About Me

Heya! I'm Danielle, but feel free to call me Dani if you like.

I'm currently living in Florida with my amazing Husband, Bobby. We love to travel and move around a fair bit.

I tend to be very laid back, but I can be very serious as well. I can also be extremely stubborn with certain matters. I can also be very, very silly at times and am definitely still a child at heart. I'm very much a live and let live kind of person. I sometimes ramble on and on...

I am very, very curious by nature. I'm not easily offended, so don't worry about that. I love learning about anything and everything. I also love to explore and try new things. I am absolutely fascinated by Ancient History and Foreign Cultures. I also love languages and am currently focusing on learning Korean.

I'm originally from Georgia, though I traveled a lot growing up. I will always be a Peach at heart and Georgia is where my roots remain deepest.

My current style is very influenced by Lagenlook, Mori Girl and BlackForest/Dark Mori.

I am fortunate to be married to a wonderful, supportive Hubby who encourages my swap-bot interests. He enjoys looking through my mail with me. He loves spicy things, dark chocolate and is a complete Tobasco sauce freak. He puts it on EVERYTHING! (ick!). He also likes interesting pens, zombies, moleskin notebooks and origami.

We collect matching couples items. Yes, we are cheesy like that. Especially pink & blue matched sets.

My Cat: Freya, The Bobtail

My Dog: Goryeo, The Korean Jindo


Random examples of things I like, collect or use often:

Anything Strawberry themed

Luck charms

Victorian / Shabby Chic themes, florals and such

Anything related to calligraphy

Any art or craft combining any combination of the following three themes: Strawberry, skulls and Fox / Kitsune / Gumiho

Anything featuring Korean Jindo (dog breed).

Pennsylvania Dutch themes & Hex signs. Nordic print & Scandinavian patterns.

Pretty fabric scraps in pastels, cute prints & floral prints

Vintage ephemera, especially animals & floral / herbal themes.

Little ceramic / china animals

Used postage (especially nature, dogs, birds)

Deco tape / washi tapes

Stamps: Schedule, holiday, emote, ect. that I can use in my planner, calender, letters or on envies / packages.

Anything to do with folk lore, folk magic and superstitions

Witchy whimsies, if its something that seems like it belongs in a witch's cabinet, I'll probably love it. Although, I'm not fond of overly Wicca themed items (like goddess figures/triquetra/triunes, pentacles, ect). Think more along the lines of Seidhr, Stregha, natural items, curiosities and legends.

Lore, mythology & Fairy tales. And anything inspired by them.

Morbid whimsies, skulls, animal teeth, taxidermy related ect

Cute Halloween stuff. I am specially fond of Jack-o-lanterns.

Woodsy / forest / natural themed items & whimsies

Anything from or related to Black Forest, Germany. Bavarian Folk items.

Folk art, clothing, accessories, charms or traditional daily life items from any country / culture.

Things that are Germanic, Scandinavian or Slavic themed.

Any foreign oddities or souvenirs from your country. Anything to do with your country or culture.

Vintage Linens: Tea towels, hankies, napkins, ect.

.5 and smaller pens, gel pens, sharpies, sakura pens, copic, generic art pens.

Cosmetics, face masks, ect.

Embroidery thread, Felt sheets, Wool roving for needle felting, eyes / nose for plushies & felted animals, ribbon, lace, pretty fabric scraps.

anything thoughtful. Anything handmade I can wear or use.

Making new friends

Making people smile

Decorated mail in my box




Food & Beverage: Tea and hot beverages. Dark Chocolate. Unusual foreign snacks or candy. Funky flavored kit-kats. Foreign spices, mixes, unusual foreign foods. I have no allergies, I'll try basically anything once.

I love flipping through foreign Fashion, Beauty, Home life & Craft magazines and Cookbooks. I love non-fiction pertaining to DIY, Self-sufficiency, Foreign cultures, ancient history, folk beliefs, herbs, natural or traditional healing & folk remedies, aromatherapy, livestock, dogs ect.

I go through a lot of fiction, but most fiction I just rotate through using Paperbackswap.

I really enjoy cosmetics, skin care and spa/pampering products and like trying samples of different brands. I enjoy using face masks, eye patches, bath soaks and such. My favorite brands include Etude House, Tony Moly, Too Faced, Missha and Skinfood. I mostly wear pastel or metallic nail polish.

Style: My style is mostly Lagenlook, Mori kei & Blackforest/Dark Mori. Because of the style, I generally wear M-L-XL tops/dresses. And size S-M leggings or tights. I wear a lot of scarves, loose socks, thigh high socks. I wear pastels, neutrals and dark colors. I avoid neons and gold color and gold jewelry. But do wear silver, pewter, brass, copper and bronze metal jewelry. I like jewelry featuring organic pieces (bone, stone, ect). I wear natural and glass pearls, but I avoid plastic. I love linen & lace. I love wearing handmade & vintage things. I mostly wear hair pins / hair sticks, but sometimes I also use pretty clips. I love bracelets & fun earrings.

My Crafts / Hobbies: Needle Felting, Kumihimo, Misanga, sewing, crochet, plushies, handmade envies, boxes, tags & gift bags

Please do not send

Unless senders choice, please refrain from sending the following:

  • Pasta
  • Sea Urchins (land urchins are tolerable, if they cook. Or clean.)
  • Kool-aid (Just too much implied commitment..)
  • Poached Unicorns (trapped with permit or sunny side up welcome)
  • Strawberry Shortcake the character (we're not on speaking terms)
  • Goats (I have two already)
  • More chickens (I'm only saying this to be responsible because I don't really NEED more chickens, but go ahead and send chickens).
  • Cheese (Because... Well, its just probably not a good idea...)
  • Cursed objects. Neat, but... I think I'm well stocked on bad luck. :p
  • Babies, toddlers and little people. Sorry, despite all the childish stuff, this is a child-free zone.
