About Me

Ok, so I was 50 when I joined the site and Linda was already taken. I don't know if I am the 50th Linda to join the site, but then it was a really popular name.

I have a son, Nick who is living with me. He helps me with the house and drives me around. He has a dog, Baby is loads of fun, Nick too.

I just recently got a little Chihuahua, Nick found her. The owners were going to take her to pound or even worse dump her. So he brought her home for me. Her name is Sweet Pea.

I live in the Pacific Northwest in Washington state. We get lots of rain and yes the bluest skies you will ever see. If you are willing to stick around enough for those few days. We are surrounded by mountains and water.

I have lived in my little house for 27 years. I am lucky enough to have a basement that is laundry room, sewing room, craft room and workshop. It was plenty of space many years ago.

Favorite Music

Rock and Roll. With a little bit of country, blues, classical and Enya thrown in.

Favorite Books

Lots of them could never possible list all my favorites. Some that I have read over and over;

Lord of the Rings

The Stand

Cherry Ames nurse stories. I like vintage "teen series" books.

Adventure, mystery, thrillers, fantasy, historical drama, funny stories. I love books. I received a Kindle for Christmas and my birthday from my parents, it is fun.

Favorite Movies

Sci-Fi, thrillers, mystery, fantasty Hmmm kinda like my book list.

Independence Day

Old comedies, Like the Blondie and Dagwood movies, Ma and Pa Kettle movies and Doris Day movies.

Favorite Television

Documentaries, Antiques Roadshow, sewing shows. Some reality TV. History.

Old comedies Bewitched, Brady Bunch, Dennis the Menace, Bachelor Father, Father Knows Best and I could go on and on.

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, quilting, paper crafts, assembledge. I love doing art/junque journals and have about 6 or 7 of them in progress now.

I like to sew all different kinds of things, I just got a book called Hankie Coutore which showcases fancy dresses made out of vintage hankies. Since I collect those I hope to make some.

I like to use Acrylic paints and mediums in crafting. I also like to use vintage items.

Favorite Themes

This list is not complete, just a start. My mind is kinda blank.






I am not much into holiday themes. Except Halloween, I like that.


Small vintage items that I can use in art projects.




My favorite colors are brights and pastels and true colors. I am not into Autumn or muddy colors. Not a big fan of the royal colors but sometimes they are the best.

Stickers - partial sheets are fine with me.

Old pictures

Art and craft supplies of all kinds

Vintage ephemera

Old broken bits of jewelry, little figures.

Paper or fabric flowers
