About Me

July 8th, 2020•••••• Taking a break for awhile •••••••

WELCOME! Thank you for stopping by to meet me.

I’m a middle aged 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-90s 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 : 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.


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.

Comment: Thank you so much for the washi sample! Your remembered how much I loved the little lime one. <3 Camping sucks. There, I said it. I didn't like sleeping on the ground as a kid. Anyways, yea I noticed that as campers aged they bought RVs. Hehe. The tear drop ones look pretty cool and can be towed behind a car. I have wanted to go on a social distancing staycation. I would like to drive to a bigger city, shop and then go home. Then I think about actually doing that and stay home. Just going for a drive does sound nice though.
Comment: Thank you so much for your very pretty letter! I love this ME stationery! The stickers are so Kawaii. How did the garden fair after the flooding? Hopefully it just grows faster! I will have to check out Violet Stickers. Thank you for the hugs! More virtual hugs back to you!
Comment: thanks for the extra stickers
Comment: Thank you for the nice letter and the tuck ins. I love the stationery :^)

Comment: The lime kawaii food washi tape that you used to close the envie is just so cute! Thankfully no tornado storms here but we do get high winds from time to time. We also get earthquakes but I find myself having more anxiety if I haven't felt one in a while. Oh I love fresh tomatoes too! Thank you so much for your sweet letter. <3
Response: I’m glad you enjoyed it. That lime washi is new. I got it from the Etsy seller (widow) goatgirlgoodies ( also on Instagram). Earthquakes? Eeeekkkkgads! 😳 I’m on a camping trip. So, I best get off my phone LOL ❤️
