About Me

I am a 30something years old girl living with my boyfriend in the North of Germany close to Hamburg, the city of my heart which is also known as "die schönste Stadt der Welt" (world's most beautiful city). I love walking around there to take pictures of the harbour, the Speicherstadt or other wonderful places.
As I originally come from a little town in South Germany, I love to go there visiting my family and showing Franconia & Bavaria to my boyfriend. We also love to spend our leisure time on day trips, e.g. to the North Sea or the Baltic Sea or to other beautiful places all around here for taking photos and exploring nature. In summer 2014 we went on a little roadtrip to Finland via Sweden and we fell in love with the beautiful city of Helsinki, so we were there some more times already :)

Something about the sent button & me ;):
As I have a little notebook where I write down sent date, adresses of partners etc. of each swap, I don't look at my dashboard every day or just use tablet or mobile phone and so I forget quite often to click the button when a swap is sent. Please don't think I am a flaker cause of this ;)

I usually put swaps in the mailbox in time, but some mailboxes here get emptied just once a day from Mo-Fri, so the stamp date on the letter may be from a later day.

Follow your heart or how I use to rate...
I hate to give bad ratings and so I prefer to wait patiently for long travelling swaps or contact my partner, if nothing arrives. If you can't send in time, just a little message to me and everything is fine :)
For me hearts are a nice way to thank you for spending a little time thinking of me or putting special effort into a swap before sending out :)

Tea Time :)

As tea swaps are my favourite swaps, some words about the teas I love:

I drink a lot of green & black tea (pure or flavoured) , but white, herbal & fruit ones are welcome, too :)

Some flavours I am not so happy with: rooibos tea at all, any licorice stuff, too much cinnamon, cream & sweets related ones as caramel, marshmellow etc., hibiscus, rosehip, plain orange & lime (mixed with other fruits they are ok). I am not a friend of artificial tastes at all and prefer mostly natural flavoured teas.

If it goes to tea brands:

  • Løv, PUKKA, HIGHER LIVING, CLIPPER, CUPPER and ENGLISH TEA SHOP are my favourite brands - I love the cute packages & the wonderful flavours!

  • I love tea from NORDQVIST, CURTIS, GARANT, MISTRAL, AHMAD TEA... I am especially happy about those tea brands I can't get here in Germany

  • I love organic teas a little more and love to share them with my swap partners.

  • If you live in Suomi: I love, love, love the NORDQVIST Moomin teas! Green and white NORDQVIST teas are also very welcome.

  • Other favourites I can't get here: Teekanne Green Tea Strawberry Lemongrass, Sweet Sakura Green Tea, Pickwick Liefde & Passie, Garant Rabarber Vanilj, Brewhaha Happiness Super Tea, STASH Mellow Moments, STASH green teas, DAVIDs TEA forever nuts...
    My boyfriend will be endless grateful, if he gets another bag of "Eksplozivna češnja-cola" (1001 CVET) from Slovenia :).

Don't worry, if your tea selection seems not to fit my taste: I am open to try almost everything :-) As I am a passionate tea swapper, I will also find someone loving the tastes I don't like.

(edited 21st June 2016)

What I love...

  • DIY - being creative in many different ways & making life more colourful (esp. love sewing & drawing)
  • photography in (almost) every moment of life
  • Moomins :)
  • Finland & the Finnish language (which is so hard to learn, but I try my very best to get along...)
  • Scandinavia
  • chocolate is always welcome :) No matter whether it is dark, milk or white, filled or plain. My boyfriend loves caramel a lot, I have a crush on salted chocolate. We both love organic stuff a little more...
  • natural & organic cosmetics, bathing stuff (we have a bathtub) & body care with light scents like cherry blossom, magnolia, green tea, white musk (esp. from The Body Shop) etc.
  • sock size EU 37/38...UK 4,5/5...US 7/7,5
  • woodland animals (esp. foxes, rabbits & badgers) and birds esp. robins, bluetits, sparrows, swallows and owls
  • things with ladybugs, strawberries, apples, cherries & cherry blossoms, stars, music notes, four-leaf clover, mushrooms (esp. toadstools)...on it
  • polka dotted things in different colours, especially in red-white combo
  • Calvin & Hobbes
  • pics and drawings by Kurt Halsey Frederiksen

Feel free to send me things that make yourself happy, so I will surely like them, too :)

What I don't like...

  • low quality chocolate - better less high quality chocolate instead of a strange mix of sugar, fat and a touch of cocoa ;)
  • licorice & licorice-flavoured stuff
  • artificial smelling & tasting stuff
  • peanutbutter & peanut-flavoured stuff
  • Hello Kitty, Diddl and similar stuff
  • pink, pastell-coloured things & glittering stuff
  • intensive & very sweet smelling things (candles, cosmetics etc.)
  • charms & jewellery (I am nickel-allergic)
  • sorry, I am not a big fan of ATC's, ephemera, scrapbooking...

Some notes...

It would be great if you can send swaps in envelopes & not in boxes, so they easily fit into my postbox and I don't have to visit the post office to get them... So I would'n mind, if you send the teabags simply unboxed in an envie instead a box of tea in a package. If a swap can only be send in a box, please contact me for my P.O. box adress :)

  • I reuse packages, envelopes etc. so don't wonder if you receive a package which looks a bit "used" or once was a box of cookies or anything like that...
  • I will resend swap-items, if I have something which is perfect for another partner. So don't think, I don't like the items you sent me. I am not picky;) But I love to share beautiful things and making people happy!

  • if you don't receive a swap from me, please contact me before rating. I will always resend a not received swap!!

Comment: Thank you for the great teas! <3 Each of them will be a good start for my coming mornings.
Comment: The tea is all new to me and I am excited to try them, especially the green pear! The tea packaging is very pretty, I enjoyed reading your note on such a cute card and love the washi tape and postage stamps you used. Thanks so much! I too was surprised that only 3 people participated in this swap, but at least it was just the right amount of people we needed to complete this swap. :) Thanks for joining and I hope your year got off to a great start!
