I'm a stay at home mother of four, with a passion for all things vintage,pink,crafty and girly.I am addicted to ebay. I love vintage fabric, quilts and pottery. I love being crafty, sometimes I knit, sew, scrapbook, make jewelry, quilt,make altered art or whatever other crafty thing that comes my way. I love to go to estate sales, flea markets and thrift stores, you know there is always something fabulous waiting to go home with you. I LOVE my kids, I have three girls and a boy. My girls are 13 and 10, almost 1 and my son is 3. I love traveling, but hate packing, because I might forget something so I ALWAYS over pack. My husband is the best, he puts up with my messy ways and he lets me have pink in just about every room of the house. He also will go to estate sales and go shopping with me. I love to eat great food! I have been taking tap and ballet for the last 5years, boy is it hard to learn to dance in your 30's, I love it!
