AllisonA(Animaterra) SECRET SANTA, gifts and teasing. (141* d) RE: SECRET SANTA, gifts and teasing. 13 Nov 17


I'm excited to be back in the neighborhood and playing with my mates again!

As you will determine, one of the joys of Secret Santa is learning about you and your region.

1. What is your age range?
Somewhere between 57 and 59 years young.

2. Gender?
Female

Colors found in nature in the northern hemisphere: rich and dark blues, reds, purples, greens, yellows- not crazy about pastels, orange/browns.

4. Favorite authors/type of book?
Fiction: Happy/cozy/well written - I enjoy "English cozy" and love children's fantasy
Some fantasy. LOTR is my standard for all time. Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman and ilk (but NOT horror, macabre)
Folklore and fairy tales, especially from your region
Non-fiction: Nature, especially from your region. History, biography, some science.
Songs and tunes from your region
Knitting patterns!

Alice Starmore's Fair Isle books
Song or tune books, or regional crafts, especially fiber, from your region

Love early music, baroque, fiddles, accordion, concertina---

7. What CDs have you really been wanting?
You choose!

I want to discover Doctor Who. I also haven't seen the newer Pratchett movies

9. What is your t-shirt size?
L

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what?
Handmade spoons
Beeswax candles
Yarn- preferably natural fibers from your region

11. What are some of your other hobbies?
knitting, gardening, sailing

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry?
Pure gold (I'm lucky to have Dear Husband to take care of that for me)
From you, I would prefer hand crafted leather, wood, stone- especially from your region.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like.
I'm a singer, song leader, play accordion and concertina, I'm a contra and country dance caller/teacher, and an aging hippie happy homemaker.

I love dark chocolate, but don't care for chocolate with fruit, such as orange or raspberry
Other "sweet" loves: marzipan, vanilla cream, honey, ginger
I sometimes have an allergic reaction to walnuts, but other nuts are fine, even pecans.
I drink dark, strong "builder's tea" and my poison of choice is Taylor's of Harrogate Scottish Breakfast.
I do not, sadly, drink any alcohol


14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful.
