About Me

Hi, my name is Mary. I'm 46 and a widow.

I was born in the old Jugoslavija (Kosovo) but have lived in the Chicago area most of my adult life. I have been participating in swaps at Postcrossing for some time and really enjoy receiving postcards.

My hobby and occupation is dressmaker. I'm always shopping for fabric and ideas at resale shops and resellers.

I will like any card you would want to send me but I do love cats, small dogs, butterflies, and birds.

"...the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped. " ~ Last Speech of Hubert H. Humphrey

I received the very beautiful photo album today. I can't thank you enough for being so kind and keeping on top of writing to me and angeling the swap. I love all the pictures and the album itself is so pretty.

P.S. thanks also for the Bat stamp (my fave!) and the old 3c stamps you used on the Mix It Up PC & Stamps envelope!
