I love the story that vintage tells and collect anything old - buttons, books (esp old ones with fancy covers,) bottles, jewelry, linens, china, fabric, drawer pulls, lace, dollies, dice, yardsticks, marbles, ribbon, mercury glass, worn out paint brushes, flower frogs, silver sugar bowls & creamers (actually any silver item) silver trophies (love the engraving) ... (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

I appreciate things of quality ~ inexpensive, dollar store type items are a waste of your money ~ not for me!!! Quality trumps quantity!!!
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 in general * makeup, nail polish, lotion - no cosmetics * teacher reward or cheap stickers * cheap gift tags * washi tape * scraps of paper cut or folded to fit envelope * playing cards * perfume * socks * scarf * lotions
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!
