About venicesunrise...

Hi! 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. I travel quite often, and I buy postcards whereever I go. I have a good mix of cards that I'd be happy to send out. :)

I would really LOVE a card from my wish list. Thanks! But if you can't find a card that fits my preferences, you can send me one that you think is nice. If you wish someone sent you that card, send it to me. :)

Please no ad cards, handmade, used, self-print or touchnote 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.
