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: Absolutely stellar swap..... no words!!! I wanted to put it all back in the envied and open it again because it made me feel so happy and special. Your envies are beyond amazing and so beautiful, I do not think I will ever be able to part with them I just want to keep looking at them!!!!!! Thank you for the note cards, paper and I loved the little envied with the bow - delightful. I found myself looking around because I wanted to share the happiness and beauty and realized I was home by myself and had to give myself a little chuckle. You brought some love and sunshine to my day.... thank you

Comment: Lovely little Valentine journal page...thank you so much! I do really love the "traditional" 4x4 pages, although I think most group members prefer the larger formats now. And Sylvia! What did I do to deserve such a fabulous envelope full of goodies? Oh, the Farmers Almanac cookbooks! I've already chosen several that I intend to make! You are an extremely generous swap partner, and I can't thank you enough.
Response: Unfortunately, my creativity doesn’t lend itself to my culinary skills. After reading your profile, I thought you might be able to put the cookbooks to use. I’m happy to know that you are enjoying the the items I sent winging your way. I, too, am fond of the 4x4 journal pages. Thank you for the rating . . . and the heart, too!
