My childhood was spent in farm fields and swimming in the lake, along with treasure hunting with my mother to find the perfect fabric for a new outfit for her to sew or when we were older for my sisters and I to use. She would also take us to any Estate Sale or Auction she could, looking for what ever caught her eye. Each time I pick up a vintage item, I feel in touch with someone in my past. Whether they were related to me or not. I hope you find pleasure browsing my little shop


I come from a Restaurant background, which makes me especially addicted to China and Serving pieces from all eras. I believe that the best times in life is when you are surrounded by friends and family and breaking bread

One of my favorite folktales is the story of Stone Soup.

Some travellers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travellers. Then the travellers go to a stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing. The travellers answer that they are making "stone soup", which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little bit of garnish to improve the flavour, which they are missing. The villager does not mind parting with a few carrots to help them out, so that gets added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the travellers again mention their stone soup which has not reached its full potential yet. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning to help them out. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by all

I hope you find "nourishment " for your soul/home/ and life
