About Me

Things I like

My current favourite colors are burgundy, rose and olive green. Other good colors are red, and gold. Oddly of late, I've had a liking for orange and pink together. I love gardening, handmade things, all things Victorian, lace, tea - especially florals like rose and jasmine, hot chocolate (prefer just chocolate flavour), tea themed pretties, shabby chic, steampunk, anime art, and roses, rose scented things. I love dotees. Fabric, cotton or recyled fancy fabrics, bits of lace, buttons, glass or stone beads all make me smile. My very favourite candy in the world is violet - and I can never find it!

Favorite Books

Like my taste in music, my taste in books is pretty eclectic, too. But I'd have to say my very favourite genre is sci-fi/fantasy. My favourite series of books ever - 'The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever' by Stephen R. Donaldson. I also enjoy courtroom and murder mysteries.

Favorite Movies

I loved the Lord of the Rings movies. I'm a big anime fan. I also love lots of old movies. Anne of Green Gables comes to mind, and all the old Christmas movies which I watch year around. My latest favourite - Avatar! I've gone to see it twice at the theatre and I have to say , its the most visually beautiful movie I have Ever seen. Loved every bit of it.

Favorite Television

So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, Legend of the Seeker, Merlin, Burn Notice, most any anime

Favorite Crafts

Sewing, embroidery, silk ribbon embroidery, crazy quilting, quilting, paper cutting, making pressed flower pictures, soap making

Favorite Music

My favourite music spans a pretty eclectic list. I love old rock and roll, opera, classical and just about anything except jazz. I collect covers of the Hendrix tune 'Little Wing' for my mp3 player.

Things I don't like

Blue food!!! (mystmaiden's Food Rule #1. Never, ever eat Blue Food!)

plastic beads - I just don't use them so they should go to someone who will use and enjoy them.

brads and eyelets - Its not that I don't like them, I just don't use them and I know they can be pricey, so please save them for someone who will not let them grow old gracefully :)

Fruit or vanilla flavoured or scented anything!

Earl Grey tea - I always wanted to like it, after all its good enough for Captain Picard, but in the end, the bergamot orange just doesn't do it for me.

I don't think I'd like kawai.

Masterbard rated for Steampunk Feather Fascinators on May 10, 2010
Comment: It took forever to get here (not myst's fault!) but it was worth the wait. One stunning, glamorous, peacocky, Victorian-inspired fascinator! In fact, so stunning I'm doing a quick swap-out of one piece of my Mad Hattress costume for my 'Alternate Worlds' Art Mingle (May 29th, in Pundang, South Korea, if anyone happens to be in the area, ha) to fit this in! Mwah mwah, kisses and hugs, Judith

Mysty, you haven't been on for a while - and have collected your first 'one' today! I'm worried about you. I've offered to 'angel' for you to try to redeem your rating, but I do hope that you are all right in body and soul. Let your friends know when you can, ok? Hugs, Judith

I received your fabric necklace today for the Sophisticated swap tag. It was definitely worth the wait. I don't know when I'll wear it yet because it's such an unusual style for me, but I'll find a special occasion :) The colors are just right for sure.

CrazyCatChick on May 15, 2010:

Thank you for the WTA #7 fun stuff! I love the Dotee and will take one over tea anyday. I needed a tea Dotee, you are such a sweetie!

Mystmaiden thank you for the lovely birthday surprise. It might have been late but at least it arrived in the birthday month. I feel very honoured to have three April wishes granted. You are amazing, thank you.
