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.
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.

I now own a basic Nook & my husband has a basic Kindle.
I would love to start the Tales from Grace Chapel Inn series, but my library doesn't carry them & they are still $7+ each even on Amazon.com. There are over 20 books in the series!
Here is a list of a few of the movies I like:
My favorite TV shows are:
I collect the following things:
My husband never gets mail unless it is junk mail. I get lots of fun mail almost on a daily basis & it makes him sad that nothing ever comes for him.
If anyone is interested in sending him a postcard, please send me a message & I'll give you the address. Thanks!
His name is Jeffrey Carter. His birthday is Oct. 22.
