About Me

Hello: Swap Bot friends, I live on the south end of Vancouver Island BC Canada. "My Etsy Store" above is my wish-list...

Updated Postcard info: The absolute worst mail delivery service seems to be between Canada and the United States !!!

I find the amount of non-raters is a continual thorn in my side and I am quite discouraged with Swap Bot. I have recently joined Postcrossing and I look forward to not having to track others down for a simple rating. Thank you to those who take the time and are considerate enough to rate. You are the best!!!

For POSTCARD SWAPS : please send naked(stamped&posted)... ...Please put the date on the PC... If you dont put the swap name on: I cannot rate you! I take a digital photo of all PCs I send out, front and back views.Please dont send me homemade PC's unless the swap is for a homemade PC. Thank you.

NON-RATERS: Please just give a rating already... "The rating system is meant to help keep people honest and fair with their swaps.

Comment: I love, love, love this Bonne-Biche postcard! Thank you!!! And, I noticed the wonderful stamps (purple and sunflower). Hugs!
Response: Hi Chandra thank you for the rating with heart I'm glad you liked this PC. In 1920, at the tender age of 19, Chicago-born artist Virginia Frances Sterrett received her first commission from The Penn Publishing Company to illustrate Old French Fairy Tales — a collection of works from the nineteenth-century French author, Comtesse de Ségur (Sophie Fedorovna Rostopchine). Shortly after completing the work Sterrett was diagnosed with tuberculosis. She would manage a few other commissions, including illustrations for Nathaniel Hawthorne's Tanglewood Tales the following year, and for a 1928 edition of Arabian Nights, but her failing health meant she could only work in short bursts. She eventually passed away in 1931, at the age of 30. Happy 2020 peace love light

Thank you for the RAK postcard of the Pyrex bowls. It was very interesting to read!

AmyMarie on Oct 20, 2019:

Oh Wow! Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful astronomy stamps and the airmail labels sent in a fun airmail envelope with more great stamps. I am so grateful for your generosity. I'd give you 5 hearts if I could.

Hello! The resend for International Cut & Paste made it. It is an awesome card.

Keep your chin up!

THANK YOU so much for this RAK card!!! It's incredible. It's so ME. I can't stop looking at all the tiny things. These turtle (tortoise?) stamps are so beautiful, too. One of my favorite things to do near here is visit the turtles that swim around in a pond. This has been a difficult week and your card really brightened it, thank you :):):) Happy swappping and happy summer :):):)

A RAK! Cool. My first. And you read my profile. Thanks for sending me one of my favourite (yet confusing -- the difference between tartan and plaid) things.

Itti on Jul 10, 2019:

Just wondered if, given your username, you might be interested in joining our reptile & amphibian group, Scales 'n' Tails. I've sent you an invite just in case, no worries if it's not your thing!
