She is my faithful companion to estate sales, 80 plus years young, and has a keen and knowledgeable eye!
Many items in the shop are of her findings!
I've been married for 39 years to the love of my life,
We now set the table for 10 with our immediate family! Feeling blessed!
Our whole family are huge animal lovers and we have always adopted rescued dogs.
Current lovebucket hounds are Mosley, Achebe & Casper.
Life is good!
Hope you enjoy browsing the shop & thanks for the visit!!
