WELCOME! Thank you for stopping by to meet me.

Mimosagirl ...my Swapbot id has a connection to a tree planted in my yard. It was a gift by one of my sons who saved a small twig from the trash heap of a greenhouse/nursery he was working at when he was a teenager. He is now 34 and the tree is huge.

I’m a 55 yr old stay at home mom. I have a young son that I homeschool. For fun he and I play Pokémon, Minecraft, Animal Crossing New Horizons, chess, backgammon and go on adventures through our land or sometimes museums. He keeps me young 😃

I love gardening, history, art, Japanese gardens, spelunking through caves, and just about anything that I can get my body to agree with. I have good days and not so good. I’m not sure what I have other than really achy bones. I started upping my vitamins and water so I’m hoping that helps. It’s depressing to be in pain most of the time.

All types of music are interesting to me. I was a teenager in the 80s so I'm fond of pop/rock from that era. I like some bluegrass, older country, I enjoy listening to Japanese music, a little Kpop occasionally, and often spend my early morning time tuned into 1940's UK radio on the web.

Speaking of 1940's, I am a huge fan of vintage (1930-1950) postcards, womens handkerchiefs, vintage style fashion, brooches, playing cards, food tins, Christmas decor, and just about anything from that era.

Favorite Books

True stories about history and events. Currently reading :

8/5/23 : Stories and Recipes from The Great Depression by Janet Van Amber Paske

9/23/20: Reading our Rural Missouri Magazine. You can access it on their website. Great recipes.

9/2/20 : I was given a stack of paper crafting magazines so I am enjoying those right now and watching tons of DIY youtube videos. With current events I can't get into a book it seems. I have a hard time staying focused and remembering what I have read. So....I try to just keep busy.

2/2020: Enjoying my sons Cricket magazine sub. 8/18/19: A Gathering of Days

8/6/19: Hero on a Bicycle - about a boy in Italy during the Nazi occupation.

I have all the Boxcar Children books and Hardy Boys, Stories about life during 1940's world wide, Survival Books, Gardening, Stamp collecting, Herbal, Word Search puzzle mags, & I have enjoyed reading many of Barbara Kingsolver books. My favorite being Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. As a child The Childcraft books by World Book were treasures.

Favorite Movies

Ponyo, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service.... Sarah Plain and Tall, Anne of Avonlea , Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Seal Morning, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings , The Hobbit, The Last Unicorn, Little House on the Prarie, The Princess Bride.... Star Wars,....

Favorite Television

Sanford and Son, Sesame Street, Andy Griffith, Dark Shadows, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, But I don't actually watch TV anymore. Occasionally I will watch something on NetFlix with my son like Wild China or other nature or science program.


and sometimes BBC shows... Home Front, Land Girls, Wartime Kitchen, Foyle's War Currently watching Netflix episodes of Father Brown...funny and suspenseful.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy paper crafts like card making, Scherenshnitte, miniature book making, ATC,& now into making Memorydex Cards.

Memorydex swap information: I store my MEMORYDEX Cards in a tray/box system. So they can be tall but not much hanging over the sides. Thank you for considering this when swapping with me.


Vintage ladies pattern envelopes, pretty/interesting playing cards, pressed coins, foreign currency, tea envelopes, matchbooks, vintage postcards, paper fans, old automotive advertising and fueling station promo, Hello Kitty, Strawberry Shortcake, Holly Hobby, Barbie, Anything from Japan, Russia, Germany, Sweden, Ukraine, Canada, ...... Anything 4-H related, cute letter stationary, small cute envelopes, .... just about anything 😁

Junk Journals are a favorite. The lacy, ribbon filled, lots of pockets and tuck spots, made from an old hard back book....I'm working on one for myself that is very girlie, with lots of lace, shades of pink/rose and ecru white. Vintage slightly creepy.

Thank you for the September WW! I love the Halloween card and the Halloween stickers. I hope you get your remodel done soon. Remodels are the worst! To answer your question on the comment you left on my profile last month (sorry, I'm so forgetful): I've been making a little bit of everything for Halloween. Without going into specifics (b/c most of the stuff is for swaps that haven't been received yet), I've made plushies, embroidery, and jewelry. I can tell you that I made a life-sized cauldron out of fleece fabric. I don't know how to use a sewing machine, so it is completely hand sewn. It only took me three days to sew it. It looks awesome and is sitting on our hearth. Oh yeah and I made some Halloween themed felt cakes and found little cake stands at the Dollar General to put them on. Those are super fun to make. I've been busy!

BusyB on Aug 19, 2023:

Thank you so much for the vintage stationary papers! Love these for my journals but I will keep one for writing and one for my journal making. Received yesterday. August WW :) P.S. Do you like color lace?

tcornell on Aug 17, 2023:

Thank you for the Kawaii letter sets that you sent me for Aug WW, love them!!!

LadyJo on Aug 12, 2023:

One day I'll see the Northern Lights... I am having a hard time convincing the hubby to freeze in order to do so...and I'm the one who hates the cold, LOL! Thank you so so much for the adorable animal sticker book and a Starbucks card!!! omg! Thank you tons and tons for your kindness - it is certainly appreciated and I am so very grateful!

Thank you for the WW April wishes. The postcards are awesome and I can't wait to plant the African marigolds. I will let you know how tall they grow. They will be beautiful

susieq11 on Apr 17, 2023:

Thank you for all the fabulous postcards for WW April! Just arrived today! Yes, they are more than acceptable - they are amazing!! Thank you for sharing so many with me! We just had a bunch of hail and it's cold...I guess April can never make up its mind though! We go to FL this summer, our usual trip. I need to go to California at some point too. We don't travel much in the summer otherwise. I hope you get the car situation sorted out...never fun! Good luck and thank you again! xoxo
