About Me

I love cats, gardening, books, audio books, country living, mountains, making candles, making jewelry, baking, kombucha, tea, pfaltsgraff Yorktowne pottery, reading, shopping, antiques, stationery, golden retrievers, quilts, painting pottery, Etsy, crafts, cloth tote bags, anything British, dark roasted coffee with loads of cream, even darker humor, Doctor Who, Mumford & Sons, Dave Matthews, shabby chic, Harry Potter, incense, naps :), etc.

Always looking for new penpals who like to write long chatty letters.

I work at the public library in Johnstown PA. I also do facepainting and balloon animals at birthday parties.

46 year old divorced mom of 1 Pen palling/swapping for over 35 years

From reading other profiles, i think i should add to mine! I'm going to do something i saw someone else do, the ABC's of me. Something i like starting with each letter of the alphabet.

A - animals. I have a LOT of pets. 2 dogs, 6 cats. Good thing i live in a rambling 100 year old house and have plenty of sun porches!

B - books. I am an avid reader and love everything about books. To open a new book is like opening a door to a new world, new lives, new points of view.

C - coffee. Love the stuff. A cup of hot coffee with sugar and cream soothes the soul.

D - driving. I love getting in the car on a sunny day with no destination in mind, getting lost and seeing what cool restaurants and stores i can discover.

E - envelopes! Decorated, handmade, stickered, pretty writing. A plain envelope is a missed opportunity.

F - flea markets. I love to look at other people's junk! Finding the diamond in the rough.

G - gardening. I plant about 30 planters with flowers and have a small vegetable garden every year.

H - home. There's no where I'd rather be.

I - ink pens, glitter and gel, scented, and bic bold

J - jewelry, I love sparkly old brooches to craft with.

K - kitschy. Love vintage stationery, especially 80's. I just love anything really old and unique.

L - London, but really just anything England. I'm obsessed with the whole history, culture, and accent. I Love watching the BBC, doctor who, how clean is your house, red dwarf, the IT crowd, Sherlock, and so many more.

M - mail! I'm so not picky! Huge, long, chatty, steam of consciousness letters. Fat mail, skinny mail, I appreciate when anyone puts a little time in to creating something pretty or unique.

N - Neil Gaiman, he's my favorite author and person. He even signed a library card from my library and sent it back to me with pictures!

O - ocean. I used to live in Florida and North Carolina and I miss living near the beach.

P - pizza. Is there such a thing as a bad pizza? I like them all. NY, Chicago deep dish, flat and crispy, white or red, i love pizza.

Q - quilts. Not the making of, i don't have the patience or precision for that! I just like buying them, looking at them, crafting with old ones, etc.

R - resting. I live for naps!

S - stained glass. Again, not to make but to buy and look at. I have several stained glass lamps that i treasure. I love sun catchers too.

T - tea. I love tea and tisanes. Love pretty much every tea except for green tea.

U - useless trivia. Surprise me with some weird bit of knowledge.

V - vampires. Love a good dark and seductive vampire book or movie.

W - winter. I love how cozy a season it is. Watching the snow fall outside while you're in your cozy warm house is relaxing, cozy, and comforting.

X - skipping this one Y - Yankee candles. I admit it, I hoard candles. I love burning them, buying them, smelling them, making them.

Z - zombies. My absolute favorite monster, i live for a good zombie book! There was a year where i read nothing but zombie books. Movies and tv shows are good too, but zombie books rule.

Comment: Sorry I took so long to rate. I just reread your note.It sounds like you have an interestiong job. Over this hot summer I have been reading several Several different series. Mostly young adult, sci-fi or sword and sorcery. I get them from Amazon mostly box sets at a super low price. For me they are light reading just something to do when I can't or don't want to go out.
Comment: Wow Nicole! Thank you so much for all of the beautiful postcards! Many hearts for that! ♥️♥️ I love the kitty in the catnip. We have that happen a lot around here! Oh and the envelope is stunning! Thank you again. Happy swapping! 🙂

Comment: Wow Nicole. I absolutely love the cat postcards you sent plus the extra cat PC's too. I adore the cat sticker with the cat inside the mail box and the other cat jumping on top as he sees the movement. So typical! My favorite is the cat in a suit. Love it!! Thank you for such nice happy mail. ♥️😽😺
