About Me

Looking for VINTAGE HALLOWEEN or VINTAGE CHRISTMAS themed paper goods. My name is Missy. I am a wedding photographer. I started penpalling in February, 2020, and have found it a great way to make new friends. It's also been a fresh new way to fuel my creative side.
I just turned 50 and live in Illinois with my husband and 2 children. I grew up in northern Wisconsin and it is truly one of the prettiest places I have ever been (imo) :)

Favorite bug - luna moth

Favorite animal - Orangutan, ducks, whales, jellyfish, and polled herefords

Favorite flower - Dahlia and Peony

Favorite color - blue, olive, peony, and mustard

I tend to gravitate towards a lot of different styles, but nature and everyday life either vintage or not, makes me happy. I really like anything watercolor, clean and modern, torn and vintage, quality stickers are cool, and I LOVE sending postage stamps. One of my favorite parts of sending a letter is choosing the stamp to put on it.

Walking out to the mailbox to find a pretty letter in it is the best. Anyone else bummed when it's a national holiday and there's no mail?

@postalstamplife and @misselitephoto on Insta.

Would like to hear your favorite thing about living where you live. Honest answer, not what you think I would like to hear. :)

Please note: My address is correct as is with the "W" in the postal code. A lot of people ask me about that. :)

I Love

  • Vintage (1960 or older) handwritten letters and envelopes

  • Vintage Ephemera of botanicals, bugs, animals, fish, and marine life.

  • beautiful, vintage stickers (2 inches and larger)

  • Modern, comtemporary art stickers, papers, and stamps.

  • UNUSED USA postage stamps (the older, the better)

  • Pretty, vintage, or cool address labels

  • Homemade papers

  • Heartfelt letters and notes.

  • Unusual or rare items I like - Polled hereford cattle (they have the white face and red body)

About My Swaps

I am very punctual and I always try to send my swaps out early, before the deadline. If someone doesn't receive one of my swaps within 3 weeks after the deadline date, please let me know right away, before rating me for the swap. I will gladly send out a replacement. I used to say 2 weeks, but the mail has been sporadic lately.

Please be kind. Things happen in life. Reach out first if you feel something is not a 5 for any reason.

Currently Excited About....

-Old, handwritten letters and ephemera (1970s or older)

  • Mushrooms (vintage paper, stickers, notes)

  • Handmade paper or thick quality watercolor papers.

  • Address Labels

  • Photo pro magazines (or black and white images torn from them)

  • UNUSED vintage USA stamps

  • Vintage circus themed items

  • Ducks, whales (save the whales)

  • 4x6, or larger, colorful envelopes. Particularly looking for black or blue.

  • Quality writing utensils (what's your favorite pen to write your letters?)

Tea Swaps

I LOVE all teas and my tastes change throughout the year. Fresh, new tea bags only please. My favorite right now is black tea. My least favorite is chamomile. I don't drink old tea and will toss it.

Collections:

Currently collecting Pokemon cards for my son, so if you have any laying around.... even one is great.

(response to rating response) No - I didn't get to go!!! I was so bummed.. they went on a cruise and I couldn't afford to tag along at the time. I was bummed.. but I'll eventually catch one! :)
