Born in a small southern American town, I grew up in my parents country store, which closed along with the rest of main street during the big box transformation.
I moved and traveled a great deal afterwards...over 30 times...from Japan to Italy to California to Florida and some other stops along the way until at last...I am at again as the Italians say "living where I can hear the bells from where I grew up".
I'm a lover of historic homes and have assisted in renovating three. I'm always looking for the broken houses that need to be saved on lost corners and country roads.

I am a former English Teacher to Japanese High School Students in Japan.
I am a former Counselor for Emotionally Troubled Youth and have worked in other facets of the mental health industry.
I am a daughter, sister, wife and mother of four daughters and one son. My children are my loves and my sibblings my best friends. I talk to my mother every day. Our home is my haven.
I enjoy writing and above all...salvaging and restoring old things to new life. I believe everything should live multiple times be it a bag or a house. One of my purposes is helping them see their way on.
I've experienced some serious health problems which now prevent me from doing many things and am looking to Etsy to keep my love of restoration and preservation alive.
Together with all my girls, we will bring you Vintage Items that we purchase through discernment, that we craft or that come from our personal collection.
Welcome. We look forward to knowing you, sharing your world and ours.
Susan and All the Girls
