About Ekaterina...

Regarding direct swaps please read the note below.

Hello world!

I'm Ekaterina and in the profile photo we are together with my husband George and our son Yakov (10 months old) near the Tamarro - mythical creature from Andorra.

Recently we have relocated to Andorra from St.Petersburg so now we are learning Spanish (feel free to use it as well as German). We are passionate opera-lovers. Also we are fond of Art Nouveau style in architecture/art. I worked as a tax advisor at EY, George is a software developer.

I adore stamps! It's such a pleasure to receive and look at stamps from different countries and to send postcards with beautiful stamps too! 2022 EUROPA stamps are dedicated to myths - if you by any chance have them, I would be very happy to see them on the incoming postcards.

If you don't know what to write on the postcard - you can tell us about children books famous in your country.

We enjoy receiving any kinds of postcards if they are chosen with love. But if you need some hints, below you can find several of our favourites just for your inspiration:
- mythology, folklore, medieval
- stained glass, Tiffany lamps
- fairy tales, cartoons, children book illustrations (especially Krtek, Gruffalo, Moomins, LINE friends, Sesame street, Studio Ghibli - Miyazaki's works) signed for our baby Yakov :)
- reprints of vintage posters
- portraits of famous people: writers, musicians, actors..
- black-and-white
- theatre, opera, ballet
- art: Basquiat, Lichtenstein, Chagall, Wrubel, Vasnetsov, Mucha, Klimt, Beardsley.. Popart and comics... and we are glad to know new artists!
- architecture: castles, museums...
- interesting fish (George doesn't miss a single aquarium!)
- animals: rams, sheep, seals, corgi dogs
- maxicards (cards with a stamp on the picture side & special cancellation)
- lantern press cards from US
- women in science by Rachel Ignotofsky
- postallove GF (Greetings From series, already have Brazil, Germany, Italy)
- FOTW from origin
- города России из серии картинка24 (уже есть Астрахань, Барнаул, Брянск, Владивосток, Великий Новгород, Екатеринбург, Ижевск, Иркутск, Калуга, Кемерово, Киров, Красноярск, Новосибирск, Омск, Пенза, Псков, Рязань, Саратов, Саранск, Севастополь, Смоленск, СПб, Тамбов, Тверь, Томск, Тюмень, Ульяновск, Хабаровск).

Please write the date on your card.

With love and peace,
Ekaterina, George & Yakov

REGARDING DIRECT SWAPS:
I receive a lot of suggestions to swap. I have a small baby to care about and I’m limited in time. In direct swaps I do not collect typical touristic postcards, I’m looking for certain postcards from my wishlist above. If you want to swap, please send me a link to your swap album or photos of available postcards (e.g. via email or instagram). I’m very sorry but I will not answer messages without clearly stated offers. Thank you for understanding ❤️
