My family seemingly never threw anything away. Though I love all these old items that have survived moves, fires, moths, and the ravages of time, realistically I cannot keep them forever. I hope they will find a good home with someone who will appreciate them and love them as much as I do.

I also make clothing - primarily dresses in large/extra large/plus sizes. I'm not interested in the latest fashion unless it has a retro flair; the fabrics and styles I choose remind me of my mother and grandmother.
