About Me

UPDATE 22/10/2018 Hello! For medical reasons I will not participate to many swaps.

Hello!! My name is Vicky and i live in Athens, capital of Greece. As far as I can remember i always collected postcards..and my friends and family always bring me cards from their travels.

I like to travel, go to museums and galleries. I love art, history, paintings and i always wanted to study art conservator but for some personal reasons i didn't. I study for a while interior design and computer programming. My favourite painters are Monet, Van Cogh, Renoir, Vermeer. I can't wait to visit Amsterdam and Van Gogh Museum. A couple of months now in Athens it is an exhibition called Van Cogh Alive. I didn't found the time to go but i will do that very soon.

I also love anything vintage, and blue/white porcelain!! I adore marble, wood and stone in everything..maybe because i'm taurus and we love anything "earthly"..

My favourite colours are blue (all shades) and turquoise! I'm in love with flowers and especially bougainvillea which you can find it almost everywhere in Greece..Last summer i bought one for my balcomy and i'm sooo happy for that..i can't stop looking it everyday.. :) Hydrangeas and tulips are my favourite too. I plant some blue/purple hydrangeas a few weeks ago..i hope i will have flowers in the summer!!

I also love to play with my dogs. I had 3 dogs but now i have only 2 girls, Mara and Boubou. My boy Mickey died in 2013 :( I don't think i ever get over his death..my heart is broken that day because i had to make him euthanasia.. :(

I love cook and bake for my family and friends!! I always try to make new recipes and try new flavours. I love chocolate and curry! My friends and family always tell me that i have to open a cake shop or a restaurant or anything related with food..well, i dont have money for that right now..and i'm not perfect in food/cake decoration yet..

I'm addicted with Pinterest and Instagram! So if you want anyone add me :)

I'm just starting to scrapbooking so please send me anything you like!!

***** Recently I lost a couple of swaps, especially from UK, so I added my telephone number to my address*****

*******I always send my swaps on time so if you didn't received them PLEASE send me a message so i can re-send them to you. *******

*********PLEASE SEND ME ALL THE SWAPS IN ENVELOPE********

Favorite Music

The music is very important to me and my family. We have a family business who designs and manufactures the most famous greek musical instrument called "bouzouki". I love and hear all kind of music, depends on my mood..but my favourite is 80's - 90's . All time favourite singer/band: Celine Dion Adele Whitney Houston Rod Stewart Michael Bolton Roxette Bryan Adams Luther Vandross John Secada Alan Jackson All Green Chris Isaak Johnny Cash Simply Red Barbra Streisand Berlin Patricia Kaas Kenny G Sade U2 Elvis Presley Gary Moore Foreigner Bon Jovi Joe Cocker Annie Lenox Phil Collins Etta James Michael Bolton Otis Redding Enigma ...and so many more..

Comment: Received your PC today, thank you very much. Yes I have been to Athens, twice. Took her family there last year and everyone loves it. It is on the top two of our favorite places, Barcelona is the other. My husband and I hope it when he retires that we can spend a couple of winters there, we love the people, we love the atmosphere and we love the area - who wouldn't want to live there.
Response: I am so happy that you like my country and that you and your family had a great time here. Thank you so much for rating me and for the heart! Happy weekend!
