Hello citizens of Earth! My name is Victoria and I am 33.
About me: I live in the city of Melbourne with my family, including a gorgeous Tonkinese cat, Bashir. My beloved dog, D'Argo, died in July, 2020. He was very special to me, and I miss him terribly. In December, 2020, I adopted a new dog from an animal shelter. He is a very cuddly 3-year-old kelpie x named Foyle. We love visiting the park together so Foyle can chase birds and run around like a mad thing.
I love crochet and junk journalling! There is nothing better than sitting on the couch crafting while watching a TV series with a pot of tea. That is perfection for me.
Speaking of tea, I am obsessed with tea! I love trying lots of varieties of tea, and collecting tea cups.
And stationery! I go weak at the knees over beautiful and colourful paper, pens, stickers and washi tape. I buy way more than I could ever use. But I can't help it!
I love murder mystery or whodunit TV shows ('Foyle's War' is the best). My favourite movies are: ‘Star Trek: First Contact’, ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ and ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’.
I enjoy visiting local cafes. I love Australian wine and beers.
I love music. I enjoy folk, swing, bluegrass, old-time, early rock 'n' roll and choral music.
Postcards: I love Postcrossing for the little connections you can make with people on the other side of the world. I would love to know something about you (be as creative and weird as you want!). I get so excited when I receive a fully written postcard. They make my heart jump for joy!
Please write the date on the postcard.
Suggestions for postcard themes (in no particular order):
-art and paintings (especially older ones, and ESPECIALLY Pre-Raphaelites)
-vintage illustrations (such as those from old encyclopedias or children's books)
-vintage travel posters
-Merida from 'Brave'
-dogs, especially illustrations
-costumes or historical clothing
-Alice in Wonderland
-I love bright colours!
-if you are crafty or arty I would LOVE a handmade card - I love to see the creativity of others!
-I love washi tape and stickers!
NOTE: anything rude, nude or explicit is fine
Envelopes are fine, folded cards are fine
I DON'T really like:
-multiviews or city views

Or anything else you would like to write!
