A creative playologist, Chakra Dancing and Laughter Yoga teacher by trade, I'm a lover of afternoon tea, feather fascinators, china tea-cups & all things vintage.
I adore anything to do with mythology: unicorns, faeries, angels, Goddess Isis and Ancient Egypt.
I love, love, love the opportunity to create small but lovely things whenever I find myself at home with quiet-time to myself!
I appreciate the simple things that make people smile and the long-forgotten art of letter-writing.
I love to travel and consider myself extremely blessed to have married my longtime (16 years) love in Florence, Italy in July 2018.
My favourite things to do are cloud-watching, reading, walking in the countryside, photography, keeping busy with my hands in creative pursuits and lifelong-learning. I also love to journal and write, and am instructor on KSurf in writing/journalling and Egyptian Mythology.
I collect Lladro Nao cherubs and anything to do with horses, unicorns, Peter Rabbit (Beatrix Potter), Laurel & Hardy, and the sea/beach/water. I always thrilled to be the recipient of anything to do with faeries, unicorns, nature, Egyptian mythology, books (love bookmarks) and coloured glass beads - I am a magpie for anything that sparkles!
Peacocks and hummingbirds were my 'totems' during breast cancer treatment in 2011/12 and they are still my favourite things to collect.
FAV COLOURS: I love bright colours to wear - cobalt blue, scarlet red, deep purple/indigo, etc. But for the home, I favour muted colours and creams/copper.
PLEASE NOTE: Here in England, snail mail moves at just that ... a snail's pace. I will get swaps turned around in lightening-quick time BUT I can't do anything about chivvying up the mail service here or abroad!
RATINGS: I always rate with a comment and gladly give hearts for something that makes me smile! I am saddened by some swappers who appear not to enter into the spirit of things; I will always receive and appreciate (with much happiness) anything which you have deemed worthy to send me big smiles and I don't rate in terms of your technical ability!
It was only a few years ago that I suddenly realised I had a spark of creativity in me - I am very much a learner-in-progress and for me, art is definitely about the joyful process. The outcome is irrelevant! I also love to create digital art.
