Creative life = neglected house. OK, so my floor may not get mopped weekly but I do get to play! Love to spend time photographing pretty images, foraging for treasures at flea markets, addressing envelopes in Copperplate script, sewing silk ribbon roses, decorating my home and cuddling Miss Gracie, the world's smartest cat!
