About Marina...

I am an eco-minded mother of 2 daugthers that like checking our mailbox very much. They are going to the Waldorf school. If you have any experience with the Waldorf, please share with us, we'd love to hear your stories.

I like reading, photography, hand-made crafts, cooking, growing things, foraging, organic lifestyle, camping, hiking, canoeing, and nature in all forms.

I'd like to receive postcards that would also be interesting (and appropriate) to my kids:
-#1 right now - Fairies + Daniela Drescher, Elsa Beskow, Gerda Muller, Lena Anderson, Margaret Tarrant (non-religious please), any other Waldorf education inspired images
#2 Gnomes or other by Lennart Helge !!!
#3 - Norwegian trolls by Rolf Lidberg
#4 - -Elements of Russian culture- art, costumes, food, samovars, matryoshkas, Russian beauty series/ Русские культурные элементы - костюмы, еда, картины русских художников, декоративно-прикладное искусство, серия Русские Красавицы
and also:
-your local animals, birds and plants
-mystical creatures of folklore
-Tomte/brownie, Vladimir Arzhevitin cards
-cultural traditions, national costumes, crafts and celebrations
-Character's from children's books (but not from the North American cartoons, no Disney please)
-people doing handiwork
-kids playing traditional games, performing chores
-art from your country
-Old Ladies by Inge Löök
-nature landscapes
-UNESCO sights
-national symbols
-Phases of the moon, constellations
-открытки издательства "Речь"
-Science cards: botany, astronomy, geology
-фауна Беларусi/fauna of Belarus
-cards reflecting of the time gone by

My kids aren't usually excited about the typical town views and buildings. Also we find it's a bit hard to see things on multiview cards. But this is just a suggestion of course!
Just don't send a blank card, write a few words, or better yet, write a long letter! If you don't know what to write - write about customs and/or traditions of your family, or suggest a good book (adult or children). We also enjoy interesting stamps. If you are sending in the envelope and have either some stickers to spare, or flower or veggie seeds (only from North America) we'd appreciate them! Thank you very much!
If you are a veteran post-crosser, please share how you store your cards or what do you do with them. In favorites, there are only cards that we don't have yet, but would like to have. If you could scan the card before mailing it, I'd greatly appreciate it! Here is a small part of our collection, check it out as well as our received cards to prevent doubles.
Looking forward to your card!
