About Me

About me:

I love nature, thinking, pondering, wondering, being filled with awe.

I love the smell of fresh brewed coffee, warm toast, GINGERBREAD, lilacs, lily of the valley, ocean breezes, and spring rain.

I enjoy going on serendipitous rides, and poking through used bookstores, old general stores, thrift stores and dollar stores.

I am 62, married for 25 wonderful years to my true soulmate (who happens to also be an artist), and together we share a home with 2 delightful Pomeranians.

I am a Rabbi, a writer, and a knitter/knitting designer. I have dabbled in many artistic endeavors throughout the decades.

I used to be very active here on Swap Bot, when it first began. When my craft of choice changed to knitting, I started spending most of my time on Ravelry and less and less here on Swap Bot.

I recently decided to return to Swap Bot and look for some fun swaps.

Favorite Crafts


Fairy Gardening



I can always use...

  1. used COZY mystery books (nothing gory, goth, vampire, thriller, or too real)

  2. used cook books/magazines

  3. dark chocolate

  4. knitting supplies (needles, yarn, magazine, etc.)

  5. dollhouse/fairy garden miniatures

  6. sewing supplies (fabric, thread, pattern, magazine, book, etc.)

I love to decorate my home, and my taste is very colorful, whimsical, and artistic.

I DON'T DO CHRISTMAS! But I loves me some happy, colorful snow people and gingerbread people, too.

I also like to decorate the house with seasonal garlands...... spring-ish things for spring, kites and beach and ocean-y things for summer, harvest-y and leaf-y things for autumn, and snow people, gingerbread people, tiny sweaters and mittens and hats for winter. Just nothing that looks/says Christmas, but anything that's GENERICALLY WINTER IS FINE.

Please do NOT send:

Do NOT send:

Beauty goods such as make up or lotions or chapstick

Items with a heavy scent or perfume


Christian items

Country/primitive/americana style type stuff Anything that smells of cigarette smoke

Favorite colors and themes

For fabrics, I adore: LITTLE BIRDIES, OWLS, SCOTTY DOGS, CATS, HEDGEHOGS, PENGUINS, FAIRIES, WOODLAND FORESTS, GNOMES, chickens, and almost anything food/fruit, coffee, tea, chocolate related.

I love winter themes like snowflakes, snow folks, gingerbread people and such!

Obviously, as a Rabbi, I don't do Christmas, Halloween, Easter, or July 4th/Americana themes.

Colors I love:
PURPLE, teal, deeply saturated jewel tones

Fabrics I don't care much for: mosty anything "dark" or "primitive" or "country" or americana or 4th of July/flag-themed. I also don't do Christmas and Halloween themes.

junemoon rated for IMAGINE A DAY IN PARIS SWAP on Nov 5, 2009
Comment: This is such a generous package I'm totally blow away, just lovely, lovely stuff. And if you hadn't written "Imiaginary trip" I'd be sure you spent at least a summer in Paris to have everything down to perfectly. I spent a great half hour enjoying everything except how hard it was to get through the tape and wrappings to the goodies.
Response: Glad you enjoyed the box, even though it was a challenge to get into. I used more tape than usual to keep water out of the box in case the USPS left it in the rain, as has been done to me.

Thanks for the cute house fairy blanket! :) It was a special, unexpected treat in the mail. Pins a star to your shirt I really appreciate your thoroughness and thoughtfulness in hosting Clothes For Your House Fairies.

Thank you for sending the Hippy fabric. I didn't expect it from the Swap Hostess, so I was delighted to find it in my mail today!

Wanted to leave a comment for 'purplemorgan' to say what a wonderful "Angel" she is! Back in March, she sent me two beautiful crocheted butterflies (a bookmark and a mat) for the "Butterflies are Free" swap, and they were beautiful. I wish I could give her a heart, but as she was posing as an "Angel" I'm not able to rate her. However, I'm rating her here in the comment section to say she was a great Angel! You'll be blessed if she's ever given your name....a great swapper!

Thank you again, purplemorgan! :)
