About Me

I haven’t been here in a long time, but back pretty much just for the postcards and mailart. No preferences on postcard themes, but I do love a nice message on the back. Need a prompt? How do you organize your books?

I do not appreciate religious messages, of any sort. Please save them for someone who will enjoy them.

Interests include cross stitch, mailart, cats, vegetarian eating, progressive politics and humanist philosophy. I also enjoy art journaling.

I recently did a high ropes obstacle course with my grandkids. I thought I was afraid of heights, but turns out I am not. It included some truly terrifying obstacles, like walking across vertically hung logs at 20 feet, but I kept up great with my grandkids and loved every minute, especially zip lining! I’d love to hear from other over 60 folk who enjoy challenging their physical abilities and fears.

My profile is thin, but I’ve had a rough 5 years and still getting to know the me that has emerged

Getting to Know Me

After reading some profiles I am back to fill in some details.

My favorite book is All the Names by Jose Saramago. Favorite movie, The Ghost and Mrs Muir, and I am quite fond of the superhero genre. TV interests include Doctor Who, anything with Tim Gunn, the British sewing and baking shows, Good Omens, and the old Dick Van Dyke Show. If I had a million dollars I would start a postal related business that I’ve been thinking about for more than a decade.

I am very fond of hedgehogs.

My mottos, both original to my imagination, are “my stationery is not stationary,” and “inked mail, not linked mail.”

Lately ....

Trying to figure out gifs and if anyone can help me add a gif using markdown please let me know

Comment: What a gorgeous envie! I laughed a little at the concern for plastic melting. Lol. Chocolate and candles melt, but it doesn't get hot enough to melt plastic. At least, I haven't seen that happen. Anyway, I loved the note and envie. I'll get this going next round. I have no idea what I'll add yet--circles somehow!

Comment: Thank you for the autumn vibes circles and trees postcard! Even more crazy names for colours have I seen on nail polish bottles. Names like little stories. :)
Response: Sometimes I put paint chips together to make little poems :) Thank you for the heart

Comment: Hi Bonnie! Thanks for the great rattlesnake PC. I had no idea that there’s a Rattlesnake Museum, AND more interestingly - that there are 16 different varieties of them... I’m glad the tequila kept you from sending the tacky PCs to family/ friends, because that meant it got sent to me. *eyeroll* at the “Send More Tourists”, haha! Also, thanks LOTS for the old Maryland postage w/ oriole & black-eyed Susan!! Take care ;)

Comment: Thank you for the card! This genre of postcard does tend towards "big hole in the ground" doesn't it?

Comment: I like the motto you added to the card. I think i am going to add something about swapping male (oops, mail) art. I've had that response when I tell people my hobby is mail art.LOL.Interesting French post card. Love your envelope, hope you don't mind if I steal that idea.
