About Me

New Message - June 21, 2017

I am doing much better. Doctor has released me to drive which I really missed. They discovered a cyst on my lower spine pressing against a nerve which was causing all the pain. Still have some back issues and headaches, but so much better. Your patience in not rating a negative scores was greatly appreciated. Look forward to swapping with all again. Linda


Hobbies I have a love for hobbies of all sorts of things to make them (ribbons, embelishments, buttons, etc), family, my daughter, anything Disney, my Westie Terrier - Maggie (she is in doggie heaven), my grandpuppies (German Shepherds bigger than me!), lighthouses, collecting (beanies, pezzes, ornaments, lighthouses, grandfather clocks) and shopping at Hallmark! Simple things I like to receive are: sugar free candy/chocolate, crafty things, homemade cards to send myself, trinkets.

I also am collecting postcards, love all kinds, but my favorites are maps and lighthouses. I have a map card from all 50 states, however, I found that there are more than one kind. I would love to get map postcards from other countries and cities. I also collect lighthouses. I have a small collection of vintage postcards (1980's, if you can call them vintage).

I also love Disney and touristy type postcards. .

I need maps from most foreign countries. I also would like to collect all Capitals

Unless the swap requires ad or homemade postcards, please do not send them since I do not collect them.

If the swap allows a preference on naked or in an envelope, I would prefer mine unwritten and in an envelope. Thanks in advance.

Favorite Books
