a farm girl from an original Northwest Territory land grant farm fossil-hunting on the farm
gave me a love for the antique and patinaed. The original house dates from 1818 and was a safe haven during the Civil War. In fact, an escaped slave named Lucy stayed at our house in her escape to Ripley, Ohio. We also have a family cemetery. I grew up digging for treasures in the creek banks and have never outgrown the wonder of searching out history in all forms. I have three boys, now grown, and we love to treasure hunt together! I graduated from DAAP at the University of Cincinnati in Interior Design and was a freelance illustrator for architects and designers for many years...now I'm into styling interiors and am currently renovating an 1843 historical townhouse in downtown Cincinnati.
