About Carla...

Hello everybody,

I always loved and still love sending and receiving mail in the 'old fashioned' way. Although I don't collect stamps, I like unusual stamps, art stamps and Postcrossing stamps on cards - and the date of writing.

My avatar is an Art Nouveau lamp designed by Raoul Larche.

Short version:

I like reading, books, women, dancing and art. My fave colour is Blue and I like black&white fotos and little (singing) birds.
I like surprises - but please: no washi tape/ no stickers on text, no animals (except little birds), no Christmas (except Inge Löök) and no Easter cards. My favorites are examples for what I like - and already have received.
I like Heavy Rock and Metal and I am fan of Iron Maiden since the 80s. I'd like to receive the PHQ cards (received: Vancouver2010, Birmingham, Helsinki 2018)
And I like cards by publisher Paper Moon.

If you want to see your card in your wall, please upload it yourself.

Long version:
