About Me

I am easily amused and also pretty easy to please. I have a soft spot for animals, especially kittens. I love colors in pink, blue and purple ranges, especially together/combinations. I like reading witty, personal stuff. When I'm in the mood, I like to go to junk shops, thrift stores and yard sales to get things -- locally and on trips, too. I tend to lean left but try to stay open-minded. It does not bother me that my friends and I often have different opinions. I believe in live/let live as long as nobody's getting hurt. PLEASE: no glitter, thanks!

Comment: What a surprise to see that you were my partner for this swap!! 💛 I always love seeing your mail in my mail box!! The park sounds like an amazing place, I’m a sucker for waterfalls (just got home from a waterfall hiking adventure 10 mins ago even, maybe we need a waterfall SS swap, would be so hard for me to pick a photo though!!) I cannot believe all the amazing stamps you included with this swap, on the envelope and inside!! Such and awesome stamp rainbow to sort through! I really love the national parks block of four stamps on the envelope, and how your post office uses red ink instead of black to cancel stamps. Thank-you so much 🥰 And your hummingbird photo!! What a neat shot, it’s just hanging out patiently waiting to have its photo taken! The print looks so much like a painting. Thank-you for sharing all of the details around this photo with me 💕

Comment: 💛 💙 💜 WOW! What an unexpected, wonderful and generous surprise! You made my day, what an amazing package of gifts! Thank you so much, Lou. It's always so much fun to join your swaps. Thank you for hosting them. I really enjoyed going through the Biltmore House- so much history. There is an etching by Albrecht Durer hanging on one of the walls, the rhino. Durer is one of my favorite artists. Tons of hearts to you! 💛 💙 💜

Comment: What a bright happy envelope of happiness! Thank you for the beautiful flower photos, fabulous green washi and wonderful letter. Many years ago I visited the Como Zoo on a class field trip I think. It was long before I got into photography so no pictures from that trip, but I do have some from a visit to the Bachman's flower show. My favorite spot to shoot flowers there was always Munsinger Gardens in St. Cloud. I worked overnights in the area and would stop by the garden when I got off work early in the morning. It was so peaceful... the Mississippi flowing by... Sweet Minnesota memories! I'm loving these swaps, thank you so much for hosting. Oh! And the TN postage stamps - how cool! Thank you for a truly wonderful swap. It honestly made my day today. Happy swapping & be well.

Comment: Hello Lou ! Thank you so much for the 2 birds note card, with your so nice note and the 6 awesome washi samples! You're more than welcome, for my joining in this swap. I love these kind of swaps! Like where you live, it has been one heat wave after another. But also it's been one thunder storm after another as well and they've been very severe ones. Last week, we had one so bad, it knocked out the electric in the whole town of Canton, PA. and atop the mountain we live on. We were without electric for 2 1/2 days. Anyway, Sounds like your State fair will be fun and I'm sure it is. The Canton Fireman's fair was 2 weeks ago. But hubby & I didn't go. We haven't been to it in 10 yrs. Basically it's pretty boring. So, We go to the Chemung County fair in Horseheads, NY. It's about 54 minutes from here. But didn't go the last 2 yrs. due to Covid. So, it will be so wonderful to finally go again! Is so much fun at this fair! Well, I hope you & whoever you go with, to the State fair have a wonderful time!

Comment: Hi Lou! Always wonderful to have you as a partner and thank you for all the wonderful goodies! I can see how the movies would be more fun than the gym! LOL! Hasn't this weather been crazy?? We got to visit the Postal Museum several years ago in DC and loved it - hope you get to go soon! I am so hoping the new stain does not wind up closing everything down again - at least this time if it does, maybe folks will feel better prepared or not, sigh! Wishing you all the best and love the wonderful swaps you host! Hugs and Happy Swapping - p.s. Greta is awesome - she traveled with us last week and was a real trooper! Not sure how one small pup can take up so much room in my heart but she sure does! ;)

Comment: Lou...these cards are absolutely stunning! I love them..."all of them"...! I also enjoyed reading your note... When I saw the Tennessee stamp on the envelope I smiled. That's my home state you know. The USPS did not use a black sharpie this time...just the red cancel stamp that they have. Thanks once again for the generous and beautiful cards! Till our next partnership...

Comment: Oh My Goodness!! I LOVED everything you sent. What a day brightener your envelope was. Thank you so very much.I don't know where everyone gets such cute note cards; mine always seem so drab compared to the ones I receive in swaps! I plan to drop you a note soon. Thanks again! I love these swaps; hope you plan to host more of them.
