I like Christmas crafts, snowmen, & Santas. I'm learning to do embroidery (better) and I am going to take a class to learn how to crochet. (Should have listened to my mother!) I used to do a lot of scrapbooking but I found that I didn't have a lot of photographs besides cat and dog pictures so I have a lot of scrapbooking supplies that I'm using up to make other stuff. I'm also into black cats and Westies! I like doing stuff in photoshop like blog graphics and stuff, too. :)
I'm a blogger and a crafter and a swapper and, and a horder, and...LOL
I'm 35 years old and I live in the San Francisco bay area. I'm married with 2 dogs and 2 cats.
I grew up in Kentucky but I've moved all over since leaving that one-horse town. But truthfully, I sort of miss it.
I like classical music, rock music, dance music, techno. I just like music!
Notsomuch into hard metal or country music.
Titanic, Gone With the Wind, Forrest Gump. Those are my favorite ones (currently.) I love, love, love musicals and 50's and 60's films like Breakfast at Tiffany's and Auntie Mame and pretty much any Doris Day film. swoon
I don't really find that I watch much television. Oh I'll watch some shows on BBC America. I like the antique shows because someday I'd like to afford some antiques!
I like pink and greens. And oranges and greens.
My living room and dining room are done in "vintage" furnishings. You know, things that will be antiques in a few years but aren't quite there yet. We like to call it "Early Attic" design. LOL Quality woods but still classified as used furniture. LOL The rugs are wine colored floral wool rugs. The drapes in there are a deep burgundy.
My family room and kitchen decor is light and airy. I recently remodeled and I put down maple floors and had maple cabinets installed. Sand colored Corian for the countertops. I use mostly pale greens and golds in that room to keep it from being a cave.
My bathroom is done in a celery green paint with white mouldings, light cherry cabinets and dark green marble. It is by far my most favorite room in the house.
The office is done in khaki with some vintage palm tree prints done in browns, golds and burgundy. The flooring in there is light beige carpeting.
My bedroom is a mish-mash. Obviously I've not even started in there by the looks of it. I can't quite decide on a paint color so it is done in patchwork right now until I find one that looks right. LOL
The guestroom is done (partly) in a shabby chic style since my husband won't allow it in our bedroom. LOL Pinks, blues, whites, pale yellow. Never, ever, ever bright yellow. Gosh that makes me blind just thinking about it.
I love baking! I'm not a big fan of eating bakery items, but I like to bake.
I love deep, dark chocolate.
I drink a lot of iced tea.
I love cheeses. We went on a cheese tour recently because just north of here is the Napa Valley where there are lots of Happy Cows making happy cheese which made me quite, quite happy! :D
I love peanut butter cookies and thick, chewy chocolate chip cookies. Gah.
Candles--especially gingerbread, chocolate, bakery scents.
Cupcakes and cute cake things.
Crafting supplies like ribbons, rubber stamping stuff (I'm just getting started!) and embellishments for cardmaking.
Gel ink pens! Love! Glittery ones are even better. :D
Nail Polishes and Nail Embellishments.
Pet things--I have a Westie puppy, a beagle, and 2 cats.
Cute, decorative Boxes
Vintage & Cute Aprons
Hearts and the word Love (my last name is Love.)
Retro household decor stuff.
Crisp linen things like tea towels and napkins and stuff.
Shabby chic stuff.
Mary Engelbreit. ZOMG I love!
Clothes for my little Westie girl. She wears a size Medium and she loves wearing dresses and sweaters. I have yet to put her in booties though...but I will if I find some! LOL
More scrapbooking stuff. Really. I have enough. Have I stressed that enough? LOL
Angels because I find them creepy.
Incense makes me cough.
NO BANANA. Allergic and it is too bad because I love banana flavored things. :(
I'm allergic to most metals so jewelry items are out.
Plastic tat drives me nutso.
I'm not into teddy bears or plushie animals unless they're like kitschy.
