About Marina...

Hi there !

I am an entrepreneur, owned buy 2 green cheeks conures and 2 rescued dogs, once a widow now a wife of a stubborn amazing guy.
Born nostalgic and happy to call La Isla Del Encanto my home for the past 4 years.

Some of my favorite things not necessarily in this order are: rescuing dogs, chocolate ice cream, photography, sending and receiving mail, surprising my friends with gifts (I often send them a copy of my favorite books), Tim Burton movies, the ocean, vintage everything, Motown music and food trucks!

Vintage and/or vintage looking postcards are my favorites. I have a collection of old/vintage original postcards (from the 1900's up to about 1970's). If you happen to have one (even if its written) please put on an envelope and send it my way along with a side note and the postcard ID. It would make my DAY!

But here is a hint of my other preferences:
- Halloween (any time of the year)
- Vampires
- Zombies
- Skulls
- Motorcycles
- Tim Burton (anything about his movies and characters)
- Funny cards
- Photography cameras
- Birds
- Pin Up
- Watercolor
- Banksy
- Illustrations
- Maps
- People dancing
- Dogs
- Weird, odd and strange cards are welcomed as well.

You can send whatever your heart feels best. In reality what is more interesting to me is the message on the back. So, please refrain from just saying "Greetings From...". If you dont know what to write tell me about your biggest fear or about the happiest day in your life. A list of your favorite things is cool too. I also take suggestions on the next book I should read for example.

Happy postcrossings to all. ;-)

PS: One of my missions in life is to help as many stray dogs in Puerto Rico as I can (the situation got a lot worse after Hurricane Maria devastated the island last year). Right now we are fostering 2 siblings that we rescued - Simba and Lulu - and getting them ready to fly to the US where they have a bigger chance on getting adopted by a loving home. This is their GoFundMe page:
If you would like to know more about Simba and Lulu follow me on Instagram @ Born Nostalgic ;-)
