About Me

I've been married for 13yrs and live in the country. I'm a stay at home mom to wonderful Hobbits, we also homeschool.

I really dislike the color yellow. It should only grace school buses and taxi cabs, sorry it's true. lol :)

I guess my style would be some sort of Victorian, Vintage, Retro Cottage mix. If it's old I'll probably like it.

There's always time for Tea!!

Favorite Music

I like most types of music...except rap, sorry. I listen to big band, oldies, motown, classic rock, and I love that awful music from the 80's :)

Favorite Books

I love books about the Victorian era, sewing, all things vintage and retro. I'm also a total history nut!

I also love homemaking books, cookbooks, craft books and tea party idea books.

Old fashioned fairy tales and classic books for children. Winnie the Pooh, Peter Rabbit, Paddington Bear, Chronicles of Narnia, R. L. Stevenson, All of a Kind Family, Little House, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, for just a few. I really like the Series of Unfortunate Events series, Lois Lowery's books, and Louisa May Alcott.

Some of my favorite fairy tales are Snow White, Emperor's New Clothes, Little Match Girl, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Three Little Bears, Snow Queen ,and Hansel & Gretel.

In 2011 I want to work on reading more literature. I have "seen" so many wonderful books, I want to change that.

Not sure where I will start, some possibilities:

H. G. Wells

Jane Austen

Charles Dickens

Favorite Movies

I like old movies from the 40's & 50"s.

I also like:





historical dramas

Favorite Television

Big Bang

Project Runway

Twin Peaks

I Love Lucy

Little House on the Prairie

Doctor Who

Masterpiece Theater

Twilight Zone


Mad Men

Warehouse 13

Favorite Crafts

Sewing is my favorite, I also like making cards/paper crafts. Gardening keeps me out of trouble, lol.


Matchboxes 32ct & 250ct

Doll clothes & accessories

Whimsy Jars

I want to try making Vintage & Victorian inspired:

Sewing kit

Writing set

Nature journal

Art set

May Day basket

Comment: Thank you for the seeds! I had good luck growing Chamomile in pots last year but am now out of seeds. So, I can really use the chamomile. And, I've never grown greens and am looking forward to it. Great seed choices!

For loving baddies so much, I don't seem to take much a liking to The Master so much..he does do the borderline insanity very well, I must say, but the whole Toclafane thing gave me the creeps!
