I'm a software trainer who travels to client sites about half the time. My husband and I have no children. We dine out constantly just like the rest of Houston, Texas. I love things in rich jewel tones, like emerald and sapphire, and pastels, like pale yellows, pinks, greens and blues, elegant, classic, romantic, pretty, eclectic, cottage style, but nothing too cutesy (unless it's baby animals - they can't be too cute).
Soft rock, new age, classic rock, celtic, old standards, classical, movie sound tracks and jazz.
Casablanca, Enchanted April, anything by Alfred Hitchcock, old classic black and white movies. Anything animated. Period Pieces with gorgeous costumes, just about anything but horror.
White Collar, Castle, The Mentalist, Dexter, CSI, CSI:NY, Psyche, NCIS, and anything with a mystery just like the books I read. Also shows on History, Discovery, PBS, National Geographic, DYI or Biography that teach me something I didn't know.
Sewing, quilting, paper crafts (collage, cards, quilling, etc), crochet, altered art, paper mache, painting, woodwork, clay, bead work, cross stitch, needlepoint, doll making. You name it, I'll try my hand at it.
I realized my profile doesn't really have enough info to help someone trying to decide what to send me so I thought I'd make a list of my likes and dislikes.
Ephemera of any kind - old photos, sheet music, pages out of books, interesting magazine clippings, used greeting cards, postcards, brochures, programs, certificates, maps - old or new, paper with inclusions, tags, etc. If it's made from paper I'll take it.
Birds - Loons, Bluebirds, Sparrows and Owls, especially, but any kind
Seahorses and Sea Dragons, Jellyfish, Sea shells, Starfish - pictures, photos, toys, stuffies, etc
Hedgehogs and Penquins and Horses and Otters
Baby animals of any kind
