About Me

I am recently retired and now have the time to truly stop and "smell the roses"! I was diagnosed with both breast and kidney cancers eleven years ago. What an adventure that was! Early detection saved my life and I have much to be thankful for. I am quite fond of unique and antique items. More often than not I will find something interesting at an antique mall, flea market, or garage sale that will call out to me. I've purchased a multitude of dustable "treasures" that way. I enjoy decorating for all holidays, but Halloween is my favorite. I like to do counted cross stitch on aged linen using reproduction sampler patterns and/or primitive charts. I'm a big fan of note papers, ribbons, and vintage stickers, too.

Comment: I'm saving my gifts to open on Christmas day but I already know that you deserve a heart based on your lovely letter. My condolences to you on the loss of your sweetheart. No matter how long you have together it's never enough time is it? I make Christmas cards for everyone on my list whether they appreciate the craft or not! LOL Wishing you a peaceful holiday.
Response: I'm pleased to know that you like what you have seen so far. I enjoyed putting your parcel together and look forward to a possible heart. I admire your ability to wait until Christmas before opening it though. I'm afraid that I'm not that strong willed! Happy holidays to you and yours.

Comment: Hi, yes, it's been awhile, but I remember a swap from you. How are you doing? Your 10 page letter is interesting and please feel free to type all the letters you send me for a long long time. Maybe sharing our "general thoughtful moments" will help you recover the you again. The extras you sent are awesome, birds and butterflies, perfect. Thank you. Your envelope made me smile. Take care and look for a letter from me in about a week, Doskie
