About Me

I'm a wife, mom, grandmother . I am a military spouse so LOVE my patriotic/Americana themes. We own a seasonal cottage in NY state that has a country flare (sunflowers, roosters and bugs with lots of "Grandma & Grandpa decor"...think books, puzzles, picnics, camp fires, journals (lazy days)!!! I'm into reading, gardening and bargain shopping...love watching movies with a big batch of buttery popcorn and walks in the woods! Always have a camera with me.

Favorite Books

Mostly read fiction: Nicholas Sparks and Mary Higgins Clark are my absolute faves! Like mystery, suspense and romance. Christian authors are: Karen Kingsbury, Beth Wiseman, Beverly Lewis,Kathy Herman, Lori Wicks, Terese Hale and Francine Rivers :)

Likes and collectibles

Gardening deco (sunflowers, watering cans, birdhouses,bugs, etc...), cards & stationery, journals, office supplies (post-its any size, unique paper clips, push pins, colored gel ink pens esp. red/green, stickers).

I really appreciate all things homemade and the talent that it takes to create :) I especially love altered or upcycled itmes focusing on reduce,reuse, and recycle!! (aprons from skirts, or pillow shams ,head bands made from men's ties, totes made from anything, PC's from greeting cards or fabric scraps...etc..) Sewing items (any threads, buttons, fabrics , scraps are fun:)

Can never have too many windchimes!!!

Kitchen items I like are: seasonal dish towels, pot holders, seasonal paper napkins (beverage or dinner size),seasonal sprinkles, magnets, I can use anything that is a bread making tool or themed. I currently work in an elementary school cafeteria so if you find items that say "lunch lady" on them I would LOVE it!!

Drinks: hot chocolate (any flavor), Individual sugar free drink packets (like crystal light...NO TEA flavors!!)

Dislikes

Not too picky...just don't drink TEA or coffee.(hot chocolate lover...any flavor)!! and hot cider in the fall especially :)

Favorite Crafts

Paper crafts, sewing and upcycling.

Any items, kits or samples of projects that I can use for crafting with my grands ages 8, 6 and 3.

Favorite Movies

Collect all Nicholas Sparks movies , Like comedy , Holiday , romantic, and suspense,action. Kevin Costner is my favorite actor and Mare Winningham and Sandra Bullock are my favorite actresses!! Some wishes in this category would be The Blind Side, The Proposal.

Favorite colors

My favorite colors are green and yellow (springy colors). I decorate seasonal so if you are in a swap during a specific holiday think seasonal (ie..Feb. hearts, Mar. St. Pat's, April, Easter...) Really just have fun with me year round and change it up!!! :)

Thrift Store faves

Love doilies, jewelry (wire pierced earrings, bracelets and necklaces), tote bags, used books, wind chimes, owl items, bug items (dragon flies will get you a heart!), bird themed, and gardening deco, kitchen items (dish towels, cloths and pot holders), patriotic, roosters and sunflowers :) all seasons. .. snowman vs, santa, harvest vs.spooky.. Love CHRISTIAN THEMED anything (note cards, PC's, books, quotes, calendars,memo pads,stickers,magazines).I may think of more later :)

**ALWAYS**

Comment: Charlene, thank you for the postcard of the cacti. I love them. Our spring has gone, there wasn't one this year, it was cold and miserable. Now to look at the weather for the next 10 days, you might think we are in summer. It is going to be in the high 80's. Shirley
