Hi! When I'm home I live right in the heart of Vancouver with all the hustle and bustle but very close to a salt water inlet. I'm retired, and a widow.
My Mum is English (I was born there) and is now 94 years old and my best friend. My Dad was Finnish from Karelia; I'm sorry to say I don't speak any Finnish.
As well as lots of travel, some of my favourite pastimes are:
drinking too many cups of tea
reading mysteries, preferably ones set in other countries, Nordic and English are favourites
smiling at dogs, they usually wag and 'smile' back
I do smile at people, too ;-)
visiting botanical gardens, galleries, and museums
watching wild birds
taking long walks on our seawall
PLEASE, NO Postix, Touchnote, or any other computer or third party generated cards.
As a favour, I'd appreciate it if you could save your tourist cards of modern cities and buildings for people who collect them. But if that's all that's available to you, of course I'll be very happy to receive them.
Please use a pen with dark ink, I've had some recently that are very difficult to read and I hate to miss any of your message.
I love cute illustrations and random surprise cards! If you'd like suggestions, in no particular order, the items listed below are just a few of the things I enjoy.
PHQ cards - any subject
fantasy, mythology, folk tales, fairytales
Inkognito - I really enjoy Gerhard Gluck's card
cards with lots of pink or other warm colours
meteors, planets, space, the moon
If you could...write a message. A card with a blank back seems very impersonal. Any little comment about yourself, your day, your likes or dislikes is welcome. If you're stuck how about sharing some of your favourite things? Foods, colours, animals, anything!
Thank you very much for reading my profile. I feel so lucky to have found Postcrossing!
