I like all things vintage : Clothes, dolls,books,traditions, furniture, accessories, and people! Victorian Country and shabby chic are my favorite decor themes.
Although I was raised in a small town, I was able to participate in many of the joys of country life due to the fact that my aunt and uncle had a mixed live-stock farm. From the time I was a little girl, we were taught the value of hard work , and learned at an early age how to help butcher chickens and milk a cow by hand.
I grew up in a wonderful Mennonite home with a rich heritage. My parents spoke Plautdeitsch (Low German) and by the time they had me (child #13), they had started to speak more English at home and slowly speaking the German to us kids faded in the background. I married a man of similar background who has helped bring the language back for me. What fun!
My favorite animal…
