About Me

I love the story that vintage tells and collect anything old - buttons, books, bottles, jewelry, linens, china, fabric, drawer pulls, lace, dollies, dice, yardsticks, marbles, ribbon, mercury glass, worn out paint brushes, flower frogs ... (could go on forever!)

I think presentation is as important as the gift. A simple item can be adorned to impress. I love dressing up my sends and strive to make my partner swoon and sigh. Of course, I appreciate when this happens to me!

A word about swapping - I join swaps to share of myself and to please another. What I send is representative of who I am - I always strive to be my best! I play at 110% - and expect the same in return. I want to participate with others of integrity, accountability and high standards.
I CREATE EVERY SWAP AS IF IT IS A PRESENT FOR MY BEST FRIEND!

Someone else said this, I relate ~

RHINESTONES & GLITTER ARE MY PROZAC

WHAT ONE MAKES WITH THEIR HANDS, ONE GIVES WITH THEIR HEART

DON'T BE LIKE THE REST OF THEM, DARLING!

LIFE IS HARD ~ IT'S HARDER IF YOU'RE STUPID

ALWAYS ACT AS IF YOU ARE WEARING AN INVISIBLE CROWN

BETTER TO BE ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS THAN ABSOLUTELY BORING

THERE'S NO NORMAL LIFE ~ THERE'S JUST LIFE! GET ON WITH IT

TAKES A MIGHTY GOOD MAN TO BE BETTER THAN NONE

WORRY IS A MISUSE OF YOUR IMAGINATION

INSTEAD OF THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX, GET RID OF THE BOX

DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK

****THINGS I LOVE ****
Chardonnay *
Foxglove *
Rhinestones * Anything that glitters *
Madelinetosh Yarn *
Cowboys *
Locally roasted coffee beans *
Beer caps *
Skeleton keys *
Goldens * Cats * Evergreens * Classic Country Music * Honesty * Solitude *
Pearls *
Vintage - hand mirrors
buttons photographs Barkcloth alarm clocks trims bling anything old *
Velvet ribbon *
scrapes of wool *
ANYTHING from the 50's (potato masher to jewelry to TV tubes!)
* Pendleton Blankets * Rust *

A word about rating - I rate for the quality, care & heart put into a send. Tossing in "extra's" does not justify top rating.

THINGS I DO NOT LIKE, please do not send - * Food or Drink of any kind (except gourmet coffee beans from your area) * Candy, Gum * Gothic or dark stuff or porn (someone did!) * Cheap stuff - nothing from the $ type stores * post-its * lip balm * cutesie stuff * earrings * note cards/paper * stickers * makeup, nail polish, lotion - no cosmetics * teacher reward or cheap stickers * cheap gift tags * washi tape wrapped on a card * scraps of paper cut or folded to fit envelope * playing cards

If you're an active swapper, I know you have been stomped on and abused (flaked on/not rated) just like me. There ARE fabulous ladies on swap-bot; I am seeking out those kindred spirits and fading out the lesser.

Thank you kindly for taking the time to read my narrative!! Hope to meet you in a special trade!

Comment: Hi there! I never got your swap, but I know you sent it & it was probably due to the holidays & all the crazy stuff going on so I am giving you a positive rating. Maybe it will show up someday...that would be a shocker - LOL!

Swap-bot needs more swappers like you! Quality trumps quantity! = )

You are a very generous swap partner! The quilt top that you sent is very pretty and so large, have to make sure it goes to a couple, because of the size. I already envy the homeless couple that does get that quilt, thought it was very pretty and so large! Thank You, your gift is exquisite!

If you are ever in Wa. again let me know! I would love to hear about your class too!

scrappnswapr on Mar 16, 2011:

You are without a doubt the best partner to get in a swap! Thank you so much for taking care of all the little details.

MissPaula on Mar 6, 2011:

Anna,

Anyone who partners with you has hit the jackpot! I had worked a night job and when I got home and opened my mail at 6am, it made my day!

Craftaholic on Feb 28, 2011:

You are absolutely amazing! You send me the best pkgs ever!! I am in aww of the sewn envelope and the shredded fabric... the contents of that beautful tin are awesome. Thank you so much! I have never had anyone send me random just because gift. Thank you for singing to my heart today!!!

QuackQuack on Jan 21, 2011:

Oh, oh - you are SO like me when you say it's a waste of postage to send garbage - I totally concur. I hate to rear the head of green jealous, but a lifetime of worldwide FREE flights ! What was thinking not taking on such a job in my younger years - go go girl - and may you always stay healthy in mind and body to take advantage of those flights. Decorating with books - that's ME - sort of....I have books everywhere, but only because I don't want to give them up. I LOVE books. Looking forward to swapping with you. QQ
