I love shabby chic, cottage, vintage, retro, and yard sales. I like to sew, craft, and take pictures. I watch lots of movies and read tons of books. I love pink things, tattered and worn things-things that have had a previous life. I like things that are useful. I like things that are useless but beautiful. My 'degree' is in history and geography. I am 40ish yrs old. I live in a small town in south Texas and wouldn't leave here for a million dollars! PLEASE NOTE: I may be late in sending out swaps for various reasons (kids, life, etc) but I will NEVER flake. I have too much fun here :)
I have too many faves to list, but I absolutely LOVE historical fiction-but not the tacky romance novels. I'll read anything relating to medieval times, edwardian and victorian England, U.S. during 1920's-30's-40's.
I listen to anything and everything except rap. Really! I drive my kids nuts in the car because I am such a channel flipper! Oldies, 70's, Pop, Rock, Dance, Christian, Mood, whatever!
I don't watch a lot of TV but if I am watching the box it's on Fox News. I do make time for Walking Dead, Top Shot, Falling Skies and Mad Men.
I like to sew using vintage fabrics and trims. I do not consider myself an artist, but I do like to create things. I am just beginning in paper crafts and collage. I love taking photos, but am not much of a scrapbooker.
Beautiful, sparkly things. Old, worn, tattered, previously loved things. Fairies. Roses. Tiny things. Interesting old books. OLD (1960's and before) paper items such as magazines, letters, receipts, photos, patterns, greeting cards, etc. Paint by numbers (either ready to paint or already painted). Weird, kitchy pens or markers. Old lace. Washi tape. Ink pads. Souvenir patches. Pressed pennies.
We have a Boston Terrier-best dog ever :)-and 2 guinea pigs. Send me anything Boston Terrier or Guinea Pig related.
I love getting packages covered with postage stamps. Instead of having the postal clerk slap that ugly, boring postage paid sticker in the corner, ask if he/she can use actual stamps instead. I know it's not always possible, but if you can, I would certainly appreciate it!
I love overalls! I have a few but they are wearing out quickly. The 3 pair that I have are being held together with safety pins...I appreciate worn, soft and broken in overalls-not new. If you are a thrift/tag sale shopper and run across a great pair of previously loved overalls, I would be thrilled beyond reason to receive them.
