About Me

Hi! My name is Kelley and I'm a vintage addict. I collect antique and vintage ephemera including postcards from all over the world, photos, cards, and papers. I'm a 36 year old Sagittarius. I live just outside Washington, DC (I'm a native!) with my husband and our two feline children. I love to travel and to send and receive mail!

Some of my favorite things include: cats, horses, owls, books, vintage pamphlets, housewife imagery, vintage florals, granny chic, Victoriana, the colors turquoise, aqua, grey, orange, green, red; cooking and recipes, fashion, sewing, crafts, visual journaling, all kinds of tape, children's book illustrations, kawaii, lucky cat, marie antoinette, vintage patterns or fashion illustrations, stickers, travel, maps, planner/calendar pages, foreign language pages, stamps, great britain, france/paris, scandinavian design, charms, buttons, fat quarters, colored pens, rubber stamps, charms, labels or tags for journaling, paint, ink, old lettering.

Books: My favorite thing is reading. I always have at least 2 books and an audio going at one time. I enjoy classics, literary fiction, scifi/fantasy, and historical fiction. Some of my favorite authors are Thomas Hardy, Jonathan Lethem, A.S. Byatt, Kate Atkinson, Dan Simmons, Hilary Mantell, Agatha Christie, and Neil Stevenson.

Magazines: I loved Domino and Blueprint (RIP). I would love to receive Frankie because I can't get it in my area and cute Japanese magazines are on my wish list. I also love artist zines and catalogs like Anthropologie and Toast.

Music: I like most kinds of music. Some of my favorites are '80s new wave and pop, folk, '60s revival, Americana, David Bowie, '90s britpop, glam, hairbands, Doves, My Morning Jacket, Neko Case, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, Cyndi Lauper, Miles Davis, Mozart, Beethoven, Simon & Garfunkel...

Movies: My favorites are Amadeus, Princess Bride, True Romance, White Christmas, any Alfred Hitchcock. I love old movies with Jimmy Stewart, Doris Day, Cary Grant, and Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

TV: I love Downton Abbey and all things Masterpiece, Vicar of Dibley, Simpsons, Amazing Race, Top Chef, Buffy, Supernatural, and Revenge.

Places: My favorite places are London, Paris, Singapore, Bali, Iceland, Cape Town, New York, Charleston, and Washington. I love museums, historic houses (like Mount Vernon), castles, and galleries.

Favorite color is that robin's egg blue/light aqua color.

Favorite flowers are mums, anemones, ranunculus, and anything green. I love coffee, tea, chocolate, and caramel. Favorite perfume is vanilla or rose. Always on the lookout for a good black writing pen. I love art supplies of all kind.

I do NOT need: ATCs, tiny scraps of paper, postcards, sewing supplies other than fabric and buttons, thread, beads.

Comment: Thanks for the funny cat card. It was send out late, but because I don't like giving a 3, I rate 5. It can happen to everybody, isn't it...
Response: Thanks for understanding! We actually moved house and I couldn't find the postcards until I unpacked a ton of boxes.

Hi Kelley! Welcome to Swap-Bot! So glad you're here! You are sooo going to LOVE it here! There are so many fun swaps, and this is such an amazing community of fun, talented, and creative people!

Welcome also to the ♥ Vintage Ephemera ♥ swap --- thank you for joining my swap! If you have any questions, please feel free to holler! Hope to 'meet you in the mail' often! :)

p.s. it is always a good idea to fill out your profile with as much information & detail as possible. All your likes, favourite colours, crafts, hobbies, wishlists, etc. The more specific info you have, the happier your mailbox will be! It makes it much easier for your swap partner to create/choose items that you suit you perfectly if you have a well filled-out profile. You will notice on most of the swaps that one of the main requirements is to have a well-filled out profile --- that is the case with this swap as well.

The more detail in your profile, the better the swaps will be for you and your partner!

Happy Swapping! :)
