About Me

My name is Julie Happy and I live in Jacksonville, Florida.

My last name is Happy, and I am! But, I cry on everything! music, movies, cartoons and even McDonalds commercials. ( just ask my friends who dare go see a movie with me and my towel )

Married to Mr. Happy ;) We own a boring composites business, but sleeping with the boss has its perks!

I love living in Florida and so I love vintage Florida anything, especially things about Weeki Wachee Springs and the Weeki Wachee mermaids,Silver Springs and Johnny Weismueller as Tarzan.

We have just decided to purchase a "vacation" home in Montana near the Glacier National Park. Looking forward to decorating a different home and a different backyard view

I love southern food ( not exclusively ) grits and greens and country fried steak, yum yum so I can't eat it often! I cook like a pro, try new recipes weekly.

Favorite Music

Israel Kamakawiwoʻole, UB40 and Ska , Phantom of the Opera,Gypsy Kings, aboriginal music. PANDORA!

Favorite Books

Jane Eyre is my favorite book ever! abridged ,unabridged love them all

I also loved the Notebook and The First Ladies Detective Agency and Chocolat.

I read all of the Harry Potters and loved all of them and the movies. Best bonding with my kids ever as they all 3 loved them.

Favorite Movies

The Whale Rider is probably my favorite movie. If you have not seen this movie, stop, find it and be amazed. There is a reason Keisha Castle-Hughes was nominated for an Oscar!

Lagaan, Chocolat, Jane Eyre ( with William Hurt ) Rabbit Proof Fence, Full Monty, Something New ( my movie I watch to cheer me up when I rarely need it ), Beauty Shop, all the Harry Potters!

Movie alert** Saw the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel wow! Top of my list now! It is also a book.

Favorite Television

not a ton of tv, but I love the Voice, Fixer Upper, Cooking shows.

Favorite Crafts

collage ATC's , that sadly is it. Can't draw, can't paint, can't sew, really can't do things like crochet or knit! I really wish I had skills, I have lots of ideas but just can't make them come to fruition, but I will keep on trying. Maybe I will meet someone on here who "get" me. pointers welcome.

I have 8 acres with a ridiculous amount of weeds with some really cool plants stuck here and there. My two favorite plants are a Banana Magnolia that smells like banana pudding and my lemon grass.

About Me

my husband took me to Australia and it was simply wonderful.... we went to the outback, alice springs, brisbane, great barrier reef! I rode a camel, hugged a roo and swam in the reef.

also got to go to New Zealand. Wow! In two weeks we went from the top to the bottom! It is a pretty amazing country. Very beautiful! Saw and ate many new things! Went ot a maori hangi ( feast ) so fun!

pet peeves

The only thing I dislike is mean spirited people,people who try to intimidate you with religion or shove it down your throat, anything political and above all any kind of prejudice !

dislikes

I hate to be picky and petty so I won't be too picky however I will say I am not into cutesy things, no goth no religious please. I guess I really love vintage and romantic!

i collect what????

One thing I have in my front yard, inbetween my front porch steps is a three tier little flower bed and I collect "broken fairies" . I have been collecting them a few years now and I have a nice amount. Some are rusty, some have a broken wing, or a cracked face. I just love my fairies , so if anyone has a broken fairy, and they don't want to throw it away..... I know a great place for it to go and make new friends. I will even send you a picture of your fairy in its new home.

and i also collect camels :)

Comment: Very funny, but did you know that back in the day the "colored" bathrooms where just that, a board out behind the building with holes. I read that in a book recently. Funny card, but said about real history.

Comment: I love the birds on both of the cards. The vintage is very pretty. I am learning a lot about this ATC thing also. The extra goodies are very nice and I am sure there will be a swap that will fit these. We have a pair of Grosbeak's that have been coming to our water supply for birds. They are so pretty. We don't see those that often in TN. Have a happy day.
Response: thank you for your nice comments! Hope we are in another swap together!

Just had to comment about Silver Springs...I went there when I was like 8! The glass bottom boat was awesome, and kinda scary lol... I lived in Palm Bay, FL for a few of my childhood years. :)
