About Me

I am a mixed media artist and have been for about 9 years. I enjoy working with all things vintage - actually, I just love all things vintage.

I live in FL with my husband and our dogs, our youngest son joined the Air Force on September 11, 2007, so we are empty nesters, well except for the dogs and our 2 cats.

I'm just now starting to get back into sewing. For years I made the majority of my clothes - my oldest son never owned a pair of pajamas that I hadn't made for him, it's fun, I'm enjoying it.

Favorite Books

I have so many favorite books and am very eclectic in my tastes. Some of my favorite authors are Harlan Coben, Joshilyn Jackson, Philippa Gregory, Ken Follett, Carolly Erickson, Lee Smith, Mary Kay Andrews - so many! I love Historical Fiction, Stephanie Plum, and really good children's literature - like Cornelia Funke's Inkheart and Inkspell. I could go on and on about books, but I'll force myself to stop now!

Favorite Music

I'm pretty eclectic here, too. Sting is my all time favorite! I like Toby Keith, too. Lenny Kravitz, Bonnie Raitt, Shawn Colvin, Norah Jones, Michael Buble, Van Morrison, Concrete Blonde, Ray Charles, again, I could go on and on, but I won't!

Favorite Television

I could watch HGTV all day! I do like some prime time shows, too though. House, Bones, Miami Ink (Okay, maybe that's not prime time, but I like it!), CSI, Numbers, Survivor, Design Star, The Closer, Project Runway, Grey's Anatomy, Eli Stone, and I really really liked New Amsterdam - and the canceled it! What were they thinking???

RAnDOm StUfF. . . . .

I love dogs - I have an American Bulldog named Stella, a Boston Terrier named Gracie Mabel, a claustrophobic lab named Sophie and am keeping my son's dog, Brutus until he comes home from deployment.

I really like vintage buttons, old ribbon, odd metal bits, vintage ledgers, candlesticks, vintage linens, especially tablecloths and pillowcases, oh and pretty hankies.

I love birds and bird nests, bird eggs, and bird houses. Lately I've been altering bird house, purchased ones and ones my husband has made for me. I've begun collecting all things bird related, including pie birds.

I am an avid coffee lover, Boca Java Hazelnut is my current favorite. I also enjoy a cup of tea and have lots of favorites. I like Lifesaver Sweet Mints and keep a jar next to my work table.

My favorite colors are shades of blue, but I also like red, pink and very soft greens.

I enjoy cooking and baking, trying new recipes. Recently I've been on a pie baking kick and have discovered Skillet Pies - pies baked in a cast iron skillet - very fun and different, not to mention yummy! 4x6 recipe cards are always appreciated.

I love to garden, but I don't have a green thumb and Florida isn't always a forgiving landscape, but I keep at it. Every once in a while I get something so right, I know my thumb's turning green!

I'm a big list maker, so I have scraps of paper and little journals everywhere! If it's not on a list, it doesn't usually get done. I'm always looking for cute note pads and note cards, sticky notes - pretty writing papers.

I also like to organize, and I like to make everyday things as pretty as I can.

I live in Florida, it doesn't snow here, well okay it did once in the late 80's, but it wasn't much. Please don't send me snow related things as I don't have any use for them. Snow just seems really out of place here, at least to me. Thank you, I appreciate it.

Favorite Crafts

Sewing . . . Photography. . . Altered Art. . . Mixed Media Collage. . . Knitting. . . .Scrapbooking. . .

APrON SwApS

I like both half and full aprons. If sending me a half apron, I prefer a nice long one, one that's functional, instead of the cute little flirty half aprons. I'm not real big on lots of ruffles, though a small ruffle around the hem is nice. A pocket is always a nice touch, too. A medium is a good size for me, but if you'd like exact measurements, please let me know.

Please NO Snow People! Or things snow related!

Fabric Lines I Love

Sandi Henderson Michael Miller Denyse Schmidt Tina Givens Robyn Pandolph Erin McMorris Dena Fishbein Valorie Wells

I love the old vintage cottons, the heavy ones with floral prints. I also like fabrics with birds or retro kitchen prints.

I'm not fabric fussy, if you have a stash you're trying to use in swaps, please don't go out and buy something specific for me. I love soft colors, bright colors, a shabby chic look, retro styles, I'm sure you have something I'll love!

Comment: Hello Terri, Sorry I have been so slow in getting a rating done for you but I have been sick since before Christmas and my 2009 has started off with a continued battle will illness. With that said, I wish to express my appreciation for sharing your "Jungle Juice" recipe related to this swap. I enjoyed reading the recipe and it sounds TASTY. It is one I will look forward adding to my special recipe collection, A-Z Postcard Recipe Collection. It is also one that I will look forward to trying on those mornings when I am in a hurry and will share with a sister and a sister-in-law who have families as this sounds great for their kids and something they could make for themselves.. Hope that you had a nice holiday season with family and friends and that 2009 is filled with all the best for you, your family and others important to you. Hope we crossed paths in 2009 and I will work hard to be more prompt on my ratings. Barb sleepingrover2010

Comment: Hello Sylvia, Sorry I have been so slow in rating you, but my health has been very poor since before Christmas and has continued to be an struggle in 2009. So, I am having to take it slow and easy in everything I do. With that said, I want to thank you for the Christmas Morning Casserole. It sounds YUMMY! Its one of those great recipes you prepare the night before and then cook the next morning while you open gifts or do some other special family tradition. I will be happy to add your recipe to my ever-growing recipe collection and next Christmas your recipe will be one I will be pulling out to try and share with friends and other families. Thank you for your extreme patience with me and I hope your 2009 is blessed with all the best for you and yours. Look forward to meeting up with you again in 2009. Barb sleepingroer2010 P.S. I love that your postcard is a Christmas postcard.

So, I am having to take it slow and easy in everything I do. With that said, I want to thank you for the two tasty Christmas Cookie recipes you sent me for this swap. Both sound YUMMY and will be ones I will add to my ever-growing recipe collection. I look forward to trying them next holiday season. Thank you for your extreme patience with me and I hope your 2009 is blessed with all the best for you and yours. Look forward to meeting up with you again in 2009. Barb sleepingroer2010

I just wanted to tell you again how much I love the bag you made for me...it is starting to warm up here and I have to say that the thought of changing bags for the spring is paining me...I love this bag so much! I have used it everyday since it arrived in the mail and I am not sure if I can put it away! Although, it will give me something to look forward to in the fall! =) Thanks again!
