I love to read almost anything! I have a large collection of children's books that grows weekly. I also love cookbooks and scrapbooking books. I'm a fan of Oprah's Book club too!
P.S. I'm a literacy specialist so I can use all sorts of things related to reading & writing. I especially like things for my office and wearable publicity for literacy (t-shirts, pins, etc.)
My family is the most important thing to me. My husband is a cowboy and a firefighter/paramedic. He is also a fabulous campfire or grill cook and loves Civil War/Confederate books. We have one daughter, Emma, who starts second grade this fall. She loves glitter, pink, bling, Littlest Pet Shop toys, and girly things. I always appreciate nice things for my family.
I love candy! (but no sugar-free stuff--I'm allergic to aspertame, phenylanine, etc.) Chocolate is definitely this girl's best friend, especially if it has caramel too. I love to make cupcakes and decorate cakes! (I also like anything related to cupcakes or chocolate, like things decorated with them.) I love chicken recipes and mexican food too, especially salsa.
roses (especially the delicate pink ones)-
Cookie Cutters and baking things-
Cake Decorating Books-
blue and white combination-
funky aprons, or feminine ones-
quality black or red teas (especially fruity ones)
demitasse tea cups-
rhinestones and other glittery stuff-
lavender--the scent and the flower (A swap partner once sent an olive oil & lavender soap by Olivia that is divine, if you can find it)
fuzzy socks, especially if you make them but I love storebought too (but no wool, please)-
SLEEP and related things (soft music, eye mask, lavender pillow spray, etc.)-
Handmade things, especially sewing crafts-
unusual or interesting things from your area-
Sugar-free (allergies to aspertame, phynllanine, nutrasweet and such),
Green and Herbal Teas,
dark-spirited things (like goblins, swearing, gothic, etc.),
cheap junk (and I'll send nice packages too)

My kitchen is decorated in vintage fruit. The colors are muted, somewhat faded. I love kitchen things--dishcloths, cookie cutters, gadgets, small framed art, etc. I also enjoy vintage prints of all kinds.
My bedroom is very traditional in cherry wood with blue and white linens and accessories. I especially love blue toile prints or white pillowcases with some type of trim like lace or embroidery.
My daughter's room is light pink and purple with Disney Princesses. She loves things with her name on them.
The rest of my house is hodge-podge, basic khaki. I appreciate that it is a place to relax and so I love cozy throw blankets, candles, and things that make it feel homey. Oh, I love to decorate for Christmas and Easter.
