About Me

Hello! I am Nicole, a cottage-core cottage witch who lives at Quill Cottage with my husband, dogs, cats, and a large amount of ghost pets. I own a wildlife rehabilitation called Quill Cottage Wildlife.

I'll save the rest of my introduction for my penpal letters, but for those who are looking for guidance, here's a list of Things I Like:

Memento Mori art

Vincent Van Gogh

Edgar Allan Poe

Celestial themes

Pen pals

Farm living


Dark humor



Vintage botanical themes

Apothecary themes


Ocean themes





Chevy Camaros

All colors! All of them! All!!!



Animal Crossing: New Horizons

...and more, as I think to add it!

Big Warning:

I have both emetophobia and trypophobia. Please don't ever send me anything that would trigger either of those phobias. Swapping should not make me need to call my therapist.

Hello :-) Yeah, it's very dusgusting, but when you want to use the public restroom, you have to pay for it. That's why I try to combine it with visting a cafe or having a short trip to McDonalds, as it's free to use these. That's usually meant for their guests, but when it's crowded, they don't have a clue. ^^° Another thing that might be important, but water isn't free at the restaurant either. When I visited a friend in New Zealdn they've out a huge carafe of water in front of us and I was already feeling a little nervous by the assumed price of it. I really wish they would give free water, too, but when you order water, you usually pay for it, as it's mostly the carbonated one. For uncarbonated water you have to tell extra. ^^° Have a great trip! Maxi

Welcome back, Madam Not-N00b! Hopefully you didn’t omit this on purpose, but your old swap-not name was “December” in case any hosts want to sorta-kinda confirm your not-n00by-ness.

I feel useful. :oD
