About Me

I am a HEALER in many ways. I love nature and all it offers. My flower garden is my inspiration and my sanctuary. I love growing herbs and using them daily in our meals. I am thinking of growing lavender and experimenting with soap making. I have a grandfather tree in my back yard that canopies the entire back. I watch for fairies who live and play there. I like to paint, scrapbook, make simple little jewelry like earrings and I love music of all forms. I am excited about starting this venture to enhance my creativity that I let slip away. I am a very creative person and one of the things I like the most is to give little gifts to family, friends and co-workers. I live in a small town but love the big city. New York is one of my favorite places. I also enjoy all things from Scotland and participate in Renn Faires. I finally made it to Scotland in the fall of 2012 and again August 2014 and now saving for my next trip there. I do hand tooled leather work such as journals, bracers, and items for Faire. I taught my hubby this and he now has his own business. If it is any thing you can do with your hands and mind, I'm there. I love long baths, good books,good wine, fine food, dark chocolate, mornings in my garden and good friends. I work hard at listening to what people are saying. We are all important and deserve full attention when communicating, not just a nod. Most importantly, I try to say a kind word to all around me each day and mean it.

HOLIDAYS- I love Halloween and the Fall in general. The smells and the colors are food for the soul. I love decorating the house and garden for the Fall Holidays. I love finding old, Vintage Halloween items like cards, figures, etc.. like cats and crows and even children in costume. I always have extra special events for Halloween here in my small town and the kids all know it. My place is always the first stop! This is a family tradition I have continued. It was always so dear to my fathers heart! I just love any holiday and another reason to have family and friends close by. Christmas is almost as fun!

MUSIC - I love all music, 70's is my favorite, jazz, Celtic, and many new artists. My husband was in a band for years so I am a groupie at heart. Beatles, Stones, Cream, Bread, Guess Who, Bad Company, Eric Clapton, Moody Blues, James Taylor, Eagles, Frank Sinatra, Maroon 5, Jack Johnson, Queen, ELO, Cat Stevens, Indian Flute, on and on! I could not live without music. It is in my soul.

FOODS - I love it all! My husband is a chef so we eat alot of different things. The more exotic the better. I love different chocolates and shortbread cookies. It's not food but there is nothing better than a glass of red wine with my food! I also love Starbucks coffee and all coffee flavored dark chocolate.

COLORS - I love black! You can find it in my office, in my decorating, my clothing. It is just an elegant color. I love grey, silver, ice and steele blue together. I decorate with a world travel flare as my husband has traveled alot.

PETS - I have two cats that are my children. Ginger and Princess rule the house. They want to say "MEOW" to all their friends here that send them toys!

COLLECTIONS - I collect old powder compacts ,Celtic Greenmen, Superman, The Munsters items/art, Star Trek items and blue colbalt.

ITEMS I LOVE - All things postal with the vintage red, white and blue, airmail stuff, Vintage Halloween items,Superman,Tim Burton stuff, The Munsters items, Star Trek, Greenman, dark chocolate, celtic items, beautiful paper for paper crafts,art pens, vintage circus/side show/freak, Starbucks, Paris, mailart, my family, dark fairies, old world items, rain, little oddities, Edgar Allan Poe items, bones, marbles, gargoyles and your art work that I can frame.

WISH LIST- Vintage postal items like rubber stamps, airmail stickers & envies, rubber stamps with celtic style designs, your art work, little carved wooden boxes, greenman items, Superman, Edgar Allan Poe trinkets. There are so many talented people here and it rocks when I receive one of your handmade, heartfelt crafts.

MOVIES - Tim Burton ROCKS, he is so creative!Love all his movies. I also love to watch any thing to do with Dragons, Knights, Kings, etc... BraveHeart, Lion In Winter, Lord Of The Rings, Robin Hood, Excalibur, Old Vampire & Werewolve movies, any vintage Hollywood horror monsters, Star Trek, Zombies and still have a thing for the Wizard of Oz, love the flying monkey! How can you not like it when you are from Kansas!

SHOWS - Dexter, Lost, The Tudors, Heros, Dead Like Me, Deadwood, Game Of Thrones, Dark Shadows, The Munsters, Food Network, Oddities, Trek, Grimm, American Horror Story, The Voice, and HGTV

HOBBIES - Painting, scrapbooking, photography, jewelry making, gardening, tooled leather work items for Renn. Faire, and stepping stones. I just love all paper crafts like cards, tags, postcards, zines, bookmarks, ATC's, and mail!!! Lots of mail! By the time I was 10, I had to have my own postal box because I kept filling dads. I think it must have come from my dad who use to send my mom a love letter each week when dating. He did art work on each of these envies which I now own. ( minus the love letter)

SCENTS - I like the smells of Rain, Musk, Woody, Fireplace, Leather, Fresh Coffee, Fall, Cinnamon. I dislike floral smells, food related candles like cookies, cherry, strawberry, etc...

FAMILY - I have no children but watch my great nieces and nephews frequently. We always have great adventures they will remember a lifetime. Many of them enjoy the Renaissance Faires with us in full costume. Life is good, easy and simple. Why have it any other way.

Just opened the Halloween #11 -- you are SO talented and creative. Super cute -- starting with the envie. I didn't want to open it b/c it was such a great envie. And the inside was even more fun! Thank you so much!

I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful Halloween swap you sent me. I had a really rough week and your package brought so much joy for several days. Thank you!!!

Case of the Missing Postcard. I don't know when your first post card was delivered, but someone from another neighborhood just came to our front door with a pile of mail (and a few swap-bot swaps) and said "this was delivered to the wrong house."

So I guess we CAN blame this on the US postal service, delivered to wrong address.

Just wanted to let you know, Hearts 💖💖💖
