About

A wife for 26 years, the mom of a teenage son recently graduated from homeschool and now attending college, 3 'grown' sons & 1 daughter plus spouses and friends; grandmemaw to 14 (22 years - newborn), plus caring for my parents, I have a very full and blessed life.

I began 'crafting' as a child to make gifts or fill the time when my asthma kept me from being active. I've always envisioned myself sitting in a rocker doing needlework of some kind and as my asthma has led to COPD the time spent in the rocker has increased! Being able to be creative when you aren't able to do much else is such a blessing and I hope that some of the things I've created and shared will also be a blessing to the recipients.

The vintage items generally come from somewhere in the family. Having grandparents who had small families and who lived late into my adult life, as the oldest grandchild I've been blessed to become responsible for the disbursement of their estates for my parents. The difficulty is we're very sentimental and everything is a treasurer, so it takes a while before I can share. Sometimes, my parents let go of something to keep something else.

I enjoy people (young and old); creative "stuff"; animals, especially dogs; the outdoors: sunrises & sunsets, flowers & gardening, camping, hiking, & exploring; watching sports if my children/grandchildren or friends are playing; "old" movies, (think Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Ingrid Bergman, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Doris Day, Joan Fontaine, Olivia de Haviland, Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison, Errol Flynn, Burt Lancaster, Charlton Heston, etc.) and musicals; most music but especially fond of Contemporary Christian, soundtracks, easy-listening, crooners & rock 'n roll.

I dislike screaming (people, music, animals, etc.); fire ants & yellow jackets; cold & wet together.
