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.

Favorite Music

Current playlist:

1) Savage Garden - Truly Madly Deeply 2) Will Young - Evergreen 3) Loreen - Heal 4) Kate Ryan - Voyage Voyage 5) Dragan Perovic - Moja vilo 6) Vlado Georgiev - Iskreno 7) Invasion ASOT 550 - Anthem 8) Milo Bice - Sanjam tvoje usne 9) Armin van Buuren - Imagine (the Remixes)

Favorite quotes

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." -Albert Einstein


"...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

"You can safely assume that you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do." - Ann Lammont

"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society." Mark Twain

"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine." Thomas Jefferson

Comment: Thank you so much for the great PCs you chose for this swap. I really like them all and wish I could pick one over the rest as my favorite but that isn't the case. . . I really do like them all equally. Thanks too for the great bookmark and the great Christmas-y frame. . . you went overboard!!!

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!
