About Me

I am a wife and step-mom. I worked for 17 years in Construction and Architecture before I got married in May 2013. I have three step-children-Gabby, 17; David, 14; and CC, 12

I live in the Piedmont of Virginia. It's a beautiful part of the state with rolling hills, farms, wineries and tons of history.

I took an extended break from the ATC world, but am back now and look forward to getting my creative juices flowing again!

Favorite Music

I like all kinds of music, although I mostly listen to country and folk-rock.

Favorite Books

My favorite things to read are biographies, true crime stories and historical non-fiction. I've always been a big reader, but unfortunately don't read as much as I'd like to.

Favorite Movies

I love to watch Classic B/W movies, action movies, dramatic movies and thrillers. I can get lost in Bette Davis movies......she's my favorite actress.

Favorite Television

I like documentaries, crime dramas, and English TV shows.

Favorite Crafts

I have many craft favorites and just like to be creative as often as I can.

Items I'd Like to Receive

Ribbon of any kind, pretty and fun papers, embellishments, stickers, cardstock, cut-outs, vintage postcards or pictures, vintage/antique hankies, handmade jewelry, bakers twine, antique buttons, glitter, watercolor paper

Obsessions

Don’t let the heading fool you.....it’s all quite innocent.

I am an avid Vintage Pyrex collector......I have a smallish collection and am always on the lookout for pieces to add to it.

I also love vintage linens-mostly pillow cases and twin flat sheets. I just love how colorful and unique a lot of the cases are.

Lularoe-need I say more? LOL....seriously, just how many pairs of leggings does one woman need?

My husband indulges my “obsessions”, so I try to be mindful when I’m on the hunt.
