From Oulu/Finland

A large coffee by Kaj Stenvall, 1999

This card is part of big swapping project between Leena from Finland and me. I first got a card of Kaj Stenvall's Donald lookalike duck via official postcrossing and loved it! After discovering the postcrossing group on facebook I asked whether anybody have some more cards of Stenvall because I did not find any of them during my holiday in Helsinki last May. Somebody recommended having a conversation with Leena because she might have some - and this was the beginning of our swapping. All in all we are swapping five cards and I am looking for even more cards of Kaj Stenvall's duck. So please if you have any available for swap let me know!

From Lemesos/Cyprus

Moomin Characters
This lovely Moomin card was a direct swap via official postcrossing with Merja from Cyprus. I found her while searching for some nice cards to put on my favorites list. She had a link on her profile showing her swap cards and as I am big fan of The Moomins I had to ask her for swapping this card. On the card she gave me a little history lesson of Cyprus. Unfortunately there not so many postcrossers from Cyprus - but there should be some more if they have Moomin cards for swap!
