About Me

Hi, my name is Eleanor.

I have worked in the book business or in publishing for most of my life. My kids are all grown and out of the house, so I am enjoying the free time to focus on mindful journaling, writing, and creativity in general. My husband is a chef, an artist, and an award-winning barbecue pitmaster. On the weekends, we go “thrifting” for art supplies, books, boho odds-and-ends, and vintage items for our outdoor tiki bar.


-colors: orchid, lavender, violet, deep pink

-books, reading, libraries

-mindfulness and meditation


-afternoon tea

-writing and journaling


-Stickii or Pipsticks stickers

-British motorcycles

-stationery, note cards, postcards, and stickers with magical, book, or tea designs; blank coloring postcards for adults


My favorite genres are classic literature, science-fiction/fantasy, and personal growth/spirituality.

Best books of 2024:


  1. Hello, Habits: A Minimalist’s Guide to a Better Life by Fumio Sasaki

  2. Bookshops & Bonedust (Legends & Lattes Book 2) by Travis Baldree

  3. A Monk's Guide to a Clean House and Mind by Shoukei Matsumoto


  1. Ragnarok by A. S. Byatt

  2. Emily Wilde’s Map of the Otherlands by Heather Fawcett


  1. Spare by Prince Henry, Duke of Sussex

  2. Heal Your Living: The Joy of Mindfulness, Sustainability, Minimalism, and Wellness by Youheum Son

  3. Mary Ventura and the Ninth Kingdom: A Story by Sylvia Plath

  4. Infinity Gate by M. R. Carey

  5. The Fox Wife: A Novel by Yangsze Choo


  1. What You Are Looking For Is in the Library: A Novel by Michiko Aoyama

  2. The Book of Doors by Gareth Brown

  3. The Lost Bookshop by Evie Woods

Please Don't Send...

I appreciate each and every envelope I receive! If you are interested in a tailored list of things I would probably not use, here goes: I would prefer not to receive classroom reward stickers, Disney, things with artificial scents or cigarette smoke, free advertising postcards, tea/food, or religious things unless they are buddhist or pagan in nature (classical art depicting things like angels or madonnas is fine.) I respect the religious choices of others, but dislike proselytizing.

Please don’t feel you have to send me lots of extras. My space is limited so I prefer a few nice things over a jam-packed envelope.


If I find myself in the unfortunate position of sending a swap more than one or two days late, I will notify you. If, due to an unexpected emergency, I am unable to let you know that a swap will be late, I will contact you later and send the swap as soon as possible. I rate upon receipt of a swap and I don’t abuse the rating system. I hope my swap partners extend the same kindness and consideration to me.
