Welcome, and thank you for visiting my blog.

This is me, finally putting my feet in the river again...recently on a trip with my oldest son and my two beautiful grown up grandkids to the Yuba River at Bridgeport Bridge in California. The Bridgeport Covered Bridge has one of the longest clear span of any surviving covered bridges in the world. Built in 1862, a historical landmark and is currently undergoing a complete restoration. 

I was fortunate to have grown up in the beautiful Northern California Gold County. I have moved back to my hometown and am living in a little Farmhouse Cottage in the Country on 20 acres with ponds and a place for animals - large and small & gardens galore. I'm living a handmade life, creating a home and a more self-reliant, self-sustainable lifestyle for myself and my loved ones. living life the old-fashioned down home way...

My love for selling Home Decor pieces and creating Handmade items goes back 30 yrs ago when I started my own handmade business, selling dried flower arrangements at Craft Fairs. I opened my first Brick & Mortar shop 5 yrs later in the Northern California Gold Country.

As life changes happen; what has never changed is my love of finding, creating and sharing those items with others to love and to enjoy as much as I do. I only sell what I love and what I would have in my own Farmhouse Decor Home. These days, I've turned to the online way of selling. I love what I do...it’s the thrill of the hunt that I am passionate about...finding treasures to embellish my life or to pass it on to someone else to enjoy.

If I'm not on the hunt for treasures; I'm in my studio creating handmade pieces, in my kitchen cooking from scratch, in my gardens or tending to my little farm animals. Building my Vintage Farmhouse Lifestyle with a modern day Homestead Spirit.

I truly love what I do and I hope you do too!

Sincerely & Alway with Love,
