From reading other profiles, i think i should add to mine! I'm going to do something i saw someone else do, the ABC's of me. Something i like starting with each letter of the alphabet. A - animals. I have a LOT of pets. 2 dogs, 8 cats, and 2 pet rats. Good thing i live in a rambling 100 year old house and have plenty of sun porches!
B - books. I am an avid reader and love everything about books. To open a new book is a spiritual experience for me, you're opening a door to a new world, new lives, new points of view.
C - coffee. Love the stuff. I limit myself to one cup a day because i like so much cream and sugar in it. D - driving. I love getting in the car on a sunny day with no destination in mind, getting lost and seeing what cool restaurants and stores i can discover.
E - envelopes! Decorated, handmade, stickered, pretty writing. I like making it fun for the post man and receiver.
F - flea markets. I love to look at other people's junk! Finding the diamond in the rough.
G - gardening. I plant about 30 planters with flowers and have a small vegetable garden every year.
H - hawaii. Went there once on my honeymoon and thought it was as close to heaven on earth as possible.
I - ink pens, glitter and gel, scented, and bic bold
J - jewelry. I love sparkly stuff, not for wearing, just to look at and craft with. :-D
K - kitschy. Love vintage stationery, especially 80's. I just love anything really old and unique.
L - London, but really just anything England. I'm obsessed with the whole history, culture, and accent. I Love watching the BBC, doctor who, how clean is your house, red dwarf, the IT crowd, Sherlock, and so many more.
M - mail! Just send it! I'm so not picky! Huge, long, chatty, steam of consciousness letters. Fat mail, skinny mail, just send it all. :-)
N - Neil Gaiman, he's my favorite author and person. He even signed a library card from my library and sent it back to me with pictures!
O - outside. I'm not into sports but i like being outside. The warm sunshine fills the soul. I just like feeling the wind and fresh air.
P - pizza. Is there such a thing as a bad pizza? I like them all. NY, Chicago deep dish, flat and crispy, white or red, i love pizza.
Q - quilts. Not the making of, i don't have the patience or precision for that! I just like buying them, looking at them, crafting with old ones, etc.
R - resting. I live for naps!
S - stained glass. Again, not to make but to buy and look at. I have several stained glass lamps that i treasure. I love sun catchers too.
T - tea. I love tea and tisanes. Love pretty much every tea except for green tea.
U - useless trivia. Surprise me with some weird bit of knowledge.
V - vampires. Love a good dark and seductive vampire book or movie.
W - wicker baskets. Can't get enough wicker baskets. Hygge at its best.
X - skipping this one Y - Yankee candles.
Z - zombies. My absolute favorite monster, i live for a good zombie book! There was a year where i read nothing but zombie books. Movies and tv shows are good too, but zombie books rule.
