About Màiri...

hello you !

I live most happily surrounded by trees in Glasgow in bonnie Scotland

I like ( and work somedays in an art gallery ), apples, black coffee, walking in the woods, drawing, wine, music, online art challenges, reading books ( and work some days in a library ), walking by the sea, the sound of the sea, losing track of time beachcombing ....

I love to get snailmail and especially postcards :
see my favourites for an idea if you wish ! all those are cards I like and do not have ( my favourites received are marked with ♥ )

the months of the year / seasons of the year

seasonal / xmas / holiday - ❤ and especially postcards featuring seasonal greetings in your language

birthday (post)cards in april too !


cards featuring ☂ umbrellas

people flying with birds ( or anything else ! ) (this album is on pinterest)

people wearing red hats

people reading / postcards of postcards / cherryblossom / apples

Illustrators I like : yana fefelova ( I love the bear ones ! ) / rudolf koivu / martta wendelin / irina smirnova / julia pilipchatina / károly reich ( album on pinterest ! ) / joan ferrándiz / nina chen / amandine piu / marysya rudska / chihiro iwasaki / daniela drescher / anna berezovskaya / sigutė ach / jean-baptiste monge / pauli ebner / gaelle boissonnard...other illustrators too ! / illustrations of fairytales esp. hans christian andersen tales

state flowers and birds of the usa


....and illustrated owls have their own album :

however.....relax ! ...
I'm happy to receive any postcard that you choose to send !

I do prefer actual postcards - rather than folded cards - and travelling on their own - rather than in an envelope - the marks of travel can add to the charm sometimes

some suggestions for you for the blank side :
I welcome everything that makes a postcard more lively, colourful and interesting : a drawing / stickers !!! / if you are arty then go for it ! / favourite book or movie / what delights you / your favourite quotation / joke / saying / the date is always good too !

however you wish to express yourself is good
