Ever since I was a little girl, I was drawn to notice "The Unique Things" that I would see in stores and in people's homes when I would go to visit. I was always in love with my Grandmother's pieces, like her coffee table that had blue glass on top, her clock, different things that I would notice...even her cute little coffee pot that she'd always have on the stove top brewing a fresh pot of coffee to be ready for visitors. That was THE BEST!

As I grew up and got a place of my own, I would admire other people's styles of decorating. But, it made me know that I never wanted my home to be a repeat of someone else's style. I wanted my own special touch and one-of-a-kind pieces throughout my home! That was where my search for "Special" pieces began. When I would go shopping, I was drawn to the boutique shops that had only one of anything. The items would tell a story of…

I wanted my own special touch and one-of-a-kind pieces throughout my home! That was where my search for "Special" pieces began. When I would go shopping, I was drawn to the boutique shops that had only one of anything. The items would tell a story of days long ago. Soon, my home became more of a collectible warm place to visit, and I liked that people would comment on it.

I had one more interest that I still hadn't completed in my life......Painting! So, I taught myself knowing I might not be able to paint at all. Then it started to come to life! So exciting, cause now I could actually create those "Unique" pieces! I painted so much that pieces were starting to pile up around my home. When someone would see something that I had painted, they would ask if they could have it. I began painting and giving all of my projects away, keeping only a few.

So, that is why my shop has both of my passions in it, rare collectibles and my own paintings. It is a very rewarding feeling to create something that others enjoy. I hope you do, too! Let me know what you think!
