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 and I 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 old cathedrals • funny sayings • Geocaching magnets, coins or micros • specialty paper • magnet-backed paper pads • vintage items & cut-outs • pens • sharpies • anything that lights up, like lasers or LEDs.

I also collect unique coffee mugs • I appreciate scrapbook or ATC supplies • washi tape • deco tape • letter sets • stickers.

Postcards -- touristy postcards from around the world; animals, water, cathedrals, weird natural formations, national parks, sports stadiums, the "biggest or best" of a region, oddities, water sports & scenery. Not crazy about ad postcards. I like naked PCs!

Music classical • oldies rock • blues • new bands • and Caribbean.

Art I love artists with a twist, like Escher, Munch, and Dali, but I also like Monet and Rembrandt.

Edibles I think milk chocolate is best with nuts. I also like black licorice • almonds • pecans • macadamias • Brazil nuts • pistachios • hazelnut.

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

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

Comment: This is by far the coolest swap I've gotten!!! I love postal stuff! I didn't read your note first and when I pulled the stamp out I thought, "this looks Postal, wonder how they got it". Then I opened the note, oh, very cool. The key is so beautiful, love the pitted, old metal. You are so lucky to own such wonderful items as stamps and keys. I have an old oak desk from the PO. My husband won a raffle and got the desk. It's gorgeous! Thank you so much for gifting me these wonderful items, I will cherish them and use them to create! 💗 📬 💗
Response: You are so welcome! I am glad you appreciate them; not everyone does! Happy swapping and thanks for the heart(s)!!!

Thank you so much for your funny horse postcard on Postcard roulette November round 2017! It makes me smile! :) We are now having little bit snow and I love it! It brings so much more light when everything is white!

You're very welcome. Even my grumpy post surgery father in law thought it was cool.

I know I already rated you for the Purple Passion ATC I hosted, but I was going through my pile of mail and sorting stuff and just noticed that the envelope and notepaper you used had the picture from my profile on it! What a great personal touch!! I am sorry I didn't notice it before (stress brain) but it was totally awesome and I wish I could give you an extra heart for it!
