Hello, my name is Shiralee, I'm a 45 year old single gal caring for both elderly parents. While I am doing that I am working towards creating for my 'one day home'. I love to sew, cook, garden, paint, draw, and do all sorts of scrapbooking. I'm a pagan, catholic, hippy, who aspires to live a simple life. I enjoy open minded people who like long letters. That's it from me. You can learn more about my life via my blog at Vintagepapery. Love, Shiralee.
I love anything from big band music, the 50's, 60's, 70's. With a smattering of 80's and 90's. I even enjoy heavy metal, guns and roses to symphonic heavy metal bands like Epica, Nightwish, Kamelot, Within Temptation.
I love to read a lot of historical books, how to books and any books relating to vampires, faeries, and the like.
Some movies I did enjoy were: Maggie. Mad Max: Fury road. Up.
I liked Penny Dreadful, I don't think they are producing any more seasons. And recently caught up on all the of the latest Walking Dead.
Somethings I do regularly: Paper Craft Painting Drawing Patchwork Embroidery Pressing flowers Drying flowers for potpourri
I particularly love crazy quilting.
I thought I should also add in a few of my favourite things:
I like the colour blue. More the old fashioned blues, like country blue and primitive country blue.
I love owls
I love butterflies
I love flowers, particularly the cottage types.
I like old fashioned tea cups
Country scenes, of barns, quilts, mason jars, flowers. Always flowers.
My favourite flower is Lavender and I also like the scent.
My favourite seasons are Autumn and Winter
My style changes but I always return to a cottage, country, preference. I like bright things, particularly reminisce of the depression era colours. I'm not adverse to cute modern Kawaii as I can also send them in other letters.
I drink tea, and like herbal tea.
I like country style. I like cottage Victorian style, I like the 1800's pioneer style, I like the 1940's style. In a nut shell, Granny shabby.
Mostly, I am very easily pleased and appreciate anything anyone sends as I know they put their time and care in to their letters. That's all that matters to me.
