Since I was a child visiting relatives in the country I have been intrigued and delighted by all things vintage. A neighbor living across the way was a lovely English lady with lovely tea pots and tea cups adorning her kitchen and lovely vintage furniture throughout her home. She often invited me over we would sit on her porch and just chat for a while. I loved that porch and the wicker furniture we sat on and always thought I would have the same thing on my porch. Many years have passed since those warm summer day memories but my love for wicker and antiques is just as strong as the first time we met! As a result Ive always got my eye out for abandoned items on the side of the road. I was GREEN before it was in vogue and will continue; waste not want not I say!
I love a good garage sale, antique show, flea market and often test my stop on a dime brakes to frequent one!
Im a single mom blessed with 3 lovely children.
I have dragged my kids along to help me load some treasure into my vehicle and whenever we pass a heap of stuff they say Mom, please, keep going.
