About Me

I am married with one son. We live in the town that I grew up in.

I really enjoy spending time in my garden and preserving the vegetables we grow. I am learning about homesteading and self-sufficiency. I am learning to make my own soap, herbal remedies, and learning about beekeeping.

*** If I owe you a swap and you have not received it, please PM me before rating me as I would be happy to re-send ***

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music. I mostly listen to country music, but also classic rock and some pop.

Some of my favorite artists are George Strait, R Carlos Nakai, Sawyer Brown, and Otis Redding.

Favorite Books

My favorite series of books is the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton. I have tried to read other vampire series but I'm not crazy about them. I like historical books - I love reading about history.

Favorite Movies

My all time favorite movies are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and McLintock!.

In general, I like romantic comedy movies the most - ones where I don't have to think too much. I do NOT like scary movies.

Favorite Television

My favorite shows right now are Blindspot, Scorpion, and Vikings.

Favorite Crafts

I used to think I loved scrapbooking, but I think I've determined I just like to collect the pretty papers and supplies. I really enjoy paper based crafts. I decorate my planner and am working on even using the planner after I decorate it LOL.

I like just about any kind of crafts, except floral arranging. I never got into that.


Collector's Spoons; Post Cards; Blue Willow plates; Tom Clark gnomes; Cut glass bowls


I am open to trying any variety of tea. That being said, my favorites so far are the herbal teas - mostly minty or citrus flavors.

If you have access to Twinings Raspberry & Dragon Fruit tea, I love it...and would take it for all tea bags in a swap, even if you're supposed to send different ones...it's that good...

Postcard Wishes

I prefer my cards naked and stamped.

I love ALL postcards I receive...however, if you happen to have one of the following, I would really appreciate it...

John Wayne; Old West of the US; Lighthouses(from anywhere); Hummingbirds; Snowmen; Jeep; Homesteading; Rural; Garden; Farm; Bees / Beekeeping; Recipe - recipe is printed on the card; Herbs; Gnomes


I am in zone 7. North/Middle Georgia - in the same zone as Atlanta.

I love any kind of vegetable and grow new varieties all of the time. I save my own seeds when possible. I love to experiment in my garden.

I also love perennial flowers...as flowers attract bees, which pollinate my garden! We currently have 7 honey bee hives.

We are starting our second year having backyard chickens - we currently have 5 Rhode Island Reds and 4 Cinnamon Queens.

PaperMorsels rated for Quick 20 stickers week 5 USA on May 6, 2017
Comment: Wow! Thanks so much for all the stickers! That was a big surprise! These are so cute and will be so much fun to use and share! Where did you find so many cute ones? Take good care!!
Response: I'm glad you like them. I think the majority are from the books at Michaels. I hope you get a lot of use out of them! Have a great day!
Comment: Thank you for the FDC. It is weirdly unique. The envelope is plain/blank but the cancellation mark is awesome. Do they sell the envelope like that in the post office on the first day of issue or did you self-stamp the cancellation mark on your personal envelope? :)

Just checking in because you haven't been participating in Adventures of the Traveling Postcard in a few rounds. Are you still interested in participating? If so, there is a round posted right now! If not, could you please send it back to me so I can get it back into rotation?

Thank you Annie
