I'm 60+ years old and live in south-west Sweden. I don't travel much now, but enjoy expanding my views of the world through postcrossing.
In this context I prefer cards without envelopes. I appreciate nice stamps, but do not collect stamps separately.
At the top of my wishlist are fairytale/fantasy or children's books illustrations, or other artwork - preferably from your own country/culture. I'm also interested in national costumes, castles and other buildings of historical interest, and landscapes typical of your country. Other themes I like are clocks (time), books, letters and writing materials (and also people reading or writing). And anything to do with tea!
I love fantasy worlds like Alice in Wonderland, Narnia, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter; and mythical creatures like dragons and unicorns. I also have a fondness for owls and colourful butterflies.
From Finland I welcome Moomintrolls and Inge Löök's old ladies.
I also like for example the Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker, and illustrations from Vogue.
Please write something on the back of the card! Related to the picture, or about yourself or where you live, or a favourite quote or poem.
Besides the languages listed above I can also read Danish, Norwegian and Dutch.
PS. The cards in my Favourites section are examples of cards I have seen and liked, but do not already have.
