About Me

Hello,

I love horror, Gothic, Witchy, Victorian, Dark Academia, Cottagecore, Witchcore, Goblincore. All things birds, crows and owls are my favorites.

My hobbies are drinking tea, reading, learning, table top games (DND, Pathfinder, Starfinder), board games, and cooking for my friends and family.

I've always loved writing letters, mail, packages, paper goods, and pens, so I'm very excited to be able to use some of my collections. I get almost all of it second hand.

My entire life I've been a night owl. I've tried just about every craft out there and love to build little gifts for my friends and family. I'm known as the best gift giver. Insert humble brag. Honestly I just like making people happy.

Animals are awesome, but I am allergic to anything with fur :( That doesn't stop me from playing with yours. I have a pet tortoise named Noino.

I love tea! Looking forward to doing some tea swaps. Please no chamomile or cinnamon.

Personality Type - INTJ

Hogwarts House - Slytherin

Astrological Signs - Libra-Scorpio-Libra

Favorite Colors

Dark Green (Hunter Green) and Magenta. I know they don't look good together, but what can you do?

Gold/Mercury Glass/Oil Rubbed Bronze/ Brass

Black

Really anything, old, antiqued, or "classic"

Favorite Animals

Owls and Crows. Really any birds, although, I don't like them flying over me.

Frogs, they're just so cute and derpy.

Bees, Beatles, Butterflies, Moths, any bugs are fine, but please no maggots.

Snails

Favorite Things

Oh, Boy. Where to start?

Ever since I was little my grandmother and I would go "Sailing" She's responsible for my love of antiques.

I love anything related to luck. Even more so if you have a story behind it, something personal or a family/cultural/religious tradition.

  • Birds
  • Tea, Teacups, Tea Adjacent
  • Candlesticks, Candles, Candle Snuffers, Wick Trimmers
  • Letters, Letter Sets, Envelopes, Letter Openers, Stationery, Magnifying Glasses *Books
  • Flowers
  • Lace
  • Brass - (things?) I have a collection of little mirrors and some mini animals
  • Skeleton Keys
  • Mysticism
  • Fortune Telling/Teller Items

    Tasseomancy (tea leaves)

    Palmistry

  • Taxidermy (but not wet specimens)
  • Parano0o0o0o0ooomal
  • Cryptids (Fresno Nightcrawler, the bestest boy)
  • Bad movies
  • Gudetama
  • Pokemon - I like the ghost and psychic types best and the OG ghosty boys. Haunter is my all time fave, but also like Mimikyu (i have a small stuffed shiny one), Litwik, Sinistea, Polteageist, Abra, Kabadra, Alakazam, Klefki.
  • Décor -

    Victorian

    Hollywood Regency (Yes, I own THE MIRROR)

    Cottagecore/Witchcore/Goblincore

  • Cooking - I love collecting family recipes, that have a story with them and just bizarre vintage ones. If you have any family recipes you would like to share, please do. Also, any old cookbooks, recipes cards anything of that sort.

  • Decorating for the seasons/holidays

  • Random Facts - probably my most favorite thing ever. My family jokes that I'm a walking game show. Drop me your knowledge.

  • Anything with a dark sense of humor. I don't mind cursing or anything vulgar.

  • Super Store
  • Parks and Recreation (Better than The Office. Come at me!)
  • Really love a lot of adult animation, paranormal, and true crime

I do not watch reality TV (except for naked and afraid, it's so dumb. I'd watch it with my dad when he was in the hospital and it reminds me of him). Did not watch Game of thrones.

Things I Don't Like

Politics

Scriptures or Religious Preaching

Hate Speech

Cinnamon

Black Licorice

Anise

Chamomile

Pastels, Debby.

Please don't send any scraps of paper or things like that. I'm really bad at being creative and collaging things, but also hate to be wasteful so it will just end up in a death pile.

Problem With a Swap?

Please let me know if you don't get something, or it arrives damaged. I take pictures of everything, before I sent them out. I'm happy to remake something and show what was originally sent.

I just learned in my area my mail is still going through quarantine hold. Then gets shipped to Phoenix, and quarantined a second time... So please be patient if you haven't received something of mine.

Comment: Thank you for the quotes. My son told me about The Office and when I watched the first episode it was kind of weird to me. But then I went back to it a year or so later and have loved it ever since. Thank you for the extra stickers!
