About venicesunrise...

Hello! I live in St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest town in the USA. My interests include travel, photography, history, museums, watercolor painting, art, theater, books, languages, hiking, cross-stitching, etc. And I love Postcrossing!

I would really LOVE a card from my wish list. Thanks! But if you can't find a card that fits my preferences, just send me one that you think is nice.

Please no handmade or ad cards. I also don't like witchcraft, Harry Potter, skulls, cemeteries, coffins, vampires, zombies & Halloween.

A nice stamp or two would be very appreciated. Especially if the stamps have ships, cats or flowers on them.
