About Me

I am easily amused and also pretty easy to please. I have a soft spot for animals, especially kittens. I love colors in pink, blue and purple ranges, especially together/combinations. I like reading witty, personal stuff. When I'm in the mood, I like to go to junk shops, thrift stores and yard sales to get things -- locally and on trips, too. I tend to lean left but try to stay open-minded. It does not bother me that my friends and I often have different opinions. I believe in live/let live as long as nobody's getting hurt. PLEASE: no glitter, thanks!

Comment: Thank you so very, very much for all of these treasures, Lou! I’m getting goosebumps going through all the vintage postage stamps - I’ve never seen the Francis Scott Key or Newspaperboys before - am definitely going to Google search that article you mentioned about “These Immortal Chaplains” & WOW! What a beautiful William M. Harnett stamp of painted musical instruments. You’re so right about these old stamps having so many beautiful details! They’re amazing. 🤩 Of course, I cherish the Boy Scouts stamps! They’re my favorite because the Scouts are all smiling at Lady Liberty and one’s saluting her. It takes me to another time, when a tiny bit of paper on mail meant so very much because it was the only means of communicating with loved ones from afar. Oh my goodness, and how can I fail to mention the “Women in Our Armed Forces” stamps!!! Amazing 😍 I am overjoyed! 😁 You made my millennium!
