Hello friends. I’m Natalya from Minsk. I worked at the movie production company as a film crew mаnager but now I’m retired. 2 of my 3 adult children work in the movies as well. I became a widow 5 years ago, my husband was a well known director of photography in the Russian film industry. All my life is connected with cinema and I still love it. 3 of my most favorite movies are: «Bohemian Rhapsody» (I watched it 10 times, always with tears), I also like «2046» of Wong Kar Wai (beautiful music and visuals!) and «Anna Karenina» of Joe Wright. My other hobbies are reading, cross stitching, visiting exhibitions and theaters, especially opera and ballet.
⠀I collect stamps, notes and coins, beverage coasters and bookmarks.
⠀I’m a big tea lover and I always wonder how many sorts of tea exist in the world, I save new tea bags and this is my hobby as well.
⠀Funny thing is, now I like reading your letters and cards even more than when I started 8 years ago! Paradox!
⠀Here is a short video about my beautiful country: https://youtu.be/hHy_uUnvkho
⠀My wish list below is not a requirement, just to give you some ideas:
🔹Postcrossing meet up cards! I like to participate in such meetings;
🔹Rock, pop groups and singers;
🔹British Royal family;
🔹Marylin Monroe, Greta Garbo, Vivien Leigh, Romy Schneider, French actors - I like French cinema because I studied French culture in the university.
🔹3D, holographic or special material cards: wooden, metal, cork. So different! If possible, in envelope, and please add your address – I always send 2 beautiful thank-you cards in reply;
🔹Art, humor, KEEP CALM;
🔹Flowers, dolls, birds;
🔹Famous people, presidents, shaped cards;
🔹From the USA - Route 66,
🔹Из России - матрёшки, «Русские красавицы»,сов. пропаганда, штампы и спецгашения;
⠀But please, no self printed and multi view cards. Вeautiful stamps and stickers are welcome, I save interesting envelopes as well.
⠀I don't register newspaper clippings, thin printed papers instead of cards ant I don’t register not received ones.
⠀Thank you very much for all your kind letters. This project helped me through a tough period of my life.
Special thanks to Chinese users: you always use a lot of beautiful stamps.
