About Me

I have been retired from teaching elementary kiddos in an emotional support program, for almost years now! I still miss it, but I love having freedom to do other things that I love. I am Gramma to two little boys 6 and 3, and a little granddaughter who is 20 mo.old. and a newly arrived infant foster grandson4. I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband, our little Beagle mixed pup, Angel, and our elderly kitty Cooney. We live in a rural farming area. We're not farmers but love having a garden and raising some chickens. I love hiking, photography, sewing, crocheting and making jewelry. Sewing is on the top of my list though. I am currently working on a block quilt for our spare room where my grandsons sleep when the visit. I also love swapping postcards, letters, small surprise packages, buttons, photo cards, and especially FABRIC!.
I love to read books but mostly in the winter. I love to cook and try new and interesting recipes. I have been gluten free and sugar free for over a year now and feel so much healthier for it. So if you are sending me recipes, keep that in mind. Thanks. I have three grown children, and even though they aren't at home anymore, I still spend time with them whenever I can. We are a very close family. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 43 years and we are happy happy happy, to this day.

Favorite Music

Music, music,music I mostly listen to Bluegrass, Old Timey, old and new gospel, Swing, Country Swing, and Celtic. But I love to dance to old rock and roll and country. I love going to hear live groups. My husband is a musician and is in a Bluegrass band so we go to Bluegrass Festivals every summer. I also enjoy watching Austin City limits on Saturday night if we are home at 10PM.

Favorite Movies

I love to go to the movies and also watch a lot on Amazon Prime and Netflx in the winter. I like English drama and comedies. I like mysteries and detective movies.too. Not crime shows though. Recently watched Queen of Oowego, and Life of a King. Both about youth Chess players. I take my grandsons to the movies a lot too. I love going to movies on $5. Tuesdays!!

Message to swappers

Let me know by message if you have not received my swap. I will make it right!! I would hate to get a low rating for something that didn't show up. I am faithful at sending.

Things I love to collect

I love vintage fabric prints, especially from the 50's and 60"s. I also love brightly colored cotton blend prints. Wool fabric scraps are wonderful for my crafts. My favorite colors are cobalt blue and true red. But I love color in general, so if you are sending me something color related, just have fun with it. Note and greeting cards: I LOVE vintage and handmade cards especially for holidays, art cards of any kind. Postcards:vintage, black and white cards, art themed, countries,, animals, birds, musicians, quotes are always fun to get. I collect blue glass bottles. l love, beads, especially glass and ceramic, chicken themed items, fun or artsy note cards, post it notes, vintage anything. I love handmade potholders,cool stickers, little stuffies, especially sheep and owls. I love receiving other peoples creations.

Comment: Hi Sherry, A pleasant surprise to receive your card of Warriewood Beach :) I lived in Sydney for a while in my early career. I'm pretty certain I haven't been to that particular beach, it looks nice, so thanks! The Albert Einstein quotes are inspiring, and a nice touch. Raoul & Jeanette.

Comment: Hi Sherry, Thanks so much for the wonderful message on the pretty Florida postcard you sent. Grandchildren are such a joy! I lived in Deltona, Florida for two and a half years but back in the Buckeye. I had been living with my niece before that for several years. I have my own apartment now and really enjoying being on my own again. Take care and happy swapping! Judy

Comment: Thank you for bringing attention to a civil rights hero outside of the US. Racism is often America-centric, so the stories of Viola Desmond are often forgotten. Thank you so much for sharing! (Also, what are the odds that your sister and I share a birthday and live close by!)
