My talented friend Maria (she creates wonderful things using vintage tin tiles) has such a lovely, quaint and vintage inspired home. She is a collector of sorts and has surrounded herself with all the things she loves, the old....the rusty....the worn....sometimes finding new uses for the things she has collected, creating a space that is warm and inviting. Below are pictures of her lovely home that I wanted to share with you:
Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
