About Me


Hello I am someone that loves to send things out and receive things in the mail and I love postcards from different countries. I love swaps and love getting surprises. I was born and raised in California . When I was on active duty, The Marine Corps brought me to North Carolina and I have been here since 1990. Me and my husband love to do International travel and we both also love to go to the Disney parks and want to visit all the ones overseas someday! I love theme parks, reading, spending time with my animals, going to the movies and shopping. I also love to color and doodle. I am a Carolina Hurricanes season ticket holder and I LOVE getting swaps with Hurricanes gear! I love things like scarves, keychains, socks, shirts, blankets, stickers ect! As long as it has The Hurricane team logo, I am happy!

I have one fur baby named Sombrita. She is a Chihuahua. I have enjoyed getting animal treats from past swaps! I also have 5 Ducks, 4 Chinese Geese and 14 chickens. I love all my pets and have had them since they were born.

I love working in my garden and seeing all my roses and gardenias bloom every year.

I LOVE to bake! I have a lot of vintage cookbooks and enjoy making desserts from scratch... especially cakes and cookies. I love sweets.

I will rate your swap as soon as I get your item sent to me. I hope you will rate me as soon as you get mine! I send my swaps out on time and NEVER flake out and I never send Junk! If for some reason you cannot rate me with a 5 PLEASE contact me and let me fix it before leaving anything lower. I appreciate it!

Favorite Music

I love music and love everything from Dance music to Enya and everything in between. I am not a big hard rock or rock and roll person but I love music from the 1920s- 1950s. I was born in the wrong time period!!

Favorite Books

I love reading (and collecting) about anything to do with the 1920s-1960s, Vintage housewife advertising, books such as housekeeping, Charm School, Etiquette, Social history with a vintage past! I also collect Vintage cookbooks and Vintage ladies Magazines. I love the old persuasive advertisements and meticulous (though often misguided) advice experts, women from the 1940s to the 1970s were coaxed to follow some crazy advice! LOL Curious but absurd, and at times wildly funny period artifacts, outdated advice books and health pamphlets are fun to read and collect.

I also have a huge vintage Disney collection and a huge World War 2 collection that has many war bond posters.. I also love vintage clothing and accessories like head scarves, pins, sunglasses, makeup, I love to also read about Queen Elizabeth as I think she has had a fascinating life and has seen EVERYTHING! keeping up with the royal family and what they have been doing over in London.

Favorite Movies

This will take all day if I have to list them all... I have a HUGE dvd collection, if I had to throw them all out and keep one I would keep Schindlers list. I love Dramas and comedies but nothing scary. Steel Magnolias,Jason Bourne collection, Twilight, The Irishman, Casino, Goodfellows, The Great Gatsby, J. Edgar, Moneyball, Curious case of Benjamin Button, The Recruit, Spy Game, James Bond movies, Titanic, Devil wears prada, Stick it, Center stage, Naked gun, prize winner of Defiance Ohio, Peggy sue got married, The help, Pleasantville, Divine secrets of the ya ya sisterhood, Rebel without a cause ( I LOVE James Dean)Turning point.. ok Ill stop or Ill be here all day!

Favorite Television

I like old stuff and some new.. Sopranos, Six feet under, Land Girls, Mad Men, Greys Anatomy, Father knows best, Gilmore Girls, Ladies of London, Downton Abbey, Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, Weeds, Criminal Minds, Oz, Friday Night Lights, The Donna Reed show, The Honeymooners, I love Lucy, Ozzie and Harriet, I married Joan, Leave it to Beaver, Bewitched.. The Crown, Bar Rescue, Below Deck, The Blacklist, This is us, and all the old cartoons from the 1960-70s!!!

Favorite Crafts

I love making fleece blankets! I wish so bad I could sew. I tried to take lessons and even bought a machine which I gave away because I just couldn't do it. The blankets are idiot proof and I dont have to sew :) I want to now learn how to crochet a blanket.... LOL I have about 20 adult color books and I absolutely LOVE to color with good pens/pencils. I also love workbooks on how to doodle and how to do perfect handwriting with brush pens!

I can make some very nice beauty/spa items!

My Gardening hobby

I love gardening and grow beautiful flowers! It is very relaxing to me! Gardenias/Orchids/Hydrangeas/roses/tulips/ Strawberries/Sunflowers/Gerber Daisies and Hyacinths are a few things I grow!

Swap favorites

I belong to several secret pal groups and have done many swaps. I love bath products, Candy, lotions, scented candles, bubble baths, bath fizzies, linen spray, unique air fresheners, body spray, anything from Bath and Body works is very NICE! Anything for my gardening hobby would be very much enjoyed!! I love unique flower pots and ornamental items to put around my flowers. I also collect Ladybugs and Bubble bee decorations for my front yard.I also have Ducks and I have put up a lot of old vintage signs/advertisements at the front of their Duck house. I love Old Soda advertising, Anything Donald Duck is great! I love old and vintage items! (And no I do not care if they are reproductions!)

I love old style (1950-1960s) cute headbands!! I also LOVE Red lipstain!! I go through it like crazy!! The color is easy to find right now as reds seem to be back now!!
I also am a HUGE Carolina Hurricanes hockey fan! We are season ticket holders and I miss them playing since they had to stop because of the virus. I also like hats/tshirts/headbands ect. That have Carolina hurricanes on them! I wear a size large women's tops and XL for sweatshirts.. I like spice/Cinnamon/fruit smells. I also love Vintage Christmas items and any kind of Christmas Ornaments.

As far as candy goes I LOVE milk chocolate and Marzipan!! I also love sour candy.


Please do not send me any Used, Tacky, Free, Old or tasteless things. I do NOT like the taste of licorice, Jelly beans, Tootsie Pops, hard candy, white chocolate, Tea and dark chocolate. I do not like dolls, any religious items of any kind, no free bible verse cards/tourist handouts you find at welcome centers, stuffed animals, or romance novels. Please do not send me things that smell like cigarette smoke or strong incense/perfume. I suffer from allergies and strong perfume/incense triggers horrible migraines that require medication and sometimes a trip to the emergency room.

Please no handmade postcards or any type of free items/free reward items/No kids/juvenile items/Teacher rewards/Dirty/cracked or things that should of been thrown out. I am sure you would not like them either. :-)

I am not into Shabby Chic, Kawaii or country themed. I also do not like creepy looking or tomboy things. I am not a scrapbooker so please no craft/scrap supplies. I also do not have any children so children's items are of no interest or use to me. I hope I covered everything! Nice to meet you!


I started swapping postcards in 2007. I have a huge collection and I love to swap from different countries. I only swap professional/store bought cards. I swap for Lighthouses, Castles, Royal families, Royal Palaces, F1 Race tracks, City views/map cards/Theme parks/Country flags/UNESCO sites. Basically Tourist type of postcards.

Please No cartoon/Erotic/Handmade/Free/Ad/Animals/Vintage/Quotes/Jokes/anything for kids/juvenile or gore cards.

I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR LIGHTHOUSE POSTCARDS! I live near the Outer Banks so I have 7 lighthouses to trade with you! I do not care where they are from, message me for a private trade!
