About Me

My name is Julie Happy and I live in Jacksonville, Florida.

My last name is Happy, and I am! But, I cry on everything! music, movies, cartoons and even McDonalds commercials. ( just ask my friends who dare go see a movie with me and my towel )

Married to Mr. Happy ;) We own a boring composites business, but sleeping with the boss has its perks!

I love living in Florida and so I love vintage Florida anything, especially things about Weeki Wachee Springs and the Weeki Wachee mermaids,Silver Springs and Johnny Weismueller as Tarzan.

I love southern food ( not exclusively ) grits and greens and country fried steak, yum yum so I can't eat it often!

I cook like a pro, try new recipes weekly.

Favorite Music

Israel Kamakawiwoʻole, UB40 and Ska , Phantom of the Opera,Gypsy Kings, aboriginal music. PANDORA!

Favorite Books

Jane Eyre is my favorite book ever! abridged ,unabridged love them all

I also loved the Notebook and The First Ladies Detective Agency and Chocolat.

I read all of the Harry Potters and loved all of them and the movies. Best bonding with my kids ever as they all 3 loved them . Where the crawfish sing!!! great

Favorite Movies

The Whale Rider is probably my favorite movie. If you have not seen this movie, stop, find it and be amazed. There is a reason Keisha Castle-Hughes was nominated for an Oscar!

Lagaan, Chocolat, Jane Eyre ( with William Hurt ) Rabbit Proof Fence, Full Monty, Something New ( my movie I watch to cheer me up when I rarely need it ), Beauty Shop, all the Harry Potters!

Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

2021 THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON is amazing! weird name but the reason for the name will become clear. so so so good! and Shia Labouf is so awesome and so is Zak. I am obsessed with this movie because it is SO GOOD. If you don't see it

Favorite Television

not a ton of tv, but I love Cooking shows.

Favorite Crafts

collage ATC's , that sadly is it. Can't draw, can't paint, can't sew, really can't do things like crochet or knit! I really wish I had skills, I have lots of ideas but just can't make them come to fruition, but I will keep on trying. I also make hand made soap because I am a soap snob.

I have 8 acres with a ridiculous amount of weeds with some really cool plants stuck here and there. My two favorite plants are a Banana Magnolia that smells like banana pudding and my lemon grass. I grow a ton of herbs! Regular ones and kind of exotic ones. I have turmeric and cardamom. When I harvest my herbs I let then dry then I crush them up cut squares of cheese cloth and wrap the herbs up in a ball shape and tie them shut. I give them away, they are for tossing in with cooking things like soups or stews for seasoning then you just pull out the ball before serving. ,

About Me

my husband took me to Australia and it was simply wonderful.... we went to the outback, alice springs, brisbane, great barrier reef! I rode a camel, hugged a roo and swam in the reef.

also got to go to New Zealand. Wow! In two weeks we went from the top to the bottom! It is a pretty and amazing country. Very beautiful! Saw and ate many new things! Went to a maori hangi ( feast ) so fun! Food was cooked under ground in a pit. Discovered Pavlova. Yummy.

2018 went to Alaska. Went charter fishing for halibut, rode in a bush plane around glaciers, Went up to Danali.

Spent Christmas in 2019 in Finland. wow! Learned new things like Finnish traditions at Christmas

pet peeves

The only thing I dislike is mean spirited people,people who try to intimidate you with religion or anything and shove it down your throat, anything political and above all any kind of prejudice ! No prejudice against any religion , race, orientation


I hate to be picky and petty so I won't be too picky however I will say I am not into cutesy things, no goth no religious please. I guess I really love vintage and romantic!

i collect what????


I love spices and have a collection of flavored salts. I

Comment: Very funny, but did you know that back in the day the "colored" bathrooms where just that, a board out behind the building with holes. I read that in a book recently. Funny card, but said about real history.

willap rated for Non-Artist Vintage ATC Swap on May 8, 2013
Comment: I love the birds on both of the cards. The vintage is very pretty. I am learning a lot about this ATC thing also. The extra goodies are very nice and I am sure there will be a swap that will fit these. We have a pair of Grosbeak's that have been coming to our water supply for birds. They are so pretty. We don't see those that often in TN. Have a happy day.
Response: thank you for your nice comments! Hope we are in another swap together!

Comment: I love the bathroom story. It reminded me of a Jackass episode where he did go to a home improvement store and "test" the display toilets. You made me crack up!

I really liked Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. That and the Crawdads book were probably my top 2 favorite reads of 2020 😊

CluckRN on Feb 2, 2021:

I'm excited that find out the word that makes you laugh! 😂 Funny because we have a bird sanctuary across the street, what are the chances?! I saw a snowy owl for the first time the other day and it was so magical. Although I am jealous that you have flowers that smell like banana pudding. The only thing we have are carrot-scented flowers. Not as fun. Did you end up finishing the Crawdads book? The ending was quite something. I didn't know about the movie, that will be great!

Just had to comment about Silver Springs...I went there when I was like 8! The glass bottom boat was awesome, and kinda scary lol... I lived in Palm Bay, FL for a few of my childhood years. :)
