About Me

Hej! I am a girl obsessed with Sweden and Scandinavia. Would love to have a one on one Swap with a Swede! Message me if you are interested!. Apart from that I love correspondence, writing and receiving handwritten letters, postcards, parcels, mixcds and care packages... which everyone here loves as well. I've been into swapping and letter writing long before I joined here, but mostly with people I meet through other medium.. so I'm quite excited.

I'm inlove with Indiepop and I love to dance to it inside my room. I'm a dog person, but I want a scottish fold cat. I enjoy gloomy rainy days and the word "galoshes." Jens Lekman is the most beautiful creature on earth. I've been trying to learn Swedish for years, but nobody would teach me (it is tough!). I would like to live in Sweden some day but it is improbable. I adore wonderful Pandas, anything Scandinavian, Moomins, Studio Ghibli, coloured vinyl (pretty pretty!), French films, vintage children's book illustrations, thrift shops, paper products, stationery, crafts, souvenirs(from your hometown) and other ephemera. I love random acts of kindness and always make it a point to pay it forward. I adopt plush toys from charity shops... and give them a home (mine!). I like folding paper in my spare time but I hate paper cuts. I spend fika with my friends whenever I can. I enjoy drawing from time to time.My dream is to backpack my way around the world, and maybe bump into YOU somewhere.

PS. please understand, our mail system is a bit slow here, give it time before it arrives. And If you haven't received anything for ages, I would appreciate if you tell me first instead of just giving me a bad rating, I would gladly resend stuff. It usually takes more than two weeks for international mail.

Response: Yay! Hello! I am glad it got there safe and sound and that the little dalahäst was not flattened. It was so much fun putting all the things together, so I'm happy you like it. Thank you for the heart and for visiting my shop. I would love to be penpals in the future, I'm just in a quandary as of the moment and have to reply to many.

Hei! How fun to meet a "Scandinavia fan" from such a faraway place! I love Galaxie 500, and I also really love the cover that British Sea Power (one of my long-time fave bands) has made of their Tugboat.

Thank you for the postcard from Singapore which I received yesterday (Friday). It was a lovely surprise! Is this for a swap or just a "Thinking of you" postcard? Please give me your mailing address, as I have a lovely postcard I just bought last week that must have been picked with you in mind. :-)
