I'm a 50 y/o female, married, with two Cats and a Standard Dachshund. I live in the USA, on the edge of the Ozarks if that means anything to you :) And several dozen squirrels live out back and entertain us.

Colors are Jewel-tones, blue, teal, and violet predominating.
Ears are pierced, but have nickel sensitivity.
General likes -- bead stuff (esp "e" / size 6 beads)(no plastic/acrylic or tiny seed beads, please)(crow beads are the size of pony beads, but are made of glass), tiny bottles and jars and boxes, books, blank books, notebooks, handmade papers, recycled paper, hemp paper, little pewter charms (or brass, or plated, or...), journals, Moleskine Cahiers, natural fibers, dip pens, recycled paper, brads, origami paper; natural fabric like silk, cotton or linen; Scrabble tiles, old foreign coins (fake is fine), miscellaneous puzzle pieces, Tarot decks that happen to be missing a few cards, Occidental dragons/dragon stickers/papers, Halloween stickers/papers/stuff.
I like Chocolate! Esp. Dove or Cadbury's...and "real" black licorice (Panda brand or similar -- not Switzer's), Trolli Gummi Worms, and Bit O' Honey. Candy and such won't go to waste, however -- if it's something not to my taste, there's plenty of people to share it with :)

Actually, it's probably easier to list the few things I don't like -- so here goes! (And keep in mind I'm not saying anyone else shouldn't like them; this is just MY thing.)
Precious Moments stuff
Bertha Hummel-type stuff
Most TV shows -- I'm really not into TV at all, except the few shows listed above.

Flat-out allergic to tobacco smoke
Mineral/Petroleum oil-based skin care
Things that Weird me out
Monkeys -- especially the little hat-wearing cymbal-banging toy. Someone gave me one a few years ago and it went directly into the outside bin. Those things give me the creeps!
Most clowns -- real-live ones less so, but the ones on curtains, etc...shudder
DemonKidz Love the gal that makes 'em, but the dolls are just too much for me.
