About Sirpa...


That's me, a middleaged woman living in Hämeenlinna in the southern part of Finland. The town is beautiful with a castle and plenty of parks and lakes. The castle ("linna") of Häme was founded at the late 13th century.

My hobbies are various including gardening, reading, traveling, history, handicrafts, genealogy etc.

My favourite topics are (in no special order)
- buildings and places, views of nature, countryside, town or city, especially when the time of day or the season is visible
- working people
- folklore and handicraft
- vintage b/w
- Moomins
- the UNESCO sites are always great!
- lynx
- Season´s Greetings - but just in the season

One very special wish: I´d love to get cards showing St. Georg fighting with the dragon!

But don´t worry, all nice cards are very welcome ; )

Have a happy day!

I received the card with ID RU-4383949 but it was overaged and couldn't be registered anymore, what a pity... Spasiba...
