I’m blessed to live quite near to the Sea and love to hear the seagulls calling out... and the sound of fog horns when the sea mist rolls in ... 💙 the passing of the seasons, the different colours and smells, seasonal foods and the changes in Nature, all make life special... I am a creative person and love different crafts and sewing but at the moment patchwork and tapestry.
I like different music for different moods, but particularly 70's\80's Rock, and Dance anthems, I also watch local bands regularly.
I enjoy reading (there is always a pile of books waiting for me :) ,I like women's history, folk art, customs and traditions. I really enjoy finding out about social history, other people's traditions, how they celebrate and what foods they eat etc.
I'm a bit of a film geek... 😎 Love films. Nothing better than a Sunday afternoon, snuggled under a cosy blanket and watching a good film ...!
I collect all sorts - cookery books, folk art, advertising ephemera, buttons, beads, anything miniature - especially miniature food... dollshouse size, and not forgetting postcards and stamps! I love social history and vintage or pre loved items, preferring them to new.
And in my spare time ☺️ I’m slowly re-decorating my home, gardening and growing vegetables - not without a little hindrance from my cat and dog.!! I’m re-planting my garden after a change around and loving the little changes including a small pond …Small blessings 💙
Have discovered Inge Löök and Love her art work! And postboxes, and lighthouses ☺️
🥳 I taught myself to crochet in 2019/2020 and am crochet mad at the moment! ☺️
Stay safe and well everyone! 😘
Edit: 16/11/21 … There seems to be a delay problem with the post where I live. Not sure if it’s widespread though England or just my area. We don’t get any Mail for a week or two, then a lump of mail comes through at once. So, I apologise for any delay in loading received postcards, which I will load as soon as I get them xx
