Hi Marie,

Please add me, this sounds like too much fun already, thanks for hosting :)

I tend to lean toward farmhouse/traditional anything with an old world charm to it.

My favorite things include:

1) handmade ornaments and any crafted Christmas decorations
2) I LOVE to cook and bake
3) milk chocolate
4) snail mail stationery stuff- paper, cards, stamps, die cuts, stickers etc.
5) favorite colors are teal and berry red
6) herbal teas and anything tea related- I had to give up caffeine this past year :(

Yours in Sisterhood,

Michal, Farmgirl #7441

Things that I like...

1. Anything vintage.
2. Milk chocolate, especially with peanut butter, caramel or peppermint.
3. Lemax villages pieces.
4. Knitting, crochet, quilting, embroidery just about any craft.
5. Baking
6. Books, I love to read pretty much anything.

hugs,
Marcy
