About Me

Hi I'm Sheila and I live in North Carolina. My husband grew up in Long Island, New york and still has a aunt that lives it New York City. I just love NYC! I grew up in Oklahoma and we moved out to the East coast a few years ago. I love it here.The only bad part is that both my grown children and their babies still live in Oklahoma. I have three young grandbabies that I just love so much.

I love lighthouses and collect them. Living by the coast makes it easier to see them besides just postcards and pictures! I collect postcards from all over the world and have for years. I have hundreds of them but it's still not enough!

I give hearts for postcards sent unwritten in a envelope!!!

My Favorites postcards are:




~Covered Bridges

~City views


~famous places or things

~Oriental / Asian

~Geisha / Maiko

~Celtic / Irish

~Traditional costumes / clothing

~Map Cards

~Cats (any small or large, wild or tame)

~Kaj Stenvall postcards

~Snow Scenes

~Northern Lights / Aurora Borealis

~Inge Löök

~Anne Geddes

~Makoto Muramatsu

~Pretty much anything pretty or interesting! :)
I do prefer bought postcards rather than made ones.

I love nice Souvenir fridge magnets!!!

I also absolutely love tigers!! I collect everything and anything I can to do with tigers! That includes Tigger. I don't think there is a room in my house without tigers in it! :) I even have a tiger tattoo. And of course I love house cats too and have two of my own. My husband collects wolves, so I have to leave a little space for him. :) I love most animals but cats are my favorite.

I would LOVE a tiger stuffie or amigurumi! I so want these and can't sew or crochet myself! Also would love a tiger matchbox!!! :)

I also love orential things,Japanese, Asian or whatever. They seem to make everything so pretty. Also anything Celtic. Like to get new things from far off places.

I also love trying out new teas. I like fancy teas cups and would like to collect them also! My Mom-in-law is English, so I have to have tea and nice tea cups! :)

My favorite colors are red, pink and purple. My daughter used to love everything pink and purple when she was younger and I guess it just grew on me! :) I also like all shades of blue and dark greens such as forest green.

My favorite flowers are yellow roses.

I love incense and candles. Just not anything to strong perfume smelling.

I'm crazy about sweets and love anything cinnamon. Of course chocolate is at the top of my list too, as is ice cream, cake, cookies, etc. Basically if it sweet I like it! :)

I can't wear perfume as it gives me terrible migraines!

Favorite Music

I like most all music except rap. Love Celtic music!My tastes are varied really Bon Jovi, George Strait, Enya, Train, etc...

Favorite Movies

Anything with Julia Roberts or Meg Ryan in it! Love a good romantic movie. Throw in a little comedy and it's all the better!

Favorite Television

Lost, Desprate Housewifes, all the Law and Order Series, most of the reality show such as Survivor, Big Brother, and The Amazing Race. I also have my soaps that I watch Young and Restless, As the World Turns and Guiding Light. I probably watch too much tv!

Favorite Crafts

I am trying to get into scrapbooking. I like to take photos. I'm also interested in learning more about ATC's and the decorated matchboxes. I've never actually seen any except pics on the internet.Would love to get some ATC's or Matchboxes in a swap to get an idea of what they are all about! I would also be happy to get supplies for any of these crafts. Anything different and interesting really.

Comment: thank you so much for the beautiful pc. I agree that lighthouses have a romantic and mystic feel about them. Kind of reminds me of ancient times when they were in use always compared to nowadays.And yes I do enjoy the card as i do love lighthouse cards.
