About Me

I’m Ashley Rae, quite the dreamer, often in my own world. I have my heart and mind set on living by the sea. My dream? I'm a victim of wanderlust, and my dream is to travel the world ("There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars."). Somedays, I’ll talk till my throught is sore. I fall in love with things. I love clouds so thick you can’t see the sun. I love winter days spent by the fire. I love people, places, history and culture. Maybe, someday, I’ll call myself a photographer. I love big cities. I love small towns. I love no town at all. I love being surrounded by people. I love being alone. I’m an introvert. I’m an extrovert. (although I'm beginning to find this isn't often true.) I love to sleep the day away. I love to wake up and watch the sun rise. I constantly contradict myself.

I've yet to write a zine of my own, although there's been several failed attemps. I'm currently on attempt #3. However, I've been reading zines for a few years now, and couldn't imagine my life without them, they've shaped who I am and who I am becoming.

Interests: antique stores, art, astrology, audrey hepburn, backyards, baking, bare feet, bicycle rides, bicycles, books, bookstores, cameras, camping, claw foot bathtubs, clouds, cold weather, culture, curly hair, dancing, day dreams, decorating, discovering, dreaming, europe, exploring, family, film, flowers, folk, folklore, foreign films, freckles, gardening, getting mail, gypsies, handwritten letters, henry david thoreau, history, hitchcock, holly golightly, hugs, journaling, learning new things, letters, libraries, literature, long showers, long walks, mix cds, movies, music, mythology, nature, not wearing makeup, old bookstores, old buildings, open minds, origami, owls, photography, post office, postcards, public transportation, quirks, railroads, rain, reading, redwood trees, san francisco, skinny dipping, sleeping, sleeping by the sea, sleeping outdoors, star gazing, sustainability, swimming, taking walks, tea, the night sky, the sea, the sky, the woods, theater, thrift stores, travel, typewriters, vintage odds and ends, watching clouds, windows, winter, world history, writing letters, yard sales, you, zines

I am looking for someone to exchange mail with (letters, cards, zines or postcards). Someone to connect to, or just talk to. Someone who can't help but smile when they see a letter in their mail box. I hope that you'll say hello. It doesn't matter who you are or where you come from.

Hey! Thanks for the comment and sorry I didnt reply sooner, I have been away the past week...for my zine I charge £2.50 including the postage as you're in the states, if thats ok - - have you got access to a paypal account? However my 2nd zine should be getting printed next week, so if you wanted to wait and get a copy of that too I'd do them both for £3 altogether? Tis up to you. Drop me an email at kira_swales@yahoo.co.uk and we can sort something out :) x ps, I enjoyed reading your page

I need your addr Ashley so I can send you my mini zines next week since I will have 4 then.

I'll just send you my zines for free - you can always reply with a letter or something if you felt like it at the time.
But I'll have to delay posting things for a week or so. I just moved house recently and am still getting myself settled in. So I'll contact you again to let you know when I've sent them.
What's your address?

Hiya, thanks for the comment. I'd love to become a snail mail pal of yours. Unfortunately my zine still isn't photocopied - I am so lazy! However when its done I'll happily trade with you for letters etc.
