About

I love all things vintage. I have quite a collection of antiques .I remember as a little girl, my mom and grandmom would take me to Estate sales and Auctions. They had a love of old things which they have passed on to me. I love to decorate and even use some of these old pieces. I love to learn about them and how they were made and used back in the day . They just do not make things like they used to.
I have started selling some of these relics because I have an overflow. I just cannot keep and/or display everything that I have inherited. The name of my shop is dedicated to my mother-in-law, who we lost tragically 4 years ago. When my children were little they called her Mimmy instead of grandma. Most of the collection I have here on Etsy are from her. I will keep the tradition alive by keeping my eyes open for new 'old things' to add to the collection. My mentors are gone now but their love of all things 'old' lives…

My mentors are gone now but their love of all things 'old' lives in me.
I also am an artist. I do all kinds of paintings, on all kinds of mediums and where I live is an inspiration. I also love gardening, it is what I do to relax. And I have been learning how to use some of the old things I have in my gardens as well. It really sets them apart and gives my garden character, old time character.
I have a fantastic husband and we have been married for almost 33 years. I have 4 grown children and 7 grandchildren. I live in the in the beautiful and remote mountains of Virginia, surrounded by National Forest. I love the trees and wildlife I get to see on a daily basis. I thank God for my life, for without Him it would not be meaningful or worthwhile.
I will try to sell only the highest quality antiques and will describe what I know or find on an item. Antiques are a passion, so I will continue to add new items as I find them. I will also tell of any defects, scratches, etc on an item. Take a walk back in time and enjoy.
