About Me

Hi! I live in a tiny town outside of Seattle Washington. Living here feels like camping everyday. Every morning when I walk outside I think I should be having S'mores for breakfast!

I find I am full of contradictions when it comes to what I like.

I love;

Americana and all things Japanese

Hello Kitty and Steampunk

Victorian and Mid-Century

Books and my Kindle App

Frida and Bob Ross (for his hypnotic presence...)

Homemade and Store Bought

Disco and British New Wave

I love Iconic stuff like the Union Jack, the Golden Gate bridge, Maneki Neko and more!

My Favorite countries are England, Scotland, Ireland, India, Switzerland and Japan.

My favorite styles are Art Deco, Art Nouveau and the International Arts and Crafts Movement from the 1880's to the 1930's.

I love tea and my favorite teas are STRONG and SMOOTH! No herbals for me!

I am a water baby and I could live and work in a swimsuit, barefoot, in the water if I could swing it!

I like my postcards beat up in the mail so don't worry about and envelope for me!

I love to send postcards and bookmarks. I tend to have a million books going at once and use both to mark my place! I love taking pictures and want to incorporate that into my swap-bot experience somehow.

I do pledge to rate quickly as possible. My hope is that whatever I put in the mail for someone will make them smile and be happy they opened their mailbox. If you don't receive something from me please let me know...I will generally try to send my swap out asap.

I am so excited to hang with you swap-bots!

Thanks for having me! Tricia

Favorite Books

I love non-fiction best but I am drawn to ridiculously well written books of any genre.

Favorite Movies

Guardians of the Galaxy, District 9, Bull Durham, Desk Set, An Education

Favorite Television

I love writers and I love comedy so The Inbetweeners, Flight of the Conchords, Raising Hope and I loved Arrested Development and My Name is Earl.

Favorite Crafts

I am a bookmark and post card girl. I have sewn and quilted but dabbling in the paper arts now. I enjoy photography and keep threatening to get back into it! Maybe a good swap will motivate me!

My Life

I lead a charmed life; I home school my only child, (15 year old boy), my husband and I have been married for 29 years and we all live in a 60 year old farm house on acreage with a black cat and a Mini Schnauzer. Charmed indeed!

I can't live without...

I can't leave the house without my iPhone, sunglasses and my re-usable Starbucks Iced Coffee cup w/straw. I don't know why but I have to have water with me at all times and I'm seem to be too lazy to open a water bottle!

I love Pandora Radio. I totally love choosing an artist that exemplifies their genre and era and listening to their equivalents I didn't think of! My favorite stations are; KC & the Sunshine Band, Andy Gibb, Estelle, and Warren G.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely big postcard. Looks like a lovely place :) and I like the sound of jacuzzis in every room.
Comment: I loved the bookmark you made for me!! It's wonderfull!! What's the name of the book you named? Thank you very much for the informacion about that nice hotel, but it's a pity that it's not really in Chile, but in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Only its name is Chile and casualty we were there this year, but outside... It's s very kind of you to send me the info in spanish. I hope you get my swap soon and like it as much as I like yours!
