I love the story that vintage tells and collect anything old - buttons, books, bottles, jewelry, linens, china, fabric, drawer pulls, lace, dollies, dice, yardsticks, marbles, ribbon, mercury glass, worn out paint brushes, flower frogs ... (could go on forever!)
I think presentation is as important as the gift. A simple item can be adorned to impress. I love dressing up my sends and strive to make my partner swoon and sigh. Of course, I appreciate when this happens to me!
A word about swapping -
I join swaps to share of myself and to please another. What I send is representative of who I am - I always strive to be my best! I play at 110% - and expect the same in return. I want to participate with others of integrity, accountability and high standards.
I CREATE EVERY SWAP AS IF IT IS A PRESENT FOR MY BEST FRIEND!
Someone else said this, I relate ~
RHINESTONES & GLITTER ARE MY PROZAC
WHAT ONE MAKES WITH THEIR HANDS, ONE GIVES WITH THEIR HEART
DON'T BE LIKE THE REST OF THEM, DARLING!
LIFE IS HARD ~ IT'S HARDER IF YOU'RE STUPID
ALWAYS ACT AS IF YOU ARE WEARING AN INVISIBLE CROWN
BETTER TO BE ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS THAN ABSOLUTELY BORING
THERE'S NO NORMAL LIFE ~ THERE'S JUST LIFE! GET ON WITH IT
TAKES A MIGHTY GOOD MAN TO BE BETTER THAN NONE
WORRY IS A MISUSE OF YOUR IMAGINATION
INSTEAD OF THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX, GET RID OF THE BOX
DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK

A word about rating - I rate for the quality, care & heart put into a send. Tossing in "extra's" does not justify top rating.
THINGS I DO NOT LIKE, please do not send - * Food or Drink of any kind (except gourmet coffee beans from your area) * Candy, Gum * Gothic or dark stuff or porn (someone did!) * Cheap stuff - nothing from the $ type stores * post-its * lip balm * cutesie stuff * earrings * note cards/paper * stickers * makeup, nail polish, lotion - no cosmetics * teacher reward or cheap stickers * cheap gift tags * washi tape wrapped on a card * scraps of paper cut or folded to fit envelope * playing cards
If you're an active swapper, I know you have been stomped on and abused (flaked on/not rated) just like me. There ARE fabulous ladies on swap-bot; I am seeking out those kindred spirits and fading out the lesser.
Thank you kindly for taking the time to read my narrative!! Hope to meet you in a special trade!
