I am a collector and I love to shop in thrift shops, garage sales, and estate sales. I like hand painted "rose" plates, tea cups, tea pots, old linens, pictures, and many more things. I have lots of them, and hope some day to display some more of them, in the meantime I will keep on collecting! I also love shells, and have quite a few boxes that are different shapes and some are old and some new, but I like them all. I like to garden, and had some terrific Dahlias last year as well as Hollyhock and various other flowers. I walk 5 days a week and keep in shape that way. I also volunteer at a local senior center and belong to an antique club. I keep very busy and love it!!! I enjoy visiting with my grandchildren and children. Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!
