Hello and welcome. Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
I've been a homemaker all of my adult life, both domestically and professionally. I've made my living restoring and remodeling old houses and their gardens. The greatest pleasure for me was the staging at the end of the restoration when I had the fun of creating little fantasy worlds. I restored a revolutionary war farmhouse on the coast of Maine, a gold rush era California Victorian, a 1930s Southern California ranch Mickey Mouse style with Palm trees, a San Fransisco Queen Anne, and a California Bay Area Prairie Style, among others.

I'm retired from the professional world, now, and I spend my free time restoring these images for you to enjoy and use for your art . I have a large collection of old images which I'll be adding to my shop bit by bit, as well as the paper collections which were made with the very beneficial help of my son who is a skilled graphics and web designer. I really couldn't have done it without him! ( Thanks so much honey! )
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions. I hope you have fun with it all. Creating is one of life's greatest joys!
