About Me

Greetings, Programs!

I'm fortunate enough to be able to putter around the house, cleaning and crafting. I moonlight as a Medical Transcriptionist.

It's just my husband and I here in a little 50s house on the lake. Well, my husband and our chihuahua. And two black cats. And 7 chickens, but they have their own house to live in.

LIKES

Vintage/Victorian-style: Women, Medicine, Flowers, Insects, Animals, Transportation.

Art Deco

Old or old-looking papers: Book pages, Distressed or Dyed papers, Sheet music

Steampunk

Anything fortunetelling-ish: Palmistry, Psychic Readings, Tarot, I Ching, etc.

Stamps - especially international

Many thanks to all who give me a rating!

Favorite Music

I'm a classical girl at heart. I've been repeat playing this Beethoven piano sonatas CD like crazy times. The Allegro of the Moonlight Sonata is my current go-to song. Seriously, I punch dance it out to that song before I go in to rehearsals. Totally gets me pumped.

Favorite Books

I always love classics like Little Women, Pride and Prejudice, and Anne of Green Gables.

However, I'm also into the sci-fi of Adams, Asimov, and Clarke. I'm currently reading an author named Barry Hutchison, who is wicked, laugh-out-loud hilarious. He writes a book called Space Team, and there are various sequels. If you like Douglas Adams, I highly recommend Hutchison!

My old standbys, however, are Agatha Christie or Earl Stanley Gardner. Poirot and Perry Mason FTW, am I right?

Favorite Crafts

I'm a hooker (crochet!) of 20+ years. I mostly crochet amigurumi for short-term projects, and blankets for long-term. I dabble in sewing. Simple things like skirts made out of Starry Night fabric and pencil pouches.

My current fave for the last year or so has been traveler's notebooks. I'm for Midori, through and through. I use them for planning, free-form journaling, art journals, junk journals, wish lists, and project planners.

I'm also active in the local community theaters!

Favorite Television

I usually have several favorite things instead of picking just one, but as far as TV is concerned, Bewitched is the best show of all time!

I love anime! Bleach binge over. What should I watch next?

I like the usuals like Black Butler, Tokyo Ghoul, and Sword Art Online. Don't forget Pokémon! I also like some "outliers" like Blood+, Blue Exorcist, and Madoka Magica.

Continuing with the comic-bookish theme, I'm into Agents of Shield (I'm totally a Marvel gal, collect a few comics, too) and Gotham. We don't have "regular" TV, so it's mostly Netflix, Hulu, and online. Have you tried the Google Chromecast? A-ma-zing!

Comment: Thank you for the washi samples! Yes, I can agree with you on fate. I do believe that everything happens for a reason and we end up places (good or bad) for a reason.
Response: I wish we always knew the reasons! Thanks for the heart :)

Comment: I can agree with believing in fate and I have to add karma as well.
Response: Agreed. Although I'm waiting on a couple things for which I'm hoping karma doesn't bite me too hard... :/

Comment: Natty you are adorable! :) Thank you for this fun mail. I loved this little swap and as a chihuahua mom I totally loved hearing from Natty. :)
Response: When I told Natty her letter went to a chihuahua mom, she was really confused. "Is there any other kind?" her big, brown eyes conveyed. I know she didn't put this in her letter, but she is a dreadful snob. I'm pretty sure she doesn't even consider breeds outside of chihuahuas to be dogs at all. Many thanks for the heart!

Comment: Great card with dog, and I really like the frog postcard. Thanks so much.Just moved to an apt after living for decades in a house--so no trick or treaters. I did decorate the door with my dracula stuffed frog and a bucket full of chocolate eyeballs. The eyeballs are disappearing, so someone is taking them (maybe the person who vaccuums the hall? the Fedex delivery person?) Susan (brooklynbunch)
Response: So glad you liked it! Disappearing eyeballs, huh? I think that could be a Scooby-Doo mystery... Thanks for the heart!
