Comment: OMG You thought on everything! For a full day I ate like a swedish! That Rocky Road clusters!!! Never had Rocky Road anything, I'm a fan now <3 I still need to do the raspberry mousse on top of a mud cake, and guess what!? Raspberry and Chocolate is my favorite chocolate combo! :D Thank you so much! <3
Comment: Veera! Thank you soOOo much for the beautiful package of stamps, coins, ephemera and goodies. I cannot believe how much you sent. I absolutely looove everything! I am so excited!! It was all packaged so nicely too. Thank you so much! 😍🥰❤
Comment: Thank you for the lovely card. Never heard of that song before, i am listening to it right now.
Seems that Veera is a real magnet for the guys. :-) So interesting how many songs are devoted to ladies.
Have an awesome day!
Comment: Tack för ditt mail! Det är en av få gånger jag fått en från samma land som partner. Jag gillade dina svar och jag hoppas verkligen att du kan uppfylla din dröm om att bo på ett ställe där du kan ha massa djur. Det är absolut värt det <3
Comment: CIao! Your package arrived today, thanks for using nice stamps. My husband stole the chocolate bar with hazelnuts XD I fell in love with the strawberry chocolates! I'll try the rest tomorrow at work. Thanks for everything!
Response: Wow, that was so fast delivery! I hope you will like the rest too :) I love those strawberry ones... they just announced new flavour for those pralines and I can't wait to test it out.
Comment: Thank you so much for this amazing swap! I really enjoyed going through everything you sent me. Everything is just perfect you picked. I loved every piece and you put so much effort into it. Thank you again!
Stay creative and lots of love~
Response: So happy to know you liked it! It was super fun to put together that one :)
Comment: Deer Veera,
thank you so much for your lovely package. It was a delight to go through everything and taste a bit of Sweden. I wish I could give you more than one heart. Thank you again!
Lots of love, Julia
Comment: Kiitos mielenkiintoisesta kortista. Jännä ajatella millaista elämä on ollut kun kulkupelit vielä olivat hevosvetoisia. Tykkäsin myös perhospostimerkeistä. Harmi että osa lomastasi meni nuhaisissa merkeissä.
Thanks for the interesting card with a historical photo of horse carriages.
Comment: Ninna! Those are wonderful stamps! I wasn't expecting that much beautiful stuff when I joined the swap. And you are very generous, you've sent much more than required amount of stamps. You made me very happy! Wonderful additions to my collection, I can't thank you enough.
Response: Wow, it was fast delivery! So happy you liked them :) I sometimes buy surprise stamp bags from collectors and the latest one had lot of USSR and space themed... Which I don't collect but I was so happy when I read your profile and realized I got just the perfect ones for you. I still have quite lot of stamps that fit your profile so hit me up if you wanna private swap :)
Comment: And it is me again :)
Thank you very much for your package! I just got it in my mailbox. I absolutely can`t read what treats you sent me, but I am really excited to try them in the evening with my husband! Thank you again, your package really made my day better.
Have an amazing day, and lots of love, Julia
Comment: Thank you so much for your package! I loved the chocolate you send me. My husband and I just munched it away during one evening watching some movies. I can understand now why it is one of your favourites! Thank you again!
Have an amazing day and lots of love
Comment: Dear Ninna, thank you very much for the beautiful postcard. I wish you beautiful days and I hope that you will not come across any animals on the road. Good luck and a full box of beautiful postcards and letters.
Comment: Thank you for the NY postcard :) I've also never been in the US and I also hate flying haha! But I would love to travel there at least one time in my life. Sweden though, I plan to visit sooner and it's far easier to get to ^^
Comment: Thank you for the wonderfully thoughtful letter. I love it. I'm adding the St Olav's trail to my travel bucket list. It looks fantastic. I hope you get to walk some of it again this summer.
Response: Thank you for heart! So nice to know you liked it :)
If you end up hiking the path pass my home village, feel free to stop by for a break!
Comment: Hi! It's so hard to decide, they all sound like they could be true! Hmm... My guess is no. 1 is false - I don't think your teacher taught all the kids to play the piano. Let me know the answer! 😅
Thanks for the fun swap and enjoy the rest of your weekend! 🙂
Response: Oh, you got it right :D And I thought I was going to be so clever! The thing is that she did attempt to teach us all (it was very small school in 90s, we only had about 10 kids in that group so it wasn't too big task) but I was so completely uninterested on it that I just stopped learning after two tries. I am bit sad about it now, would be cool to be able to play piano :/
Comment: Tusen takk for swappen som kom i posten i dag :) Her var det mye spennende, og jeg tror jeg kommer til å få brukt det aller meste :) Jeg mangler bare konvolutt, så er din swap klar til å sendes. Takk for at du ville swappe med meg :)
Response: Vad bra det hittade dit :) Jag också älskar denna Pride-frimärken! Brukar köpa några varje gång jag handlar frimärken.
Comment: Thank you for the spring notecard Veera. I love that tiny priority sticker on the envelope -- are those standard issue or did you get them somewhere special? I must admit I still wonder how you spend your days during the covid19 pandemic as it says on your profile that you're taking it slow with swaps because of it and here you got me as a partner twice! LOL Is this what you do to take your mind of things?
Response: It is a standard one that came with stamp.
Profile is not up to date due to extraordinary busy times with work and other hobbies.
Comment: Thank you very much for the lovely PCs.
I visited Sweden a couple of times: with my parents, after that with my boyfriend (now husband) and as a family with 2 children. Still on my wishlist.........
Lovely to see your Queen instead of the King on the rather traditional stamp!
It is a tradition here to have queen on international stamp! King is portrayed on domestic stamp. I usually use domestic stamps but now and then I get some queen stamps too.
Comment: Thank you for the funny stick figure card! Hope there will be more of this swaps :) Thank you for the little stamp collection on the back of the card and the Hilma af Klint stamp. I came across here recently in a magazine, fascinating lady. By the way I have just send a postcard to you! And now have a nice Sunday.
Comment: Oh, thank you so very much for this lovely hedgehog postcard! St. Pölten! :) :) We sometimes go there for a daytrip, because it it just 25 minutes by train. It is really a lovely town :) I hope you are doing fine!!! Take good care!
Comment: Dear Ninna, thank you so much for your lovely mail. It made my day brigther and I loved every piece of it.
You nailed the theme really. Thank you again! Sending you lots of love from Austria,
Comment: Thank you for sharing all the bits and pieces out of your life. I am impressed that you still have snow. Here it is 18 degrees and it looks like we already have summer instead of spring. And now have a nice afternoon and a colourful Eastern.
Comment: Oh Ninna, you really made my day and made me smile! Thank you so much for the wonderful postcard. By the way I really liked this swap and hope there will be more in the near future. And now have a nice evening.
Comment: Thank you of the old picture of Sundvall. Your mountain experience sounds challenging. I have to admit I am rather a seaside person, my highest point was the table mountain and I took the cable car ;).
Comment: Hi, Ninna, thank you for the postcard which arrived today! Wow, Sweden has some beautiful postage stamps! I hope you have a wonderful weekend with a nice break from your long commute to the city. :)
Comment: Thanks for all the goodies you sent. 😀 The hazelnut cream pouch was really good. I can’t wait to try everything else! Also thank you for translating in English what the snacks were. 😀 Much appreciated! Thanks
Comment: Thanks for letting me know about your country! The "hejhej" story makes me smile. I had something similar when I went to Denmark - I was surprised to be greeted with "hej" because it sounds like English "hey" which you only greet people with when you know them, so it was confusing when shopkeepers or hotel staff greeted me like this!
Comment: I can't wait to try some of these goodies. I've had stuvor before--there are a lot of families of Swedish descent around here and if I am lucky someone will make these for a bake sale. Usually because they inherited a rosette iron from their great grandmother. And we can buy Wasa crisps in the grocery but only one flavor. I will have snacks to take me through the next snowstorm. Thank you!
Comment: Hello Veera, thank you for the card with great stamps! It made my day! I found your profile fascinating to read. You sound like a fantastic person! Wow. I was amazed to read about you. Merry Christmas. I will send you back a card. Cheers, Dale
Comment: Hello Veera -- thanks for the card. A good idea to to the Burgh Bites tour -- there really is a lot to eat in this city. :)
And CityTheatre always has something interesting happening.
All the best, Al
Response: Thank you for the heart!
I have always liked the culinary exploring so I got so excited about that tour I was actually disappointed when I realized I am not traveling for real...
Comment: What a lovely swap you've sent me! The decorated envelope and great stamps, the beautiful Iris notecard, fun extra bookmark of horses! And your weekend sounds happy, a interesting day in the city (I would have loved to join you to see the exhibit of folklore and creatures of the forest!) and a nice relaxing sunday. Thank You!
Response: So happy you liked it and thank you for the heart! It was quite special weekend, usually I am just home hanging out with puppies instead of going anywhere...
Comment: Thank you for such a lovely parcel! The horse paper you wrote on was really pretty and I look forward to trying the teas and swedish confectionary you have sent! The sticky notes are foxes to me, but they are one of my fave Woodland creatures so thank you so much <3
Response: So happy you liked it! :) The paper I use is very special for me. I bought it from Christmas market in 2016 in Helsingborg from a shop they had set in an old pharmacy building. I still remember that warm Christmas feeling there and going through all the paper prints they had. So sad I didn't get more than that one kind, but I was a student at that point and living on budget. Anyway, I will probably have to save the last page for myself, luckily there is still lot left!
Comment: Thank you for your letter! I'm sorry for all of the rough things in your life- but I hope it will get better soon! (ps- the envelope was super fancy- I love that metallic pen. And it doesn't matter if you misspelled things- I understood perfectly! I look forward to being paired up with you more in the future! Have a lovely day :) ) -Al
Response: Thank you! I actually just got new job (everything went really quick from calling to interview to signing papers) so basically 80% of that letter is not valid anymore :) And thanks, I have got so many well decorated envelopes but my own art skills are pretty much nothing so I went on simplified style and trusted on pretty metallic shine instead. Just got another pack of those pens.
Comment: Loved your letter and yesterday found a fun newspaper article about chickens that I will mail to you because the photo is great and I think you'd enjoy it. I lived with chickens growing up on a farm.
Response: Thank you! I have actually considered to go to "how to keep chickens" course so I can have my owns... once I get that own yard I have been thinking about. Such a funny birds.
Comment: Tack så mycket! Ymmärrän ruotsia paremmin kuin puhun sitä, niin kirjoitan loput suomeksi 😅 tosi kivat listat, kiitos! Kuulostaa just mun tyyliseltä musiikilta, ja rakastan että toi gradulista alkaa "this is gonna hurt":llä 👍👍
Response: Varsågod :) Joo sitä tuli kyllä kuunneltua paljon ja ihan täysillä laulettua mukana aina gradu projektin etsimisestä väitöstilaisuuteen asti. Mun gradun teemalaulu.
Comment: I LOVE the colors on the postcard you sent. in regards to the tattoos on your lower arms have you thought about tribal or celtic bands on each wrist. there are some cool celtic designs that will look great as bands
Response: So happy you liked it! Yeah, those look really nice. I have some tribal designs on my mind too, but it is just so hard to decide.
