About me

I'M TAKING A BREAK FROM SWAP-BOT. I'll be back when I feel like it :) So please don't send me any private swap messages, as I don't even check this page that often that I could react them in a reasonable time. Thank you :)

♣ Terveiset vielä suomalaisille swappikavereille:

Kaikki Muumiaiheinen on tervetullutta :) Ja jos karkkia lähetätte niin perus fazerit kyllä käy sieltä lähikaupasta, ettei tarvii mitään erikoisuuksia lähteä ettimään muualta. Voi myös yllättää jollain erikoisella, vaikka ulkomaantuliaisilla.


Comment: Thank you for another lovely card for this series of swaps. You always send beautiful cards and I love the stamp also. I hope that you are enjoying your spring. It is cold and wet here in autumn.

Comment: Thanks for another beautiful Christmas postcard. Glad you are enjoying some spring weather; I'd love to experience spring in Finland! Here in Houston we are in the mid-80s but with low humidity for an amazing change! That is to end by the coming week and we'll get back to needing the air conditioning. It's been wonderful to have windows wide open with a lovely breeze! Take care! Thanks!

Whippet on Nov 16, 2014:

Thank you for lovely multi - view postcard of the Adventure Park! Glad you liked the Harry Potter postage stamps. Not sure when I will get any more Harry Potter items. Though recently my family drove by Universal Studios Park & at night I saw in sunset the towers & bldg. of Hogwarts. Just like in the photo images! That night they had some fireworks. The coming holidays I hope I can see more of the parks. - Kathy
