Hi! My name is Care. I am married to Harold and have been for almost 20 years. I have a son and a daughter and each one has 3 kids so I have 6 wonderful grandchildren. All my grandkids are older and the oldest is 22. We own our home in our small town(my hometown), have 4 dogs named Buffy, Bernard, Gabby and Barney, a white cat named Chester, have a parrot named Ju Ju and a bunch of chickens(the one's that have the fuzzy faces) and bantams(tiny chickens).
I don't work outside the home anymore. I do sell on ebay and that gives me some mad money and some money to pay a few bills each month. I also keep up the house, yard, gardens and spend time with family, friends and the pets and other animals. Harold works at the coop grain elevator here in town and also keeps up the yard, lawns, and spends time with all of us also.
My hobbies are cardmaking, scrapbooking, ATC making but I am new at that, flower and vegetable gardening, Shopping around at flea markets, auctions/etc. to add to my collections which are vintage brooches, compacts, rouge tins, pill & perfume compacts, lipstick and lipstick tube holders, bedroom vanity sets, T.V. lamps, tea cup/saucer sets, metal cookie cutters, butter and cheeseball dishes, string holders, wall pockets, inkwells, paper weights, 50's purses and the old carnival bowls.
My favorite music is country and oldies.
I love reading mysteries. I have to read large print books because of my one eye. I love reading Mary Higgins Clark, Carol Higgins Clark, Fern Michaels and Phylis Whitney. I like to watch movies on the Lifetime channels, Syfy channel when I have time. But I cannot miss Jane Velez Mitchell and Nancy Grace on week nights.
I do alot of volunteer work at the food bank and the soup kitchen and also volunteer at no kill animal shelters. Also at the church. We are Methodist. Son and grandson drive in demolition derbies and so we go and watch them alot in the warm months. It is nerve racking for me and I worry about accidents when they are speeding and banging into the cars. Harold and I and son and family also take out our motor homes and go camping and fishing at the lakes. Also go boating, water ski, paddleboat, hike, play lawn games, grill and sit out by the campfire at night with marshmallows and roast them and make smores.
My favorite colors are pink, red, blue, burgundy, hunter green, black and white.
I love to talk, laugh, joke, have fun and live life to the fullest. Be with my family. I love chocolate and caramel candy, malts, sundaes, desserts of all kinds, wristwatches, vintage and new jewelry of all kinds, only clip earrings, plain or flavored coffee or teas(no mint of anykind), chocolate milk, bottled water, shopping at malls, walmart, thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, online, catalogs, home parties and more. Love Gloria Vanderbilt, Purple Passion, White Diamonds, Chantilly, Chanel No. 5 and Tabu perfumes. Embellished jeans and pretty tops and nice clothes/shoes/purses in general.
I dislike with a passion drinking alcohol, smoking, lateness, flakers, rudeness, snobby people, smart alecs, foul language, okra, ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, crickets, ants and I hate big hairy spiders in my gardens. I also can't tolerate big horseflies that sneak into the house when I open the door to come in when it is warm out. I don't like the flavor of peppermint or any mint flavor, don't like eggnog, baby & child themed items, cartoony themed items or stickers. Can't stand cloth purses. Can't stand dusting and vacuuming. I don't like to sew and so I don't need any sewing related items or fabric. I don't care for crochet or knitting and again there is not any need for any of that thread and yarn. I am not into postcards at all. I don't do any paper folding such as origami, iris and etc. So I don't need any baby/children items or paper, don't need any fabric or sewing items or paper folding items, no crochet or yarn items, don't need postcards, don't need stickers that are related to all these things and other items related to these things.
Themes are vintage, victorian, angels, animals, flapper girls, dancing couple, hand painted or drawn. I also like thimbles, magnets for the fridge, unusual keychains, purse embellishments, little coin purses that only hold change, small silhouette pictures, miniatures, hair accessories, rubber stamps, ink pads, glue sticks, gel pens, brads, embellishments and I love to cook and bake and make candy. I am open to all other crafters themes and am open minded and am not embarrassed or offended by someone else's artwork no matter what the themes are about. So Happy Swapping!
