About Me

I'm a wife, mother and grandmother living in Missouri, USA. My husband and I have owned a small business in the antique market for many years. I love garage sales, thrift stores and antique auctions.

In my spare time, I enjoy drawing artist trade cards and other small mail art. Besides art, I enjoy gardening, genealogy, photography and spending time with family and friends.

Items coming from me will be from a smoke free and pet free environment.


Favorite Crafts

In the past, I've dabbled in a variety of crafts such as ceramics, crochet, drawing, painting, sewing, and wood crafts. I enjoy creating hand drawn ATCs. Most of my work is done with watercolor pencils, color pencils, markers and ink. I really like whimsical art, but do enjoy folk art and other interesting styles.

Birds: Love Bluebirds, Owls, Peacocks, Etc.

Colors: Pink, purple, green and blue are favorites, but I like most colors.

Comment: Hershey, Gettysburg, and Lancaster are among my favorite local places and I'm glad you enjoyed visiting them. When I was twelve, my family took a road trip from Pennsylvania to Oklahoma and crossed the Mississippi River in St. Louis. The reason for taking that route was to see the newly built and very impressive Gateway Arch. Thank you!

Thank you for the envelope full of goodies for my Cheap Postage group October wishlist. Thanks for all the cool stickers, glue dots, and postcards! I'm glad you asked, since I'm a bit disorganized right now. I would have gotten to it eventually, but who knows when...

Thank you Mary for the large envelope full of wonderful items from my Oct. Wish List. I shared the Twinnings Breakfast Tea with my mother. She loves that tea also. You are so kind.

TeaNi on Oct 23, 2018:

Thank you so very much
for granting an October CPG wish for me- I absolutely love the beautiful vintage Victorian postcard you sent me! I especially love that is features 2 little girls but also that it has an Easter Greeting; Easter is probably my favorite holiday to celebrate. I will frame it and use it in my spring time decorating :) Right now I have 2 vintage Halloween postcards displayed in frames- this was a delightful surprise!
