About Me

alt text

I'm a homeschooling mom of 4. Only one left at home and he's 13. We live on a small farm. I’m 53 as of May 2019 and some days I feel 14 .... others 90! I have a poodle that thinks she’s a Doberman. I have caught and neutered over 15 feral cats. They are outside and bask in the the sunshine of the porches or chase mice in the hayloft of the barn.

Favorite Music

All types of music are interesting to me. I was a teenager in the 80s-90s so I'm fond of pop/rock from that era. I like some bluegrass, older country, I enjoy listening to Japanese spa type 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 : 8/18/19: 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, 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.

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.

Current Obsession is kawaii stationary and letter swaps. I can't get enough of it. I do think it is spilling over into other areas of my life. I just finished painting my tiny office bubble gum pink! hahahahaa....

Things I like

I love Tea especially estate teas. My favorite being Darjeeling but after that just about any of the black teas, herbal teas and flavored. I also enjoy sharing starts from plants & seed trading. I currently have 42 different varieties of tomato seeds.
