I always send, I am NOT a flaker, EVER! If you haven't gotten a swap from me, please contact me and let me know.
Usually rate everything a "5", even late items. I will give you lots of time to send if you communicate. If you completely flake and ignore my correspondence, I will rate you a "1". If I rate you a "1" and I receive the item I will ALWAYS raise the rating for you, sometimes to a 5 if you have communicated with me. I understand that life happens and we can't always do what we need to in the time alloted. I am VERY understanding, please let me know what's going on if you can't meet your deadline. I hate having to give people anything but a "5".
Cooking & Baking
I am an avid collector of salt & peppers shakers. I have well over 300 sets, but I haven't counted in over a year. I also collect brass pieces, from small figurines to statues or vases. I also collect crochet patterns/pattern books. I also collect Currier & Ives Dinnerware, I inherited my first pieces from my grandmother and continue to pick up pieces when I can find them. I love souvenir magnets and "pressed pennies". I also like postcards from different places, with a little note and preferably stamped and sent, so I can see where it came from.
