The one thing I am passionate about...
Creating a loving, beautiful, rich and warm home environment for my family with antique furniture, oriental rugs, crystal chandeliers, velvet curtains, hardwoods floors, family photos, fresh flowers, good food, pets, and lots of love and laughs.
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, hanging out in book/music stores, gardening, prowling antique stores, flea markets, thrift stores looking for unique, rustic, worn treasures to decorate my home and garden. I could spend hours in interesting gourmet grocery stores.
The most influential person in my life has been
That he will love my two sons as much as he loves me, and that we could easily blend our two families into one.
The first thing people notice about me
I have a general love for all people and they sense it...I make them feel like they matter, because to me - they do.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I do actually read books, but I rarely find one that I REALLY enjoy. I love hanging out in bookstores though. I like history and biographies more than fiction.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my children
- my incredible can-do spirit and happy outlook on life
- my creativity
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I'm self conscious about being so thin.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm easygoing about most things....however I have a real stubborn streak when it comes to buying the "best quality" over "saving a few dollars." Mattresses, linens, appliances, shoes and clothes in particular.
