Victoria's Profile

About

Baby boomer extraordinaire, I adore anything and everything that is kitsch and of questionable taste. If it's old, plastic, and tacky, I either have it already, or I want it!

My home is filled with paint-by-number and gravel-art pictures, aging plastic toys from the 1960s, vintage clothes, hats, purses, fabric, rotary-dial telephones, TV lamps, and did I mention MELMAC??????????? I swoon over this stuff, and have to restrain myself at estate sales, thrift stores, and garage sales or I would be a full-fledged hoarder of these dubious treasures. Also I might knock someone down trying to climb over them to get at the stuff. Nothing is more fun than ferreting out that ONE wacky item everyone else has overlooked--though it's probably because they couldn't stand it!

On the personal front, my husband of 36 years and I have four great kids I…

On the personal front, my husband of 36 years and I have four great kids I homeschooled all the way to college, a couple of beautiful granddaughters, and three wonderful pomeranian "fur kids" who bring me daily joy and laughter. We live off the beaten track in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains southwest of Mt. St. Helens.

I love the absurd, I love solitude, I love music, I love reading. Someone once described me as an "extroverted introvert" and I think that's a fair summation. Etsy is ideal for me--I have fun interacting with the people I meet through their shops and mine.

My identity in Jesus Christ is at the core of all I am and all I do. I strive to go over and above the expected in everything I do as my way of honoring Him:

"Whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."
1st Corinthians 10:31
