Comment: I love everything about the postcard you sent me!! The picture was wonderful with the bent tree and that scenery showing through the two trunks, the quote that you wrote on the back about listening to the trees is fantastic, and even the stamp you used was the perfect touch! Thank you so much for such a wonderful swap. By the way, you have beautiful penmanship; I wish I could write as pretty. Happy summer to you and stay safe!
Response: I am so pleased you enjoyed the postcard! I liked putting it together for you. And thank you re: my pen(wo)manship! ;) It took a lot of time/practice to get my writing to a point where I really like it—haha. // Hope you're having a wonderful summer! <3
Comment: Thank you so much for resending! Sorry it took me a minute to realize but I appreciate your graciousness. On to the swap: wow, easily one of my favorite e-swaps I've ever received. Your aesthetic style is so gorgeous. I felt like I was looking at a published zine! I had also never heard of the phrase "chevrolegs and lamborfeeties" so I am ABSOLUTELY stealing that! LOL! I also think it is so interesting that you find peace in cemeteries. I'm the opposite, I get terribly uneasy being in the presence of death so it was fascinating reading your perspective. I'm sure everyone there appreciates your visit. You seem awesome!!
Response: Aw, you're sweet! I really do enjoy photojournalism, and am grateful to find such comfort with death. Thank you for the very kind words, Analise! <333 Take care!
Comment: Thank you for sharing! I have a similar experience with a classic book. I first read it as a teenager and I loved it. Оn the next reading (I was 20 s.th.) I don't understand how I liked it...and in the last rereading it was as if I were reading a completely unknown book... Probably you should give one more chance to "Pandora" after some times.
Response: So glad to hear I am not alone in my experience, haha. Perhaps I'll give "Pandora" another (final) go sometime next year. <3 Have a great day!
Comment: Margeux <3 Thank you so much for your amazing reading! It absoultely resonated with me! I'll reflect more on it in an email to you! :) It'll really helped me to gain a better insight into what's going on at the moment and brought things to the surface I didn't consciously/actively experience. Thank you, love!!
Response: So glad to hear it, Jen! I always enjoy reading for you! <3
Comment: Thanks for your insight into this book. Funny how we really like a book and then read it again and see that we do not like it anymore. I must admit I havent read much of Anne Rice at all. Happy reading.
Comment: Dear Margeux, I always love sharing Tarot readings with you! Your readings make me feel safe and also teach me a lot of things! I really enjoyed your reading for "What am I manifesting in my life at this moment?" - the moment I saw that The High Priestress showed up had me smiling like crazy. I was so happy for you because I got the feeling, from the cards and what you've written about them, that it brought something to the surface that you needed to see/hear. I'm glad you enjoyed this first swap of my new series! Hugs, Jen
Response: Aw, you always have the nicest things to say about my tarot-ing. Thank you, Jen! Yes, good ol' II High Priestess, I love her. For not expecting much out of this reading originally, it kinda took me by surprise. The cards have a funny way of doing that, don't that? ;)
Comment: Margeux <3 Thank you for sharing your deck's backside design with me! I really enjoyed reading about it and also actually seeing it. Reading about your interview spread was super interesting too. And I absolutely love how you talked about the pronouns you use to refer to your deck + the change thereof. (Also, I LOVE your Tarot cloth!) Can't wait for the other swaps of your series! Hugs, Jen
Response: So glad you enjoyed my sharing, Jen! Now that I've been using the proper pronouns, they seem to be really diggin our relationship; I'm pleased! My tarot cloth (which I also adore) is actually just a cloth napkin! It was the "wrapping paper" for a precious handmade gift from a pen pal. <3
Comment: So cool! I love what you did with the chunk of cardboard! I love the yellow on the back :) so pretty. Thank you for the recipe! I love this swap bc of cards like yours. So creative! Thank you!
Response: Hooray ~ so glad you enjoyed it, Cate! The majority of postcards I send these days are similar. Trash to treasure, baby. ;) Take care!
Comment: Thank you for your review! To be honest, I avoid history books because the events in them are often refracted through the author's view. To find a piece of the truth you have to read many different sources. Good luck in your research on the Utes. 🍀🍀🍀
Response: That's my favorite part about history... the research and reading multiple sources. ;) Thanks for the luck; seems like I'll need it, ha. <3 Be well!
Comment: Thanks a lot for re-sending the mail. I really loved your photos and recipe. I'm not sure if I'm able to make it like you did but it looks delicious. The photos gave me a calm and relaxed feeling. Thanks for sharing
Response: So glad you enjoyed! Lemon balm is quite calming, and dandelions are just so bright + happy. It's a nice loaf, for sure. <3
Comment: I loved reading about your April monthly favorites. I also love the pattern of the fabrics you used in your quilt and the idea of the ‘hexagons’. I would love to have an update of your progress every now and then, if you want to that is. I want to make it in the future. Adding it to my list of things to craft. Ahaha
Comment: Dearest Margeux, thank you so much for sharing your magical journey in such detail! I absolutely enjoyed reading it (love your style of writing!!) Also, not a potterhead either and I always feel like I’m the only one! Haha
Thank you again, I really appreciate it & the time you put into writing your journey down for me! <3
Response: Warms my heart to hear you enjoyed my writing, Jen! I appreciate you hosting such a great swap; how wonderful to articulate my journey. In rereading (after sending, ha) I noticed sooo many typos and places I wasn't as clear as I needed to be or things I left out entirely. I will definitely be reworking this piece a while. THANK YOU! <3
Comment: Thank you for sharing the book with me and sending a photo of it. I must admit that I have never heard of this book but i think I will look it up when the libraries finally open. Thanks for the recommendation. Happy reading.
Response: Oh, how I miss the libraries. I hope you'll enjoy Middlesex if you get around to reading it; I found it so delightful. Take care!
Comment: Thank you for the fun swap. I love your exquisite handwriting! I'm familiar with Jon Sciesaka - he might be a good audiobook listen one of these long afternoons.
I hope you and yours are safe, healthy and sane. Take care.
Response: It has taken me a loooong time to get my handwriting and lettering to a point where I like it, ha ~ thank you! Enjoy Sciesaka, and be well! <3
Comment: Love, I absolutely got lost in your description about your magical place and all the wonderful pics you included. Thank you so much for introducing this truly magical place to me! I read it a couple of times because it was so fascinating. <3
Response: Yay! I am thrilled that you find Orvis to be as magical of a place as I do. <3 I enjoyed writing up this swap and sharing it with you, Jen.
Comment: Corn kernels in a tuna salad actually sounds really good! I will try it! I love tuna sandwiches!
Response: I first ever had corn in tuna salad while passing through Ireland on a backpacking trip back in 2014. The literal 'pops' of sweet are just too good, and the bit of color it adds is pleasing, too. Enjoy! <3
Comment: Beautiful shots! I visited CO for the first time in January and it did not disappoint!
Response: Thank you; I am glad you liked them. Colorado is such a beautiful state, and so, so different from where I grew up in central Florida--ha. I'm glad you were able to visit earlier this year, and hopefully you'll make it back sometime. <3
Comment: Thank you for your book review. You read "The Utes: A Forgotten People" with a critical eye. I'm noticing I'm reading in a similar manner. Bigger picture, historical context, etc. My expectations + the personal history of who is writing the book. I appreciate your review.
Response: Precisely! I'm so glad you enjoyed the review, and found it a bit relatable. Thanks for your kind words. <3
Comment: Loved reading your email. I too lived in western Colorado...Ouray/Telluride/Norwood area, and am also 32! ✨
Response: Woohoo--west slope, best slope! That Dallas Divide-ish area is so, so lovely. Orvis is quite possibly my favorite place in all of Colorado, ha. And cheers to 32! Reading through your profile, and it seems like we have A LOTTT in common! <3
Comment: Thanks Margeux for the zinnia seeds, I love zinnias too! And I don't have any like these, with so many petals, they kinda have a frazzled look which I really like. Thanks again and happy gardening
Comment: Hi Margeux,
A BIG Thank You for your varied and wonderful collections of Flipbooks and Pocket Books. I am excited to now have these references to fall back on if I need support in completing a Flipbook or Pocket Book. Thank you again for putting this together for me and your boards will be added to mine. Have a Great Evening or Day! I hope we get to swap again!
Response: Yay! I am glad you found my board so inspirational. Happy crafting! <3
Comment: Thank you for sharing your board! ^_^ I guess we both grew up with Nancy Drew too.
Response: Cool beans; I love Nancy. I actually reread one of the novels at the end of last year... "Nancy's Mysterious Letter." It made for a delightful, read-completely-in-one-lazy-afternoon book. Oh, nostalgia. <3
Comment: Thank you Margeux for the lovely photos of mail boxes. It made me smile and it is something different that most people do not take photos of. Oh the snow looks cold . Where I live I do not get snow like that at all.
Response: Yay! I am pleased you enjoyed my February captures. I find myself looking out for postboxes everywhere now. I love photographing them. And the snow, golly... I'm missing it already. The place I moved to at the beginning of this month doesn't get anywhere near as much. <3 Have a great rest of your March!
Comment: I enjoyed looking at your board! I put weird jello-ed foods and oysters on my gross food board, too! And your town looks so beautiful! And oh my goodness, I totally forgot about the Fairly Stupid Tales books, I loved those growing up!
Response: Glad you liked my pins. Sounds like we have some things in common. Cheers! :)
Comment: Thanks for sharing your book with me. It is nice to read something that reminds you of places and people from childhood. You obviously enjoyed the book , reading it in less than a week!!!! As I am overseas dont know if I can get this book from the library but I will look. Happy reading.
Comment: Wow! Florence just went WAY up on my list of places to go! And when I do I will try to follow the route you described. :) Thank you for sharing your dream day in Florence with us. It was a really fun read!
Response: That would be so fun to retrace this path! Florence really is magical, but you really do need more than a few hours to really appreciate it, haha. I hope to make it there for yourself someday!
Comment: Florence Italy and You seem to be in LOVE!! or you with Florence? HAHA I hope you get to go back!!
Response: In love? Oh yes, very much so, but it's complicated. I'm not the only one who is so fond of Florence, ya know. I can love her deeply, but she must love me broadly, along with everyone else. // I hope I get back someday, too. Thank you!
