About

I favor vintage, antiques, SHELLS, old wooden bowls and their patina, letterpress, OLD FLORIDA, Highwaymen painters, CORAL, pottery, old postcards, art, the S.C. LOWCOUNTRY, and anything to do with the SEA. Love utilitarian items, whether wood or metal, for their patinas and history marks. Any container! (Bowls, cabinets, trunks, etc.) My passion is holding them in my hand and using them, whether in the kitchen (like an old dough bowl) or to produce artwork (like wood letterpress type), preserving them and bringing them into the now. Something so lovely about viewing an image on a handmade weathered sign that was actually made with an old tool, giving you a replica of the old wooden or rubber stamp held and used by others long ago. (Saying "no" to digital repros!)

Love old houses & architecture, particularly arts & crafts bungalows. Architectural and industrial salvage gets me going creatively! The stories behind objects are important and essential to their overall creative appeal. I try to tell the parts of the stories I know in my listings! My fav in decorating can best be described as beach cottage industrial!
Give me an old wooden bowl where a mom made food for her family or a patinaed vintage post from an old staircase over a diamond any day. (:
I enjoy swimming, beachcombing, antiquing, painting, reading, cooking for family or others. I also enjoy decorating and doing vignettes using my favorites listed above!
Love my God, family, friends, prayer, and my dog.
