About Me

If you haven't received something from me, or I've sent the wrong thing, please let me know - I'm always happy to resend.

I'm a senior software implementer who travels to client sites occasionally and work from home the rest of the time. My husband and I have no children. We dine out frequently and make Home Chef meals 3 times a week. 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). While I love dogs and have had them in the past, I currently have cats, multiple cats - 2 male, 2 female.

2017 - In Review - Of the 631 mailings I sent out in 2017 only 27 of them either didn't get there or weren't acknowledged, a little over 4%. Of the mailings that were to come to me, only 22 didn't make it, or a little over 3%. So considering it was a year of natural and man-made disasters, swap-bot has been one of the bright points.

Favorite Music

Soft rock, new age, classic rock, celtic, old standards, classical, movie sound tracks and jazz.

Favorite Movies

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.

Favorite Television

The Blacklist, Flash, Gotham, Game of Thrones, NCIS (all 3), Criminal Minds, Masterpiece Theater and anything with a mystery just like the books I read. Also shows on History, Discovery, PBS, Nat Geo, Smithsonian, DYI or Biography that teach me something I didn't know. I've fallen in love with Korean RomComs, Dramas - modern and historical, K-pop, Flower Boys, etc on Hulu. I'm even learning a few words in Korean! Kamsa Hamnida (Thank you).

Favorite Crafts

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.

My Likes and Dislikes

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.

~~LIKES~~

Postcards - I like all kinds of post cards - vintage, art, advert, travel, recycled, handmade - just about anything except ones with vulgar humor or overly religious ones.

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

People who read my blog and leave comments

Vintage thread crocheted potholders

Ladies handkerchiefs - old and new

Embellishments - sequins, buttons, ribbon, yarn, game pieces, brads, cut outs, etc, etc, etc

Miniature anything

Old linens - even ones with holes and stains that have interesting bits that can be salvaged

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers and all things gardening

Quilting stuff - especially little handmade quilted things like needle cases, pin cushions, coin purses, eyeglass cases, ornaments, etc

Chocolate, Tea, Chocolate, Salt Water Taffy, Chocolate, Nuts, Chocolate and Chocolate

~~DISLIKES~~

Candles - but only because I'm allergic to the smoke, so I can't burn them

Anything that smells of cigarette smoke - once again I'm allergic

Incense - see above

Heavy, pungent scents because they make me sneeze, though light flower scents don't seem to bother me

Comment: Adorable Bird ATC. We enjoy having bird nest in our trees. Sit on the back porch and listen to the chatter at spring time. We have gotten the smoke filled air from the Ventura and San Barbara fires. Thankfully you survived the Bomb Cyclones. Take care. Sharon
