About Me

Please let me know if l have not posted a rating for you, or if you haven't received a swap from me. I strive for timeliness and attentiveness in sending and rating. Thank you 😊

I live in upstate South Carolina. I enjoy the mountains of NC and TN, and like to vacation at our Carolina beaches. I love to travel, and enjoy learning about the history & culture of the areas I visit. I enjoy birdwatching, and keep a feeder outside my kitchen window. Rabbits and opossums pass by sometimes, and the squirrels are plentiful. I call my backyard the Peaceable Kingdom, and all are welcome. In September 2017, I had to say goodbye to my 17 year old gray fluffy tabby cat when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He often watched as I worked on ATCs for swaps. I miss him, but will get another when the time is right.

Favorite Books

I enjoy reading, although I seem to have less time for it, usually only while I'm on vacation. I especially enjoy reading novels set in the South, in other locations I'm familiar with, or biographies/memoirs. Since I work as a counselor, I also spend time reading psychology-type nonfiction books for professional development. I buy most of my books at Goodwill or library book sales. I collect bookmarks, and especially like ones w/ philosophical or inspirational quotes. Little Golden Books are one of my nostalgic carryovers from childhood. I love the illustrations and happy endings.

Favorite Television

Mostly I like PBS, documentaries, or the reruns of I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, Carol Burnett, and The Golden Girls. My newest favorite is Grace & Frankie on Netflix.

Favorite Music

My favorite is James Taylor, especially his older classics; shag music (East coast beach music from the 60's and 70's), Native American flute music, Mannheim Steamroller (at Christmas). Some classical music is okay. Also like NPR, Enya, and Windham Hill-type instrumental music.

Crafts/Hobbies

I facilitate a creative arts group with my clients, so I am always on the lookout for new ideas. At home, I enjoy painting with acrylics, or clipping junk mail and magazine images for collage. I participate in an art challenge each summer using index cards as the substrate. They are inexpensive for sketching with colored pencils, acrylic painting, or collage. I've gathered a nice variety of postcards through my travels and Swapbot. I prefer to send/receive them "naked", as that's how PCs are intended. ATCs are great, and I have an interesting little collection going as well. I enjoy creative writing when I have time/inspiration. I like to browse at Goodwill or thrift stores for second hand "treasures" to repurpose or use in my art. I spend time on Pinterest for inspiration. Occasionally, I enjoy baking desserts to share.

Likes & Dislikes

Likes:

For postcard swaps: US national parks, historic places/landmarks, museums, old churches, retro or current touristy, 1960-1970s era motels, US state maps/flags, maritime/nautical, any vintage-style (reproductions are fine), Jetoy, Snoopy/Peanuts cartoons, anything medical-related. ** Specifically seeking: PC from the Mutter Museum in PA....Peanuts PC featuring Lucy in the psychiatrist's booth.

Spiral/swirl patterns (see my profile pic above), tartans/plaid.

Nature-oriented themes: sun, mountains, trees, birds, woodland animals, seashore, seashells, butterflies, etc.....

Favorite colors: Emerald/Christmas green, purples, teal/turquoise, and yellow.

Favorite flowers: orange/salmon colored roses and any color daisies.

Favorite season: Autumn... I like leaves, pumpkins, and the rustic harvest style that's popular in the fall.

Collect: snowmen, Disney's Cinderella.

Dislike/Not Interested:

** I've listed few dislikes, as I've rarely been disappointed with the swaps I receive. I just think it's exciting that happy mail arrives in my mailbox from around the world!

These things don't really appeal to me, just so you know...

Anime (or similar style animated characters), horror or gory images. I don't really keep up w/ pop culture, especially the Hollywood "drama"/ gossip stories. No political, awareness, or causes-unless it's the theme of the swap.

Comment: Thank you for the wonderful Chimney Rock postcard. We visited here a few years ago on one of our road trips. It was right before we drove part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I climbed all of the stairs to the peak and was so proud of myself for doing so.
Response: Glad you received the PC, and thanks for the heart 😊 . Chimney Rock is quite a feat to climb!
