About Vanamo...

One day I got crazy. I went to the postcards wall and started to choose favorites and more favorites and even more favorites... It didn't stop. Now I have thousands of favorites. You don't have to go through them. I like them but many other cards too.

I am 50 years old biologist. I am retired because of mental issues though. I like handicrafts, collecting things, flea markets, reading and I sing in a church choir. I like bird watching and collecting plants. I am also trying to learn first aid in Finnish Red Cross. My weirdest hobby is to be a volunteer patient for the fire department and The Emergency Services Academy Finland in my hometown. Patients are needed for education of fire fighters.

I live in town but for real I am rustic. It's nice to go to the forest, be all alone and listen to birds and see the nature. I was born on a very small farm where the nature was always around me.

You can send me any card you want. Free, ad, old, handmade and used cards are well come. Send me that ugly card nobody wants. Or send me a card that makes you happy. Tell me why it makes you feel that way.

Stamps related to nature or sea are a great surprise.

If you want to send me something special you can also choose from the text beneath.

PS. I AM interested in swapping cards but used cards only :-)

26.2.2021 MY PROJECT
I want to make little "books" for my two brothers' children. These are some subjects:

1) roosters and "it's all pink" for a teenage girl. She likes cooking and baking so also cards with recipes.
2) sheep, skulls and cards with (almost) only yellow for another teenager (a girl)
3) sea horses and first responders for the third teenage girl
4) gerbils, unusual pets
5) letters A, E, I, J, L, M, N, O, R, S, U, V
6) fairies for teenagers, Flower Fairies, dragons
7) a scenery with a cat or something typical of your country and there is a cat in the picture too (= travel the world with cats). Other pets esp. horses are okay too.
8) fire trucks, fire houses, fire fighters for a 4-year old boy
9) tractors for men, men bicycling
10) bath ducks for 1-year old girl
