I am a wife, mom, designer, daughter, sister. On any given day I might be tackling any one of those roles.
Interests: things i enjoy today include exploring little towns with my family, going to flea markets, gardening especially in the spring, taking photos of my kids, painting & sketching, pottery- both making it and buying it [my husband says i have an unnatural love of bowls!], reading sentimental books about life in small towns, putting my daughters hair in ponytails. if you ask me the same question tomorrow, i might have a diffrent list of answers. oh, yeah, i love a good glass of iced tea any time of the day!

Yes, I figured they were not easy or cheap to upkeep! But they are so very charming and so unique!

There is just something about seeing lots of doors, especially in villages or small towns… so much personality in them!
