Looking for VINTAGE HALLOWEEN or VINTAGE CHRISTMAS themed paper goods. My name is Missy. I am a wedding photographer. I started penpalling in February, 2020, and have found it a great way to make new friends. It's also been a fresh new way to fuel my creative side.
I just turned 50 and live in Illinois with my husband and 2 children. I grew up in northern Wisconsin and it is truly one of the prettiest places I have ever been (imo) :)
Favorite bug - luna moth
Favorite animal - Orangutan, ducks, whales, jellyfish, and polled herefords
Favorite flower - Dahlia and Peony
Favorite color - blue, olive, peony, and mustard
I tend to gravitate towards a lot of different styles, but nature and everyday life either vintage or not, makes me happy. I really like anything watercolor, clean and modern, torn and vintage, quality stickers are cool, and I LOVE sending postage stamps. One of my favorite parts of sending a letter is choosing the stamp to put on it. Call me odd.
Walking out to the mailbox to find a pretty letter in it is the best. Anyone else bummed when it's a national holiday and there's no mail?
Would like to hear your favorite thing about living where you live. Honest answer, not what you think I would like to hear. :)
Please note: My address is correct as is with the "W" in the postal code. A lot of people ask me about that. :)
Vintage (1980 or older) handwritten letters and envelopes
Vintage Ephemera of botanicals, bugs, animals, fish, and marine life.
beautiful, vintage stickers (2 inches and larger)
Modern, comtemporary art stickers, papers, and stamps.
Vintage or new UNUSED USA postage stamps
Pretty, vintage, or cool address labels
Heartfelt letters and notes.
Unusual or rare items I like - Polled hereford cattle (they have the white face and red body)
I am very punctual and I always try to send my swaps out early, before the deadline. If someone doesn't receive one of my swaps within 3 weeks after the deadline date, please let me know right away, before rating me for the swap. I will gladly send out a replacement. I used to say 2 weeks, but the mail has been sporadic lately.
Please be kind. Things happen in life. Reach out first if you feel something is not a 5 for any reason.
-Old, handwritten letters and ephemera (1970s or older)

I LOVE all teas, but mostly drink herbal. Fresh, new tea bags only please. However, if you only have black or green teas, that's 100% fine. There are other tea drinkers in the house. My favorite right now is Rooibos or "red bush" tea. My least favorite right now is Chamomile. I don't drink old tea and will toss it.
Currently collecting Pokemon cards for my son, so if you have any laying around.... even one is great.
