About Me

I have one dog, a cockapoo (cocker spaniel and a poodle) who is SUPPOSED to be no shedding. I am married to a wonderful man who can fix just about anything, and have two beautiful adult children who are really nice people. I enjoy: paper crafts, reading, writing, knitting, Masterpiece Theater, tea, hiking, kayaking, biking, cooking with fresh vegetables. Not in any particular order. smile.

I'm a fan of...

Art museums, museums in general, old houses, farmer's markets, thrift shopping.

Favorite Books

Good grief! There are so many: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, The Help, children's books, the Bible, Lovely Bones, the Lady Julia Gray series, Dance of the White Dog, anything by or about Jane Austin.

Favorite Movies

Period dramas, add in somethIng fun like The Avengers, and smaller budget, independent movies to mix it up.

Favorite Television

Currently watching: The Great British Baking Show, The Yorkshire Vet, something about DIY Chateau. Yes, it's all British sheep and country side, but there you have it - COVID era TV.

Favorite Crafts

Currently knitting a sweater! Yes, it's true - I'm going to attempt the impossible. I'm the slowest of slow knitters, so... I also like making smash journals and making cards.

Wish List...

Postcards: scenic countryside, art, vintage style, graphic lettering or design, buildings, anything from Europe

Postage stamps outside the U.S. Or unusual, unique U.S. Stamps

Anything related to nature, botanicals, vintage, historical, Medieval, dragons (think Lord of the Rings, Narnia), architecture, libraries, and books.

Colors: bright or deep colors over pastels.

Bookmarks, postcards, and notecards, especially if homemade!

Tea: Yes! I love to sample different types.

Washi tapes, stickers, labels are all lovely. No letter stickers please since I have a bunch that as of yet I haven't used up. What do you do with them all??

Business cards artists and yarn shops. They're miniature works of art!

Comment: Thank you. How is your garden doing now?
Response: You're welcome! The flowers look good, and the swiss chard has kicked in. Just waiting for those tomatoes (impatiently drumming the fingers).

Comment: Thank you for the cute card, extra and nice message. I hope you did get your walks in and cooking done. Although, I always find 'better' things to do. ;) Take care and thanks again!
Response: Still walking! Though largely because my husband comes along. Left to my own devices, I'd still be on the couch!

Comment: Thank you, Steph! I had a little trouble making out your handwriting, but I am not judging you--mine is TERRIBLE - I just hope that I got the full meaning of the poem! I also wanted to say that I fully understand your problem with constant revising. It's almost more tempting on the computer. Also I love, love, LOVE the violet stationery sheet you used! If you have any extras of that, I would be super interested in some kind of trade. Violets are my favorite flower. <3 Happy weekend!
Response: I'm SO embarrassed my handwriting was illegible! (Hanging my head in shame) I'm near the end of that pad of paper but will send you what I have :)

Thank you so much for the happy mail with the extra violet stationery! You are so sweet. :) Since there are 3 sheets and 2 envies, I think I might keep one sheet for some special project, like writing out a poem of mine to put in a journal, or something. TY for being so thoughtful! <3
