About Me

I live deep in the forest with my pack- husband, 2 dogs and 1 cat. I spend my days teaching middle schoolers in a one room school house (complete with bell) built in 1917. I enjoy reading excellent and twisted fantasy novels and drinking coffee in the early mornings and practicing yoga in the evenings. My favorite swaps are generally quirky, music mixes.

Favorite Music

Books/Movies

.Serenity. .Death Proof. .'The Traveler' by John Twelve Hawks is currently my very favorite book. I am also a fan of Patrica Briggs, George R.R. Martin, Stephanie Meyer, Laurell Hamilton, Kim Harrison, Robin Hobbs, and Kelley Armstrong.

Gardening Goodness

I love my garden! If in doubt, I collect quirky garden art...gnomes, stained glass, goddesses, vibrant latin pottery and rusty metal statuary. I am always interested in seeds (zone 5) and the folklore and stories of plants. Green is good.

Comment: Thank you SO much for this wonderful swap! I absolutely love everything - the copper bracelet is amazing and absolutely what I love as jewellery (bravo to your husband! :)), the fossil is again something I love - and I have never owned one of leaves before, the seeds are wonderful, as is the painted leaf, the papers and the wonderful soap. Thank you so much!!! The parcel arrived ripped - it was obvious that someone had made an effort to look inside, but luckily you had wrapped up everything in paper as well so I guess they didn't dare to rip that as well and didn't take anything. So glad about that!!!

Comment: Thank you, the star ornament with the spiral goddess is lovely. Brought back memories of playing around with making things out of copper wire as a kid. I loved the apple seed ornament -- so perfect and bright and teeny and natural!
