Hello from Miami!
We are currently renovating a 1950s house... everything from replacing the roof to refurbishing the 1950s terrazzo... about to tackle the 1970s Pepto bathroom next!
I do like postcards and I have quite a collection, more based on their design rather than any particular theme (like travel, advertisements, etc.).
If you asked me if I would rather read a book or do just about anything else, the answer will be: READ!
birds, art cards, watercoloring, gardening, the color blue (but really all the colors!) photography, writing, pen pals, turkish coffee, anything related to educating children (I homeschool my older twin sons - they are finishing first grade, I also have a 4 year old son), cooking/baking, following the markets/trading stocks, street art, and last but certainly not least: dark chocolate.
