About Me

I'm Ash...

Odd duck. Unsocial. I am basically obsessed with pumpkins, and am planning my (quite large) pumpkin patch for next year ^.^ Nothing is more satisfying than growing your own food and, most importantly, pumpkins!

ALLERGIES! I have severe peanut/nut allergies! So please be careful what you send. This goes for food items as well as many cosmetics and lotions! Please under no circumstances send me food or cosmetic products that do not have a list of ingredients to check! Anything without an ingredient list for me to verify that it is safe will be thrown away, and I hate to do that.

No Thanks...

A few relevant things I would prefer you not send would include...

  • Religious Items!
  • Anything with peanuts/nuts (allergies)
  • Food items with no ingredient list
  • Stuffed Animals..have too many
  • ATCs (I don't collect them)
  • Loose kawaii papers and bits
  • Knick knacks that just sit on a shelf. They're nice and all, but they serve no purpose and I just don't have the room for any more. This is with exception to interesting Halloween decorations, of course.
  • I love scrapbooking supplies, however I have so much at this point and am very behind on my scrapbooking. It's fine to send some, but please don't make it the main item.
  • umm...

Sweets & Food

I love gummy/jelly candies, taffies, nice sweet stuff. I love Maynards candies, especially Swedish Berries.

Cherry, strawberry, blue raspberry, peach, and grape are my personal favorite flavors.

I don't often care for orange flavored candy, and rather dislike lemon and lime flavors. I hate coconut, and I do not want anything with alcohol.

I have severe peanut and nut allergies, please do not send food items that do not have a list of ingredients!

Favorite Music

I adore oldies and psychedelic sounds.

The Beatles, The Misfits, Billy Idol, Generation X, Alice Cooper, The Cure, The Hollies, The Kinks, Velvet Underground, Joy Division, The Smiths, Depeche Mode, The Clash, Nine Inch Nails, Brain Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels...

Not many favourite bands, mostly just lots of favourite songs. I enjoy oldies, psychedelic, and other randoms.

Favorite Colours

Purple, orange and green are my top three. I also love turquoise, aqua, and mint green.

My favourite kitchen colours are turquoise and aqua (my dream kitchen colours), and orange. Yellow and green are my next favourites. My least favourite kitchen colour is probably red, mostly because it seems so...everywhere to me.

I love fun, happy colours...but I also love subtle vintage feels :)

Looking For & Private Swaps

I'm open to private swaps if I'm able to.

There are a few things I really look out for...

  • Old Halloween/fall/pumpkin ephemera, including children’s book pages, fairytale looking pieces, etc.
  • Pumpkin/Pumpkin Pie Can Labels (not print outs) for a cute kitchen art idea I had..
  • Shop Bought Halloween Postcards
  • Halloween themed kitchen items
  • A 'Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Tea tin...just the tin. Adorable. We don't have Trader Joe's here, otherwise I'd stock up =P
  • Vintage Ice Cream & Cake Related Goods
  • Pre-1970's Fashion & Decor Magazines
  • Pre-1960's Baking Books/Booklets with color illustrations/photos
  • Cotton Candy & Popcorn Bags/Boxes
  • 1960's Counter Culture & anti-war Photos & Ephemera
  • Antique flower or romance postcards
  • Halloween plastic "blowmolds" (old or new, makes no difference) as they are rather difficult to find here. Also love other Halloween light up decorations, I adore decorating for that spooky holiday!

I adore vintage food packaging. I have a few old ice cream boxes and would love more! I'm also really looking for some vintage cake boxes. Things like that make my heart flutter.

Anything from my likes list is awesome. If you think you have something to swap in exchange for something I might be able to get up here in Canada, please do let me know, I'll see what I can do :)

Favorite Movies

I adore old movies, especially romantic comedy dramas along with old teen movies, 60's psychedelic flicks, and classic midnight movies. I love films that make my heart flutter or are just right out strange.

Some of my favorites, in no particular order...

Eraserhead, Stranger Than Fiction, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Strawberry Statement, Night of the Living Dead, Amelie, The Brave Little Toaster, Cry Baby, Beetlejuice, Sleepy Hollow, A Clockwork Orange, Gidget, Hocus Pocus, Cactus Flower, The Graduate, Control, Factory Girl, Wristcutters, Rock Pretty Baby, The Boy Friend, The Virgin Suicides, Beach Party, Don't Knock The Rock, Life Begins At 17, Monster House, Breakfast At Tiffanys, American Beauty, One Hundred and One Dalmatians (cartoon), Benny & Joon, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Love-Ins, Period Of Adjustment, The Orgasm Diaries, Edward Scissorhands, Alice In Wonderland (cartoon), Head, Warm Bodies, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, Crazy Stupid Love, Broken Flowers, Fear and Loathing, Penelope, Pumpkin, Donnie Darko, The Orgasm Diaries, Fight Club, The Addams Family, Barefoot, Some Kind Of Wonderful, (500) Days Of Summer, Hotel Transylvania, Safety Not Guaranteed, Electrick Children, Before I Disappear...

I probably missed so many and this will get outdated pretty quickly, but that gives you an idea...perhaps.

Just a note...

I rate within a day of receiving each swap in the mail, and appreciate when others rate promptly as well. I get nervous when others do not rate as I worry that they haven't received or it has gotten lost. Timely ratings are appreciated.

If for any reason you have any problems, please PM me and it will be worked out. I ALWAYS send out my swaps, so if something hasn't gotten to you it's because of the postal system. Message me and I will re-send. Thanks!

Response: I'm so glad you like it! We were very lucky to have Halloween-esque stamps last year and this year, normally Canada Post doesn't have anything like that, so I was happy to be able to use them for my Halloween mail this year :) Thank you so much for the rating and the heart!
