I'm 60, enjoying a second career as a Jewish Educator and love to cook and sew. I'm lucky enough to have a sewing/crafting room, great sewing machine, relatively new serger and giant stash of fabric. I also make jewelry and do alot of paper crafts. I love color...wearing color, decorating with color, crafting with color. I have pink hair. Favorite colors include: aqua and pink and denim blues (to wear) and tropical colors like turquoise, blue-greens (to decorate with).
In one word, eclectic. I love: vintage vibe dresses, flowy linen pants and dresses(lagenlook), the classic combo of navy and red. The predominant color in my closet is a pale aqua (spring and summer) and gray (winter and fall). (Gray is very easy to mix with lots of color accents.)
I love romantic comedies, mysteries, survival stories, sci-fi along with all the classic B/W movies. Favorites include: Independence Day and ID2 Pride and Prejudice (PBS and BBC versions) Bride and Prejudice (Bollywood Version) Back to the Future (1&3) Indiana Jones Young Einsten Back to the Past Casablanca 2012 My Big Fat Greek Wedding Harry Potters
I love to read but don't sit with a book as much as a have in the past. Now I listen to audiobooks and my audible account has 300+ titles. Favorite authors include: Clive Cussler, Diane Mott Davidson, Jane Ann Krentz. Shannon Hale and Sophie Kinsella.
Quilting and sewing garments crafting with kids decorating (although it's always on a budget)
I'm a sucker for Hallmark movies and really love their mysteries. Favorite shows include (currently) Project Runway, Top Chef, Superstore, Hell's Kitchen and Designator Survivor. Other favorites include: Grandchester Tommy and Tuppence Bletchly Circle Brooklyn Bridge I Love Lucy (doesn't everyone?)
Let's just start with saying, I love color! If you imagine the caribbean seas, I'm there. Love pinks and corals, blues and greens. Sunny yellows, delicate purples. I stay away from jewel tones and anything autumnal like ochre, brown, tan, rust. I like silver and rose gold but not gold.
Albert Einstein (smart people are so intriguing) Katherine Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn (my style icons) Fred Astarire, Gene Kelly, Ann Southern, Ginger Rogers (wish I could dance like them)
in no particular order.... Singing in the Rain Jurassic Park Only You Pride and Prejudice Bride and Prejudice (the Bollywood version) The Secret Garden The Little Princess African Queen Twister Little Women (every version)
