About Me

"I have the worlds largest seashell collection. You may have seen it, I keep it spread out on beaches all over the world."...Steven Wright

"The world, as a rule, does not live on beaches..." F. Scott Fitzgerald

i love these quotes...the first because it expresses my love of shells and beaches...the second because i love the author and i am one of those who is not living on a beach..although i wish i did.... i live in a rural area north of houston south of dallas and east of austin.... lots of beautiful oaks and pines ...i once had a lovely pond lined with water lillies ...that pond is almost empty now because of the drought...(I am happy to report that all the ponds are now full including the big pond but the water lillies are gone forever) i have always enjoyed expressing myself in art and i taught art at the h.s. level... i've lived in several states and in panama for a few years...my friends, like my "shell collection," are scattered around the world... i prefer cool colors... especially teal At present i have one dog, a stray who has come to live here named Blue and a cat also a stray name either George, Lt. Fuzz, or KittyKitty ... oh and three donkeys ...Sam Houston, Jack Kennedy, and Frankie (fdr)...and two horses...tom aka stanley,,, and brownie...

••• I need to add that recently I failed to hit the "Save Ratings" bottom when rating a swap and my partner never got a rating while I thought I had rated her swap... This happened once before... So please if you do not receive a rating from me let me know ... I save all my swaps and will re-rate as soon as I find out... Thanks so much

Comment: Kathryn, this is AH-MAZING! I was worried that there might not be enough information (let alone pictures) to make this a good swap theme, but clearly there is! This poor woman...always a refugee. And her hard life shows on her face...in ways that we soft American women can't understand. My favorite part of the whole art page is the gorgeous medallion that makes your background...I adore the intricacy of Middle Eastern artwork, their tiles, and their use of color! A+ for you, my dear friend!

Comment: The atc’s and extra’s are beautiful! Thank you so much. Yes there are Snook’s here but they are spelled Snoek. Lot’s of names were “americanised” when people immigranted. Example “ Neuman became Newman. I saw on t.v. it’s super cold there! stay warm, take care!
Response: our super cold snow and freezing temperatures lasted a week...in south texas we are now so used to it...but north texas took it in stride...i loved the snow...but the cold ..not so much....thank you for your rating ...and especially for answering my question...thanks so very much...

I finally got the GOLDEN EGG - this 3 of hearts is WOW and thank you for the jam homers. Yesterday was nice and sunny. Today is cold and rainy. Guess I should have got some yard work done yesterday...

beachchicken on Nov 14, 2020:

Thank you so much for the completed jam! I adored your beach chicken story! I always wonder what they are thinking when they are looking at me.

Thank you for sending home the Technology JAM. You're right, the film making items were a great addition.

beachchicken on Oct 25, 2020:

Kathryn, Thanks for sending home the jam with the blue bird you added, I really love the way it turned out!

supersquirrel on Oct 21, 2020:

Received the homers and the supply of 3 of hearts in that nice yellow envelope today. It should be illegal for me to have so many 3 of hearts cards. So many decks ruined...but thank you 🐿️
