Stan, Jody and Maggie
We've always enjoyed gardening, photography, art and crafts. It's been a way to be creative in many different ways. Something we've always done for ourselves and our kids. The garden is our daily get-a-way: a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass a wine at night. Now that we're empty-nesters we have more time to do projects that help us connect with the kids, family and friends.
That's where the blog came from, a little different way to communicate like "Skype".
I have been shopping at antique stores and garage sales ever since I can remember with my mother. Her love of finding new treasures inspired me to always be looking for that irresistible item. I love creating something new out of something old. Painting old furniture, stamping and paper crafts are my passion. I love being imaginative in the kitchen with recipes and decorating ideas. After my dream came true of being in Romantic Homes, it motivated me to start an Etsy shop. Being creative and blogging are what I am most passionate about.
