About Maria...

Hello, my name is Maria. I love going in for family history and genealogy and have a youtube channel to share some search methods (under the name of Мария Копай). If your ancestors come from Russia and you need some advice in this respect, please, feel free to write to me, I will be happy to help.

Among other things I love:
* art (everything is great; esp. Pre-Raphaelites, Jan Vermeer and Pieter Bruegel ♥︎ )
* illustrations (lots of details, Anton Pieck, Norman Rockwell, Carl Larsson ♥︎ )
* modern graphics (James Jean ♥︎ )
* prints from old books (esp botanic and fauna ♥︎ )
* history of fashion, national costume
* magazine covers and old-style posters
* Victorian literature (Jane Austen, sisters Brontë)
* yoga, myths, legends, witchcraft and pagan festivals
* moomins (and hattifatteners, sure thing!), trolls and fairies
* Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker ♥︎
* old ladies by Inge Löök ♥︎
* Pettson and Findus ♥︎
* Beatrix Potter ♥︎
* Gravity Falls, the Simpsons, Futurama, Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, Over the Garden Wall, Song of the Sea, Studio Ghibli cartoons
* Terry Pratchett's Discworld
* Song of Ice and Fire by George Martin (the book was better!)
* cats (esp Jetoy, Hermitage, Maria Pavlova, dressed cats, Rumyantsev's cats&angels ♥︎)
* owls (any owls are great, esp. Inga Paltser and Belarus owls)

If you do not have anything of the kind, please, have a look at my favourites or choose the _strangest_ of your postcards or just let your fancy play round.

What I really don't like is plain tourist view cards, multi-view and most handmade (though sometimes it can be really awesome, like this SAR owl If you have nothing else to send, please, try to make it a bit more personal.

I am not a stamp collector, but I love nice stamps in line with the postcard and, generally, mail art. If you wish, you can send your card in an envelope - I won't mind at all. If you choose to put there something else, like signed cards that don't fit into your collection, small coins or banknotes, magnets etc - I won't mind either :)

And the last, but not the least. Please, write something about yourself, your thoughts or dreams maybe. Maybe there is an interesting fact you can share - of the card, the stamp, your country, hometown or your native language, national food and traditions, your ancestors and family legends. Please, feel free to express yourself. I am truly interested in you, my dear penfriend. Happy postcrossing and stay safe!
