My Etsy Faves
After two years living a quieter life on the frontier of Wyoming, I'm back in Florida with a dog and two cats. I'm a pierced, tattooed librarian interested in rural renaissance and leaving a smaller footprint. I love anything library related: postcards, bookmarks, stickers, old library cards, you name it!
I enjoy growing organic herbs and veggies and butterfly gardening; camping; baking; reading fiction, non-fiction and memoirs; natural soaps; being a Mac user; National Parks, especially Yellowstone; avoiding housework; traveling; learning; Kliban's cats; Boynton's farm animals; drinking red wines; visiting bookstores and coffee shops; kayaking; cross-country skiing; being in nature; being around animals; watching movies; listening to music; going to museums; Bookcrossing and PaperBackSwap; geocaching; scavenger hunts; hanging clothes to line dry; friends; photography; collecting memories; and correspondence.
I adore autumn and have an addiction to paper.
