I've always been a creative person. When I was a little girl, I made all of my doll clothes and my relatives received numerous woven potholders on any given occasion. I loved creating. I once made a skirt for myself out of paper. Of course, I didn't go out in the rain.
In 1969, I married the love of my life, the boy next door. I worked as a nurse and he as a Financial Analyst. In 1976, we were blessed with our son James. Soon after our son's birth, our world came crashing down. My husband became totally and permanently disabled.
In the Fall of 2008, my daughter-in-law told me about Etsy. I opened a shop and became hooked. I have always loved vintage and suddenly had an outlet to share the treasures I found.
I can stare at a vintage item - an old quilt or a piece of kitchenware - and wonder where had it been, who owned it and what story it secretly held.
Now, I'm a Blogger. Never thought I would be. What fun we are going to have! I can't wait to share my love of vintage with you!
