About Ira...

Envelopes or anonymous letters are not postcards and look suspicious mail to me. Please, send only postcards, written & stamped. No envelopes for me!


My name is Ira. I'm an in-company English trainer, who love my country, interested in Slavic mythology, keen on gardening: spending much of my spare time cutting this, planting that, digging here, weeding there & growing lots of exquisite English roses in my garden here in Siberia (surprised?=) and gorgeous orchids as houseplants (however, I don't like cut flowers and flower postcards are not what I'm really excited to get), regularly take part in philatelic events in my city, use aromatherapy when cat therapy is unavailable but badly needed, truly devoted to my family, my gorgeous British bicolor cat who is actually Her Majesty The Queen=), take much care of my new cat, a black stray one, who adopted us quite unexpectedly when hid under my car so sick & starving on a freezing winter day a few years ago but so beautiful & energetic today.

All my family look through my postcrossing mail every evening. Believe it or not, my local post office whose work I greatly appreciate say they have fun sorting out my cards & often keep them on their tables (no reading=) to brighten their day till I come to check my PO Box. I've known them for many years & feel they're members of the big postcrossing family, too.

As for postcards I like them real, store-bought, stamped (no envelope) & handwritten. Thank you for avoiding tourist/city view/old/ad/greeting/folded/free/re-used/Soviet-time cards.

Expired: 33

My albums show the cards I'm really proud to have.
Many thanks to those who care & share!
