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.
If you don't like to read much here is the short version:
I like art and books and women and dancing. My favorites are examples for what I like - and already have received.
I like surprises - but please: no stickers, no washi tape on card, no animals, no Christmas (except Inge Löök cards) and no Easter cards.
Czech postcrossers: I love Mucha's Slav Epic
Finnish postcrossers: I love Inge Löök and Rudolf Koivu
Tell me what I see on the card, name of the artist, city name and so on. If there is a printed text on the front or back of the card, please translate it into English or German.
Please, write the "Hello" and the greeting formula at the end in your native language or dialect.
If you want to see your card in your wall, please upload it yourself.
