I’m a proud cat mom.. My furry son Pancho just turned 16 this year and he’s my best furry buddy!
I have 2 adult daughters. Aged 30 and 18. My oldest has 2 little boys.I love being a mom and a “g-ma.” (Grandma)
I’m working on updating my profile (Oct 2019). Please pardon the dust. 😄
I love thrifting and going to yard sales. You never know what treasure you’ll find!
I love to take old furniture and give it new life. So satisfying.
I love to watch old house restorations, especially those done by the Property Brothers and Chip and Joanna Gaines.
As far as tea and other food related swaps, I have no food allergies, only aversions. I do not care for any tea with ginger, hibiscus, or orange. I cannot drink anything with grapefruit in it due to interaction with medication. Please send only bagged, individually wrapped teas. Thank you.
I like Skittles and Heath bars. Strawberry ice cream. Peanut butter and raspberry jam on toast. I like hot cocoa. Yes, I have a sweet tooth but treat myself only once in a while.
I love postcards of any and all types. Especially black and white pcs of people, cars, and old bridges, etc. I always looking for blank postcards to use in swaps. I’d like them sent to me blank in an envelope whenever the swap allows. If you can’t send it that way, written on and stamped is fine.
I love to crochet but don’t get to do a lot of it anymore due to arthritis... If my writing looks messy please know it wasn’t because I was rushing to write.
My favorite colors are black/charcoal gray, navy blue, kelly green, and most earth/jewel tones. Not one much for pastels but if that’s all you have, I’m fine with it!
I collect stickers, note cards, and really like glitter!
I like to collect stamps although my stamp collection was lost several years ago when I moved. I’d appreciate vintage/unused/foreign stamps!
I love to send Christmas Cards! I’ve been saving them for the last several years for my kids to look through one day.
I collect gel pens and sharpies. I’m not much of an artist, however. I try. I do appreciate fine art, however.
I’m not “that” old (lol) but I’ve been called an “old soul”. I live simply and practice some of the old school ways in daily life. Soap making is one of my favorites! I’ve also made candles, wax melts, chapsticks, etc. homemade is better!
I love classical music (esp. Bach) and Tchaikovsky. However, I am open to listening to just about any kind of music except gospel.
I am agnostic but I don’t mind receiving religious items.
I’m a huge Little House on The Prairie fan and also The Walton’s. I like some reality TV but not ones about dating, etc.
I love books! Especially books from Oprah’s book club, and historical fiction.
I prefer not to discuss politics.
I love the ocean and have lived by it my entire life.
I am a redhead and a Virgo and what a combination, my husband says.
I adore self-studying the Edwardian and Victorian eras.
In my home I would say my style is a cross between rustic farmhouse and industrial. I don't follow fads or trends, I do what makes me happy. I love hydrangeas and cabbage roses. Peonies as well.
My youngest daughter and I both love cars. We love to go to car shows together. In the past I worked for Ford and Chevrolet dealerships in the parts dept. I can tell you the make and model of any car you see on the street.
My daughter loves cars just as much as I do and can tell you all about foreign exotic supercars, some you've never heard of.
I'm not hard to please as long as what you send me is genuine and done with care.
I rate all swaps and hope you’ll do the same.
