About Me

Hello! My name is Trisha. I live on a small produce farm in rural Indiana with my boyfriend. It keeps us busy! I love to spend my spare time making things, reading, thrifting, and swapping.

I'm also an animal lover. We have a beagle/rott mix named Tonto and a black cat named Cleo.

I've made a lengthy interest and wish list ... not because I'm demanding or picky ... but because I think it's easier as a swapper to have lots of things to choose from that you know your partner will enjoy.

You know the book "Dance of the Dissident Daughter"? I LOVE that book! I had two copies that I bought second handed. One I gave away, the second I have misplaced, just when I need to re-read it! It was signed by Sue Monk Kidd! I will find it one day. Nice to see a kindred spirit! :)
