About Me

I am a nineteen year old lady who lived in the mitten state (michigan) and decided to swim across the michigan lake to live in Illinois. Not really good at making descriptions about myself because I don't know who I want to be quite yet! However, I am fond of the past and any memorabilia that comes along with it. I love baking and drinking copious amounts of coffee and tea.

Favorite Music

Currently: Vampire Weekend, Beyoncé, Haim, Daft Punk, Fleet Foxes, Frank Ocean, Lorde, Phoenix, Local Natives, Foals, One Direction, Young the Giant, Zedd, Beach House,

I'm pretty open about my music tastes. My last.fm is here if you would like to take a peek at what I am listening to these days: my last.fm

The only genres that I don't particularly enjoy would be heavy metal, scremo, shitty rock music (ex: three days grace, nickelback, etc.)

Favorite Movies

The Grand Budapest Hotel, La Vie En Rose, Blue Valentine, Submarine, Darjeeling Limited, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Drive, About a Boy, Into the Wild, The Life of Pi, Atonement, Midnight in Paris, The Hurt Locker, Ratatouille, Gravity, The Royal Tenenbaums, Midnight in Paris, Zodiac, Adventureland, The Avengers, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Descendants,



  • flower seeds or other types of seeds

  • teacups/mugs

  • zines

  • maps (even better if it has your favorite areas marked or a day out in the city trail marked on it!)

  • buttons

  • handkerchiefs

  • pressed flowers

  • badges or pins or patches

  • any type of vintage ephemera

Other likes

Stickers, stamps from other countries, coins or paper money from foreign countries, mix cds, film, decorated envelopes, washi tape, tea, ticket stubs, milk bottle caps, foodie things, coffee, vintage matchboxes, old photos, candy from your region, pens/markers, different types of stationery/paper/newspaper/etc, cats, fashion, graphic design, pugs, goats, sheep, Ryan Gosling, WTNV, Tom Hiddleston, movie themed things, craft ideas, etc.


My favorite types of tea have to be black/green teas. I really like dessert teas if they are more fruity than floral. I dislike any orange-spice teas and any teas that are too perfume-y. But I'm more than willing to try any type of tea that might be your personal favorite!


For coffee I like basically anything. I tend to lean towards organic and fair-trade coffee since coffee production includes lots of pesticide. However I'm not picky about my coffee I love every type except instant coffee.

Any other type of food product I'll more than likely love! I'm not a picky eater.


Zebra print, leopard print, obnoxious rainbows, owls, anything that screams pre-teen vibes, anything religious.

If you send me a Type 3 swap that does not look like any effort was put in it I will not rate you with a heart. (If I could I would rate with 1's and 3's but I'm not completely heartless) It is really unfair for so many people to put time, money, effort and care into the parcels that they are sending out for free only to get a pile of garbage in return

Favorite Crafts

Lately, I'm into painting wooden badges! So any type of paint pens (extra fine points) would be appreciated!


Comment: hi stella.. thanks for the swap.. Just a side note.. sorry for the late rating.. cos there's no title written on the swap.. (hence I got to look through the swap lists to find you) and also actually the swap call for 3 different denomination stamps.. I'm not fussy with that.. just letting you know.. thanks.. cheers
Comment: Squeal! I love this envelope! The stamps! The white ink on brown paper! The pansy! The polka dots! Yes, that's a lot of exclamation points! I am looking forward to trying the lovely looking tea :)
Response: I'm glad you like it! Your envelope was probably my favorite to doodle on for this swap :) And I hope you enjoyed the tea!
Comment: Too darling envie! I just love it! And look at all those cute hand drawn eyes. Thank you for that personal touch. Someone drew a marker cancellation thru most all the stamps. Grrrrr. At least they didnt get the American Doll. Shes the first one Ive got so far. YaY. Jasmine Green? Ooo my first there too. Love the goodies. THANK YOU, x KIT

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful seahorse envelope. I enjoyed reading you letter as well. The vintage photograph is now my first one I own. I love it. My husband loves taking photos and I showed it to him and he really liked it as well. Makes you think about the past and if those ladies were on vacation or just taking a summer swim. Thanks again so much. :)
Response: The vintage swimming ladies was one of my favorite photos as well and I am glad it is in good hands now! I just received your reply today and I loved the pressed flowers you sent! I'll be sending you more goodies soon! :)
