NannysRose's Profile

About

I'm a lawyer, a writer, a musician and an avid collector of all things beautiful.

I grew up a poor gal in a rich town. Never quite able to understand my peculiar place in the world, I developed fancy schmancy taste. As the phrase goes, I have champagne taste and a beer budget.

Rumor has it that we attorney folk are rich, but I can assure you this is not true. Especially if you're one of those "Don't worry about paying me, I'm in it for the justice" types. I love the law and love being able to use it as a tool to help people.

I'm a criminal lawyer at heart, but I'm up for anything that includes "fighting the good fight."

In my imagination I live in a giant mansion, on many acres of property, with each giant room filled to the brim with a fascinating theme that indulges my need to collect and craft.

However, for now ... I must make do with a pint-sized place in a big city. I do love my city, and my state, and my country. There is so much beauty and inspiration here.

The "Nanny" in Nanny's Rose, is my great-grandmother Grace Beckwith, a blue-collar Indiana widow who raised four girls on her own in the 1920s-1930s. Somehow, though money was always scarce, Nanny managed to amass a huge collection of fabulous things. She excelled at living beautifully. She had class, taste, style and ... Grace.

Amazing Grace.
