About Me

Hi! My name's Barbara, I'm 31 years old and I live in north-eastern Italy! I'm a freelance architect and in my freetime I love drawing, snailmailing, postcrossing, crafting and reading books and comics, especially Japanese mangas! I collect children's illustration books, cute illustrated postcards and small kawaii tin boxes! I'm also fond of any type of kawaii stationery! I love stickers, especially the ones by korean, chinese and japanese stationery!

And here's my favorite gallery on Postcrossing:


Anyway I will like every postcard I receive, the message on the back is very important for me and I love to know more of people from all over the world!


I don't like: everything is old/vintage, insects, roses and their perfume, brown color, religious related images.

  • kawaii stationery (note pad sweets, stickers, erasers, etc).
  • illustrated postcards
  • cute badges, pins.

Decorate #9--Rainbows

Sola79 on May 26, 2013:

“Paint a rainbow inside of you, paint a rainbow, let your smile shine through. When it's cold and gray, push the clouds away, paint a rainbow in your heart.”

“Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high, There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby”

"Be a rainbow in someone else's cloud."
