About Me

"I have the worlds largest seashell collection. You may have seen it, I keep it spread out on beaches all over the world."...Steven Wright

"The world, as a rule, does not live on beaches..." F. Scott Fitzgerald

i love these quotes...the first because it expresses my love of shells and beaches...the second because i love the author and i am one of those who is not living on a beach..although i wish i did.... I have a home in a rural area north of houston south of dallas and east of austin.... lots of beautiful oaks and pines ...it has a lovely pond lined with water lilies…we are now living south of Houston near Galveston…but visit our country house occasionally… i have always enjoyed expressing myself in art and i taught art at the h.s. level... i've lived in several states and in panama for a few years...my friends, like my "shell collection," are scattered around the world... i prefer cool colors... especially teal At present i have one cat and the donkeys are living with a cousin in Louisiana … I miss Frankie my youngest donkey

••• I need to add that recently I failed to hit the "Save Ratings" bottom when rating a swap and my partner never got a rating while I thought I had rated her swap... This happened once before... So please if you do not receive a rating from me let me know ... I save all my swaps and will re-rate as soon as I find out... Thanks so much

Comment: Beautiful ATC!! Thank you for generously sacrificing your Van Goh stationary. I've been to Paris twice, and feel blessed to have seen Mona Lisa in the Louvre.....the painting is smaller than you think. Thanks for the sparkle tape, and the other extra's. I've been spoiled!
Response: Thank you so much and yes that was also my first thought … so small … more impressed by the Venus statue … what a magical place and city….

Comment: Kathryn, this ATC is exceptional! I had no idea that Ida Lupino was anything other than a beautiful woman and actress! So many of our “Hollywoodland” beautiful people were gifted in several ways (Hedy Lamarr…my choice for this swap) comes to mind! Thank you for all the beauty and for the education!
Response: Absolutely hedy Lamar! What an amazing person she was… why has there been no film about her? Truth really is better than fiction thanks so much for another generous rating … love all your swaps
