I am very passionate about vintage and antiques. I wish they could talk because I am sure every piece would have a story. I have a lot of fun considering what the story may be though. This passion has been with me since I was a child. My mother would come home from work and always have to turn the lights on because she was afraid she would fall over something because I had redecorated the living room again. I wish I could say I have a favorite style but unfortunately for my family I love it all. They are still having to turn the lights on when they come home because I may have changed the entire house while they were out.
