I hope my profile gives you a bit of an idea about me as a person.

My Sweetheart and I married on Valentine's Day, 42 years ago. We have two awesome adult children, the best daughter-in-law and Stella our grandpuppy a Dachshund Beagle mix.

I am a Christian, a non smoker, a native Texan native to Dallas, a gardener, over the years our yard has become very shaded, but it seems Morning Glories and wildflowers thrive in all conditions making them my favorites. I've never experienced boredom, my house is never clean and I don't have time to cook.

I'm a thrift store shopper, and trash day curbside junky. I enjoy repurposing, altering and reusing everything.

I enjoy watching nature from a comfortable perch like from a park bench, picnic table, lawn chair, tree swing or front porch glider.

I always get my swaps out on time. I try to rate swaps the day they were received PLEASE, if you don't receive a swap from me send me a message or email so we can try to figure out what happened.

Favorite Music

I like a lot of different styles of music, but my favorites are oldies, classical, country and show tones.

Favorite Movies

I haven't been to the movie theater in years, but If the old classics were being shown, I'd be there frequently.

Favorite Television

Most of my TV programs are recorded allowing me to binge watch programs back to back. I like a wide variety, except politics, I like silly stuff that makes me laugh, history, science, survival, nature, DIY, the bazaar, TV classics, old westerns, kiddy programs, girly flicks and reality TV.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy setting at the window writing to my pen pals while watching backyard nature, birds, raccoon, possum, coyote. I love anything related to letter writing, stationery, stickers, washi tape, handmade envelopes, pretty letter sets.

I like to make cards, post cards and envelopes.

I have a passion for sewing both clothes and home decor. I especially enjoy sewing spring/summer decorations.

It's rewarding to turn discarded stuff into pretty treasures. To update old furniture, upcycle and remodel, reupholster. To make something from nothing, reuse, repurpose, reinvent.


Spring and summer are my favorite seasons, Easter is my favorite holiday. Washi tape, I'm in love with washi tape, how did we live without it. I like all colors and themes, but birds delight me the most and samples with words on it. I have a passion for tiny envelopes. Bible verses, quotes and sayings on stickers or pretty cards make me smile.

I love pocket letters and the small pieces that fill them.

Postcards of all sorts, lighthouses and castles fascinate me.

Unused vintage postage stamps are always lovely and add a touch of nostalgia and romance to my letters.

I like embellishments and paper of all sorts. I adore old stuff, vintage and retro and anything that can be used on my colleges and altered art.

I always welcome flower seeds and seed packets.


Random things that make me happy:

Anything related to letter writing, stickers, note cards, handmade envelopes, stationery. Postcards, pocket letters, tiny envelopes.

Whimsical, funny and motivational sayings and quotes and words printed on pretty paper and cards.

My favorite themes are happy bright colors, spring/summer, birds, flowers, butterflies, owls, cats, dogs, vintage, gardening, cute animals and much more.


My "dislikes" are few, my "likes" are many. I don't appreciate witchcraft, "the dark side", nudity, profanity, goth or gore, pictures of Christ, Halloween, skulls.

Hi Doskie, I absolutely loved reading all about you! I too am a thrift store junkie and a side of the road shopper. I love it. My husband is sweet and indulges me. Maybe he shouldn't so much. We are quickly running out of room for my treasures. Be careful with those coyotes!
