Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

My Vintage Santa Collection
I am always a little bit sad to say goodbye to these jolly old guys. I love them so! Each has his own special personality, despite being dressed the same as all the others. I have been collecting them, along with vintage elves and pixies too for about 15 years or so. They hang out in my kitchen during the holidays.
A few close-ups of my favorite Vintage Santa's
This is the one that began this jolly obsession, I mean collection... He was my Great Aunt Elsie's and I have memories of him at her house in the 70's. He is a music box.
