About Me

I'm in my 40s and live with my husband, parakeet, cockatiel and a fish tank of freshwater fish.

I'm slightly obsessed with parakeets/budgies. My parakeet Minion is blue - send me budgie/parakeet things and I will do a happy dance!

I also love cockatiels, especially the "lutino" (white and yellow) ones. My adorable cockatiel Sophie is very sassy!

The Weepies, Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson,

I also love indie pop, and 70s/80s "soft hits/Yacht Rock"

Postage Stamps

If you could use the following stamps on your letters/postcards OR include them in stamp swaps I would LOVE it. I collect these categories of postage stamps:

*Food/drink - including fruit, vegetables, coffee, wine, traditional foods, anything edible!

*Reading - books, reading

*Letters, stamps & mailboxes on stamps

*parakeets / budgies

*gems & mineral

*modern art

I also love stamps from Scandinavia, England, the Netherlands and Japan

My Obsessions

Reading! I've loved reading my whole life. I'm not too picky about books, but I tend to like character-driven books, post-apocalyptic (not sci fi), and non-fiction. Reading has been my favorite thing my entire life.

Birds! I love my pet birds, my patio is a wild bird haven,and I go on bird walks!

Genealogy! I'm obsessed! My people came from England, Ireland, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Embroidery & Crochet! I love making baby onesies, pillows, tea towels, throws and shawls!

Jewelry Making I've been making jewelry for about 13 years and I love it. Right now I'm into making mala necklaces, stretchy and wrap bracelets, and earrings!

Art! I love museums, abstract expressionism, Frank Gehry, Manet, Jackson Pollock, Rothko, still life paintings (especially by the "Dutch Masters"), Chihuly glass, Vermeer, Frank Lloyd Wright

History! I love the Tudor era, Queens (historical English royalty, esp Queen Victoria, Tudor Queens, Queen Charlotte, Marie Antoinette), old cemeteries, documentaries, the Gilded Age (Vanderbilts, Astors, etc)

Gardening! We just moved to the desert, so I've moved my gardening indoors! I'm obsessed with houseplants and succulents.

Travel! Fav places are: Oregon, Seattle, NYC, East coast leaf peeping, Japan, Paris, London, Italy, Napa, northern California, Costa Rica, New Orleans

Metaphysical I LOVE Tarot. I also love crystals, chakras, and other woo topics

Art I am learning digital art on Procreate, gouche and watercolor painting during quarentine
