Hi there! I'm one of your partners for the "Read my profile and write a comment" swap. :) I love owls too! A friend of mine sent me a letter and put the cutest little owl stickers on the envelope, and ever since then I've been kind of obsessed with them! :) Everything I see with an owl on it, I want to buy... I don't think my husband likes it very much though. Ha, ha!

Anyway, I enjoyed reading your profile. I've never been to Finland but I'd love to one day. Hope you have a great week! :)

Hi! You're one of my partners for the read my profile and leave a comment swap!

Your photography is so awesome!! Loved it!!

I like natural colors and natural materials too. And owls and deer and all types of animals. :)

And I have the Aussie 3 minute miracle in my shower right now! It is good stuff! It sucks you can't get that stuff in Finland or it's too expensive there. If you want to do some sort of private swap I could send you whatever products are easy to get here, hehe. I'm in the US, in Texas.

I see that you like sewing and knitting. I'm quite jealous as they are skills that I am not good at, no matter how much I practise!

I am also a fan of blues and greens, they look so fresh.

Happy swapping! x

Read my profile and write a comment swap

Hello there, I'll extend my hand towards the screen and hope you can imagine shaking it :-) I'm a big DIY person too, but I can't seem to focus on just one or two, which is why I probably haven't really gotten great at any of them yet. The two things that I've always been good at focusing on is writing and drawing, although I've found I can only draw when I have writers block and write when I'm having what I like to call "doodle" block. I hope everything is well in your world, the only book I can think of at this moment that to me was a great read is "1984" by George Orwell.

Hello from the United States , I enjoyed reading you profile , I too enjoy 2nd hand stores , it is like going on adventure , you never know what you will find, and what kind of history or exciting story is behind it . I enjoy getting postcards also to see other areas . I hope you have a great day !! Mary
