Hello from England!
I'm a 38 years old girl, originally from Finland but have been living in England for over 11 years now. I enjoy crocheting (and have several ongoing wips ;)), reading, writing letters, snail mail, cooking & baking... I like to try new crafts, too, currently I'm quite into making collages and I'm trying to learn to draw and use watercolours, and I've just started my first embroidery project. I'm also a tea addict and drink silly amounts of tea - I love flavoured black teas the most but also enjoy green tea as well as rooibos, white and quite a few herbal ones. I love trying out new ones! I'm currently on long term sick leave because of metastatic bowel cancer so I'm stuck at home most of the time.
I'm happy to receive all kind of cards, so please don't feel like you must send me a card that matches my wishlist - as long as it is a postcard, I'll be fine :). The list below has just some themes I particularly like:
- crocheting, knitting, sewing
- Alice in Wonderland
- Postcrossing meet-up cards
- The Lord of the Rings/the Hobbit/anything Tolkien related
- mail boxes and post offices, anything mail related
- maxi cards
- matryoshka dolls
- Unesco World Heritage Sites
- cherry blossoms
- beautiful nature views
- tea/coffee, teapots
- books, libraries, people reading
- a house or houses, cottages, windows, doors, narrow streets, street scenes...
- Virpi Pekkala's illustrations
- squirrels, chipmunks, hedgehogs, sheep, penguins, wolves, otters
- cards from my favourites in my postcard wall
but like I said, anything will be welcome (although if at all possible, I would rather not have advertising postcards or postcards with clowns or extremely religious themes, and I prefer single view cards). I prefer cards written and stamped, not in an envelope. I love pretty stamps as well!
It would be nice if you could write more than just "Greetings from X" on the card, though; I love fully written cards! If you have trouble thinking of what to write, tell me for instance what has made you happy recently, what you see outside your window, what you like the most about where you live, what your favourite food is...
RUSSIAN USERS! I'm trying to collect a viewcard of all different regions of Russia. I already have lots of cards from Moscow and St. Petersburg but not that many from other places. If you have a card from any other place it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! ^_^
GERMAN USERS: if you happen to have stamps of Pippi Longstocking, Heidi or the Wolf and the Seven Young Goats, I would absolutely love those!
If you live in Europe, I would love Europa stamps!
