About Me

There are so many incredible people who are involved on this site, and I love "meeting" you all through swaps!

Meanwhile, even though I remember when the Beatles were young, I continue to learn about life, about other people, and about God. I can tell you life is exciting, amazing and intensely interesting, with lots of laughter in the mix.

I live in the US, and I love to travel. I also love to hear about what it's like where you live. And I love nature - I am fascinated with the mysteries and power of nature, as well as the amazing scenery around the globe!

Water is one of my loves, including water scenes, water sports, and water inhabitants.

Likes Washi tape, funny sayings, magnet-backed paper pads, post-it notes, vintage items & cut-outs, pens, anything that lights up, cool stationery and unique paper, Geocaching magnets, coins or micros!

I also collect unique coffee mugs and I LOVE old children's books.

Postcards -- animals, water, Paris, famous places or artwork by famous artists, weird natural formations, national parks, oddities, & scenery. Not crazy about ad postcards, or postcards with only designs on them. I like my PCs in an envelope.

Music classical, oldies rock, blues, and Caribbean.

Art I love artists with a twist, like Escher, Munch, and Dali, but I also like Monet and Rembrandt. I also love other peoples' ATCs but I'm not very good at making them myself.

Edibles I think milk chocolate is best with nuts. I also like black licorice, almonds, pecans, macadamias, Brazil nuts, pistachios and hazelnuts. Also, Good 'n Plenty and Hot Tamales.

I'm a tea hag - British Breakfast, Earl Grey, Chai, Spice and Coconut.

Reading is my passion and I love mysteries, crime-solving and espionage - the truer, the better!

Comment: Thanks for your family & friends women collages. :) Indeed it looks like you've had lots of fun. I love the song of the orioles and was happy to hear them again this year! They can hide themselves very good, never saw one.
Response: Hope you see an oriole some day! Yes, I have a big family.You are welcome!

Comment: Thanks, loved your letter and the balloon ride. You didn't tell age but I think I'm older than you are (I've got 4 great-grandchildren already). And never went up in a hot air balloon.
Response: Thanks for the kind words - I'm 72 but I feel younger. Maybe some day you will get to go!

Comment: Thank you so much for your wonderful note. I LOVE it and have read it a few times already and will read it again when I need a little pick-me-up. Thank you also for the postcard. I love sand dollars and the "legend" about them. I will be praying for your daughter and for you. Hang in there. ☺🙏❤

Comment: Your letter was a joy to read! My son's birthday is May 26th, you know, Memorial Day weekend, when barbecues and pool parties and picnics abound in southern California, right? Not this year, it rained, was freezing (by my standards) and people remained firmly indoors. Thankfully I did not plan his party for that weekend, or else it would have been a soggy disappointment. Thank you for thinking of my hubby with the Vader & Son pc, he thoroughly enjoys those, and the extra ATCs.
Response: You are so welcome! So sorry you were housebound because of the rain and cold! We have been to two weddings in CA around Memorial Day. The first, in Humbolt County was a muddy mess finishing with a downpour at reception time. The second was in Yosemite and it snowed! We all froze! Thanks so much for the note and the heart!!

Comment: Hi Charlotte. Thanks so much for the cards as well as the extras. House on the Rock sounds absolutely fascinating. And you're right. I need to move there for the rain, I really do!
Response: It's raining again today.... Thanks so much for the kind words and the heart!!

Comment: (Sigh!) I have rated earlier, but the rating hasn't held. I have a sort of love-hate relationship with John Grisham. Good to know that "The Reckoning" is good! Zoo Nebraska sounds really interesting! I'm glad it satisfied your curiosity.
Response: Yes, I have been disappointed with a few of John Grisham's books. I feel like I'm taking a chance every time I start one of his new books. Zoo Nebraska was a real surprise and I was glad I read it. Thanks so much for the rating and the heart!!

Comment: Thank you for the nice selection of cards and the extra! Im glad there is no flooding there. I live by Lake Michigan and now its rising fast and places are flooded at the lakeshore. Im hoping it stays back. We just keep getting more rain though. All the best! Thank you.
Response: You're welcome! I am pretty tired of rain!! Have a great day! Thanks so much for the heart!

Comment: Thanks for good cards and your letter. Love that pc of the haboob dust storm - never heard of it!
Response: You're welcome! I didn't know they happened in Arizona. I saw one in Arabia (1891) in the movie "Hildago". Hildago is the horse's name!

Thank you for the lovely stationery set you sent me for the ISS Flat Surprise Envelope Tag. It's just perfect for me, and at just the right time of year, too. :)
Have a beautiful day.

I came across this and since you like water ~ thought I'd share :) I used to live on a boat, so water is vital to me as well...

It seems we are both of an age! and I love this quote as every day I realize this is true more and more :) Remember, "we don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing."

AARI: Positive Comment

Hi! It's so cool that you love nature, I do too! Do you have some favourite places you like to be around/go to?

Also, your profile is lovely and you seem like a wonderful human being!

Have a marvellous week!

x Jess

Thanks so much for the Darth Vader & Son postcards you sent me for the PH Postcard Tag. I happened to be wearing my Star Wars T-shirt when they arrived! They're such fun & it was sweet of you to include an extra in your dazzling hand made envie as well.
