We may have different interests, but as long as it's legal I'm willing to shop and swap for it!
I've suffered from major/chemical depression for almost 26 years and Social Anxiety Disorder for a decade. Yep, I'm nothing but parties and hijinks!
I'm very sarcastic, have gallows humor, very open-minded (and thus confused on most things), not political, huge imagination, massive dreamer (daydream all day, dream every night) and nothing like the me in my head. Oh and I can be extremely shy and quiet.
Need To Know - I'm a window shopper online and offline, so my wishlists are looong. My wishlist should be considered my like list: It's there because I like it, not because I want it. So the crazy stuff you see? Um, hi? I'm crazy.
Plan for the best. Prepare for the worst. Have faith in the rest...or rock, paper, scissors.
I like mysteries (cozy or humor), mental floss books and stupid crook/people/quote/signs books.
I do read YA and children's books. I even have a Paddington Bear book signed by Michael Bond! I love Paddington, Winnie the Pooh (old, not new), Richard Scarry, Enid Blyton, Frog and Toad, Little Bear, Madeleine L'Engle, Margaret Mahy, Astrid Lindgren, Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, Susan Cooper, Vivian Vande Velde and Diana Wynne Jones. If only I still had them all...
Used books are great if they're in good (readable) condition. Please don't send me a Bookcrossing book, because I'll feel really guilty for receiving it. (I donate all my books to the local library, so it's journey will end with me!)
Unless the swap calls for it, I prefer them in an envie, not naked.
I like vintage, lighthouses, multiview, artistic, kitschy, alternative, humorous, unique, recipe, first day of issue (postage stamp pcs), pre-stamped, odd material, photography, street art, indie, hotels, cartoony, celebrities, whatever is popular or famous where you live, owls, Moomin, Garfield, snarky, cats, dogs, Snoopy, any of my favorite shows/movies/music, etc.
For touristy postcards, my favorite places are: Florida (esp. Clearwater, St. Augustine, Amelia Island or the Florida Keys), Pennsylvania (esp. Erie), New York (esp. NYC, Jamestown, Chautauqua, or the Finger Lakes area) California (esp. Santa Monica, Venice, or Carmel), Japan, Ireland and England.
Thrift Store Items
I like bookmarks, magazines, coloring books, mystery books, postcards and note cards
Colors: Silver, greens, blues and creams
Animals: Cats, dogs, birds (esp. owls, ravens and chickadees), turtles, pandas, koalas, wolves, panthers, hedgehogs, frogs, flying pigs, dragons and leopards.
TV Shows Elementary, Face Off, Double Divas, Haven, Sherlock, CSI, CSI: New York, Warehouse 13, Blood Relatives, Bones, Dr. Who, Torchwood, Auction Hunters, American Pickers, Pawn Stars, Person of Interest, Unforgettable, Blue Bloods, Mythbusters, Ghost Hunters, Brad Meltzer's Decoded, The Dead Files, World's Dumbest, Orphan Black, Bridezillas, Snapped...I think my TV watching revolves around CBS, PBS, BBC America, SyFy, Tru, A&E, History, and all the Discovery channels!
I haven't been to a movie theater in ages, so my faves are all oldies. Murder By Death, Clue, National Treasure, The Matrix, Speed...will add more when I think of them!
I listen to all sorts of music: international, classical, pop, rock, hard rock, lite rock, easy listening, oldies (as in the 1940s), r&b, etc. My current faves are Mackelmore, The Lumineers, fun., 2CELLOS and Adele
Nestle Smarties, Mars Maltesers, Cadbury flakes/fingers/roses/etc (shouldn't have chocolate, but I'm a rebel), Hula Hoop crisps, anything lemon or peach flavored (except tea), mints, gum, most UK foods/sweets, most Japanese hard candy, cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds...can't think of anything else at the moment!
Bookmarks, postcards or sticker memorabilia for my fave movies, TV shows and music. Or any bookmarks, postcards or stickers advertising books
Sugar skulls, skull designs (love Alexander McQueen skull designs and wish it was in my price range!)
Mystery Mosaics (those coloring books that look like tons of squares and you don't know what the picture is until you color in the squares)
Considerate swappers who follow the rules!
I don't really collect anything at the moment due to life being so....life like, but if it isn't for me I'll make sure it has a good home (I promise not to let the mutt eat it because vet bills are expensive)
For My Mom
For the demon mutt
Anything dealing with rape, assault and acts of physical and mental violence/abuse. Too personal, too close to my heart, makes me cry and helps the depression. So no postcards or brochures please!
Although I don't like glitter, I won't throw a fit if you use it (Some of y'all use Martha or Stickles and I know those are expensive!) Please don't send me glitter for my crafts. I seldom use it and when I do, I use glass glitter (which is basically just crushed and sanded glass)
