It may go without saying, but please message me if a swap seems delayed or missing so I can resend. Everyone deserves happy mail!
A little about me: I am 38 years old and live near Portland, Oregon. I love antiques and "vintage" things. My prescription glasses are a pair of 1954 cat eye frames from an antique shop.
I'm happily married for 11 years (my wedding cake topper was Link and Zelda) and a stay-at-home mom to two adventurers who keep me busy. I am vegan, perhaps a touch "hippie" but very nerdy, artistic, and a lover of science and science fiction. I'm a bit eclectic!
poetry and tea
arts and crafts (more mod podge anyone?)
Harry Potter (Ravenclaw)
8 byte video games
unique postal stamps, I especially adore all things postal related (air mail, pony express, mailboxes, etc) and women (Harriet Quimby, Amelia Earhart, Sacajawea, women voting, etc)
memo sheets (unfoldend) and writing paraphernalia
Anything with mermaids (sinister or seductive)
fairies (sweet or child-like) and woodland creatures
All history, but especially art deco (1920's) and art nouveau (1910's). I also have an affinity for mid century (1950's).
Georges Méliès type of images:
