About Me

Now to a fun filled look into my world!

I am a glam goth pink and spooky gal, with a huge collection of clothes, shoes, purses, jewelry, hats, stationary, yarn and books.

Subculture fashion is my favorite! Going anywhere from super gothic, to punk rock, to glam rock, to rockabilly, to psychobilly and to pink cutesey lolita.

Some of my hobbies are letter writing, reading (sci fi and the classics), crocheting, dancing, shopping and stamp carving.

I am a princess in my spooky cool castle with my prince charming and we are so happily ever after!

Favorite Movies

I am in LOVE with the TCM channel, old movies from the 1920's-1950's make me so happy. The clothes, the style, the refinement, the actors and actresses, the singing and dancing, the magical sets they created - all of it adds up to a world of glamour that this world lacks in this day and age.

Anything with Bettie Davis, Marlene Deitrich, Claudette Colbert, Joan Crawford, Doris Day, Rosalind Russel, Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire, Esther Williams, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, James Cagney, Jimmy Stewart, Marilyn Monroe or any other glorious gentleman and ladies that graced the screen!

more current films i have enjoyed - Pans Labrynth, Whos That Girl, Desparately Seeking Susan, Vampires Kiss, Army of Darkness, Two Weeks Notice, Cabaret, Titus, Chicago, The Count of Monte Cristo, Cry Baby, Hairspray, Fando & Lis, Edward Scissorhands, Bettlejuice, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Il Postino, Cinema Paradiso, Old Boy, Lady Vengance, The Lord of the RIngs, Love me if you Dare, Stardust, V is for Vendetta and A Very Long Engagement.

Favorite Television

RuPauls Drag Race (SHARON NEEDLES!!!!), Once Upon A Time, Project Runway, makeover shows (everyone should get a makeover!), SHERLOCK (!!!!!), Downton Abbey and various trashy reality TV shows..housewives etc.

Favorite Crafts

Crochet! Stamp Carving, Sewing (very little skill in that one but its fun to try!), Baking, jewelry making and various other fun little projects!

Favorite Music

Goth, Industrial, Synthpop, New Wave, Rockabilly and Psychobilly. Some favorites in no particular order - Orange Sector- Leaether Strip- Leichtmatrose- Faderhead- Morrisey- Din{a}tod- The Cramps- Sasquatch and the Sickabillys- Doris Day- The Andrews Sisters- Cake- The Yeah Yeah Yeahs- The Sounds- Prince- Madonna- Red Flag- She Wants Revenge- Radiohead- Ours- Garbage- The Retrosic- Wolfsheim- Covenant- Cinephile- Rasputina- oh i could go on and on and on...

Favorite Books

Authors such as ~ Jane Austin, Neil Gaiman, Simon R Greene, Kim Harrison, Laurell K Hamilton, Franz Kafka, Edith Wharton, Sharon Shinn, George Elliot, Francesca Lia Block, Ayn Rand and Linda Goodman to name a few. Books ~ Witch Baby, Blonde, Gone With the Wind, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Neverwhere, Strange Candy, Love Signs, How to spot a Bastard by his Star Sign, The Secret Language of Birthdays, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Atlas Shrugged. i really DON'T like Charlaine Harrisons vampire series, but i love most vampire books!


Things i would be oh-so-happy to receive-

Kawaii stationary, ATCs, Handmade Cards, diecuts, stamped images on colored paper, paper scraps, coupons, deco tape, stickers, Calligraphy (pens, nibs & markers), fabulous yarn, vintage photos and ads, reusable shopping bags, notepads with pretty paper, southwest landscape photography, steampunk and goth artwork, rubber stamps OOLONG TEA and cool fabric.

I also see all these crafty items here that I don't know about - so if anyone would like to make me a dotee, matchbox, whimsy jar or other fun little craft i DO LOVE HANDMADE!

When you get to Prague, go to the top of the castle first thing in the morning, and get a ticket to see the whole castle. When Beth and I went we loitered as we climbed to the castle, and didn't have time to see more than a few sights in the castle. Next time...

Hello Sara, and happy fall!
I got your postcard today in the mail, I have the last one you sent tucked neatly in a manilla envelope so I don't forget to bring it in the car with us when we drive down to CA. We'll be leaving here on the 17th so somewhere around then I will hunt down some sort of excellent postcard(s) to send your way. In the mean time, I hope all is going well for you! My apologies for the delay (:
