I am married and have four grown children. We have lived in our current home for over 20 years. I was born and raised in California but spent three years in Virginia after I was married. I think I am an easterner at heart. My children have attended schools all over the country and we have enjoyed visiting them wherever they have been. There are beautiful places in every state we have visited.
I love to decorate, read, quilt, bake and spend time with family and friends.
I love handwritten letters, slow cooked foods, anything old fashioned, history, beautiful gardens, fine linens, art, and most of all my family!
This is the alcove in my living room. The chairs and table we found in the gold country while out on a Sunday drive. The chairs and table are Eastlake design made about 1870's. For our house, built in 1873, they were perfect!
