Deliriously happy to be home from two successful but demanding shows and a move into Splendid, I gaze on meaningful treasures unearthed in rare moments apart from a workload that can be fully appreciated only by other vintage junkers who share this path!!

No signs of "sign" fatigue for me . . . the STARS "star" added to my collection!

Being resolutely impassioned about my chosen profession, moments of self-doubt flee in the private surroundings of my home and family. All the physical pain, sweat equity, angst about the success (or lack thereof) that always attends the risk of doing shows, long hours of planning and designing, mixing and combining sometimes "unmarriageable" but nevertheless worthy merchandise--pass into a pleasant anmesia of the negative and leave an enduring memory of moments of ecstacy and delight . . . the people, the sunshine, the beauty of it all. I'm forever grateful for the many gifts of this life, especially my friends and supporters!

Thanks, Lynne G. -- LOVE this three-tiered stand with seashells & coral in it!!

Thanks, again Joe & Jermonne!

Hi Deb! I wanted to say thank you for your kind words. Things haven't always gone the way I would have imagined them. The closing of my shop has been one of my most challenging moments I can ever's nice to hear words of support and kindness.

Debi, I just want you to know that I think you are amazing. You stand tall against the demands of packing, unpacking, arranging and all the sweat equity that goes into your job. You are a woman of great integrity and honesty, even when those amongst you are not. Continue to hold yourself above the fray girl.

Love you my sister,
