Matchmaker. Vintage Recycler. Collector.

I've been collecting vintage and antique finds for most of my life. At some point I realized I might have to share some of them. There is after all only so much room.

There's so much character and personality in things that have been passed along and touched by many hands over the decades-- a magical imperfection imparted by time and use that makes objects all the more beautiful. They speak to us silently. They whisper stories. If we surround ourselves with this kind of beauty, we accept our world for all of it's flaws and find a sense of home and comfort. As we begin listening to the stories, we begin to find ourselves.

When not collecting goodies for my vintage shops , I'm making one of a kind jewelry pieces and ceramic sculpture and pottery, and enjoying my days with family + cats and dog, spending time gardening, walking, reading, blogging, taking photos...
