About Me

I am a happily married soon to be empty nester with a 21 year old son and 18 year old daughter.. I am a freelancer, property manager, personal assistant, and I help my husband with his home improvement business. In my free time I enjoy photography, road trips, and creating art. I love to shop at second hand stores, antique shops, and garage sales! I have a fascination with retro advertising and signs, and have started an instagram page dedicated to all of the old signs I photograph while on my road trips.

Heart Ratings

I give them out based on how much effort you put into a swap, but also would gladly give you one if you included small broken pieces of stained glass, sea glass, old broken tile pieces, or old broken dish pieces for my mosaics. I am really wanting to put one together right now, but I am having a hard time finding unique colors for the piece I want to do. Would love shades of blue, teal, aqua, purples, yellows, reds, and pinks!
