About Me

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!

Favorite Crafts

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.

Favorite Movies

Wizard of Oz, Ice Age, Contact, Dangerous Liaisons, City of Angels

Favorite Television

NCIS, Mr Selfridge, Outlander, Once Upon A Time, House of Cards, Homes Under The Hammer, Handmade National, Amazing Sheds

Favorite Music

Chill-out and anything from Faithless to the Beach Boys! Also love Chris Botti (Jazz), Sia, Sam Smith and DJ Tiesto ... so quite diverse!

Favorite Books

Anything by Deborah Harkness, Barbara Erskine, Anita Shreve, Phillipa Gregory, Sebastian Faulks, Isabel Allende, Marge Piercy, Angeles Arrien, Marney Makridakis, Dr Bernie Siegel, Jean Shinoda Bolen, Lynn Serafinn

Comment: Sorry the rating is so late. I had to be away from swap bot awhile due to a unplanned event. I'm trying to fix everything - it will take me awhile. So I'm just getting these ratings done.

Comment: What an interesting effect, coffee making you sleepy! I can think of times when that would be handy or really inconvenient. Hey with the mint tea, doesn't it affect the flavour if the leaves aren't dried? I've always wondered because I love chocolate mint, but I don't know how to turn it into tea. Anyway, thanks for the fun read, and have a nice day!
Response: Ha! It's not one of those things that I can rely on 'tho - sometimes it will really get me wired!! If you have dried mint leaves, the taste is stronger - I just prefer a big bunch of fresh mint leaf tea as I adore the smell and the colour; a beautiful vibrant green! YUMMMMY I hope you get to figure out how to make chocolate mint tea - I'd love to try that! x
