I am the mother of 2 teens and I teach at a large, public high school in TN. I like Celtic, art nouveau, bold florals and vintage items. I love chocolate, Starbucks, architecture and gardens, fashion and textiles, animals, and art. Got my first tattoo with my daughter on her 18th birthday and looking forward to my next tat with my son when he turns 18.
I enjoy home dec, gardening, sewing, jewelry making and quilting. My fav fabrics are bold florals (Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner), and shabby chic styles. I generally do not like cutesy novelty prints unless they are vintage. I love all the Japanese craft books that are out now. I have been sewing since high school and making jewelry since 2003.
A little bit of everything except screamo and gangsta rap. I love John Mayer, Josh Groban, Maroon 5, Dierks Bentley, Prince, Coldplay, Eagles, John Waite, classical and 80's music!
books that make me think about religion, relationships, history. I especially enjoy books written a long time ago or set in the past. I have lots of art books from the museums I have visited and artists I love. I have lots of books on architecture and housing, clothing, gardening and sewing. I am especially fond of Japanese craft/sewing books.
anything with Hugh Jackman! I like movies with amazing costumes and sets. I like movies with a sad ending and musicals. Dune, Godfather, Moulin Rouge, Chicago, Elizabeth, Frida, Marie Antionette, Dangerous Liasons, Elizabeth, Out of Africa, and LOVE 80's teen movies, since I was an 80's teen.
I don't watch a lot of TV but I like Queer Eye, CSI, What Not to Wear, Project Runway, Dexter, Tudors, Miami Vice lol!
