My favorite crafts are paper anything! I like stamping (I am not into cutesy scenes or animals and I am not into country type of stuff), scrapbooking, card making, collages, etc. Also, I love making beaded bookmarks.
I am so into historical fiction. Its not funny! I especially like anything written about British history. For some reason, I am totally enthralled with Henry VIII. My favorite authors are Philippa Gregory and Nicole Galland but I read authors based on their book. The all time favs are Jane Austen and Agatha Christie. My absolute favorite book is The Other Boleyn Girl. Also, I really liked the Wildacre series by the same author. Books that touch me in someway end being a favorite. Sometimes, I like an easy read like Isis Crawford's A Catered Halloween.
I enjoy reading, crafting and socializing with my few close friends. I am a lover of trees. I can't get enough of them so I travel long and wide to see them. I enjoy being close to my sisters and gossiping with them.
One day I hope to travel to my favorite city of London, England. I want to see all the sites associated with Henry VIII. Also, I want to take the Jack the Ripper at Night tour. I want to map out all the sites that Jane Austen wrote about in her books and travel to each one of them. Finally, I want to stay in a castle for the night and feel I have entered into another time. I want to drink in the atmosphere of England and enjoy every drop.
I have a dog that is my little boy. He is a mix of something and terrier. His eyes are the color of his fur. He is a little needy and wants to be in the middle of everything. Nothing is more important than a cookie (dog treat).
I like Foo Foo movies. Again, movies that are historical in theory like all of the Jane Austen movies, BBC, and PBS. My first foo foo movie was Dangerous Liaisons and that opened to Pride and Prejudice. I really like the Agatha Christie movies made by Acorn. My favorite at this time is Murder is Announced. I tend to watch the same movies over and over so that I can create with noise in the background.
I have two types of TV I like to watch. One is true crime like Court TV and investigation programming and a few reality shows. My all time favorite show is Project Runway. I like it because it is based on talent not being sneaky. Also, I like Top Chef.
I finally grown up and got a DVR. LOVE it. Whatever did I do without it?
As much as I love food, PLEASE do not send food from May to end of November due to the hot weather in Phoenix. It will melt and get all over everything! Thanks for the thought but I like to get my interesting and cool stuff non-messy.
I just bought a shabby chic looking tall dresser. It's perfectly me. I went looking for my books about shabby chic and want to redo my house. However, I have a husband that is dragging his feet with this but if I do little by little, I think I can do it. I am going back to my basic colors that I have always loved but had to put on a shelf so that my husband isn't too foo fooed out. (That his term for girlie, overly girlie.) I like the colors: pink, white, off white, robin egg blue, and sea foam green.
