About Me

I'm Emilia, a 29-year-old book fairy with an old soul and a vintage heart. I live with my love & our two cats in an apartment filled with crafting supplies, books, postcards and tiny trinkets of all sorts.

I'm obsessed with vintage & cottagecore aesthetics and I'm drawn towards all things that make my life seem like I'm an actual grandma living inside a 20-something body. I enjoy quietness, cosiness & calmness and I'm a huge homebody. I could spend weeks & weeks just being at home, focusing on my craft/art projects, petting cats, reading books & writing letters. A quiet, simple life is what makes me happy.

If I ever happen to be seen in public, it will most likely be at a library, at an art museum or at a thrift shop looking for tiny treasures for my craft projects & home. I also enjoy going for quiet walks in nature & attending all sorts of cultural events (art, music, literature).

Creating art, crafting, writing letters and reading books are my dearest pastimes. I've graduated from art school & I'm currently working at a second-hand store focusing on vintage clothes & crafting supplies. I love working there & seeing all kinds of unique clothes every day!

I'm probably going to be thrilled about pretty much anything you send me, so feel free to take chances and surprise me - the list above only contains things that make me REALLY thrilled for sure c:

No thank you...

There are a few things, however, that I don't particularly enjoy receiving... Here's a short list of my dislikes:

๐Ÿ”ช disney, childlike illustrations

๐Ÿ”ช teas with fruits and/or chamomile

๐Ÿ”ช reward / childish stickers

๐Ÿ”ช items with strong scents (as they may trigger a migraine attack) - perfume samples

๐Ÿ”ช neon colors (see above)

๐Ÿ”ช sharks, spiders, insects

๐Ÿ”ช religious themes & holidays

P.S I usually don't respond to the ratings I've been given (unless the rating involves a question etc) but it always makes me so happy if people tell me that they like my sendings and/or if my letter made their day a bit more brighter ๐Ÿ’ So just know that even though I might not reply to your rating I'll always be sending gentle thoughts your way!

Comment: This is really beautiful Iโ€™m speechless. My words cannot convey how impressed and bowled over I feel. Thank you! This zine.. these booklets! I used to scour local bookstores for zines and had collections for years. Now our local bookstores donโ€™t have as many or I donโ€™t look as hard. But I just love all your art! Wow

Call up your best friend

It's Galentines day today!

Celebrate in style

LadyGuenevere on Feb 1, 2023:

Hello there! It's lovely to meet you! :)

Vintage lace daydreams, Simple days of roses pink- Aesthetic sublime.

It's quite late, that's true, My Profile Comment Swap From my world, to you

((I am so sorry this is very late! I've had some health issues slow down my swaps the last 10 days or so, but I very much enjoyed reading your profile! I also love vintage everything, from fashion to postcards, and I also suspect I'm an 80-year-old grandmother in a much younger body, particularly when I fall asleep at 11 PM by accident. :P ))

xoxo, Alayna <3

Spiky fairy teeth

Gnawing on yellowed pages

Art ate my homework
