About Me

I am easily amused and also pretty easy to please. I have a soft spot for animals, especially kittens. I love colors in pink, blue and purple ranges, especially together/combinations. I like reading witty, personal stuff. When I'm in the mood, I like to go to junk shops, thrift stores and yard sales to get things -- locally and on trips, too. I tend to lean left but try to stay open-minded. It does not bother me that my friends and I often have different opinions. I believe in live/let live as long as nobody's getting hurt. PLEASE: no glitter, thanks!

Comment: Love the Photos! The in flight photo complete with plane wing with the city and lake... masterpiece! It's such a great shot!! Aim for Victory Poster is really unique and love how they incorporated the peace sign over the chief's head... very cool!!! Squirrel is awesome! It's a "where's waldo" in a serene silhouette shot with vibrant blues and whites .. sweeet shot! Here's how I think about it.. we don't go to the State fair this year but maybe next year it will feel even that much more special because we skipped! Hoping you're well! xx Gabi

Comment: Beautiul photos! I LOVE that you snapped photos from the plane... those are my favorite type of cloud photos so I am loving these! Thank you so much for the vintage cloud photo and the cool vintage photo envelope! how COOL of a find!!! I agree with you. Travel and being places where crowds are gathering is not my idea of being safe either. I am vaccinated and I am still leery. We won't be attending our State Fair either or our County 4H Fair.. it's just too risky and too crowded and wearing a mask outdoors is stifling in this heat and humidity. Hopefully things will calm down somewhat as the weather cools off and people are busy and back from summer activities and all... *sigh* I miss traveling too! a LOT! Hugs! G

Comment: What a fantastic selection of stamps, I love all of them. And the Camel info was great too. I can't wait to show my husband - he hates camels! (There was a spitting incident!)

Comment: Thank you for yet another wonderful swap! The skyline photos are beautiful and green ink always makes me happy. I love trying to get good shots from the air when I travel. The greeting card brand is new to me but I will definitely check it out, love the matching envelopes. These swaps are inspiring me to shoot more, so thank you for hosting! Happy swapping and be well.

Comment: What a surprise to see that you were my partner for this swap!! 💛 I always love seeing your mail in my mail box!! The park sounds like an amazing place, I’m a sucker for waterfalls (just got home from a waterfall hiking adventure 10 mins ago even, maybe we need a waterfall SS swap, would be so hard for me to pick a photo though!!) I cannot believe all the amazing stamps you included with this swap, on the envelope and inside!! Such and awesome stamp rainbow to sort through! I really love the national parks block of four stamps on the envelope, and how your post office uses red ink instead of black to cancel stamps. Thank-you so much 🥰 And your hummingbird photo!! What a neat shot, it’s just hanging out patiently waiting to have its photo taken! The print looks so much like a painting. Thank-you for sharing all of the details around this photo with me 💕

Comment: 💛 💙 💜 WOW! What an unexpected, wonderful and generous surprise! You made my day, what an amazing package of gifts! Thank you so much, Lou. It's always so much fun to join your swaps. Thank you for hosting them. I really enjoyed going through the Biltmore House- so much history. There is an etching by Albrecht Durer hanging on one of the walls, the rhino. Durer is one of my favorite artists. Tons of hearts to you! 💛 💙 💜

Comment: What a bright happy envelope of happiness! Thank you for the beautiful flower photos, fabulous green washi and wonderful letter. Many years ago I visited the Como Zoo on a class field trip I think. It was long before I got into photography so no pictures from that trip, but I do have some from a visit to the Bachman's flower show. My favorite spot to shoot flowers there was always Munsinger Gardens in St. Cloud. I worked overnights in the area and would stop by the garden when I got off work early in the morning. It was so peaceful... the Mississippi flowing by... Sweet Minnesota memories! I'm loving these swaps, thank you so much for hosting. Oh! And the TN postage stamps - how cool! Thank you for a truly wonderful swap. It honestly made my day today. Happy swapping & be well.

Comment: Hello Lou ! Thank you so much for the 2 birds note card, with your so nice note and the 6 awesome washi samples! You're more than welcome, for my joining in this swap. I love these kind of swaps! Like where you live, it has been one heat wave after another. But also it's been one thunder storm after another as well and they've been very severe ones. Last week, we had one so bad, it knocked out the electric in the whole town of Canton, PA. and atop the mountain we live on. We were without electric for 2 1/2 days. Anyway, Sounds like your State fair will be fun and I'm sure it is. The Canton Fireman's fair was 2 weeks ago. But hubby & I didn't go. We haven't been to it in 10 yrs. Basically it's pretty boring. So, We go to the Chemung County fair in Horseheads, NY. It's about 54 minutes from here. But didn't go the last 2 yrs. due to Covid. So, it will be so wonderful to finally go again! Is so much fun at this fair! Well, I hope you & whoever you go with, to the State fair have a wonderful time!

Comment: Hi Lou! Always wonderful to have you as a partner and thank you for all the wonderful goodies! I can see how the movies would be more fun than the gym! LOL! Hasn't this weather been crazy?? We got to visit the Postal Museum several years ago in DC and loved it - hope you get to go soon! I am so hoping the new stain does not wind up closing everything down again - at least this time if it does, maybe folks will feel better prepared or not, sigh! Wishing you all the best and love the wonderful swaps you host! Hugs and Happy Swapping - p.s. Greta is awesome - she traveled with us last week and was a real trooper! Not sure how one small pup can take up so much room in my heart but she sure does! ;)
