About Me

Hello! My name is Adrian and I live in Asheville, North Carolina with my husband, son, little brown dog and a parakeet.

What to send me? Surprise me! Send me the card or postcard you haven't found a home for. Anything unusual or odd is great. Most of all I love the great variety of things in the world.

My favorite part of mail swaps is your message! Write me whatever is on your mind, but I especially love book recommendations.

Or tell me about your pets, or what you ate for dinner, or what you enjoy most - sending or receiving mail.

Favorite Books

I read a lot, and love getting recommendations of books to read. I read fiction and non-fiction, and will give anything a chance.

Some favorite authors are: John Irving, Winston Graham, Ann Patchett, Margaret Atwood, Mark Helprin, Neil Gaiman and Cormac McCarthy.

My favorite book from my childhood is A Wrinkle In Time.

I'm currently reading the Harry Potter series aloud to my son and husband, and we are on the final book. What should we read next?

Favorite Crafts

Knitting is something I always come back to, and lately I've been knitting scarves and hats for senior citizens in need.

Paper crafts are a current passion, especially junk journals and book making.

Is cooking a craft? Because I do love cooking experiments of all kinds and trying and perfecting new recipes.

Some Things I Like

Accordions, Atoms, Bananas, Cacti, Carnivorous Plants, Diagrams, Electricity, Fungi, Feathers, Ghosts, Hot Dogs, Ink Blots, Kites, Lemons, Libraries, Mailboxes, Nebulas, Ocean Liners, Orange Things, Pies, Peacocks, Rockets, Space, Stamps, Trains, Tanks, Volvos, Volcanoes, Waterfalls, Yo-Yos

Comment: Adrian, I love the postcard that isn't a postcard! I've heard of the Biltmore Estate from different friends who have visited it, but have never had a chance to go there myself. It's definitely on my bucket list though! I appreciate the stamps you chose to send it with as well - very appropriate! I wondered if Cedric is the name of the dog on the label; do you know? We used to have a big St. Bernard that lived in our neighborhood and it would come and visit when the kids were outside playing. It's name was Fred; Fred would let them climb all over him for a while and then, when he was tired of the game, he would get up, shake himself off, and go on his way. Your card reminded me of Fred, and it was a very nice memory! Thank you so much for sending such a nice card!!!
Response: The Biltmore Estate is definitely worth a visit. My family really enjoys our season passes. It's a great place to enjoy anytime. Yes, Cedric was George Vanderbilt's dog. I'm glad you enjoyed the card. I appreciate your kind words!

Comment: Thank you! I like your "use it up" motto! I need to try that. I'm also a bit of a hoarder when it comes to craft supplies.
