About Me

Hello, my name is Shiralee, I'm a 45 year old single gal caring for both elderly parents. While I am doing that I am working towards creating for my 'one day home'. I love to sew, cook, garden, paint, draw, and do all sorts of scrapbooking. I'm a pagan, catholic, hippy, who aspires to live a simple life. I enjoy open minded people who like long letters. That's it from me. You can learn more about my life via my blog at Vintagepapery. Love, Shiralee.

Favorite Music

I love anything from big band music, the 50's, 60's, 70's. With a smattering of 80's and 90's. I even enjoy heavy metal, guns and roses to symphonic heavy metal bands like Epica, Nightwish, Kamelot, Within Temptation.

Favorite Books

I love to read a lot of historical books, how to books and any books relating to vampires, faeries, and the like.

Favorite Movies

Some movies I did enjoy were: Maggie. Mad Max: Fury road. Up.

Favorite Television

I liked Penny Dreadful, I don't think they are producing any more seasons. And recently caught up on all the of the latest Walking Dead.

Favorite Crafts

Somethings I do regularly: Paper Craft Painting Drawing Patchwork Embroidery Pressing flowers Drying flowers for potpourri

I particularly love crazy quilting.

I like:

I thought I should also add in a few of my favourite things:

I like the colour blue. More the old fashioned blues, like country blue and primitive country blue.

I love owls

I love butterflies

I love flowers, particularly the cottage types.

I like old fashioned tea cups

Old buttons


Vintage photographs

Country scenes, of barns, quilts, mason jars, flowers. Always flowers.

My favourite flower is Lavender and I also like the scent.

My favourite seasons are Autumn and Winter

My style changes but I always return to a cottage, country, preference. I like bright things, particularly reminisce of the depression era colours. I'm not adverse to cute modern Kawaii as I can also send them in other letters.

I drink tea, and like herbal tea.

I like country style. I like cottage Victorian style, I like the 1800's pioneer style, I like the 1940's style. In a nut shell, Granny shabby.

Mostly, I am very easily pleased and appreciate anything anyone sends as I know they put their time and care in to their letters. That's all that matters to me.

Hello I hound this verse while reading. It stood out.

Joshua 1:9New International Version (NIV)

9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Hope you enjoyed

Judges ch13 v 24

The women gave birth to a son and named him Samson. The child grew and the Lord blessed him.

Samson grew up to be a strong man, and shows us to be faithfull and God's love is strong.

with blessings Jennifer.

Joshua ch24 v 14

' Now then' Joshua continued.' Honor the Lord and sereve him sincerely and faithfully. Get rid of the God's your ancesters used to worship, in Mesopotamia and Egypy and serve only the Lord'.

This is one of my favourite verse in Joshua, it reminds us God is there for us.

  with Blessings jennifer.

My favorite Joshua verse is Joshua 1-9

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

This is where God assures Joshua and is definitely good for all of us to remember
