PLEASE - NO friendship books or "anything" bags that need to be sent on.
PLEASE - NO loose glitter or confetti.
In trying to set a good example for my grands, I try to substitute "carp" for the word "crap" as an expletive when I am frustrated. Now, I find that to join a certain crappy group, I need to have the word "crap" in my profile. So, here it is --- "I LOVE CRAP" and I buy a lot of it from flea markets, thrift stores, estate sales, auctions, and antique shops. Then, I collect all I find on floors, in washers and dryers, and any wastebaskets that are available to me. Yep, I LOVE CRAP. (LOL)
A great-grandmother of two, grandmother of four, mother of four, wife to one for 51 (FIFTY-ONE) years on Feb. 16, 2015. Mama to two cats. Native Kentuckian now living in Texas.
We love antiquing and yard saleing.
Reds, Blues, and Greens and all colors in the rainbow. However, I am presently into greens. Also, really love whatever color my granddaughter's hair is when she comes to visit. First, it was hot pink , then, it was purple, next came teal .Next was fuschia and navy. Her senior year, she was green and blue striped for school. LOL Never a dull moment.
She is the mother of my now four-year-old great-granddaughter. The other granddaughter has a two-year- old daughter. How lucky am I !!! There is another granddaughter - she is only five years old. So much fun.
Country. Oldies. And anything the Statlers sing: the newspaper, phone book, dictionary, doesn't matter. Have you heard them sing the New and Old Testaments? Best sermon I have ever heard.
I also love Tennessee Ernie Ford, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Shinia Twain, Anne Murray, the Everly Brothers. and Keith Whitley. BTW - Keith is from my hometown. I could go on and on....
I love to collect: buttons (glass, plastics from the 40s and 50s, realistics, and rubber are some of my favorites,) any vintage sewing notions, thimbles (not glass), salt and pepper shakers (my oldest collection), Annalees, Furbys, and miniatures. My hubby is building my third dollhouse. Any additions for it would just be the best swap ever.
Tried and True Recipes / Family Recipes - cookbooks, Handmade anything - Unique thimbles - ATCs. and MORE buttons. Dotee dolls and art dolls are my latest fascinations.
love to upcycle. Altered anything makes my day. Any tidbits for this purpose are always a treat.
German scrap, lovely lady images, or any holiday images would all be appreciated. Tidbits and tinies suitable for ATCs and smaller art would just put me over the moon.
Cheap Stuff, I don't mean inexpensive, I mean poorly made, coming apart, tacky stuff that you wouldn't use for a quality project.
I love vintage, aged, items. Not dirty (please don't send it to me just to keep from throwing it away). Nothing smelly, I'm not allergic, but I just find it rude.
I must note here that I am not a tea drinker. Please refrain from sending me tea in any form.
I have just discovered 'zines and/or mini-zines., and while I am still a novice at making them, I would love to receive more if you care to share.
Now - favorite crafts - I love collage - I have covered picture frames with old costume jewelry, I have a stash of wine corks, shotgun shells, rusted stuff for wiring or nailing to old barnwood that we pulled from a 100 yr-old- barn. I sew, crochet, love all the paper crafts that I have tried, taught weekly craft classes at Walmart for the better part of five years. Every new craft that came in, I learned if necessary and taught to my ladies.
I love to repurpose - why use something for what it was meant for - make a face out of a bone button, use men's ties for just about anything, make "people" from game pieces (is that an art doll?). Just look at stuff until you figure out something else to do with it.
Jelly Belly jelly beans are awesome.
Please, NO candles. If they are left in the mailbox or on the porch - in this Texas heat - they melt.
Many thanks for your consideration.
FLAKERS - I promised to list these people but I hate doing it so much that I just kept putting it off. It needs to be done. They need to be exposed. So the oldest I will list is from 2008.
