My love of vintage started in my childhood . My Mom had a cedar chest...to me it was a treasure chest, full of old things. I loved the smell, the feel and the story behind each object I touched. On special occasions I could tag-along to Mrs. Berry's house. She ran an antique store in her home. These are some of my favorite early memories.
Growing up as a teenager in Orange County(before it was known as "The OC"), I used to trawl the local thrift stores for vintage jewelry and dresses to wear.
I still cruise the thrift stores in search of plates for my mosaic art, and seem to spend hours looking through the aisles. (I'm easily distracted)! On these ventures I started collecting things that caught my eye or stirred a memory.
I hope you will enjoy my treasures and find something that will capture your heart and brighten your home with a vintage touch!
