About Me

Hi! My name is Colleen and I love all things that come through the post (well, except bills!) but more than that, I love sending things too! I love to take that trip to the post office with all the letters and parcels, and I love knowing that someone in the next few days will come home to a parcel or letter on their doormat that will hopefully make the smile.

I'm 26 years old, I work full time, am a slave to two greyhounds and live in a teeny village in the English countryside.

Favorite Music

Mumford and Sons, Fleetwood Mac, Rusko, Caspa....my tastes are quite eclectic. I will listen to anything and everything, the catchier the better!

Favorite Books

Anything by Jasper Fforde or Terry Pratchett; I love fantasy and escapism but with those two authors their worlds are only a shiver away from our own, and I love them for that.

Favorite Movies

Currently Love and Other Drugs, and Django Unchained. I love too many films to really short list them though, but action films probably rank the highest for me.

Favorite Television

Sherlock! Yum. Also House, Pushing Daisies, Battlestar Galactica, and Boston Legal.

Dislikes

Tea and coffee - I don't drink them, I don't really drink hot drinks at all so wouldn't know what to do with them if I received them.

Please don't send food or candy at the moment, I'm on a very strict diet

That's about it really!

Favorite Crafts

I make jewellery; I buy, restore and occasionally sell vintage costume jewellery; I'm trying to teach myself how to sew and how to make bath and body products.

I'm also getting into smash booking; I have lots of ideas but not had the guts to start properly yet!

I have now officially become obsessed with crochet too...so many hobbies, so little time!

Likes

I love most things that have been chosen with thought and care. My favourite colours are blue and purple, but love anything bright and cheerful.

I love stationery, and pretty papers. I love love love trying out new pens, and prefer for write in black ink (makes me feel more grown up than blue!).

I collect postcards, but like it more when they have been written on!

My favourite scents are fruity ones, especially with lip balm and gloss :) I love bath bombs, scrubs and nice smelling soaps.

I would love to receive anything that I can use in my crafts, particularly ephemera and interesting paper bits from wherever you're from. I would squee with delight at receiving notebooks, nice quality yarn and patterned fabric too :)

Oh and my feet at UK size 7, and I loooove soft, fluffy socks and ones with cute patterns and pictures :)

Response: I am sorry, I did send this on the 28th (as you can see most of my partners have rated me for theirs) but it must have gotten lost in the post. I will resend by the end of the week (23rd). 23/11/2013 replacement postcard sent, with proof of posting. I hope this one makes it

Comment: Thanks for the postcard. I agree that Sandringham should be called an "Estate", not just a "House".

Comment: Thank you Colleen for your beautiful multiview postcard from Norfolk, England! Yes, I love the old-fashioned windmills as they remind me of the drawings by Rembrandt & paintings by the Impressionists. Those older windmills look more natural in a landscape.

Sorry the write back is so late, I have been travelling and writing my dissertation. It's finished now! Woop! I hope you got my little parcel I sent you a few weeks ago xx

HouseCatAntonia on Dec 17, 2013:

Aww baby, that would be fantastic. :'D It's crap when people flake. What swap did she flake on you for? I have just got back from Paris; bought some things for your letter! I will be writing some of it tonight. xx
