About

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 is a cat, and I look forward to every spring and fall when our mama cat delivers her babies.
Faith in God and Jesus as my risen Savior is # 1, and family is a close second. God has blessed me with many loved ones, both with me here and now and the ones who have passed on.
The most influential person in my life was, and still is, my amazing Dad. My mom was as well, but passed away when I was 8 years old, so my memories of her, although precious, are few. When so many young people say ' I never want to be like my mom or dad'; I am happy to say there is no one I would rather be like than my papa.
