I am a self taught mixed media artist and instructor living in Virginia with my Husband and our family of fur babies. I love all things vintage and strive to use those discarded bits of artistic flotsam and jetsum in my creations. I also love finding those treasures that others can use to feather their souls and their nests so please check out my Etsy Shop as well. Thank you for stopping by.

Oh that candle holder is to die for Lesley! And BTW I love your new blog. So bright and lovely. I pretty much can't look at the black blogs anymore because they bother my eyes. I have you in my Google reader but I did the Friend connect thing too so I can enter just in case that candle holder would make it's way east. :-)
