About Me

I am recently retired and now have the time to truly stop and "smell the roses"! I was diagnosed with both breast and kidney cancers eleven years ago. What an adventure that was! Early detection saved my life and I have much to be thankful for. I am quite fond of unique and antique items. More often than not I will find something interesting at an antique mall, flea market, or garage sale that will call out to me. I've purchased a multitude of dustable "treasures" that way. I enjoy decorating for all holidays, but Halloween is my favorite. I like to do counted cross stitch on aged linen using reproduction sampler patterns and/or primitive charts. I'm a big fan of note papers, ribbons, and vintage stickers, too.

Comment: Sylvia, it was like Christmas at my house today! The kitties and I did a happy dance (clumsily, since my left foot is in an orthopedic boot after having had a dreadful surgery) while looking at everything you sent! The ATC is simply adorable...the TH paper dolls are one of the best things he's ever done, in my opinion, and your super-duper collage-y background is amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart...you really did make my day!
