About Me

I live in Uruguay, South America, and mail here seems to be run by snails literally ;) so except for anywhere in Latin America, parcels would take no less than two to three weeks to arrive. I have never flaked, so please pm me if you have doubts about your package date

I'm married. My last visit and swap here was 2012. I was working too much and had to stop swapping. Two years later, I became a mother. Almost 5 years later, I'm all into starting swaps again! I'm a teacher of English as a second language to primary and preschool students. I love animals in general, esp. cats and dogs. I'm very much into animal welfare and environmental issues. I love recyling, composting and gardening. I'm mad about Jamie Oliver and all about him -cookbooks, items and projects!

I'm in love with dragonflies, pineapples and plant/flower/tropical designs! I love making crafts with paper, I like stationery in general. I'm a recycle freak! ...so you might get a recycled wrapper, envelope or box. I like romantic comedies and witty films. The smell and sound of the ocean soothes me. I enjoy receiving letters from people I don't know yet and information from different welfare associations, esp. those related to animals or environmentalism. I'm amazed by nature, things you discover in places you see every day, memories I thought I'd forgotten...

Favourite Movies and TV Shows

My fave movies are: Amelie, Wizard of Oz, A Love Song for Bobby Long, Stranger Than Fiction, Mona Lisa Smile, Batman (Michael Keaton's esp.) all Tim Burton's and Wes Anderson movies.

Grace and Frankie, Pushing Daisies, Gilmore Girls, Friends, Seinfeld, Mad About You...

House renovation TV shows are my newest itch!


Swallows and birds in general (free! no cages please!) - Foxes - Rainbows - Fraggle Rock -The Gruffalo- Hello Kitty - Chococat - Felix the Cat - The muppets - ALF - Gummi Bears - Mickey Mouse (old one) - Alice in Wonderland- Roald Dahl- Dr. Seuss - Sonic the Hedgehog & Tails - Ferrets - Dragonflies - Chinese paper lamps.

I'm in love with the UK, so any item from there would be awesome!

I like second hand items as well. I dream of visiting those huge second hand (which do not exist here) where anything can be found!

I have a metre-long vermicompost and I plant tomatoes during summer.


I'd like to have sooo many things...but here are some of them: Eco friendly items (bamboo toothbrushes, straws and reusable mugs). Cloth or paper garlands, pennants and/or buntings. Buttons (also known as badges). Tea, hot chocolate or coffee. Rubber stamps. View Master Reels (used - in good conditions).
Items from animal welfare associations. Anything with a black cat on it. Ribbon, lace or any kind of inchies. Something related to ferrets. Reusable Grocery bags. Letter sets, note cards, printed labels and washi tape (paper preferrably). The Body Shop items. L'Occitane soaps. Funky socks. Books about food gardening. Environmentally related books.


Leather or Fur items, animal print, doll prints (pictures or drawings of dolls too!). Licorice or orange flavoured chocolate, yuk. Barbie, Bratz, Highschool Musical, Hannah Montana & similar. Anything religious.

Favorite Books

I'm very interested in the books listed below, so if you're to send me a book or you're willing to do any private swap in exchange of any of the following, i'll be more than grateful!! (they can be used if they're in good conditions).

-The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan -How to cook a wolf by MFK Fisher -Most good least harm by Zoe Weil -Jamie Oliver's cookbooks -Bravery Magazine -Dr Seuss -Gardening books (food especially) -Beatrix Potter books

Que alegria saber de ti, tengo una postal y una estampilla que quieren viajar a Uruguay. Te enviaré un pm mañana. Un abrazo de oso para ti :D

Anniehall on Feb 6, 2012:

Sheila, me he acordado mucho de ti: mis primos fueron a Punta del Este y regresaron encantados con Uruguay, me trajeron unos alfajorcitos deliciosos! Por cierto, tengo una postal para ti, me encantaría enviartela para romper el hielo y retomar el contacto. Saludos y un abrazo :)

Brendasue on Jan 2, 2012:

I'll be preparing your package for the handbag swap and am super excited that I can send it to a neighbor:) (I live in Paraguay:)
