About Me

I live in northern California. Sadly my Norwegian Forrest cat, Claire, passed a couple of months ago. A big whole in my heart. I have a daughter and a 6 yr old granddaughter and great son-in-law who live in town with us. That gives me a lot of grandma time with Arabella.

I once lived in Naples, Italy, from age 15 -18 and loved it there. My senior trip was to the Isle of Capri......Beautiful, unforgettable!! I love all things Italian or European. I like USA country, homemade, handmade anything as well. I love all of the holidays. Especially Halloween & Christmas. I love spooky stuff. Vintage, Steampunk and mystical/magic stuff. I love original art especially on postcards, ACEOs, bookmarks, letter sets, journals and greeting cards. I love sewing. I am a coffee nut! No tea please. I love swapping and always try to send a package or envie according to the swap requirements and your profile. I truly love to get feedback that shows I have made someone's day. I always send out on time ( I must admit that as an original member all these years that I have been late a very few times but always kept communications with my partner going and things have worked out). I make every effort to rate immediately after receiving. I am only human and if you haven't received my package or if I have inadvertently not rated you, please pm me and I will set things right for you.

I am easy to please and I am happy with any items I receive in the mail. It is such a pleasure to reach into the mailbox and find something there.

I LOVE that art print of the moon, the cloud and the owl that you included in the mermaid package you sent me. I'm going to frame it for my six month old granddaughter. =)
