridge, pyramids of Giza, Stonehenge etc...

In my favourites are cards I already have, but there you can see tips what kind of cards I like.

Please do not send me stuffed animals or bullfighting or that kind of stuff. Thank you.

I wish sunshine and happiness for your day!

P.S. Me and my 10-year old daughter are collecting tea bag covers, those small paper bags where tea bag is packed. If you like you can send us bag cover/covers from your country. Thank you! If you collect tea bags all over the world, I could then send you some from Finland for exhange :-)
