About Me

Updated: Dec. 9th, 2016

Migraine Triggers: Chocolate & anything highly scented like incense or perfume.

I'm not a smoker, so please try not to send things that are extremely smoky smelling.

My Name:

I know some people will think this is being "picky", but my first name (Shelia) is spelled with the i after the L instead of after the E. (It is still pronounced like Sheila) I always try to spell people's names correctly, so I would like the same in return. Don't blame me - that's how my doctor spelled it on my birth certificate! My parents didn't realize it until sometime later. LOL!

Hello! My name is Shelia and I'm 42 yrs old. I live with my husband, Jeff (more about him farther down) and our cats Peaches & Bella. I love animals and nature. We raise chickens for eggs & as pets.

My husband & I were married on Dec. 5, 2009.

I love to garden (flowers & veggies), read, watch TV, write letters to pen pals, take photographs, go to thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales, and learn new things.

I love all things retro, vintage, retro housewife, & Anne Taintor

I love spooky, weird, creepy things. I really love the classic Universal monster movies.

Friday the 13th & Halloween are two of my favorite days of the year.

I love the number 13. Sometimes my birthday falls on Friday the 13th. The next one is in 2020.

My favorite colors are almost any shade of purple, orange, or pink. I also love the colors from the 50's-70's like avocado green, harvest gold, retro pink, etc. I think I was born in the wrong decade. LOL!

I will always rate swaps once they are received and I rate fairly, according to the guidelines. If I'm going to rate below a 5, I will message you first and explain why and give you a chance to fix it. I hope that you will do the same for me.

RUSS Troll

  • Troll pencil toppers (1 1/4-1 1/2 inches high, not including hair) They have a symbol on their belly such as a star, heart, diamond.
