I'm Vera from Saint- Petersburg.
I like to travel and learn something new about people in other countries, about their habits and customs. But most of all I love reading, especially fairy tales, legends, tales. And I need to say that I'm working in a little bookshop :)
At University I studied history of art and my favorite themes were about book illustration, posters and graphic at whole. Most of all I love graphic of the end of XIX century.
I love spend free-time with knitting on my favorite sofa or travelling and visit intresting places :)
My recieved cards are here (I have another one profile): https://picasaweb.google.com/110235885732372710151
Any card is welcome but here are some hints as to my interests:

Inspiration on what to write:
* about country or city/cities your want to visit,
* draw any tree or leaf,
* about your favourite season
P.S. I won't add received cards into my favourites, because participation in robins and tags. BUT you'll definitely know if I like your card :o)
But honestly, this is really just an inspiration. :o)
Happy postcrossing ! :о)
