About Me

Hello everyone! I live in a beautiful New England town in a quirky old cottage that was built in 1830. It may or may not be haunted.

My avatar is my sweet German shepherd girl Zoey. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge in January 2017 at age 14. She was very special. I miss her every day and will love her always.

I have a cat who was adopted from a local animal shelter. Her name is Zelda Mae and she is a pretty grey/white tabby with green eyes and very soft fur. Due to a change in my Mom's living situation I have taken in her Siamese cat, a beautiful girl named Sassy Lin, and also her dog Bella, a boxer-pitbull mix. When it comes to animals I am a big advocate for "adopt don't shop."

I pledge to send my swaps on time and rate promptly! If you haven't received something from me I am happy to re-send.

Favorite Music

I really enjoy today's country music. Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Parmalee and Kip Moore are some favorites. I can also take it old school with Johnny Cash. Seriously, the Man in Black is awesome! Love The Wallflowers. And I can't forget The New York Dolls! (70's glam rock fun!) The song Estranged by Guns 'N Roses is an all time favorite.

Favorite Books

I will read anything that I find intriguing or interesting but I especially like mysteries with a supernatural element. Those vintage Gothic novels from the 1960's and 1970's are a true guilty pleasure! Growing up I loved the Nancy Drew mysteries and I so wanted to be her (boyfriend and cool car included)! I've recently become quite interested in Feng Shui so I've been looking for books on that subject. Biographies and autobiographies can also be of interest.

Favorite Movies

I'm all over the road with this one... film noir like the Maltese Falcon and Macao are timeless. Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat is a definite favorite. If I come across Jaws or The Green Mile chances are I won't change the channel. I loved Never Let Me Go (and the book too). A comedy that can make you laugh out loud is always a winner. I saw We're The Millers in the movie theatre with my cousin and we still laugh about it. I also really like Streets of Fire, Dog Day Afternoon, Double Indemnity, Baby Driver, The Prestige and A League Of Their Own.

Favorite Television

Well... I do like Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. I try to catch the local news at least once a day. I enjoy cooking shows like Chopped, Guy's Grocery Games and Beat Bobby Flay. Remember the sitcom Wings? On a contemporary note I am really enjoying This Is Us. The true crime/homicide/forensic stuff fascinates me. (I still want to be Nancy Drew!) My Mom likes Say Yes To The Dress and when I'm visiting with her we will often watch that together.

Favorite Crafts

I like putting together picture album scrapbooks although finding the time to dedicate to do this is a challenge.

Other Favorite Things

German shepherd dogs, Game of Thrones, the color pink, anything with glitter and sparkle, polar bears, the moon, roses and sunflowers, cardinal birds, vintage Pyrex, black cats (my daughter has a one-eyed black cat named Alastor), things with leopard spots, ocean beaches, a good cup of coffee...

ABC's of me (work in progress)

ANTIQUES, AMALFI coast, ART Deco, researching my ANCESTRY, ALICE In Wonderland, BLACK cats, BRIDGES (Brooklyn Bridge!), the BEACH (especially the ocean), BI-planes, CARDINALS, COFFEE, 1967 Mercury COUGAR XR7, CHRYSLER Building, art DECO, DARK Shadows, open all night DINERS, ESCAPE rooms, EIFFEL tower, EMILY the Strange, FLARE jeans, FLEUR de lis, FOXES, FLEA markets, FILM noir, FUNKO pops!, FENG shui, FORTUNE cookies, GERMAN shepherd dogs, GLITTER, GAME of Thrones (House Stark!), GELATTO, HONEY and HONEYBEES, HUMMINGBIRDS, going on a HIKE, ITALIAN ICE, IVY (not poison!), KOMBUCHA, LEOPARD spots, LIGHTHOUSES, LET'S Make A Deal (Monty Hall!), LITTLE Free LIBRARIES, the MOON, MANEKI Neko (Lucky Cat), MYSTERIES, MOJITOS, MINI-golf, NEW York City, OLD school, POLAR bears, the color PINK, PICNICS, PLATFORM heels, PLAGUE doctors, the PLANETS, PIN-UP girls (of yesteryear), POISON dart frogs, PIZZA, The PARTRIDGE Family (David Cassidy, sigh!) vintage PYREX, PIRATES, REISLING wine, STARS, SUGAR SKULLS, SUSHI, SKELETON keys, SPARKLY things, SUMMERTIME and SUNSHINE, finding SEA glass, STEAMPUNK, TAROT cards, THRESHER sharks (I love the tail), TIE-dye, WORDS WITH Friends

I love secrets! Share one with me and I promise not to tell.

When swapping postcards I do prefer to receive mine written on and stamped (naked). I like keeping in line with the original intent of how the card should be sent and any bumps and bruises it may acquire along the way are all a part of its journey.

Wishlist

I've recently become intrigued by the idea of putting together a Franken Deck of Cards. (So far I only have one card and a long way to go!) I will gladly accept any playing cards anyone wants to send me. I am happy to reciprocate by sending you something in return :)

Comment: Thank you Donna for the cute Halloween card with black on a broom & your very nice sharing your daughter Halloween plans for pumpkin carving. That's so sweet! I don't carve the pumpkins I get, I draw faces on them instead. As I use the pumpkins afterwards for pies & cookies.

Comment: Thank you! We are safe from the fires, but we, like everyone else, are dealing with some pretty heavy smoke and bad air quality.

Comment: This got damaged in the mail and only the bottom 2/3rds arrived in a USPS "body envelope". However, I can figure out most of the message :-). I totally agree that working as a tour guide in a historic mansion would be awesome! I love visiting these, too. I wonder if you mentioned a specific house close to you; the best tour I've been on was the completely empty Montpellier (James Madison's home).

He also loved the picture of Alastar you sent. When when he saw it he said awwwww! He thought Alastar was so sweet & had lots of empathy for him. He hung his picture on his bulletin board where all of his important stuff goes. Take care!
