About Me

July 9- I’m not joining swaps for a little while. My whole family has taken turns being sick. I’m exhausted and I have fallen behind in all cleaning and things. Now I have gotten sick. I’m so tired of coughing 😕

2/1/21: Doing much better. Feeling "normal" again :) Thanks for all the Swapbot love through these difficult days.

alt text

12/21/20 : Surgery follow up in the morning. It’s going to require a office procedure that I am already having anxiety about.

12/15/20: Today I was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery. Thank you for understanding if I am a little late or not participating in the usual way.

11/20/20: Feeling sad and overwhelmed. Dealing with some stuff going on in my life. I’m trying to keep things simple for awhile.

WELCOME! Thank you for stopping by to meet me.

Mimosagirl ...my Swapbot id has a connection to a tree planted in my yard. It was a gift by one of my sons who saved a small twig from the trash heap of a greenhouse/nursery he was working at when he was a teenager. He is now 34 and the tree is huge.

I’m a 54 yr old stay at home mom. I have a young son that I homeschool. For fun he and I play Pokémon, Minecraft, Animal Crossing New Horizons, chess, backgammon and go on adventures through our land or sometimes museums. He keeps me young 😃

I love gardening, history, art, Japanese gardens, spelunking through caves, and just about anything that I can get my body to agree with. I have good days and not so good. I’m not sure what I have other than really achy bones. I started upping my vitamins and water so I’m hoping that helps. It’s depressing to be in pain most of the time.

All types of music are interesting to me. I was a teenager in the 80s so I'm fond of pop/rock from that era. I like some bluegrass, older country, I enjoy listening to Japanese music, a little Kpop occasionally, and often spend my early morning time tuned into 1940's UK radio on the web.

Speaking of 1940's, I am a huge fan of vintage (1930-1950) postcards, womens handkerchiefs, vintage style fashion, brooches, playing cards, food tins, Christmas decor, and just about anything from that era.

Favorite Books

True stories about history and events. Currently reading : 9/23/20: Reading our Rural Missouri Magazine. You can access it on their website. Great recipes. 9/2/20 : I was given a stack of paper crafting magazines so I am enjoying those right now and watching tons of DIY youtube videos. With current events I can't get into a book it seems. I have a hard time staying focused and remembering what I have read. So....I try to just keep busy. 2/2020: Enjoying my sons Cricket magazine sub. 8/18/19: A Gathering of Days 8/6/19: Hero on a Bicycle - about a boy in Italy during the Nazi occupation.

I have all the Boxcar Children books and Hardy Boys, Stories about life during 1940's world wide, Survival Books, Gardening, Stamp collecting, Herbal, Word Search puzzle mags, & I have enjoyed reading many of Barbara Kingsolver books. My favorite being Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. As a child The Childcraft books by World Book were treasures.

Favorite Movies

Ponyo, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service.... Sarah Plain and Tall, Anne of Avonlea , Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Seal Morning, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings , The Hobbit, The Last Unicorn, Little House on the Prarie, The Princess Bride.... Star Wars,....

Favorite Television

Sanford and Son, Sesame Street, Andy Griffith, Dark Shadows, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, But I don't actually watch TV anymore. Occasionally I will watch something on NetFlix with my son like Wild China or other nature or science program.

oh....

and sometimes BBC shows... Home Front, Land Girls, Wartime Kitchen, Foyle's War Currently watching Netflix episodes of Father Brown...funny and suspenseful.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy paper crafts like card making, Scherenshnitte, miniature book making, ATC,& now into making Memorydex Cards.

Memorydex swap information: I store my MEMORYDEX Cards in a tray/box system. So they can be tall but not much hanging over the sides. Thank you for considering this when swapping with me.

Ephemera:

Vintage ladies pattern envelopes, pretty/interesting playing cards, pressed coins, foreign currency, tea envelopes, matchbooks, vintage postcards, paper fans, old automotive advertising and fueling station promo, Hello Kitty, Strawberry Shortcake, Holly Hobby, Barbie, Anything from Japan, Russia, Germany, Sweden, Ukraine, Canada, ...... Anything 4-H related, cute letter stationary, small cute envelopes, .... just about anything 😁

Junk Journals are a favorite. The lacy, ribbon filled, lots of pockets and tuck spots, made from an old hard back book....I'm working on one for myself that is very girlie, with lots of lace, shades of pink/rose and ecru white. Vintage slightly creepy.

Comment: Hi! Thank you for the washi tape and extras! Your handwriting is so pretty! Hope all is well with you.
Response: You're very welcome! I'm glad you liked it. Thank you for the compliment. I try :) my mother used to make me practice A LOT. She always used to say that it was my "mark" and I would leave it behind on 1000's of papers throughout my life and that it represented me so I should do it well and make it memorable. :) Things are going well at the moment. I had a great birthday/Mother's Day weekend. Take care and I look forward to swapping again sometime.

Comment: WOW! What a beautiful and incredible surprise. It was such a joy to open! Everything is so incredible perfect! THANK you! The stationary is adorable. It is so hard to find cute stationary. I will treasure it! THANK you for making my whole week!
Response: You're very welcome! :) I'm so glad you are liking it all. There's a cool Etsy shop that makes their own stationary. They used to have a monthly subscription club La Papierre I think is the correct spelling. So much cute stationary! Take care and I look forward to meeting at the mailbox in future.

Comment: Aww, great news! Congrats on the grandchild-to-be! <3 My cousin is going to pop with TWINS by August/September! I took a little break from Animal Crossing but I find myself coming back to it here and there, so peaceful ^^ I need to know more about the games you mentioned, they sound so cute! Kawaii jounnaling... sounds like a cool group and concept :)
Response: Thanks! I love the kawaii journaling because I get to use some of the bajillion sticker flakes and mini memos I have accumulated LOL but as with any journaling I tend to let days go by without taking time to write. I have some journals that are the size of a typical Readers Digest but span about 4 OR 5 YEARS! LOL oh well....at least it's something. btw...love the new sexy lexy :)

for the wonderful bundle of stationery you sent me for my May wish list. Such a fantastic variety! I think my favorites are the USPS botanical stamp letter paper and the vintage postalettes and papers...and a bunch more, too. hehe. I'm very much looking forward to using my new papers for swap notes and letter writing. I appreciate you and your kindness. ♥ (May WW)

Thanks for the washi taped postcard for my May WW wishlist! I love washi stickers as well. I visited Japan a couple of years ago and really had to stop myself from buying all the stationery!
