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 two cats that were adopted from a local animal shelter. Zelda is a pretty grey/white tabby with green eyes and Alastor is all black with a little white spot on his chest. He is missing his left eye and part of his left ear but he is still quite handsome (and he knows it!) I have also acquired Zoe, a small brown/black tabby, through unfortunate circumstances but she has a good home with me now.

PLEASE NOTE: As of November 2017 the road directly in front of my house is under major construction and this has impacted my mail delivery. I will always be sure to send my swaps out on time, however, receiving my mail is a bit more of a challenge since I have to go to the Post Office to pick it up while the road is being repaired. I was informed this could go on until the end of the year. I will do my best to get my mail in a timely fashion and provide ratings for my swap partners. Thank you for understanding. :)

Favorite Music

I really enjoy today's country music. Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean and Toby Keith 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.

Favorite Movies

I'm all over the road with this one... film noir like the Maltese Falcon and Macao are timeless. Alfred Hitchock'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.

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 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!)

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 (I have 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, BLACK cats, the BEACH (especially the ocean), COFFEE, 1967 Mercury COUGAR XR7, art DECO, FLEA markets, GERMAN shepherd dogs, GAME of Thrones, GELATTO, ITALIAN ICE

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.

Comment: thank you for the beautiful peaches postcard and I enjoyed your answers; your Positano, Italy answer immediately made me think of one of my favorite movies “Under the Tuscan sun.” Diane Lane stars in it and at one point falls in love in Positano. If you haven’t seen it I think you’d love watching the movie. It’s based on the real life memoirs of Frances Mayes who bought a dilapidated villa in Tuscany on a whim and restored it and her life at the time after a bad divorcé...anyhoo lol sorry for the ramble. Great swap! Thank you!!!
Response: So glad you liked the pc! Visiting the Amalfi Coast is my dream trip! I'll have to check out the movie you mentioned, sounds like a good one for a girls' nite! (Wine included!)

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!

Sending your postcard with a prompt out with tomorrow’s mail, I see you like them mailed naked so I’ll make sure that happens. See you in the mailbox later this week! 😘
