About Me

I love all things kawaii, vintage, retro, kitschy, girly, gothy, and Victorian. I collect old tea tins, stationary, stickers, yarn, beads, vinyl toys, pop art, retro robots, mid century modern anything, and Blythe dolls.

I work as a metadata librarian and historian in a university archive and love my job. Naturally I enjoy describing and organizing and love manuscripts and photographs.

I live with my cat, Spooky Mulder, in a 1910 apartment. It has a lot of vintage charm and I've decorated it with mid century modern furniture.

Favorite Music

My favorite genres are new wave, goth synth pop, and dance pop.

Lady Gaga, Bjork, Fiona Apple, Capital Cities, Tori Amos, David Bowie, Smiths, Metric, Myzica, Keane, B-52s, Devo, Cibo Matto, , Depeche Mode, Adam Lambert, Scissor Sisters, Killers, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Oingo Boingo, Garbage, Massive Attack, Santogold, Borns, Lana Del Ray, Adele, to name a few. :)

Favorite Books

Favorite of all time: World According to Garp by John Irving. Everyone should be required to read it! It was the book that made me realize how amazing literature could be. Also that no matter how much I tried, I would never ever be able to write a book like that.

Harry Potter series, His Dark Materials series, To Kill a Mockingbird, My Dirty Little Book of Stolen Time, A Reliable Wife. My favorite books are historical fiction and gothic romances.

Favorite Movies

Tim Burton films (Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd), Les Mis, Wizard of Oz, Harold and Maude, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (original), Leon, Down with Love, Moulin Rouge, Big Lebowski, Rushmore, The Life Aquatic, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Velvet Goldmine, Harry Potter (Azkaban is my fav), Singing in the Rain

Favorite Crafts

Subversive cross stitch, knitting, crocheting (amigarumis!), beading, making kitschy Christmas crafts, decoden

Things I love


Anything Halloween - the spookier/gothy-er the better!

Religious iconography (note, I am NOT religious, but I love old style iconography like medieval, saints, etc.)

Edwardian/Tudor/Victorian era


Kawaii goodies - I like ALL brands but Sentimental Circus is my favorite

Favorite colors: Purple, Turquoise, Green


Stickers - loose or sheets, I love them all!


Anything retro/vintage/kitschy

Pin ups

Old photographs

Yarn - I don't care for 100% acrylic, but blends are okay. No novelty yarn such as ribbon or fuzzy. I just am not good with that stuff!



Ugly Doll

Vinyl Toys/Blind boxes/Kid Robot

Jewelry - I wear a size 6 ring. Any length necklace is okay!

Anything handmade



Forest/Mori girl





Vintage Children's Books

Harry Potter - Any house colors are fine, but love Gryffindor and Hufflepuff the most. Fav characters are Fred and George, Ron, Remus, and Snape

Deco Sweets

Anything Japanese

Hello Kitty

Badtz Maru


Deery Lou


Sugar Bunnies

Beads - Swarovski crystals, glass beads, seed beads, anything sparkly!




Emily the Strange

Art - I love Tara McPherson, Mark Ryden, Kathie Olivas, anything with a weird whimsical look to it.

Things I dislike

Perfume - but scented things are fine! I just mean bottles of perfume.

Black licorice

Novelty yarn (i.e. fuzzy or ribbon)


A list of those who have flaked on me and not sent their swap. Always happy to re-rate once swap is received. Please be aware, I always message the user first and wait a few weeks for a reply. If I never hear back or get my swap then I will list them here so others can be forewarned. It's really sad that we have to do this. :(

♥ Leave a Nice Comment #2 ♥
I thoroughly enjoyed reading your profile, as we have a lot in common and it contains so much detail! It would be easy to be your swap partner because you have such a great profile!
I love that you are into history! I don't get a chance all that often to read about it but when I do I love it-I mostly read about History or Art and Photography though. However, if I am watching TV I can tell you that I probably have on the History Channel!
Your Etsy shop is cute! Do you make all of those charms? It seems like we have a lot of common and I will been keeping a lookout for you names in upcoming swaps!

Many Greetings from Chicago, Rebecca! It was a joy to read your profile - it made me smile a lot! It's such a happy, upbeat profile, filled with life! Truly a pleasure to read!

I checked out your Etsy shop - wonderful! Great items! I love Kawaii, too - stickers, stationery, deco tape, all of it! It's such fun!!

I love that you love the Scissor Sisters. You're one of the first people I've come across online that even knows who they are! My husband and I were really big into them back in 2004 - 2005. They're a wonderful group!! Their music is great!

Thank you for making this an easy swap. ;)

Cheers, Heather

Hello!! I am your partner for Leave A Nice Comment 2. I too recycle as much as I can. I also try to turn a lot of the recycables into other things. I made some bird feeders out of plastic bottles and some out of some glass jars I had. I painted them then hung them up in my garden. I too love to scrapbook although right now it seems I dont have the time. So many summer activites going on for the kids!! I hope your wether is calm and nice, ours is so hot here right now! Well i hope this finds you well. :)

Hello Rebecca! I am your partner from the "Leave A Nice Comment #2" swap. When I read your profile, I noticed that we have a lot of similarities. I love all things kawaii, vintage, girly too, and I also collect stationary, stickers and I also love GLEE :)) I even have an odd sense of humor that other people sometimes don't understand :D I think that we could be friends in real life :) So have a great day! Owls 4ever! :D

You certainly keep busy! I would love to get together with you and swap goodies. Some of my fabric, jewelry, paper etc. could find a new home! I don't know what everything on your list is but it all sounds like fun to me1

Hi, One of my best friends has a history degree with a master in library science but she is English so it's in English history=). I am jealous that you can crochet amigarumis and like you I dislike black licorice blech. Teresa
