About Me

After almost a yearlong hiatus, we finally sold our house in Michigan, relocated to southern Kentucky, and got most of our stuff unpacked. I've got most of my art supplies and postcards unpacked so I can start swapping again, yay me!!!

I own and operate a cleaning service business, and I help my husband with his home improvement business. In my free time I enjoy photography, road trips, gardening, hiking, 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.

Comment: Thank you for the neat postcards you sent! The Mackinac Island postcard is cool, but I like them all. The vintage ones are always so interesting to see because of the different architecture back then.
