Thank you to all my amazing partners in the Christmas stocking stuffers and gift exchanges for 2023. I loved each and every item that I received!
4/15/2023 Major life update! My youngest son and his girlfriend gave me an early Mothers Day gift, a very sweet little golden retriever puppy named Dolly Rose. She is so precious! So I now have to get used to having a baby around the house for a while!
Hello! My name is Sharon, I've been married for 24 years and am the mom of 3 adult children, my youngest just turned 19 this past July. Born and raised in Florida..I haven’t traveled to very many places, so I love hearing about where you live! I have a few kitties that started out as feral litters that we rescued, and a handsome bearded dragon who is my daughter’s. I also now have a sweet Golden Retriever named Dolly Rose. I just love and adore all animals. I love taking pics and gardening, being out in nature. I have big beautiful Southern Live Oak trees surrounding my home, with a view of the Indian River which is a block away. I feel so blessed to have all this nature around me. I'm definitely an animal and nature lover. I love being out in the sunshine and fresh air. I am very spiritual in nature. I respect all beliefs and walks of life..I feel like we are all here to help each other through life, and make life a bit easier and happier for others.
I really get into and enjoy all the holidays! Spring is my favorite season. But Halloween and Fall are also my favorite time! I love Christmas but I don’t love cold weather...at all! Good thing I’m a Floridian where cold weather doesn’t show up too much lol!
I really enjoy decorating my home with vintage items and I put a little out for each and every holiday.
I love any and all history, I will read anything historical! I also love to read about paranormal and the metaphysical.
Some things I collect are
Vintage glassware all colors but especially cobalt blue
Vintage bowls and plates
Vintage sugar spoons
Salt and pepper shakers themed to holidays and vintage glass salt and pepper shakers
I am really into history, home decorating, antique shopping, thrifting, cooking, being out in nature, gardening, bird watching, photography, stargazing, and learning about other people and cultures. I hope to travel to Europe some day.
I believe in natural and alternative healing (along with traditional medicine)...and the power of prayer!
I also love jewelry, especially vintage or vintage style. Boho, artisan, handmade. Love dangle and hoop earrings...bracelets, rings. Also I am starting to collect brooches. Also jewelry made from crystals for healing. I have lots of different crystals but I also collect other things found in nature like cool rocks and shells. I also collect coffee mugs, though I have favorites I alternate what mugs I use depending on the season and holiday. And I love to drink coffee!
I love handmade mug rugs and potholders and change them out with the seasons.
Anything related to native Americans. Two of my great grandmothers were both Native American, (Seminole and Cherokee) and I am very interested in anything and everything relating to that.
Anything from the 1982 World’s fair in Knoxville Tennessee. We went there when I was 9 years old. Every summer my family would go to the Smoky and Blue Ridge mountains. I have so many happy memories of that! It helps me feel connected to my daddy who passed in 2007, he loved the smokies. So if you live in that area, anything, even a tourist map, I’d love!
If you have a cool story about the history of your area I'd love to hear it!
Any vintage items, home decor, ornaments, etc
I especially love small vintage glass bowls, I see them a lot in thrift stores for about $3-4. I love looking them up and learning about the maker and time period, etc. they’re so pretty and useful!
I’m starting to collect vintage salt and pepper shakers, and vintage items for all the different holidays
LOVE anything woodland. Trees, woodland animals..
Native American jewelry and crafts, beadwork
Vintage clocks. I love hearing the ticking of a clock. I don’t know why so many of the new ones they’re making now are silent. It’s very relaxing to me to hear a clock tick!
I love to shop antique malls and thrift stores! So if you spot anything you think I’d like, I don’t mind if it’s not brand new! I like things with a history and a story!

I really love everything! It's fun to get to know people and I love getting something that someone else enjoys with a story behind it....I love to connect with people.
If you live in a place where anything historical happened or a good story please share!!! I'd love any type of little newspaper clipping or tourist map, anything from your area you’d like to share!
I love any type of postcards, especially vintage or vintage reproductions! I also love tourist postcards from places you have visited or live. I'm happy with ANY though! I keep ALL of them and from time to time will go back and read them again.
I sometimes will frame postcards and hang above my writing desk and switch them out every so often.
